My Fitness Goals for 2018

At the end of last year, I really began to get a passion for fitness again. I saw the benefits it had on my mind and body and I was actively going to the gym through enjoyment, rather than it being a chore.

This year I want to focus on doing exercise for self-care. I want to use it as a form of relaxation and a way to escape when I am stressed or feeling too busy. With that in mind these are the goals I have set myself for the year.

Outdoor Running:
I am rubbish at running. It is the one form of cardio exercise that I am not good at. However, everybody I know that runs outdoors, absolutely loves it and says it’s a great way of focusing your mind.
I’ve never been able to run on a treadmill let alone outdoors but this year I am determined to give it a go. I have set a goal of being able to run 5k outdoors by the end of the year which I think is a sensible, achievable goal.
I’m going to have to buy some outdoor sports wear as even though I have things to wear inside a gym, I don’t have anything long sleeved or any jackets that would be suitable for running outdoors. I’ve been looking for fashionable ladies sportswear and I’ve found plenty of choice.

Yoga and Pilates:
I’m aiming to do a Yoga or Pilates class at least once a week. It’s a great way of relaxation and clearing your mind. I didn’t do them enough last year but this year I want to make sure I am doing it weekly. I particularly enjoy ‘Hot Yoga’ so I’ll be looking to do that class.

I’d also like to swim at least once a week. It’s a great way of loosening up any sore muscles which I sometimes get after intensive exercise.

I am terrible for jumping in the car for short journey’s and this year I have to change that. It’s so lazy. I always just get in my car to pop to our local shop but I need to get out of that habit.
I am hoping to walk more with my family. I think at least once a week we should be going on a nice long walk with the dog through the mountains seeing as we are surrounded by them. It will do us all some good.

What are your fitness goals for this year?
