Starting 2013 Clean & Healthy

I came across the Start Clean 2013 Challenge organized by Katie Heddleston a couple weeks ago and couldn't wait to give it a try. So here I am, on the second day of 2013...where did 2012 go?! ...and I'm ready to not only start this year on a healthy foot but to continue improving my health & fitness throughout the entire year.

The past 6-8 months of been trying to be healthier and always seems to let myself slip up then slack for a week or two before giving it another go. The start clean 2013 challenge gives me a small yet beneficial challenge for every day in January. After reading through the schedule I thought to myself "If I can't stick to this I'm hopeless" and let's just make it known that never in my life do I intend to be hopeless.

Yesterday was goal setting day & I set goals that I knew were attainable and small for this month so I can build up to my larger overall goals as the year progresses. Today my challenge is to eat a salad for one of my meals. Can't wait for dinner! I'm going to make a delicious grilled chicken salad :)

My Goals for January:
1. Stay Healthy!
2. Better portion control
3. Try one new recipe every week
4. Hold myself accountable
5. Minimum of 3 workouts per week
6. Weigh myself weekly
7. Track my progress
8. Drink 64oz or more of water everyday
