Train to Inspire: December Recap & January Focus

The final month of goal chasing for 2013 is complete!

I’m currently in the middle of mapping out my vision, 10 year, 5 year, (maybe 3 year) and 1 year goals for health, career and personal life. It’s a much bigger picture than normal so it’s taking some time and a lot of thought! But it also highlights the smaller goals which need to be achieved to reach the long term ones.

So whilst I am putting together the bigger picture, I can share my focus for January which will also ultimately be me working towards my 2014 goals for health & fitness.

Lets just recap first on how December 2013 went:

These were my goals for December:

1. Attend yoga once per week (minimum)

I attended 7 yoga classes throughout the month (I had another two booked – the teacher didn’t turn up for one and the other got cancelled by the gym!).

reverse prayer – one pose I will master in 2014

2. Stretch 3 times per week (minimum)

On top attending those 7 yoga classes this month where I got a good stretch, I also attended 3 Tempo reformer pilates classes, a Bodyfit Burlesque class, Barre Class and Bunny Bootcamp which all involved stretching at the end of the class. With teaching a couple of classes this month too (where I usually stretch along with the class) I think I definitely hit this goal. In future though, I think I would like to dedicate at least 15 minutes per day to stretching which may best take place at home.

3. Share my fitness goals for 2014

The full 2014 goals post is coming soon; below I share my goals for January.

4. Finish reading ‘Hell Bent’

Well, I still have 5 more days left…I’m halfway. I’ll be making every effort to get this completed 🙂 I would like to red a lot more in 2014 so I have to finish this book before I start the next!

5. Record stats / progress for push ups / pull ups / sit & reach / splits

*15 full push ups with no rest + 10 seconds half way hold
*no stats for pull ups
*no update on sit & reach
*no update on splits

January 2014 Focus…

So, did you crush a PB in 2013?! …either way, lets not rest on our laurels! No matter how far you came in 2013, there is always room to push further, go harder and become the best version of you possible! 

What’s your plan for January 2104 and beyond?!

    Oh Elle you've inspired me to get my butt in gear. 2013 wasn't the best year for me, it felt like i had a lot of lows than highs. Things to to be re-looked at others need to be deleted or changed to make way for a much better and praying for an awesome 2014. I'm gonna get working on my plan for 2015 🙂
