GOALS {2014 Edition}

ex goals2Buckle up beotches! I have been doing a lot of thinking about my physical abilities and where I want to go for 2014. I have been thinking about this for a good 6 weeks and consulting with my trainers and everything. I have been thinking about my food and have experimented over the past 10 days to see what effect sugar really has on me.

2014 is going to be the first full year of CrossFit for me. 2013 I saw fantastic gains, loss of inches but also injuries. So 2014 is going to be broken up into mini-goals, so I have something to go for every 3 months {which will help keep me on track} and will allow me the ability to adjust things if there is an illness or injury.

  1. Be More Consistent. I have been hit and miss with my consistency in going to CrossFit and I could be doing better if I were to pick specific days to go and just do it. So I commit to 4 days a week for the first quarter of 2014. Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday. If Saturday WOD is not available, then I go Friday. I also commit to being early for my WOD’s. I am tired of myself for being late all the time. It stops now. As a side note, my 4 days a week is a precursor to me going 5 days a week, which is a long-term goal for me for 2014. Baby steps.
  2. RX a WOD by March 31st. You heard me. I want to do a prescribed workout. My conditioning is getting better and better, so it’s time to start dabbling in the higher weights, slowing down a bit, and doing it. Big girls panties? Oh yeah. They are going to be put on.
  3. ex goals3Give up sugar 100%, forever, by February 28th. I am not fucking kidding about this one. I need to give this shit UP. Thankfully I have a plan. I have been thinking about this the most. I am going to do a Whole30 starting January 6th. It will be the right time to take sugar out but also detox my body from other things I have become accustomed to. I have a partner at my box, Skip, who agreed tonight to do it with me, so we can share recipes and suffer together. I also have a friend, Andrea, who will send me a PDF of the program so I don’t have to spend money on it. I know I will be able to get through the meals, it’s going to be the snacks and evening which will be the hardest. I love sugar in my snacks, even if it’s just honey, and I love, love, love dessert. So I have been thinking about my snacks and my evenings I will simply not have dessert. I need to be a grown-ass-woman and make dessert a special thing and not a nightly thing.
  4. I want to be able to run the Warrior Dash. This means I want to grow my running abilities. This means, for my March dash, I will be running on my days “off” from CrossFit. I haven’t decided if I am going to do a specific running guide or if I am just going to figure out how far away 3.1 miles is and run/walk there. I will need a running app to give me information on my run and thank goodness there are a ton out there. Running is a major weakness of mine. I want to get better and the only way is to focus on it.

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but I haven’t mentioned anything about losing weight or going down a size. I have learned this year that if I am lifting heavy weights {which I am}, I am not going to go down the way society thinks I should be. Instead I am going to have large thighs {love it!}, a round, firm ass, and the stamina to perform better and better everyday. And that is what matters to me. I plan on being a force. And it’s going to start in my mind. If I have a plan, then I am planning to win. I also plan on telling as many people as possible. If I flag or feel overwhelmed, I want to know I will have someone in my life to kick my ass and get me out there regardless.

2014 is going to be amazing. It’s my year.
