I have always been hesitant to use the term resolution mostly because I associated it with not being happy and wanting to change. What better time for a resolution than the new year... a new start... a fresh slate... The only problem is the reset button on the scale does not take away the countless trips past the snacks on the counter, grabbing one delectable treat each time. I do have weight-loss as one of my "resolutions", which I will get to in a while, but there are a number of things I just would like to see happen in 2012, so rather than calling them resolutions, I am calling them Revolutions
" the act of resolving or determining upon an action or courseof action, method, procedure, etc."
I do prefer this definition to what it is in my head, but I have decided to take 2012 in the direction of revolution:
"a sudden, complete or marked change in something"
- Spend some time each day reading a devotional and bible verses, reflecting on what they mean to me
- Be the best dad I can to Carter and Caleb
- Cleaner eating - less sugar and sweets, more fruits and veggies
- Limit eating out to no more than one meal a week
- Smarter choices when I do eat out
- Stay injury free!!!
- Race weight by REV3 Knoxville 160-163 lbs (Jan 1 - 185 lbs)
- REV3 Knoxville Olympic - 2:15
- REV3 Wisconsin Dells - 2:15
- REV3 Cedar Point - Sub 5
- I recently read on Joel's Blog that he wanted to swim 250,000 yards in 2012. That number seems large, but when broken down, only amounts to 4800 a week. Did you know that a quarter million yards is over 10,000 laps in my pool? It comes out to over 142 miles.. just over the distance of an Ironman race. I am adding this to my to do list for 2012.
- I also saw a lot of chatter about people doing a swim set: 100x100s. Yep 10,000 Yards in one workout. Yep... 5.68 miles! Add that to the list as well.
- Increase FTP on the bike - 260 is the target
- Maintain sub 7s on a 10k
- More sub 20 minute 5ks!
