So yeah, it’s officially the New Year now. Has been for a while. Sorry I’ve been vacant from the blog (for the three of you who actually read this 😉 ). I haven’t had a whole lot to write about, so I’ve been laying pretty low. Don’t want to bore you excessively!
I haven’t really done anything at all so far this year, other than the usual boring crap that everyone does. I’ve been sick/getting over being sick since New Year’s Eve, so that’s pretty much kept me from running/yoga-ing/biking. I did manage to get the bikes in to get them serviced, so they are all ready to go when we are.
Since it is the new year, I guess it’s time to talk about goals or what not.
Every year I make some of the same goals for myself and pretty much every year I completely fail at them. It boils down to a complete and utter lack of willpower. I have none. So that is probably my biggest goal of the year. *Build some damn willpower.
I’m not talking about saying no to cake or candy (although I do love me some good candies. Cake I can take it or leave it.). I’m talking about actually following through with training plans, debt pay-off plans, take better care of myself plans. I do have some fairly big other goals for the year I have in mind, and in order to achieve them, I have to get myself some willpower. It typically only takes me a week to fall off course on something. And it doesn’t matter if I tell the world or keep it a secret. I simply have trouble following through with just about everything.
Some of my other goals for the year are to bike 2000 miles in 2015 (better get started!), improve my 5k and half marathon times, race a new distance (I’ve never ran a 10k, which is weird to me), be consistent with yoga, complete a sprint triathlon, try new things, and just in general be more healthy. I’m also going to work on my blogging skills (because let’s face it, I’m not very good at it) and improve my photography and art skills. So all typed out, it seems like a lot of stuff. Could I potentially be setting myself up for failure? Possibly. But I guess I won’t know until I try. And isn’t that part of what living is about?
