I hope everyone had a happy and safe evening! I spent the night on the couch with water and throat lozenges…hah. Now that I’ve taken the time to look back at 2012 and all of the things I proudly accomplished, it’s time to set the stage for 2013. I set goals all the time, but the New Year is a particularly special time to set long term goals. It’s a chance to take a look at the big picture, and think about the smaller steps it will take to get there. So…let’s do it.
In 2013 I will:
Track all my running mileage! Treadmill, road, race, everything. Even the little 2km runs to and from the gym that I never give myself credit for. I wish I had done this from the first time I ever hit the pavement.
Master the unassisted pull-up. I can currently do 0..so I’m aiming for 10. I figure if I do these in every strength workout I should be on my way in no time. I also want install my own pull up bar at home– I already have one, we just never put it back in when we moved to this house.
Do a handstand pushup, off the wall. Just 1, because that is badass.
Plank more often. I don’t foresee any #plankaday action in my future, but I don’t see why I can’t work up to a 10 minute plank.
Run Around the Bay in 30k
Run a marathon (in sub 4:20 would be nice…)
PR in the half-marathon (sub 1:54:59)
Book and prepare for a fitness photo shoot (paid for by myself). I think this is a great goal for me and will be beneficial to my personal training business website, marketing, etc. It is also slightly (very) terrifying.
Build up my personal training business and boot camp franchises, until I am self-employed on a full time basis.
Read more books! At least 1 per month.
Obtain a nutrition certification (I am planning for the Precision Nutrition program in March, but am open to suggestions!)
Learn some basic web design so I can make my own life easier.
Blog 3x per week, minimum!
I think that is a pretty decent little list! Should keep me busy! I’m pretty scared by the looks of it, which means it’s just right
Tonight I am heading to Oakville for our annual family New Year’s Day dinner of Chinese food. On Wednesday, I will be planning out my food prep/grocery shopping/batch cooking in anticipation of the Thrive Forward start on Thursday! I may even bust out some before pictures if I’m feeling crazy..who knows.
Do you go out on NYE or keep it low key at home?I usually do SOMETHING fun, but this year I wasn’t feeling it and was sick anyway, womp.
Do you write down your goals for the year? This will actually be the first year I have made a legitimate list!
