Happy New Year’s Eve, everyone! As this year comes to an end, it’s time to reflect on the past year. I have had a lot happen in the past year….I completed my dietetic internship, wrote/defended my thesis, received my Master’s degree, got my first “big girl” job, became an aunt, moved back home to be closer to family, lived by myself! Those are just a few of the many things that happened in 2012!!
I don’t like to make New Year’s resolutions…I prefer to use the new year as a time to make new goals instead. When I write goals down, I am much more likely to try my best to achieve them. So, here is a blog post about my 2013 goals…that way you can all help keep me on track to meet my goals 🙂
1> Run a half marathon. In order to complete this goal, I will hopefully run a 5k, 10k and eventually a half marathon. I am NOT a runner….so this is a difficult goal for me. But, I’m ready for the challenge!
2>Be as healthy as I can be. This goal includes my eating habits and exercise habits. My workout routine changes frequently, so I don’t want to list specific workouts that I will do…just as much as I can as often as I can. As far as food, I eat healthy most of the time. But, I want to focus on this a little more in the upcoming year!
3> Complete my group fitness certification. This has been a goal of mine for a long time. Time to make it happen!
4> Buy a house. Definitely not a fitness/health related goal…but an exciting one! This will hopefully happen sooner than later!
5> Be more consistent with my blog. I am hoping to blog at least twice/week.
6> Start my own nutrition-related business. As a dietitian, I am passionate about helping people improve their health. I enjoy working at a hospital/nursing home, but also want to start helping people in a more preventative nature. If any of you are dietitians, you know that the reimbursement/insurance billing is very confusing for dietitians! (So, let me know if you have any tricks to share)!!
I think these goals are a great starting point! I will try to do monthly updates on what I have accomplished/what goals I have added!
What are your goals for the New Year??? Do you like to make New Year’s resolutions???
