MAMAVATION MONDAY: Signing up for 5K's, Sickness and Health

After last week, I feel better about myself and I am now trying to come up with some attainable goals for myself as the new year is coming up quickly. However, these are goals, not resolutions. A lot of times, resolutions set us up to fail. We go at it hard for a week or two and it all starts to fade quickly. My goals are to: *sign up for 13 different 5K's. I would love to try a 10K or even a half marathon by the end of 2013 but if I don't get up to that point, I will stick with the 5K's and be proud of myself for making it to 13 of them. *lose 14 pounds by July 15th. I will be a bridesmaid in my brother's wedding on July 19th and I would love to reach my goal for the wedding. That would allow me 7 months for me to lose those 14 pounds and would make an average of losing 2lbs. each month. That is not a huge number to lose but along with that comes toning up and firming all muscles. I think the running will help out a great deal with this goal. *I will strive to work out at least 3-5 days a week by doing circuit training, weight training and running/walking. *I would also love to help my entire family to become healthier. I want my kids to make the life changes I am making as well and live healthier lives. It is important to start young with healthy habits. I am sick right now so my workouts will have to wait until I am back to 100% because with my sore throat and cough, I am struggling a bit to breathe, even when just sitting. There is no way I can do anything remotely close to working out in this condition. What are your health goals for the new year? Will you wait until January 1 to start or are you starting now?


  1. Hope you feel better soon. Awesome goals!!

  2. I hope you feel better soon. I am starting to feel sick and it is not fun

  3. You can totally do this! I love setting goals instead of making resolutions - they're so much more likely to succeed. Right now I'm just focusing on the next 5 pounds. Instead of the bottom line, my goal is to keep losing the next 5 pounds. :-) So far it's working! LOL Otherwise my goals look a lot like yours!
