Setting a few goals for myself.

I've been thinking about my blog a LOT lately, but I haven't been actually writing in it. I'm a little bit disappointed in myself about my lack of blogging.

I have set a few goals for this year that I had decided that I was not going to post for fear of publicizing my failure, as I did last year. Anyways, I've come to the conclusion that, by not publicizing my new goals, I am absolutely setting myself up for failure.

So here are my new years resolutions, if you want to call them that, or personal life goals:

  • 1,000 miles this year.
  • Run another full marathon.
  • Run several times a week. Push myself.
  • Get myself to a pool. I miss swimming.. and it is great exercise.
  • Update my blog regularly.
  • Stay caught up in my classes.
  • Learn good ways to manage stress.
  • Go to the gym!

I'm really apprehensive about going to the gym to work out. I have a really great facility that I can use for free at my university. However, I'm so self conscious about my weight and my work outs, that I feel like I want to trim off a few more pounds before I step foot in a gym. That sounds a little crazy when I think about it, but I did set a goal to lose 8 more pounds before I go to the gym. Hopefully that helps me gain a little more confidence.

I'm going to write my recap from the full marathon this weekend. Look forward to that!

Oh also, for accountability reasons:
Goal: 1000 miles/365 days
So far: 59.69 miles/ 33 days
To go: 940.31 miles/332 days
