New Year, same me!
Sorry for the short absence on here – I had a pretty busy end to 2016 and thought I’d give myself a few days off to get back on top of it. However, I’m back and ready to kick 2017 off with an exciting one: my 2017 challenges.
Towards the end of the year you always get the same question – what are your New Years Resolutions going to be? I find picking resolutions hard, so I usually opt for goals. My 2017 goals are at the end of this blog post but first I wanted to chat about my challenges. This year I’ve decided to do 12 monthly challenges – some are fitness related, but some are not. I’ve chosen them because I want to push myself, see what I’m capable of. For some of you the challenges I’ve set might not seem like much, but I’m excited to give them a go and see if I can do them all! Here they are:
My 2017 Monthly Challenges
January – No alcohol for a month
February – Pescatarian for a month (no meat except fish)
March – Word of the day (use a dictionary to find a word I didn’t know and use it in a sentence that day)
April – Home cooked meal every day (it’s easy to give in to temptation and get a ready made pasta meal / porridge sachet so I’m going to have at least one meal a day where everything has been made from scratch)
May – Take a photo every day
June – Run a mile every day (at least)
July – Save £2 a day (and then buy myself something pretty at the end of the month – handy as my birthday will be coming up!)
August – No bread for a month
September – Stretching every day
October – Watch a film a night
November – Puzzle a day (either a crossword, a sudoku or some other form of puzzle – have to complete one a day)
December – No chocolate for a month (this one might be my most difficult! I’m a massive chocoholic so challenging myself to this will be torture! Includes hot chocolate, chocolate flavour biscuits etc.)
My 2017 Goals
Here are a few little extra goals I want to hit this year:
- Complete at least 5 running races (with 2 marathons)
- Go somewhere new (abroad)
- Explore more of the UK
