Now that I no longer feel like death it’s time to post my goals for the year. Usually I make goals by semesters however, this is my last semester in school (!!!!!) so I decided to make goals for the whole year. I guess I’m jumping on the resolution bandwagon. But first, my inspiration board:
So in no particular order here are my 2011 resolutions:
1. Compete in 1 race per month
Self explanatory. For January I am looking at a 5-miler in Clearwater that goes over the bridge I am dreading for my half in April. It will be good practice.
2. Run three times/week
This is easier said than done when it’s freezing outside. Lately, Florida weather has been gorgeous but I know that the cold will creep back in sooner or later. Since I am graduating in May and have no ideas or expectations of where my career will take me, I need to learn to run in all weather conditions.
3. Set out time to stretch daily
After an IT-Band issue and 3 months off of running this summer I learned the hard way how important it is to stretch….even if it’s just 5 minutes a day.
4. Get Straight As this semester
I don’t think this will be a problem. 😉 I’m a smart girl.
5. Fill out Job applications every week and secure a job by May.
After hearing all kinds of horror stories about not being able to find a job I am determined to put myself out there as much as I can in order start my career.
6. Workout 6 days a week.
Since the beginning of November my workout schedule has taken a beating. I have had friends visit me from VA in November, Thanksgiving, Exams, Christmas, New Years, and another friend to visit. I have put on about 5 pounds which is noticeable on a 5’2 frame and I’d like to get back to my pre-holiday weight and fitness level.
7. Eat more vegetables.
8. Take my pugs to the park every Sunday
9. Work on being more laid back
I admit, sometimes I can have a temper. Most of the time it’s stress induced from school. For this goal I will be exploring coping techniques. Caitlin at Healthytippingpoint.com just posted some which I think are great.
10. Get my “special project” (secondary data analysis) published.
This will be an excellent boost to my resume. Enough said.
