Goal? Goal...

Posted Jan 04 2012 6:00am
I am not a strong goal-oriented person...rather, I usually just let things evolve.  Like my weight loss:  I didn't start out with a particular number in mind that I wanted to lose (or weigh) - I just got going, and the next thing I knew (ha, if you count 18 months later the "next thing"), I was down 100 pounds.  Same thing with running - I just wanted to run, and then I wanted to run a mile.  And then all those races happened - but it's not like I woke up one day and thought "I want to run a half marathon" - it just progressed toward that.  The non-goal person that I am can frustrate other goal-driven people, especially Jeff.  He doesn't quite get how I can go through life NOT picking something and working toward it, but after so many years of marriage, he's used to my ways by now.

It's like the universe is telling me something...it's time to strengthen my core and maybe, just maybe, see if I can make my stomach smaller.  Because even when I was at my all-time lowest weight, my stomach size still bothered me.  Now, in full disclosure, I haven't read much of Wheat Belly (what?  you mean I can't just have the book in my posession, I actually have to READ it?!?), nor have I read the abs book (again with the reading!), but now that work is almost over, I'm going to give this a go.  I mean, what do I have to lose, right?

Oh, and Jeff is going to be doing this with me.  He doesn't know it yet, but I'm sure he'll be game.  I'll sell it as something to help with his running (which having a strong core does do, as a matter of fact).  So this is the plan...that I don't really have.  But it's a goal.  I think.  I'll update you in a few months as to if it actually happened.
