2014 - Challenge ACCEPTED!
I have been working at this for a few years now but I have only been working at it diligently for the last couple. I have seen progress not only in my weight and inches lost, but also in my energy, stamina and determination. I have a new outlook on life. In 2013, I enjoyed pushing myself to try things that others said I couldn't do and I enjoyed pushing myself to work harder than I thought was possible. 2013 was the year for me to work on me. A year dedicated to showing myself how to Enjoy Life ...
I have been working at this for a few years now but I have only been working at it diligently for the last couple. I have seen progress not only in my weight and inches lost, but also in my energy, stamina and determination. I have a new outlook on life. In 2013, I enjoyed pushing myself to try things that others said I couldn't do and I enjoyed pushing myself to work harder than I thought was possible. 2013 was the year for me to work on me. A year dedicated to showing myself how to Enjoy Life and Enjoy ME! I can honestly say that I have more days than not where I can look at myself in the mirror and see all my imperfections, but not focus on them. I can see my imperfections AND yet appreciate them because I've worked hard to get to where I am. I can see my imperfections and still know that I am beautiful...and not just on the inside, but on the outside as well! Throughout 2013 I used the phrase "Challenge Accepted" more than I ever have and so I decided that my motto for 2014 is going to be "Challenge Accepted!" I'm not going to just think it, but I'm going to say it as well. I want others to know that I may see something as a challenge, but it is still something that I plan to conquer! I will spend this year looking for new things to push myself and returning to old things that I gave up on. I'm done with letting my old mindset determine how I may or may not be able to live my life. I am a new person both mentally and physically and it is time for me to let the world get to know the new me!
Things I plan on doing in 2014:
Completing Insanity!! By the time 2014 begins I will only have 2 1/2 weeks left of Insanity, but I need to still plan on finishing because as the end draws near to a program, that's usually when it gets the most difficult for me to finish.
Doing and Completing Shaun T's Hip Hops Abs
Doing and Completing Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred
Doing and Completing 1 month-long challenge each month, or 12 (minimum) throughout the year.
Kayak from Young's State Park across Lake Charlevoix and through part of Lake Michigan into Petoskey. Last year I kayaked across Lake Charlevoix and into Charlevoix, but this year I want to go farther!
Things I would like to do in 2014:
Skydive and/or do a ZipLine
Rock Climbing - It doesn't have to be a mountain, I'd be ok with a wall :) - DONE!! 3/8/2014
Run a Half-Marathon - In order for me to do this, I need to be able to get my neck problems figured out so I don't pass out after running only 2 miles. lol
Go to an Aquarium - I know it's not a physical thing, but it is something I really want to do and I plan on walking a lot when I'm there :)
Go to the Zoo - Same as the Aquarium :)
Pay off my Loans!! - Again, not physical, but once I get this paid off, I can start saving my money to be used on things that can be physical, like a road trip to climb a mountain or pay for my "Goal Reached!" trip to the Philippines! :D
