Back on Track: Pick a Healthy Goal for the Week

With Sunday evening comes the inevitable wind down from a busy weekend and plans for the upcoming week. To get back on track, it pays to take a moment and think about your health intentions for the week. Your goal shouldn't be over complicated or too general, something simple like: to eat a leafy green everyday, to get to bed before midnight, or to lift weights twice a week. These are all doable and specific.

Healthy Monday is an organization with a mission to help folks start each week with a healthy attitude. I am loving their motto – Healthy Mondays, the day all health breaks lose. If you need a little extra motivation to make your Mondays healthy, sign up for their newsletter.

My goal, to swim a mile. What's yours?

Not over eat, but eat until i am satisfied. I find I over eat on weekends when we tend to eat out more rather than cook at home.

I will walk my dog for at least one hour each evening - good for me and him! And I will do my strength training routine 3 times this week, I had wrist surgery last month and my upper arms are horrid and sausage-like! I love the concept of Healthy Monday!

I got up and out of bed and swam a little over a half mile and then had to get home to make breakfast for my girls. I will swim the second half of my mile later on this week.

Cool. My goal this week is to do some basic pilates and push-ups in the morning before I start the day.

My goal is to keep hitting the gym after work. Been feeling much better now that I'm doing cardio again.

Great idea! My goal this week is to do my cardio on all my planned days and to not pig out at my barbecue this weekend for the 4th. Also, I plan to do my Pilates 5 nights this week.

I've met some of the folks behind Healthy Monday and it's a great idea, they are very cool people with some wonderful projects. My goal will be to get in a workout tomorrow and keep up my healthy eating streak.

My goal is do my cardio workouts in the morning. I haven't really done a proper 45 minute workout in two months! Definitely time to get back on track.

I just moved this week so I haven't strength trained in an entire week. My goal is to get back on track and fit in strength training twice this week.
