I have some pretty big plans for next year.
I want to lose another 10-20lbs. I know this will mean even more extra skin around my tummy, but that's ok, there is still fat there and I still have room to get healthier.
I want to run a half marathon, my knee isn't quite in running form yet, but it is getting there. I will run one this year.
I want to do the Hustle up the Hancock, but that is quite a daunting physical feat, and will be pretty tough on the knee.
I want to learn how to lift weights. I am actually getting a jump start on this this weekend. My inability to hold a modified plank in PT because of my arms is pretty pathetic. So to the weights I go, and I have enlisted the help of my super buff boy friend.
I want to be able to do 100 pushups. I found a training plan for this and will probably start in March once I have gotten myself in a little better shape.
I also want to do the splits. I found a set of stretches to get me to this point on Fit Sugar.
Now, the non- weight related stuff:
Start a knitting blog.
Read a book a month.
Have a monthly girls night.
Get more comfortable being me.
2010 is NOT going to be about regrets, dissappointments or should have done's. It will not be about what could have been or how things aren't how I planned. It will not be about wishing for a life that I don't have. It will not be about finding an easy way out.
I am going to be moving in a positive direction for the second year in a row. The easy part is over, I lost the majority of the weight. The hard part is left. Keeping up the diet and fitness. Maintaining my weight when I reach my goal. Turning myself into an actual athlete (even if I am not a very good one)
