Trying to Simplify

[Originally Published 01.27.2013]

It’s taken me a while to write and publish this post. It’s been written and deleted many times.

I was hoping to have an upbeat post with a list of my goals for this year. Sadly, this month had been a difficult month for me health-wise.

I’m still dedicated to improving my health and fitness but I’ve had to take a serious look at my goals. On a good note, I’ve been doing well nutritionally and started juicing again on a regular basis. My fitness goals are needing some revisions. While I did get a few runs and workouts in these past few weeks, I’ve had to deal with allergic reactions, high blood pressure, and the flu!

So instead of big, lofty, “all or nothing” fitness goals, I’m going to be working towards small victories first. Simple, right?

This month, I saw my doctor about my high blood pressure. We adjusted my meds a bit and it looks like things are getting better… back to normal.

So my simplified health & fitness goals for this year:
1. Continue my vegetarian diet & juice at least 5x a week.
2. Do something active for at least 30 minutes every day. (It does not need to be part of a workout program
3. Drink more water.
4. Get more quality sleep. (I will have a post about my recent sleep study soon)
5. Stress less. (Not sure how to quantify this one, though)

So, what goals did you make for this year/month? How are you doing so far?
