Totally Impossible/Crazy/Wei
rd/Freaky FUTURE :))

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

Sooooooooo, my RHH Challenge chicks (aka the sexy posse :p haha) got a HIIT mini-challenge from me this week (because HIIT is awesome!!!), but also, at the end, I asked them this:
I want you to think about something (fitness related) that seems TOTALLY impossible/crazy/weird/freaky and tell us about it. Something you would NEVER attempt or something you would LOVE to do one day if possible. Think big here, ladies!

So, if I'm going to ask them to do it, I must also do it myself ;)

I have done some amazing things so far in my journey. Things I thought I'd never do (like a 5k, etc..) but there are still some things I hear about or see and go "Man! I can't wait until I can do that!" and those pics and thoughts are what sometimes pushes me to keep going or push harder!

I mean... how freakin' awesome would it be to be able to do THIS....

Yeah. I know! Epic. I WILL be able to do that one day. Not as gracefully beautiful as she is doing it, maybe... and not SOON, but.. I will get there!

Other things that inspire me...


I have goals AND dreams.. and neither have a "deadline" because.. well... I'm never going to STOP doing them. I DO have stops and miniature goals that I want to reach and I push to get to them, but... when I don't reach them, you know what I do? Keep pushing!

Love her determined face and form. And her pants!!! hehe

I'm willing to work for the "impossible".

Again, look at that form. Holy crap, she's EPIC!

So yeah... my point of this was. NOTHING is impossible!

We should always have goals and things to strive toward because we are capable of anything! There aren't going to be shortcuts to it, because the journey is SO danged sweet!!

I am going to be able to fly... my own way!

Babysteps, loves. You will get there!

Because of how stubborn I am for not giving up.. and how much dedication I put toward myself and this journey... I proclaim that I am...

I know LOTS of moms that this fits! *flex* Dang, we are GOOD!

Don't be afraid to sweat. Find something that drives and encourages you to your goals. Have FUN doing it. Love YOU enough to never give up. Even if you would much rather lay on the couch and do nothing... getting up to do "just a few minutes" could lead to this...

And MAN does it feel GOOD!!!!!

What's your impossible/crazy/weird/freaky future fitness/health goal? XOXO

P.S. Please feel free to check me out on Facebook for DAILY inspirational things, chats, info, and.. weirdness.. Cause... that's how I roll :p LOL!

    I'm going to be a realistic pooper here, but please don't take it as being mean.

You can accomplish anything you want, within your body's capabilities. I think it would be cool to be the LA Dodgers starting pitcher on opening day, 2014. However, my body and my doctors tell me there is nothing I can do that would prepare for that.

I've had a couple of heart attacks with 2 by-pass surgeries - the first surgery had 4 bypasses and on the second, I rolled a five.

Last year, I tore my rotator cuff in my pitching arm. I'm up to about 60 MPH on my fastball - and I can still through a slow curve. I can't throw a hard slider, so I learned how to throw the knuckle ball plus a knuckle curve.

Unfortunately, my reflexes have gotten slower, so I would be a detriment to the team batting order. A fastball thrown by the imposing pitcher would be in the catcher's glove before I had completed a third of my swing.

There are other things I will be able to accomplish, realistic SMART goals. Good Goal Setting involves establishing specific, measurable, ACHIEVABLE, realistic and time-targeted (S.M.A.R.T ) goals.

It looks like I need to adjust my goal so that it is Achievable. My new goal is to have tickets to the Opening Day at Dodger Stadium in 2014, and watch the Dodger Pitchers as they and the catcher script the game.

Specific - Buy the tickets on line as soon as tickets go on sale for 2014.
Measurable - With the tickets in my hand, my DW and I get into the car and drive to Dodger Stadium; enter the stadium; find our seats and wait for the Umpire to call, "Play Ball !"

Measurable - See "Specific", above.

Realistic - Yes, much more than my initial ..... dream.

Time-targeted - Absolutely, as soon as the league offices publish the schedule.

Dear YL, you already know that just keeping your goals SMART you will be able to accomplish AMAZING things!

    Fantastic blog. I just tried jogging. It has been my one thing i would never push myself to try. I have gone now 3 times, I still am not good at it, I am very slow but i have conquoured it. Now I want to push myself to get better at it.

    I have spent quite a bit of time pondering your question and trying to come up with an answer. I cannot say that I am dremaing doing something so amazing it seems crazy to think about. Instead, I am dreaming of being able to do things like enjoy a whole day at Disney World without being too worn out to have fun, going to Hawaii for my 50th birthday (10 years from now) and being able to wear a swimsuit without being self conscious, or hiking trails all day if I want to. I want to be able to enjoy vacations someday, so I want to focus my attention on getting our finances in order enough to be able to go on one and on getting my body in condition to have the energy to do fun stuff, not just ride trolleys to see the sights. I want to be able to go deep and see what most people won't take the effort to see.

Thanks for asking the question and making me think about why my journey is important to me!
