So I’ve never been big on resolutions. I have a really hard time sticking with them (as most people do). So instead I am setting myself goals. I’m not trying to lose 20 pounds (well yes but not as a new years thing) or find that new hobby, or clean my house everyday or things like that.
My goal for 2014 is to become an exerciser. I think I may be making this word up! I’m trying to become someone who likes to exercise not just for an end goal. My whole life working out has been a means to an end and with no reason it is hard to be motivated.
In high school sports it was a team activity and everyone had to pull their weight. With running I wanted a better time, or in the case of the marathon, to not get swept or collapse! With triathlons there was a possibility of drowning or collapsing. I’m not a fan of that kind of failure. You know if I fail that’s fine but if I didn’t do the work that is just embarrassing!
I want to be someone who wants to get up in the morning and get that workout in. Come home from work and go for that run. Not because I’m trying to get to a finish line but because I believe in me!!
So, the husband has agreed to kick me out of bed in the morning! Baby steps, baby steps! What are your 2014 goals??
