When I don’t have a goal, I fall off the wagon

runner3.jpgIt has been quite some time since I posted last. There are any number of excuses I can use, but the truth is, I just starting losing track of what I’m doing and where I’m going – i.e.: I don’t have any goals. So here I go, because what’s more cliche than setting goals prior to the new year, any way?

(1) I want to get back to running a 6 min/km run consistently. When I finally did an 8km in less than 48 minutes, I was so happy. The reality is, I know I can do it, I just need to push myself a little harder.

(2) I want to get back into doing yoga 2-3x per week. As you may remember, yoga was the only way I started getting back on track the last time…

(3) I want to start cooking from scratch again. Yep. You read that right. The gal who HATES cooking is going to start doing things from scratch.

(4) And finally, when all is said and done, I hope these little changes will help me get back into my smaller jeans (yes. That’s vain. I don’t care.) I got really close when I was training for my half, but I never quite followed through.

I think theses goals are attainable. As Rick Hansen would say, “The goal you set must be challenging. At the same time, it should be realistic and attainable, not impossible to reach. It should be challenging enough to make you stretch, but not so far that you break.” 

So the plan is to start this stuff even before the new year, because the reality is that it doesn’t matter if it’s December 13 or January 1, and plus, I don’t want to be part of the bummer new years resolution stats.
