Achieving goals

Monday, March 04, 2013

I'm slowly achieving some of my goals, although have not yet achieved any of the weight loss goals I set myself. That's ok though, I'm almost halfway to my first short-term weight loss goal of 67kg and only 0.9kg to another "bite-size" goal of breaking through the 70kg barrier.

I'm doing well with my exercise goals having quickly broken through two of my 5km time goals and having met my goal of doing a 15km run before the middle of March (this goal was my "long-run" that I needed to achieve as part of my training for the half-marathon on 16 March; instead of doing a 15km road run I did a 12.5km trail run which I consider to be a good alternative). I'm doing quite a bit of strength training and that, combined with the muscle-memory from my previous running training has helped with my speed goals on the 5km runs. I certainly won't be achieving a good time in my 16 March half marathon but I'll be able to finish, and it will clock up about 3hours of exercise time to log. I'll aim for better times later in the year.

I'm on week 3 of our Herbalife challenge which is giving me great motivation. The weight loss according to those measurements has not been great but it's a midday weigh-in as opposed to my first-thing-in-the-morning weigh-in that I use to track in SP so I'm not hugely concerned. What I'm concerned about it the final result in 12 weeks.
