Well, a new year is upon us, and it’s time to look at what we want to accomplish in the coming year…
That’s right, the dreaded NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS!
I’m keeping mine pretty simple this year, though that doesn’t mean that they won’t be challenging:
#1 – Lose 30 Pounds
Yes, I spend a lot of time between work and taking care of my boys, but in the past few years I definitely haven’t taken care of myself the way I need to. It’s time to change my routines and diet, and take care of myself for the long term. It’s going to be a lot of hard work, but it’s a change I need to make.
I weighed myself this morning, and I checked in at 267.6 after the holidays, so I’m shooting for 237 by the end of 2012. I’ll be posting updates throughout the year, both to share what has and hasn’t been working, and to help hold myself accountable to my goals.
#2 – Run Four 5k Races
In 2010, I started running over the summer and managed to complete two 5k races by the end of the year. Then in 2011, I didn’t stick with that effort, instead dedicating my time to our boys. In 2012, I want to get back to that level of training and getting that sense of accomplishment from finishing the races.
That’s going to be it for this year. There will still be plenty of my time focusing on my boys and spending quality time with my wife, but this year I need to make sure I take care of myself as well.
