At the beginning of 2017 I set myself 4 goals to achieve. Since we’re in March already, and we’re a quarter of the way through the year I thought it was time to do an update.
The first goal was to take charge of my health. I’d started this towards the end of 2016 so it was natural to keep it going in 2017. I’m preparing fresh and healthy lunches as well as watching what I eat in the evenings. I’ve also started trying to exercise twice a week, although I’m not always making twice but I have lost over a stone which I’m pleased about.
As part of trying to be healthier I’m doing more walking and have started Couch to 5K. I want to be able to complete a parkrun. I’m not bothered about running all of it just yet but would like to complete it in under an hour. Even if it’s 59:59! I’m using the medals I’m earning through Virtual Runner UK to keep me in check and motivate me to keep trying.
I started off really well with this goal. I read three books quite quickly but then haven’t read anything for a while. I need to get back in to this. I have however been listening to audio books. My husband doesn’t enjoy reading but wants to read the Harry Potter books so we’ve downloaded them and have been listening to them. We’re currently on the second book.
I’m actually surprised how easy I’ve found this one. I was dreading learning how to say no to people but actually I’ve been true to myself and have turned down social opportunities I’m just not interested in.
So that’s my 2017 goals update. I hope everyone else is managing to stay on track with their personal goals.
