Welcome to the new decade! I am posting my goals today for the year so I can find them easier come the end of the year LOL! I like to call them goals instead of resolutions because the word resolution brings up “resolute” in my mind- which seems like trudging with head down and not enjoying. Goals are positive, achievable, moveable, and changeable!
I loved how 2009 ended up being a big fitness achievement year for me:
(Rocking the Triscuit – best.purchase.ever.)
The same Duathlon for sure! A few 5K. The number of races will be a little dependent on finances, as they get expensive to keep doing, but for sure Silk & Satin and Goblin Gallop.
I would love to do a day where I ride 100 miles on my bike this summer. I will achieve this with incremental increases in mileage each week.
Possibly a 1/2 marathon. This is also something I can’t quite commit myself to as it might interfere with the 100-mile bike and the duathlon as far as training goes. Biking is always my first love 😀 I have the 1/2 picked out to do if I so choose to do it in the fall. I am going to increase my base running distances this year (I still can’t believe I am writing that!) and do speed work so I will be ready if the opportunity presents itself.
Okay, I am going to be ambiguous here. First and foremost I am going to maintain at a minimum. I am still struggling with whether I am at goal now or if I do that little extra required to get to a specific number. I am pretty happy with how I look now, but I know deep inside that I could do a little more. I think most of you know what I mean. It’s just a matter of a little more dedication and commitment to it. Controlling snacking is a big thing for me. This probably needs its own post. 😉
1. Continue to eat more locally, particularly the meat. This is for eco reasons and to support our local economy.
2. I am taking a few days each week where I don’t record my food. I actually did this in December some. This is not intuitive eating, as I pretty much have a running tally in my head, but it is a challenge to myself to stay on track without being dependent on the computer 😀
Sell my rental house. The big one! This was never intended to be a rental and I want to sell it so that I can move on with other plans. This will go with plans to increase income this year so that I can do other things.
I would like to do some volunteer work, but I have not picked out a specific yet.
Organize my blog a bit, like having a specific day each week with a new recipe and another day talking about a specific strength training move.
More family time!
I will be doing dog training with my sister in February. I would also like to get going on a monthly game night where we all get together and play board games. Scheduling is hard with that
Doing something with my hair! I started growing it out last February when it was really short and now it is in the awkward teenage stage. I have not been to the salon in almost a year. Need to decide what I want to do with it.
And, as always, to be radiant 😎
So there is a nice mix of specific and non specific goals. Seems like a lot, but not really. I’ll probably add to and modify as life dictates.
