Every January people make resolutions and intend to stick with them for the entire year. But how many people are actually successful at following through with their New Years Resolution past the month of January? Not too many.
This year, I decided to do my resolution differently. Instead of giving up something or changing a habit for 2013, there are a lot of things I want to do and a lot of goals that I want to achieve. I have set aside one goal for each month.
Here are a few that I have set for myself:
- January: Attend every Friday morning Cycling class
- February: Volunteer at a homeless shelter
- March: St. Patrick’s day 5k run
- April: Read a new book
- May: Raise money for and walk the entire route of the Walk for Hunger
Whether they’re fitness related or not, make sure you are setting small, but realistic goals. Maybe you want to come to the gym three days each week instead of your usual two, or eat one extra serving of vegetables each day. Maybe you want to read an entire book every month.
Whatever your goals may be, have fun and enjoy what 2013 has to offer.
