Week 1 mission: Smaller goals
"To start the challenge off, we want to encourage everyone to break your larger challenge goals down into bite-sized goals each week."
- Success story. The other week I was talking to Anthony and told him that one of my NSV goals is to be featured on the "Wall of Success" at our gym. The catch is I don't wanna ask to be a feature, I wanna be asked... big difference. This goal can't really be broken down smaller. As long as I stick to my exercise/nutrition goals below, I'll hopefully hit this.
- Donation time! This weekend, I'm spending the time to try on ALL my clothes and sort them into piles of too big, too small, and just right. By the end of the RFSC, I want to fit into the "too small" pile and have to donate the other piles of clothes. Same for this goal. Being consistent with my goals below will let me hit this NSV.
- Keep on going. Continue my current 12-week exercise program, which will take me into the middle of May. Breaking down this goal by writing out exactly what I need to do each day.
- Sun: back, biceps, and hamstrings weight training + 5-mile hike
- Mon: high-intensity interval training (HIIT) on the stairmill
- Tues: plyo + full-body weight training
- Wed: shoulders and abs weight training
- Thur: back weight training + 20 min HIIT
- Fri: chest and abs weight training + 20 min run
- Sat: plyo + arms, back, and legs weight training
- Something new. Based on where I am at the end of my current program, research and choose my next routine. Can't break this one down.
- Clean, clean, clean! My #1 priority for the next 10 weeks is to really focus on and dial in my nutrition. Clean, whole foods to support my body and intense workouts. Meal planning for the week is done, just need to buy, prep, cook, and portion out my meals.
- Increase healthy fats. Definitely need to add more "smart fats" to my diet: salmon, avocado, nuts, olive oil, flaxseeds, coconut oil, etc. Stocked up on avocados, salmon, a new to me cooking oil (macadamia nut oil), almond butter, and coconut oil. My meal-planning has me eating healthy fats at every meal this week!
- New eats = happy tummy. Making it a goal to try one new recipe a week. Nutrition can get pretty boring if you eat the same things over and over, so finding 10 new (hopefully yummy) recipes to add to my rotation will do me good. Going to try this recipe as my "new eats" this week.
