January Goals

Since I've been away overseas, today was the first opportunity of the new year to assess where I'm at (by way of a fitness test - chin ups, push ups and a run). My goal for January is to continue training consistently (Monday to Saturday) and to challenge myself with each workout (thanks to Sam for the reminder!), so that I improve upon my results when I do another fitness test at the start of February.

I'm also working on my water intake (again!). I'm aiming to drink a glass of water with each meal in January - hopefully it will have become a habit by the end of the month!

I also have a mid-term goal to work on. It's 15 weeks today until my birthday. I'd like to try and lose half a kilo a week between now and then, to get me from 63.5kg to 56kg. I'm still just gradually increasing the amount of exercise I do (I should hit 5 hours a week by the end of the month), so I'll see where that takes me for starters.

Thought I'd leave you with a pic of the plums that Rob picked off three of the trees in our front yard this afternoon.

Awesome goals Char, look forward to following your progress!... Your home grown fruit looks fantastic, bet it taste 10x better than the fruit market! ;)

Thanks Chelle!

Mmm, plums. Good job on drinking more water. Water tastes best with meals, anyway, because it doesn’t disguise or affect the taste of your food.
