Happy new year! It’s hard to believe it’s already 2016. Today is the first day of classes for me back after the Christmas break. While I definitely enjoyed my time off from school, I’m also excited to be back! Today I’ll be sharing my January goals. Before I go into them though I wanted to recap how my December goals went.
Consistent workouts. I stepped up my game in December when it came to working out consistently. For the most part I worked out at least 3 days a week. While making sure I’m active takes up time and energy, I’m so glad I made it a priority even though I had finals going on too. It gave my brain a break from studying and it also felt great to not be sitting at a desk! Once I was done with finals most of my workouts were done at home instead of at the gym at school.
Go to bed earlier. The time that I’ve been going to bed has slowly been getting later and later over the last little while. I’m one of those people who needs 7 or 8 hours most nights. If not I end up being grumpy and have a hard time concentrating. I wanted to make sure I gave myself the best opportunity to do well on my finals, so I made sure I was in bed at a decent time in December. I think there were one or two nights over the holidays that I stayed up, but that’s it.
Now for my January goals….
Watch less TV. Having two weeks off between semesters meant that I spent more time watching TV that I would usually. Sometimes it’s a relaxing thing for me – it feels good to zone out sitting on the couch watching something fun. While that’s fine once in awhile, I want to make sure that it doesn’t become a habit. With school starting up again most of my days will be spent either in classes or reading/studying, so I definitely won’t have as much time as I have had in the last few weeks.
Use MyFitnessPal to track my food. While I think I generally eat pretty good, I want to make an effort this month to kick it up a notch. To keep myself account able I’ll be tracking my intake on MyFitnessPal. I’ve found it a really useful tool to keep myself accountable in the past, so I thought I’d try it again. I know it works for me. It’s so easy to log things after meals on MFP. All it takes is a couple minutes and I’m done.
