My goals for 2013- what are yours?

I am not a resolution-setter and I never have been one.  I’m not sure why, I just am not good at following through with them, so I don’t bother.  If I want to make a change, I just do it when I want to do it, and don’t wait for a certain date.  Like when I started running, it was the beginning of the summer and I saw the Couch to 5K listed as a group option in my church booklet and just decided to go for it.  But, goals are a good thing, and they can be measured more easily, in my opinion.  They can be added to, changed and achieved!

So I have a few goals for 2013 and I thought I would share them with you:

1. Make sure my husband and I keep up with our new healthy eating.  We are trying to cook with more fresh ingredients and stay away from pre-packaged items.  This is going to be hard to coupon for, but being healthy is important to us, so we will find a way to shop within our budget.

2. Continue to grow both blogs, Kenosha Coupon Queens and this one.  I plan to use a calendar to schedule things I want to post, and get back into doing match-ups if that’s what people want!  (I can see what are the most popular posts, and the matchups are not popular at all, so I will try something different).

3. Add video to my blogs!  I want to do some how-to’s and reviews using video.  I hope you like them!

4. I want to run 500 miles this year.  That’s a lot, I know, but I am doing good with my current running and will be increasing my mileage as the weeks go on- especially since I’m signed up for the 8k race in April.  I will keep you updated with how I am doing.  I have an app on my iPhone that keeps track for me, but I will enter it in a calendar also, just to make sure I have it all down.  Plus, keeping track of miles is important for knowing when to purchase new shoes.

Do you have goals?  Or do you set resolutions?

    I think I need your help to figure out what shoes I should invest in. I currently have walking shoes since I walk a lot but am not sure if those are good for general workouts or not?

      I was fitted in shoes at a special store. We have Rogan’s here, do you have a Rogan’s? Or a Fleet Feet? They will watch you walk and fit you in the correct shoes for how you walk and what your foot shape is.

      There are Couch to 5K programs available to get you started! That’s where I started so now I am moving up to the next level!

      I can do it! As long as I don’t get injured! I ran 3 miles yesterday and wanted to go and run more today, but I have to ease into the higher number of miles each week!
