T Minus 88, aka Where Do YOU Wanna Be in 12.5 Weeks?
Thursday, October 04, 2012
That's right, folks, we are down to the wire. October marks the beginning of the 4th quarter of the year. Can you believe it?! Robin asked me in yesterday’s blog where I want to be in 89 days. Huh. Even though I’m a goal setter and metric taker, I haven’t given it much thought. My purpose for counting down the days is simply to make sure I’m doing SOMETHING healthy each day to move me along the continuum.
But I should keep my eye on the prize and all that. The fact that I really haven’t could be what’s been holding me back from being truly sensational. I know I have it. We all have it. It’s just teasing that greatness out of hiding that can be the greatest challenge.
So, Robin, that was a powerful question. Thanks for asking it. When I’m looking out on the horizon, the weight goal is the obvious one. I regrettably have not made any progress on that front this year. Yay for me for maintaining 30, but it’s time to make something happen in 2012. Yikes, ¾ of the year is gone and I’ve only treaded water! If I pull it together, I could potentially lose…25 pounds. Wow, are you kidding? I still have a chance to reach ONEderland by the end of the year. Woohoo, let’s go for it!!
Another thing I wish to accomplish is to complete the 12 week strength training program I keep restarting. I start Week 4 this week. Actually, I better start today before CarbJunkie asks me why not today. I love you guys holding me accountable! We don’t need formal pacts to make it happen, we just do it. Thank you.
A workout streak…ooh, 88 days is a big commitment. Can I really do it? I think I can commit to 30 minutes every day until the end of the year. It’s for a good cause, right? My unwritten plan will be to exceed 30 and make sure I’m elevating the heart rate. Oh, that’s so good and motivating to think through this!
Lastly, this is for my daughter who’s gotta do pushups for her final PT test. I’m going to train to do 100 pushups. I was impressed to find out that I can do real pushups this year. I was doing wall pushups and girlie pushups just last year. Time to see what I’ve really got!
How about you? Where do YOU want to be at the end of the year?
