So I thought about my goals for 2018. Instead of doing the traditional 18 for 2018 or whatever. I decided to pick three simple goals.
For the past few years I have struggled to stay healthy physically. Partly because I put some weight back on (very hard to admit) and partly because I was worrying about others before me not taking care of me. My goal is this. Drop the weight I put back on. Get stronger via strength training so that my body can handle the rigors of running, training or anything else life throws at you. Having major glute/hip issues for over a year has taken a toll. By doing all of these things, I should be back stronger. My other goal is to get back to eating healthy. Everyone tells you its easy to lose it but its hard to maintain. This was my problem from the beginning and has taken me two years to finally realize it.
Last year I actually read two books, and almost finished a third. Which for some is a drop in the bucket. but for me, this is huge. I hated reading as a kid and I hated it more after grad school. But I enjoy it. It keeps my brain more active. I know this is a boring goal but it is something that I think will help me be a better person.
I have noticed since I have put weight back on, I haven't tried as much to do new things. I need to adventure more with my family. Do things we haven't tried before. I don't want to miss out on adventures nor do I want my kids to.
Enjoy the Now
My biggest goal for 2018 is to take a deep breathe and enjoy the present. Quit worrying about the past. Quit worrying about the future. But enjoy what we have in front of us.
