Happy New Year! Last year’s fitness thread seemed to go reasonably well—it certainly helped me, anyway. So it’s time for Fitness Goals part deux! For my personal fitness goals this year, I decided to have a few: 1st: Add 10% to my previous goal. I decided to change it into Km as well because…well, metric makes more sense. So rounding up, that makes it 55 km per month or 660 km for the year. This is more of a maintenance goal than anything designed to keep me from returning to my sluggish ways. I hope to do much better than this. 2nd: Eat an average of at least one meal prepared from base ingredients per day per month. This is similar to my mileage goal from last year. My intent is to try and shift my diet over the next year to the point where I routinely eat more healthily as a way of life and that begins with preparing meals rather than having meals prepared for me. Of course, this won’t always be practical, which is why I’ve made it an average. 3rd: Learn at least 12 new patterns (one per month) and use them in a social dance setting. This is just because dancing is great fun and happens to be good exercise as well. That’s it. Share your goals and your progress!
