2022 Health/Fitness Goals

My health journey kicked off in 2020, where I started off with Beachbody working out 3-5 times a week. But then I yoyoed in the winter leading in to 2021 and gained back 10 lbs. This past year, I buckled down. I stopped worrying about fads and measuring out my food and restricting myself. I also steered away from Beachbody and started true strength training and running about 4 days a week. From May to October, I didn’t see the scale go down that much, however just viewing side by side pictures, the difference is amazing. Seeing that is encouragement to continue my journey and continue living a balanced life.

Fitness Challenges

  • #Gymshark66
    • Can start whenever
    • Decide on 3 rules for yourself (Ex: try a new recipe, drink your water) and follow them for 66 days
    • Share your journey
    • Encourage others going through the same journey

    • One workout must be outdoors
    • Follow a diet
    • No alcohol or cheat meals

Goals

  • Get my certification for nutrition coaching and CPT (NASM)
  • Cancel Beachbody membership
    • I will always be grateful for how I started, but at this point, I’m not sure if my journey requires that anymore. Really it’s more of a financial decision
  • Perfect my pushups
    • No more modifying with knees down
  • Explore new gyms
    • Current membership is with Planet Fitness. I want to explore more to see what other options for equipment I could try. Also the PF that I go to is kind of small so on busy days all the equipment I like to use is taken. Unless I go super early in the morning.
  • Run an entire 5k
    • Currently I can do a little over a mile without stopping
  • Start crossfit training
  • Continue working out 7 days a week

Body/Numbers

I want to say up front that this is so low on my priorities list it’s not funny. I don’t care about the scale. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to go backwards, however, I don’t need to obsess over the numbers anymore. From May to October of 2021 I barely saw any difference on the scale. The difference were the side-by-side photos that I took. That to me just shows that it shouldn’t matter to me anymore. I’m just throwing these numbers out there almost as a way to track my progress….?

  • Lost 10% body fat (currently 34.7)
  • Get down to the 130 range (currently 153.8lbs)
    • I want to point out that at the start of my journey I was around 215lbs……
    • Last years starting point was around 190
  • Pant size 4….?
    • Again, this does not actually matter to me!
    • 2020 size: 16
    • 2021: 12
    • Now: 8…almost a 6
  • Diet/Nutrition

As I’m learning more about nutrition, my goal would be to continue transitioning into a more clean diet and steer away from the processed foods. One thing that really helped in 2021 was to not restrict myself. On days I had my period, if I wanted a Nutty Buddy bar and a bowl of ice cream, I let myself indulge. The majority of the I was eating a lot of fresh fruits and veggies. A big thing for me was keeping up with my hydration. What some people don’t know is a lot of time you’ll think you’re hungry but you’re actually thirsty.

That is it for my 2022 health goals! I really am excited for this year and what it holds for me. I’ve never felt in such a good place before and I couldn’t be happier.

As always, thank you so much for reading, and until next time……..
