2012 Goals

in Goals

It’s taken me a while to get around to writing this post and it may take me a while longer before I truly start working towards them (due to other things going on in my life and enjoying my winter hibernation) but here are a few of my 2012 goals.

Fitness/Health Goals

1)      Reach my initial goal weight of 160

This weight was decided on as a good initial weight loss goal by my doctor and I.  The idea is that once I reach that weight I can reevaluate and determine if I am happy or if I need to lose more.  This weight will put me at a healthy BMI.  I think I will be pretty happy if I can stay in the 150-160 range.  My most recent weigh-in was 216.6 though so I have a long way to go!

2)     Complete an Olympic distance triathlon

I’ve wanted to do this for a couple of years now and it has taken a back seat to other goals and life in general.

3)     Run a sub-30 minute 5k

This is going to be tough for me.  I am not fast at all but I want desperately to be faster.  I would consider this a near miracle and a large step in the right direction.

4)     Complete (at least) 1 unassisted pull up

This is one of the hardest exercises for women and my upper body is sadly weak right now.  A stronger upper body will help me achieve other goals.

5)     Improve on my half marathon time

This may not happen in 2012 exactly but there is chatter among friends of heading back to Disney in January 2013 to run the Walt Disney World “Donald Duck” Half Marathon.  If that comes to be, the work to better my time will need to be done in fall of 2012 so I figured I’d include it.

 

#1 Priority Goal

My fitness and health are important to me but there are times when they take a back seat to other areas of life.  The start of 2012 (particularly New Year’s Eve) was miserable for me and this year is going to be a struggle.  So when it comes down to it, I really only want one thing:

End 2012 Happier than I Started It.

For some of you, you might change that to “as happy” instead of “happier”.  If so, I envy you!

But let’s be honest, isn’t that all we can really ask out of a year?
