T-minus 5 months until I head to California to participate in the Inaugrual Dumbo Double Dare at Disneyland! I am so incredibly excited about this race, but also a little nervous with how little running I have done since the Disney Princess half marathon and the Georgia Publix half marathon.
That being said, I am going to start making small, attainable goals for myself, posting them here, and then debriefing at the end of the month with how I have done.
1. Blog 3-4 times a week
I feel like since my races have been over I haven’t been as active of a blogger, and I want to change that. I am going to start adding more weekly blog posts (Foodie Friday coming this week!) and since my training for the Dumbo Challenge is about to kick into full force, catching you guys up on how it’s going.
2. Run 3x a week
As I mentioned, I want (and need) to pick up my pace and improve my time in my races. I will make it an effort to do two short runs during the week and a longer run on the weekends.
3. Pack mine and hubby’s lunches 2-3 times a week
We have gotten in the habit of eating out for lunch, and that adds up not only on the credit card, but on the scale. I plan to pack healthy and tasty lunches for us to have at work instead of grabbing something fast.
4. Get up better in the mornings
If you don’t already know me, I am NOT a morning person. I will hit the alarm until the last minute when I have just enough time to jump in the shower, throw my hair back, toss on some clothes and get out the door. I want to have time to get ready and stop for a coffee on the way to work and not have to worry about getting into traffic or behind a slow driver.
I realize these aren’t all fitness goals, but we all have areas in our lives where we want to improve, and ultimately these will all benefit me in the end.
What are your April goals? Do you have any favorite lunches that you like to take to work with you?
Until next time,
