As you roll around the house stuffed with turkey, stuffing and pie, think about what you would like to accomplish before the new year.
I am challenging each and every one of you to set a goal. 5 weeks. Thanksgiving to New Years.
What will you do every single day? Be realistic. Will you wake up every morning and start the day with 10 pushups and 20 squats? Will you run at least one mile every day? Go to the gym? At least 30 minutes of physical activity of every day?
Here’s my goal:
I would love to go for the Runner’s World Run Streak but I don’t want to set myself up for failure right now. So... from Thanksgiving to New Years I will walk at least 10,000 steps every day. This is a realistic goal that will benefit both my dog and me. I have a Fitbit. Most days I am over 10,000 steps. Some days I am close. Other days I am nowhere near my goal. I am committed. Actually, WE are committed.
Now is the time. Don’t fall into the holiday season trap. Get started on your goals early so it becomes a habit by the start of the 2015.
