Goals for This “30 Something” Gal  

30 something

I felt inspired by the comments I received on my post the day after I turned the big 3-0 to share my ten goals for the next year, as I find my bearings as the latest member of the 30 something club.

One thing I realized as I aged was that there is a definite connection between living a healthy lifestyle and making changes to both your eating habits and exercise habits.
This connection is so important for ensuring a healthy mind and soul. For me, I feel so much more positive and in control of my feelings and eating when I take the time to workout and challenger myself physically.

1. Complete my fitness certification by end of summer (almost there!!).

2. Run my first 1/2 marathon.

3. Teach/organize my first circuit training/boot camp class program. This is part of a longer term goal that teaching and running these programs would become a part of my weekly routine.

4. Eliminate all packaged and processed food from my family’s diet.

5. Live the “Fridgeonomics” lifestyle. Buy only what we need, waste not want not.

6. Read more. Be an active participant in the two virtual book clubs I have joined.

7. Become a member of the #5amclub. This means in bed by 10pm! (Not 12am).

8. Continue to spend quality time with my little family, by learning to relax more and slow our pace down.

9. Be happy. Be positive. And enjoy the moment more (wait … maybe this could be actually  3 separate goals).

And most importantly,

10. Finally, own it. By loving this new chapter and embracing all the changes it presents, both physically and mentally. Show by example has been my motto since my daughter was born and now it becomes even more important as her awareness of the world around her grows. I want her to be enjoy each milestone in her life.


I know I have mixed very tangible goals with sort of intangible ones. But that’s okay! Like life, having diversified goals is what keeps us on our toes, tests us and challenges us to continue to push and seek out what makes YOU happy.

What goals have you set for this year?

    Good luck with the half marathon! That was my 1- year post baby goal and it was awesome to finish and I can honestly say I won’t be doing that again HA!

    My goals – relax, spend as much time as possible with my ever growing toddler and don’t sweat the small stuff ! oh, and try new wines… lots of them.

    Cheers!

    Good for you! I turned 31 this year and have been really feeling it. In my 20s, I was more carefree – had a lot fewer responsibilities and more flexibility. But I wouldn’t swap it with my life now for anything! I don’t have any concrete goals right now, especially because I’m trying to cut way way down on expectations as Baby #2 is set to arrive soon, but I love reading about your ambitions. Good luck!
