Final 10 for '10

We all know I am a goals girl. I find I am more successful at things when I have a goal in mind. As we are approaching the end of the year, I decided it’s time to set some guidelines to get myself through the holiday season.

In January I did a health and fitness challenge called 10 in ’10. The premise was setting healthy lifestyle goals to accomplish during the first ten weeks of the year. You can read about my original goals here.  

Because we are in the last ten weeks of the year, I thought it might be a good time to do a similar challenge to wrap up 2010. In fact, most of my goals will be the same (with the addition of a few new ones). I was doing really well with them in the spring, but they somewhat fell by the wayside over the summer because we did a lot of traveling. 

Here are the goals I will be working to meet over the next ten weeks:

Goal 1: Swim laps at least once a week
Goal 2: Maintain a fitness schedule of at least 3 cardio and 3 strength sessions a week
Goal 3: Go to a swim stroke clinic
Goal 4: Read a new book on clean eating
Goal 5: Food journaling at least 4 days a week
Goal 6: Go to Yoga or Pilates class at least 5 times
Goal 7: Try a new recipe from Clean Eating recipe

I like to set goals that I have to work hard to achieve, but are not impossible to achieve. You will never hear me say that my goal is to lose Xlbs in a certain time period. I can't control what my body does...only what I do. I am going to be working to achieve these goals while traveling in and out of town for holidays, conquering exams, and battling wintertime laziness.

I’ll be updating with my weekly blog posts to hold myself accountable. If anyone wants to join in and set health/fitness goals for themselves, let me know!

Do you have any goals to help you through the holiday season?
