lean ’14: january jumpstart.

First of all, I am SO excited that so many of you are joining me in LEAN14! It’s great to know that I have so many lovely ladies (and maybe some fellas? ;) ) that are on the same journey as I am. I can’t wait to see what you all share and what your personal goals are.

When I introduced the challenge, I mentioned doing a more specific challenge for the month of January. So now I’m going to introduce the JANUARY JUMPSTART I’ll be doing from January 1-31.

You’ll see I’m not aiming for anything crazy restrictive or out of the norm. My goal in doing these 10 things for 31 days straight is to make a HABIT of them.


1. Drink at least 64 ounces of water each day

2. Eat at least 5 servings of vegetables each day

3. Exercise 3 days a week (30-60 min combo of strength & cardio)

4. Squats, squats, and more squats

5. Eat more clean, whole foods

6. Eat balanced meals and less snacking

7. Get 7-8 hours of sleep each night

8. Limit soda/energy drinks to 3 per week (an improvement for me)

9. Allow more time to walk/take the subway instead of cabs

10. Track more of my meals/workouts here on GML


That’s not so difficult, right? I know this may not be as strict or even effective as many of the January challenges out there, but for me this is all about consistency, and I do much better with small, attainable goals.

I’ll be keeping track of my progress here on GML, Instagram, and posting inspiration/motivation on the LEAN in 2014 Pinterest board.
