Six months down. Six to go.
It’s July 1st. That means six months of this year have come and gone. That leaves 6 more months to accomplish what you set out to do this year. I re-visted my list of goals from January.
1. Compete in another competition. – Done.
2. Hold a 5 minute plank. - Over halfway there.
3. Do 10 consecutive pull-ups. – HA HA HA HA!!!!!!! (Rolls on the floor holding stomach and wiping tears.)
So I’ve accomplished one of the three. Actually I prefer to say one and a half out of three. It sounds better. I’ve been so obessessed preparing for the competition that I forgot about the other two. I don’t know how? I mean there is nothing more fun than having your body burn and shake like jackhammer while you’re holding a plank cursing the ground. I’m re-evulating my pull-up goal. I think I may have over-estimated my strength and abilities. And discipline. Just a wee bit. Like most women, I’m weaker up top. I’m really having a hard time getting past 2 pull ups and some days I’m doing good to get one. At this rate, I don’t think it’s likely that I’ll get 10 by December 31. Just so I don’t have one more thing to beat myself up over, I’m changing my goal to 5 pullups by the end of the year. Heck, I’ll be happy with 4 but I ultimately I think it’s better to overestimate than underestimate yourself. Within reason, of course. I’m still shooting for a 5 minute plank because core strength is…well…one of my strengths.
What about you?? Did you set some goals at the beginning of the year? Where are you in relation to those goals?
We still have 6 months. SIX MONTHS FRIENDS!!! That is enough time to make MAJOR changes. Just look at the pictures shamelessly spewed across the top of my homepage. Finish these 6 months off strong so you can have the satisfaction of setting new goals in January and not the same old boring ones like I did for 10 years.
On a totally unrelated note I want to apologize for my grammatical errors. They are maddening I know. Sometimes I get on a roll with an idea or ridiculously excited about an awesome squirrel picture and I just click “publish” forgetting to proofread for errors.
