There are so many things I want to improve in my life. I sometimes wonder if that is because I am never satisfied or because I am someone who is looking to be my best person. I like to think that it is the latter. :-)
Some of the areas I want to improve in no particular order are:
- my career
- my organization
- my fitness/health level
- my finances
- my friendship circle
So focusing in on one is more challenging than I originally thought it would be. But since I have signed up for 6 OCRs (Obstacle Course Races) and a 15k in 2016. I need to get my health and fitness on the forefront of my priority list.
So there it is. I want to be healthier. Wow... that sounds so generic and bland. So i need to do some closer evaluations.
I want to be able to run a minimum of 30 minutes without stopping, be able to cross monkey bars, have my body weight and body fat in a normal range before my 45 birthday in 2016.
What is prompting me to seek this goal/outcome? This is not a new goal for me. I have been pursuing health and fitness for awhile. I have in the past come up short of reaching my goals. I want to be more consistent and deliberate in how you chose to treat my physical body.
Why do I care so much now about reaching this goal? I have eliminated other issues that were holding me back. I had the VSG so now I cant over eat. I had the MMO so now my baby bulge is gone. So now I just need to get focused and get fit.
What would happen if I didn't reach this goal? I would stay the same weight and have the same abilities physically that i have now. Over time, however, those would diminish and I could gain weight or lose muscle and/or cardio strength.
So that is more goal... but I wonder if I am covering it with enough detail. Only time will tell.
