I believe that having specific goals is important when wanting to achieve something. So here are my health and fitness goals that I want to make happen.
Compete in a 10k race – I want to compete in a Marathon one day but that is a long time away. I know once I finish my first 10km race it will be the glorious end of the un-fit, un-healthy Katie.
Be able to run 5km without stopping – This has long been a dream of mine. It seems like a big mile-stone that will finally let me feel like a real runner.
Be able to run for 10 minutes without stopping – I’m going to get that amazing feeling back!
I don’t have long term, mid term and short term goals for my health but here are a couple of goals that I want to achieve.
Quit drinking V - V is an energy drink that tastes amazing and I am totally addicted to it. I have 1 a day and sometimes 2 if my craving calls. I know it’s pickling my insides and is really not good for me what with all the caffeine and sugar. The healthy part of me wants to quit but the un-healthy of me really doesn’t. And so, starting tomorrow I am going to stop drinking V (that un-healthy part of myself is screaming in frustration).
Swap unhealthy snacks for healthier snacks - I love biscuits and chocolate... and anything else that has no preparation and tastes good. I want more vitamins and less sugar so I’m going to make an effort to eat healthier snacks.
So this is it, I am going to do the best I can to achieve these goals. I REALLY want to compete in that 10k race, I really want to become a runner.
