Being SMART in 2014
Saturday, January 18, 2014
After taking a much needed mental and physical break in 2013, I am ready to be SMART in 2014.
Goals for 2014:
~ lose at least #15 and find my body's "happy place" in regards to weight
~ be more consistent with training and eating (Gotta remember the motto "athletes eat and train not diet and exercise"). This will mean following the weekly schedule laid out by my coach in regards to training. With eating, this will mean tracking at least 4 days a week
~ find a balance between training and life. While training for my iron distance triathlon in 2012, I let a lot of things go. I know some of that was necessary to make sure that I was properly prepared for the difficult challenge I was going to be facing. However, I feel like I really let my home life and personal life take a "hit." It was everything I could do to keep up with laundry. I just let things pile up. I never took time to organize, clean up, etc. I also basically ate, slept and trained. If you weren't willing to workout with me, you didn't exist. I have a lot of friends that don't belong to the same running or triathlon groups that I do. It was not fair to them. Luckily they were all good enough friends that they were still there for me after I had accomplished my goals. I also lost precious time with my family. In 2014, we have decided that we will get together every 2 months and go out to dinner and catch up.
I am looking forward to 2014...bring it on!
