Batfit 2014 - Goals

I'm very excited that our Curious Professor Z is starting of her Batfit campaign again for 2014. With the new year upon us, she's asked participants to set some goals for the coming year. She also set a theme of detoxifying, which I think is a pretty good one. It can apply to lots of things. Everything from getting rid of junk food, to unhealthy thoughts and habits. I can't wait to see what ideas she has in store for us!

My Goals

The picture above was taken 2 weeks ago, just before I got sick with a wicked cold that lasted through the Christmas week and I'm only just now recovering from. I have been far to susceptible to colds and flu this year as well as anxiety, so I think some extreme self care is in order this year. That said, I still like to keep my goals simple.

1. Get more sleep - 8 hours preferably. And I will not be afraid to take naps if needed!

2. Drink at least 6 glasses of water a day. I was better at this, but have fallen off the bandwagon, and am easily lured by the siren song of bubbly pop.

3. Daily exercise - more treadmill time is needed. Especially when it's been -40 C out. It makes it hard to get adequate walking time outside, so the treadmill is a good substitute.

4. More fruit and vegetables. I'm not even going to pretend I'm going to give up sweets, it's not in my nature. I do think that adding more healthy food and eating less cake, pop etc. is a more realistic balance.

5. Enjoy myself! I'll be turning 40 this year and I think it's something to celebrate. I have had others tell me they dread turning the big 4-0, but I say it sure beats the alternative. I'm young and healthy (minus the odd cold/flu etc) so I should enjoy myself by doing things I love and trying new things!

That's it. My five simple goals. I can't wait to read everyone else's posts. I wish you all a wonderful 2014!

  1. You are very pretty! Everyone I know has been having many more illnesses this year, regardless of their dietary/fitness lifestyle, so don't feel like an exception! You are turning 40? Congratulations! Any major celebration plans?

    1. Thanks for the nice compliment. Yes, it does seen there are a lot of flu and colds going around now.

  2. Happy New Year, sweet lady! AND Happy 40th year! Welcome to the club ... you're in good company. :) Good luck on your goals and may your New Year be healthy, productive, peaceful and calm!

  3. Wow you live at a place colder than mine! We usually have a week with temperatures below -30C but this winter has been weird and warm. You look unbelivable young, I would have guessed 25 :). Welcome to the fab 40!
