Hey there girls. So I have been at this for just over 20 weeks. And honestly, I cannot believe it.
This week was goal week for most of the girls in the gym. And believe me when I tell you that goal week is scary. I have spent some time thinking on my goals, but until I put them out there, they are just in my head.
So here they are, at least a few of them:
Continue working out with Laura until the end of August. This goal seems the easiest, because I have no desire to stop working out. I enjoy it. It has become part of me. And I am only planning until the end of August because by then, we should be sharing our own gym and I will be teaching Zumba.
My next goal is to get into size 12 jeans. I know that we talked about our goals not being all about weight. But, being a size 12 was my original 6 month goal, so I am sticking to it!
I want to compete in a triathalon. For those of you who are not familiar with those, it is a 1/4 mile swim, a 15 mile bike ride, and a 3 mile run. My goal to complete this is by the end of October. I know I can do it, but I need the proper equipment. The biggest thing is currently I am in search of a bike. But also, I have not really swam in the pool since last summer, so I need to get some practice in!
So those are my big goals. It has been such a struggle for me because I am constantly battling a voice in my head telling me that I am not good enough to beat those goals.
I have spent some time running recently and every time I look down at my legs I have to convince myself that the legs I am seeing are actually mine. I have never been a runner. I was not a runner ever. I was not in any sports in high school, and in the past I have never done any thing sporty. And now, I am running! And I love it!
One of the goals that I had early on was to run a 5k. Well I must say that I did that yesterday. I ran the race for the cure in Madison yesterday. And I did it under 50 minutes! I ran for my best friend Clara and for my mom Susan. It was hard, it was hot out, but it was amazing!
I never would have ever though of even trying this in the past, but I did it!
So I ask, what are your goals?
