Fitness Goals for 2014!

Fitness Goals for 2014!

Last year I made some fitness goals for myself. I thought now would be a great time to set some new goals since we’re still not even two weeks into the new year. But before I move forward, let’s take a peek at how last year went…

1. Run a marathon. 

Bam! Did that one! You can take a look at my recap here if you haven’t already!

2. Get a gym membership. 

Did it! Not only did I get a gym membership, I ended up getting a job at the gym I signed up for not even a month later as a group exercise instructor!

3. Run 13 races in 2013. 

SOOOO Close but didn’t quite get there…

  1. Houston Marathon
  2. Color in Motion 5K
  3. Rhythm & Blues half marathon
  4. Disney Princess half marathon
  5. Dallas Rock ‘n Roll half marathon
  6. Esprit de She 5K
  7. Run Wild 5K
  8. Lazy Hazy Crazy Days of Summer 5K
  9. Alaina Dixon 5 miler
  10. Zooma Cape Cod half marathon
  11. Houston half marathon
  12. FLS Sugar Land 30K

4. Go to 1 group exercise class per week. 

Well I didn’t get a gym membership until June. Starting in June I was teaching at least one group class a week and often attending them! I just started a little late 🙂

5. Attend 2 fitness workshops for my certification. 

Instead of attending 2 workshops, I attended a 3 day fitness conference and participated in multiple workshops a day. I would say that’s even better than my goal! Oh and I passed my PT certification. #winning



I may not have completely met my goals, but I got pretty darn close if you ask me. Close enough to be proud of myself for my accomplishments. In fact, I feel like I met even more goals last year by following my dreams! That being said, here are the goals I want to reach for in 2014…


My goals this year revolve around trying new things, running and improving my strength training. It’s no secret that I love running, but this year I want to expand my horizons beyond road races. I want to try new things! This year I want to try trail running in addition to my usual races!

I also want to learn to become a combat cardio kickboxing instructor! Watch out world, you’re going to have a little kick-boxer on your hands! In addition to kick boxing, I want to improve on my strength training routine. I find it easy to skip when I’m running a lot, but I notice a HUGE difference in how awesome I feel when I’m sticking to a plan.

Lastly, I need to decrease my refined sugar intake. Ice cream, cookies, candy…they all need to be eaten less. End of discussion. I know how bad it is for me. Sweets are my kryptonite. I love them. Now don’t get me wrong, I didn’t say eliminate…I said limit. There is a healthy balance and I believe in moderation.

So there you have it…my fitness goals for 2014! Have y’all set yours yet? If not, let me know if you need any help! I have lots of ideas up my sleeve.
