Feeling *Almost* As Good As New

Wednesday, August 22, 2012

Happy Wednesday! Today is a new day and I am feeling a lot better. I started getting some energy back last night. I did decide to take one more rest day, since it is now looking like I was just burnt out. I want to thank you guys so much for your support on my last blog! Your words of encouragement and understanding while I was feeling so weak!

Per some of your suggestions - I decided to ACTUALLY sit and think about what items I want on my fitness bucket list, since I have wanted to come up with a list for a while and have yet to do it. Here is what I came up with yesterday:

Strength:
-Be able to do 1 pull up
-Complete 100 push ups program
-Complete 200 situps program
-Complete 200 squats program
-Complete 150 dips program

Cardio:
-Complete half marathon
-Complete full marathon
-Try spinning class
-Run 12 races in a year

Flexibility:
-Be able to do the splits again (HAHAHA - a girl can dream, right??)
-Be able to do a back walk-over again
-Make yoga a regular part of my regimen

It's not a long list - but it's a start! I know I will come up with more as I start accomplishing some of these.

Does anybody else have a fitness bucket list? What are some of the things you want to accomplish??

    Such an awesome idea!!! I have a couple of the same things as you on mine - squats, push ups, fitness minutes and planks. I am trying to really focus on my core so that's why I threw the planks in there. You are doing so great!! emoticon

    That sounds pretty cool--a fitness bucket list.

    Hm...maybe I should come up with one of my own! Thanks for the idea!

    A pull up is on my bucket list too. I told my trainer that I'm not greedy, I just want 1! We can do it!

    I'm so glad you are feeling better and I'm so glad you listened to your body's need for rest. That is one heck of a fitness bucket list. I've not really given it much thought, I know that I want to be able to jog or run eventually, my knees will dictate when that happens and I'd love to do a half marathon. I've actually made a goal to do the Mother's Day Walk/Run here next year. But that's about it for me at this point. I like the idea of a fitness bucket list and I'm going to give it some thought and put one together. Oh look! There you go again, inspiring me!! You are the best!!

    Heck, that seems pretty darn ambitious to me!
    And you can do every single bit of it as long as you keep pushing!

    This is a great lifetime achievement bucket list! Hell it took me two months of hard work to get off my knees to do REAL push ups! One of my bucket list accomplishments is to dead hang for 30 seconds! I hope to see this achieved on my next PFT. One pull up goal will follow because I can't do ONE to save my life!! HA
    My motto for you today: "EYE ON THE PRIZE!" :)

    I have no bucket list for fitness but I do know that we can make dreams come true. Persistence, determination, and care are basic ingredients.
    Go catch your dream!!!!!!!
