Resolutions...

Everyone has made at least one of those grand sweeping New Years Resolutions.

I'm going to lose 50 pounds.
I'm going to exercise an hour every day.
I'm never going to eat junk food again.

I've made a few myself. Fortunately I've learned a few things and now set realistic goals instead of sweeping resolutions. This year is no exception. I have financial goals, work goals, home goals and of course health and fitness goals. But since this is a weight loss blog I'll only post those.

1. Reach my goal weight. This is only 19 pounds away and so I think a year is a totally reasonable time frame to achieve this.
2. Run a 5K this summer in under 30 minutes. I can do the 30 minutes right now on the treadmill so again a totally doable goal if I stick with my workouts.
3. Get to the point where I'm only having "treats" once or twice a week. But I'm tackling this slowly. For January the goal is to limit my morning snack to fruits and veggies. In February, it will be to not have "treats" before 3pm. And so on until I meet my goal.

I'm pretty pleased with this but definitely open to feedback.

Great goal to push for a 5K under 30 minutes. I'm working towards getting my 5K time down, too.

From one Team Lynn member to another, lets kick some ass!

Sounds like some realistic, yet challenging goals that you have set for yourself!

I'll be running my first 5K in March and looking forward to it for sure!

Looking forward to chatting with you more! Go Team Lynn!
