I have a couple of goals for this year... some of them are vague, some of them are specific. I just need something to work toward :)
Have fun working out. I was pretty burnt out with my former gym routine (mostly running, some elliptical/biking and weight machines). Since I've added kickboxing, I definitely feel challenged. It's really fun, even though my shins are all bruised up from kicking the bag.
Set new PR's for 10K and half marathon distances (without burning out again). Over the past few months, I've gotten a lot faster, but I haven't actually been in a 10K race or a half for more than a year. I'd like to see my pace get faster during training, and also hope to see it pay off during a race.
Maintain my weight so that my wedding dress still fits in August! I just bought my wedding dress about a month ago, and I just LOVE it. It fits perfectly, without any alterations. So I'm hoping to maintain my weight/size by eating healthy and working out.
Be better about spending/budgeting money. We're hoping to close a deal on a house, and I'm trying to pay down my student loans and credit card also. I've been making some good progress, but need to make sure I keep it up! I've been using Mint.com to help budget and keep track of my spending and it's been pretty helpful.
Did you make any resolutions or goals?
