2018 Goals

Ahhh.  The struggle continues.  Frustrated to look back at my 2016 goal summary and see that in 2017, I basically gained back the weight I had lost in 2016.  Grrr.  So now I look at the blank slate that is 2018 and throw some goals on paper.
  1. Lose two pounds each month.
    OK.  Enough, right?  Two pounds a month would get me back to where I ended 2016 - and honestly, I have 66 pounds to get to a "normal" BMI.  Baby steps though.  Let's reverse this trend from 2017, please.
  2. Work out at least 20 days a month.
    I like this goal from last year.  Though it's fun to get in some 2-workout-days, I think it's more important to move my body more often, so let's track this again.
  3. Hit my 10,000 steps a day average over the month.
    Yes, please.  I know this is a good indicator of my overall daily movement so let's keep it going.  I 'finished' my 3.65million steps on November 18, 2017 - can I do it earlier this year? ;)
  4. Cook one new (and healthy!) recipe a month.
    I know this is a silly one, but I like that it keeps me accountable for trying new recipes. 
I'm still doing my daily gratitude journal, but I don't feel like I need to make that a goal here.  I am also hoping to increase my "hours with 250+ steps" average too - fitbit tracks this, and I can't figure out how to get this to a monthly average but they do it weekly for my chosen 9am-5pm timeframe.  I think my goal is 7+ hours for those 9 hours, so we'll see how it goes.  

Here's to a healthy 2018!
