It’s that time again to think about goals for the upcoming year. While I don’t believe in making sweeping resolutions, I do like to set in place some behaviors or themes to guide me to achieving my goals. Last year I adopted the word, “quality” as my motto for 2016. I worked on having quality runs, eating more quality food and having more quality relationships. I did make progress in all of those areas and I’d like to go even further. For 2017, I am keeping “quality” as a theme and adding “focus” as my word of the year.
Focus & Quality Goals
Focus on spending quality time with family and friends who make me happy. Life is too short to spend time with people who bring negative energy into our lives.
Continue to focus on eating quality foods to fuel my body. Hosting Meatless Monday has really pushed me to want to create healthy and quality meals and I love to share them. I never expected I would spend so much time in the kitchen and love it! Side note: I got a little off track on my vacation but I am back in focus.
Stop trying to do everything! Focus on doing things that make me happy and learning to say no sometimes. This will drastically improve the quality of my stress level.
I mentioned a few weeks ago, that I wanted to focus on bettering my sprint triathlon performance this year. After racing this distance for a number of years, I am ready to take a different approach to my training and improve my times. This means that I plan to focus on shorter runs and adding in more quality swim and bike sessions. I will be keeping my runs to 10K and under until after tri season.
I plan to continue to focus on writing quality blog posts and remain genuine here on Confessions of a Mother Runner. I’ve learned so much the past 3 years and have made some great connections. Pinterest and Instagram are my current favorite social media and I’d love to connect with you more there.
Tell me-what’s your focus this year?
