Declare a goal you will accomplish, set a deadline, and go out there and smash it!
One of my goals is to PR in the half marathon. My A goal would be to have a great race and finish under 1:50, B goal is a pretty fabulous race and finish under 1:55, and C goal would be anything under 1:57:04. I have 2 chances for it already on the schedule for this spring, but the first is just two weeks after circular logic, so it will totally be a "race by feel" day. That could mean magic, or that could mean just a 13.1 mile long party with my fellow Team Tough Chik members in Carmel.
The other goal is a bit bigger... Something I've wanted to do for years.
I want to walk on my hands.
I've tried a few times to figure it out, but never really committed to it fully. This year, it is on. All of January, I've been lifting a little heavier than normal, and just might venture into the weight room now since I've mastered the largest body bar (30 lbs). I did 725 push-ups last month and will keep increasing that number each month. I've been working on core strength, stretching, and have been practicing crow pose, and am working towards a basic hand stand.
Today, DID, I started day one of my hand-walking plan:
That, my friends, is the view as I "marched" on my hands. Just lifting them one by one, left, right, left, right, with my feet on the wall to help.
I will walk on my hands. :D
Do you have any big goals this year?
How are those resolutions coming along? Good news- if you're keeping up, you've made it far enough that they are almost habit!
I'm still eating more protein at breakfast, and I can tell that it has become a habit now. I don't even think about skipping it. Today I had turkey bacon and spinach artichoke dip- odd, but delicious! And combined with my glass of milk, 16 g of protein.
Enjoy your weekend!
