I love New Year’s! For me, it’s a fun time with lots of hope and dreams but not a lot of heavy expectations. I’m thinking about bigger-picture year-long goals, but for this challenge, I want to keep it pretty simple. I'm starting during zero week, so these are all 6-week goals. Focused flexibility: This is a stretching program from a company called GMB. They recommend 2-week cycles after which you re-evaluate your flexibility and switch things up as needed. I’m going to do 2 cycles (total of 4 weeks) with the goal to stretch every day. If I miss a day, I can make it up with “bonus points” (described below). Drink water. I’m annoyed that I have to make this a goal, but I think I have to make it a goal. At least a liter every day. Selzer or herbal tea also count. If I miss a day, I can also make this up with “bonus points” Run 150 miles [6 weeks]. Treadmill counts. In a pinch, other cardio machines count (10 min = 1 mile), but only to get me up to 25 miles in a given week. Clean the bathrooms. Yup another exciting deep cleaning goal. I’ve done these in previous challenges and been really happy with the results. This time I’m not going to list all the details of cleaning jobs, but I’ll just note that it does include Mari-Kondo-ing all the cabinets. Bonus point activities: Practice pincha mayurasana (peacock feather pose) Strength workout (can be mini-workout…at least 5 sets counts) Go to spinning class (bike, not textiles) Go to big city yoga class And I still have quite a substantial sushi list to work on....
