This year I have three health goals:
- Reduce Body Fat to 15%
- Exercise 4+ Times per Week
- Complete the I Quit Sugar Challenge
Reduce Body Fat to 15%
In reality, I am shooting for 18%. I am currently between 25 and 30% body fat and most of it is around my stomach and hips. Yes, I developed the dreaded muffin top for all the sweets I have been eating. Reducing my body fat is actually the all encompassing goal for the year. To do this I have to eat right, exercise, reduce stress, drink plenty of water, and get enough sleep. To make sure I reach my goal I created the other two goals you see listed above and below:
1. Exercise 4+ times per week
2. Complete the I Quit Sugar Challenge
Right before our move I stopped working out like I normally do. I just had too much going on with packing, closing, and moving that the last thing I wanted to do was spend more time on my feet. Since moving, things really haven't slowed down. We've been doing renovations all while working full time and going to school. Since moving, my commute has doubled in the afternoon, meaning I get home even later every day. It has been hard to get into the swing of things, but at the end of December I began making an effort to workout 4 times a week. To help me achieve this goal I set it up in GoalTracker which allows me to check off the days I do and do not workout. This app also allows you to set an alarm, add additional information, and see charted results. It is an excellent goal tracking app to start new habits, especially those that require you to do something every day or most days.
I have high expectations this year, but I think if I stick to it, it will be a breeze.
What are your health goals this year?
