Happy New Year to All

Hoping everyone reaches their fitness goals in 2011.

And what are mine, you ask?

Funny thing. Here I am. 41 years old. Great wife, great daughter, great job, and my fitness level is 1,000 times better than it was 2 years ago. I am not the best Crossfitter, but I am decent at most things, good at some, and great and one or two (strict press bodyweight plus 30# anyone?)

So in other words, it is pretty easy to take a casual attitude and just coast along doing the same old. Only that is not how I got this thing going. But instead, it is what I did for 10 plus years as I let things go. No specific goals, no direction, and no measurable standards.

For 2011, I am going to break it up into medium term goals. Goal #1 is tied-in with Pete's Paleo Challenge.

I am in it to win it. And by win it, I mean accomplish my written goal. To go from current 162 to goal of 157 in 12 weeks. As I wrote there:

I am ready for the PPC. Starting weight a sorta puffy 162. Goal=157. Sure, that sounds easy, but this is literally the "last 5" and I have not been lower than 160 since age 16. In 2009 I went from 187 to 165 while following the Primal Blueprint, in 2010 while being mostly strict - I lost a grand total of 2#. So this 5# is a solid challenge for me. Wild cards - 2 trips to Vegas in Q1. Brief, but I am gonna lose a lot of points there

So there you have it. I have a goal, I wrote it down, and I will let you all know how it goes.

Happy New Year.
