Hi friends! The New Year begins in just a couple days, and as usual, I’m reflecting on the past year and making plans for 2016. I’m looking forward to the New Year! I have some fun things planned for this year (health and energy willing), and hopefully I can stay healthier this coming year then I have in the past.
Since 2015 is coming to a close, I wanted to share some of the top posts on The Fit Cookie for the past year and share some goals and planning for the new year! I finished my RunFit Specialist Certification this year and celebrated 3 years as a personal trainer, and 5 years as a group fitness instructor. I plan on expanding my expertise even more by getting YogaFit certified in May 2016. Yay! Yoga is a great compliment to other higher intensity exercises, my body loves having it be a regular part of my fitness routine.
Looking back, 2015 has been a good year for me, much better than 2014 as far as my health goes. This year had plenty of health challenges, but I had a bit more optimism and energy to get through them this year. My blogging and photography has improved, though there is always room for more! I have been blogging more consistently and have tried to be a bit more cohesive with my posting strategy. Posting 3 good quality posts a week is my goal, though some weeks I will post more or less depending on what else I have going on in life. I don’t want to post every day, especially if that means churning out poor quality posts. Less is better sometimes! I can focus on quality rather than quantity, and that matters to me.
I’m not a big “resolution” maker, but I love setting goals! My blogging goals for this year are:
- Continue to improve my photography
- Stay consistent with my blogging frequency (3x/week is the sweet spot for me) and quality
- Write an ebook of recipes and an ebook of workouts (hopefully within the next couple months!)
My health and fitness goals for 2016:
- Continue to make my health a priority
- Get YogaFit certified in May
- Challenge my fitness level this year but stay healthy (we have some races planned!)
