The 2014 Directive: January

Kate & Trudy The 2014 Directive

When Jessica from the blog Kate and Trudy said that she was going to kick off the year by creating a movement towards achieving greatness in 2014. I loved it, and decided I wanted to jump on the bandwagon! You can read more about The 2014 Directive plan here.

My very first directive of the year is to jump start my healthy habits. I want to lose 10 pounds this month. However, I don't want to start out with a number of pounds to lose. I want to start with kicking up my healthy habits.

I just got a Fit Bit One, and I am so excited about it. So I thought that since I have a great way of measuring what I am doing, I'm going to start out with a simple plan.

My January directive is going to be simple. 
I want to hit my Fit Bit goals in these areas every day for the entire month:
- Take 10,000 steps
- Walk 5 miles
- Drink 64 ounces of water

I think these are small, easily measured goals each day, and it will be a great habit to kick off my year. Here's to staying accountable and making progress to start off my year!

  1. I got a Jawbone Up 2, and my daily goals are very similar to yours! Here's to a great start to the New Year!

  2. This is so great! You'll be well on your way to success by focusing on the manageable pieces of daily activity vs. the larger goal of 10 lbs. I'm so excited to see where this month takes you in your wellness goals! :) xo

  3. Good luck with your goals this month! Keep your mind focused, and you'll do great! :)

  6. Fabulous directive!! It is great that it is broken down to easily manageable bits. I know that one of my monthly directives is going to be health related. Looking forward to seeing your update!
