My Fitness Goals For 2022


It is safe to say my 2021 fitness goals didn't really go to plan as you will have read already but I am still blaming that on 2021 being a year where I was having to get back into a routine where nothing was neglected, it is a shame that didn't work though and I really fell off track with the fitness and weight loss journey. I won't be making the same mistake this year though as I am determined to get back on track and not let anything else derail my progress. I am setting myself some realistic goals for the year ahead and I am really hoping that I am going to be ticking a lot off at the end of the year as complete. Here are the goals I am aiming for in 2022... 

Drop 2 Clothing Sizes
This is probably the most ambitious goal for the year but it is one I am determined to absolutely smash. Currently I am an 18 in women's clothing and a large in men's. I would love to be down into a 14 in women's by the end of the year as I think it will give me loads more options when shopping especially if it is for jeans. It is definitely optimistic to become a small in men's clothing but honestly if I got myself even down to a medium in men's clothing by the end of the year I would certainly be happy. If I do get to these targets I think a fair bit of clothes shopping will need to take place over the year to make sure I always have the essentials that fit. 

Drop 2 Stone
This is something I am more than capable of if I put my mind to it. If I lost 2lb a week I would hit this in the early stages of the year and lose a whole lot more than the 2 stone target however, I want to be realistic, I know that the scales aren't going to go down weekly so I want to keep the target small to make sure I aren't overwhelmed with the goal in front of me. I am really hoping that I can smash this target but I guess only time will tell. 

Go Boxing At Every Possible Chance 
I started boxing in 2021 and I have absolutely loved every second of it. I am hoping to continue going every Wednesday in 2022 although I do know there are some dates I definitely can't do due to events happening on those days. However, I am hoping that unless I am ill I can go boxing to every free Wednesday I have throughout 2022 when it is on although who knows I might try add a few Saturday classes into the mix too if I get the chance but who knows. I am just enjoying this a lot and it has made Wednesday's one of my favourite days of the week. 

Play Football A Lot More 
I started playing 5 a side again in 2021 although due to numerous reasons I didn't get to half as many sessions as I wanted to. I am determined to change that in 2022 though and thanks to my new car being a lot more reliable I should be able to get myself to sessions without having to rely on others like I have had to previously. I am hoping that like boxing I can get to football every free Friday I have although again I know there are some events happening on Friday's that I am going to. I know from the sessions I went to in 2021 football burns a lot of calories so going more frequently is going to help me lose weight. 

Try A New Form Of Exercise
My new exercise for 2021 ended up being boxing and we all know how I fell in love with that. So in 2022 I am really hoping that I can try a new exercise again that I am going to fall in love with as much as boxing. I would love for that exercise to be for me and Liam to do together such as running but who knows 2022 might be the year I try yoga and fall in love with it. I want to make sure I am trying new things rather than getting bored of doing the same thing over and over again. Whatever exercise I end up trying I hope it is something I can stick with and mix into my weekly exercise routine. 

Cook More
This is a big one for me as I know my diet is really holding back my progress. If we get too lazy we end up just ordering in and that happens far too often for my liking. So in 2022 I want to make sure I am in the kitchen cooking up healthier meals a whole lot more. I rely on Liam too much when it comes to cooking so I want to make sure at least half of the week I am also doing my share of the cooking and hopefully that will  stop us getting so many takeaways throughout the year and hopefully it will save us a bit more money too. This year is definitely time to get the cook books out. 

Work Out More 
I slacked in 2021 with my workouts and to be honest other than boxing from summer onward I barely did any working out and it shows. I am determined to change this in 2022 and I want to be a whole lot more active. I want to be working out at least 4 times a week as I think this will benefit me and help me achieve my goals. Plus I have realised now just how much working out helps me mentally too so I know how much of a benefit it will provide in another area I need to see improvement. 

Try To Do A Few Alcohol Free Months
I went alcohol free for quite a few months a few years back and I noticed some big changes in my weight and my mentality. I love doing this little bit of a challenge each year and this time I am just going to try do this on months where I have a lot going on event wise, July I am looking at you for the Euros as I need all my focus to be there, and any other quieter months. I might even try document these months on here too so that we can see the benefits it has each month as it will definitely be interesting. 

Fingers crossed during my end of year fitness goals round up I will be ticking a lot off and writing about a positive year where I have made a lot of progress. I am going into 2022 with a much better mindset than I did in 2021 so lets hope this helps with the progress too. I can't wait to see the results start to come my way and feel much better about myself once again. I think to make this a bit more interesting I am going to give myself rewards when I achieve the goals on this list or when I reach specific weight loss target goals.
