Goals & Rewards

Goal-setting & incorporating a reward system is very motivating.  Here are some of mine for 2014!

Fitness/Health Goals:

  1. Hit the gym at least 3x/week.  No excuses unless I’m sick or injured!
  2. Incorporate active rest days into my schedule.  On rest days, don’t just sit around.  Take a hike, go on an evening walk with my family, do squats/leg lifts during commercials, etc.
  3. Try new fitness activities.  Pilates, TRX, yoga, etc.  Just keep things interesting & constantly change it up to challenge my body.
  4. Search for more paleo/clean eating recipes to cook for my family.  We can all benefit from eating less processed/sugary foods.
  5. Reach my goal weight by my birthday in July.  Book a photo shoot with my photographer husband in a really cute sundress & post on my blog.  🙂
  6. Buy a pair of goal weight jeans & hang up in my bedroom.  (Helllloooooo size 6!!!)
  7. Hike up to the top of Clingman’s Dome with my family this year.  In fact, go hiking more often!

*I’ll add more goals as they come to mind!
