Instead of setting goals for the entire year, I’ve decided to set break it and set monthly goals. This will give me more flexibility, especially as we get further into 2019, and focus on different areas in my life through the year. So let’s check out my goals for January!
I don’t think I meditated at all in December and I’d really like to get back into the habit. I’ve also found a new app (Insight Timer) which has a ton of free, guided meditations which I think will really help me get back into the habit. Since I wasn’t paying for Calm, I only had the timer meditations which weren’t guided and I found it hard to focus.
Finish Three Books
My goal for 2019 is to read 36 books, which is up from the 27 books I read in 2018. I already have three books I’m partially through from the library (that I’m on the waitlist for so I can finish), plus I have a couple of books currently checked out and the fourth book in the Wayward Children series comes out next week. So I’m confident I’ll be reading at least three books this month!
Get Back to Foam Rolling Post-Run
Another thing I’ve been slacking on is foam rolling after runs, my foam rollers might be collecting dust bunnies and I can feel the difference in my body. So I’m getting back on track with a quick foam rolling session after every run!
Try Three Recipes from Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow.
Mike got me Run Fast. Cook Fast. Eat Slow. and I’m really excited to try some new recipes! Of course, if I didn’t make this a goal, I might not crack open the book for a while. So I’m going to try at least three recipes from it in January. Some that have piqued my interest are:
Beet Blueberry Molasses Superhero Muffins
Sweet Potato Waffles
Mediterranean Hummus Wrap
Veggie Lover’s Pasta Salad
Burger Salad Bowl
Creamy Ginger Cashew Sauce
Ginger Molasses Cookies
