The New Year is coming and that means it's time for resolutions! I don't usually make any official ones, but this year I'm thinking about making one or two. I started a thread here for scrapping goals, but I also have a personal goal to work on. I'm hoping to be more active this year, and I'm thinking about how to make this happen. I have two ideas to help make myself successful.
1. I saw on Pinterest the idea of a "tip" jar, where you tip yourself a small amount every time you do a workout. So I'm planning to tip myself $1 for every 15 minutes of exercise and that will be my shopping money. A little external motivation never hurt anybody.
2. Short term, specific goals always seem easier to meet than committing to something for the rest of your life . So, I'm planning to set a specific workout schedule for January and commit to doing it for just four weeks. Then, I'll see how things are going and make a new plan. Also, keeping a log of how I'm feeling and weight/measurements so I can track how the project is going. It's easy to forget how you were at the beginning and feel like you haven't made any progress.
So that's my goal and plan of action for 2013. If you'd like to join me, we could start a thread sharing our daily actions (nothing like some accountability to keep you going). Also, feel free to share other goals and see if anyone is joining you in that!
