R7D71-73 – Goals

It’s been a while since I reset my goals.

I’m wearing my big reward, a Suunto T6 heart rate monitor that I gave myself for hitting 50lbs lost. I don’t have any more rewards in mind, mostly because with the baby I can’t face spending on myself but also because I am in uncharted territory only being about 15-20lbs from my goal weight.

So what to do? Well, goals aren’t just things, rewards or a pat on the back, goals should also be performance based. So I am looking to set some performance based goals for the next few months. I am about to enter Round 8, whatever that may be, and I need to work on some personal bests for the following:

1km run
Shoulder Press
Barbell Clean
Clean and Press
Weighted pushups
All the Fit Tests – P90X, Insanity, Insanity:Asylum
Crossfit WODs such as Angie, Fran etc.

To start I need a baseline which I will be working on over the next 2 weeks. Then I can decide what I want to hit and when.

For the first time ever I am not going to use measurements as a goal, even though my weight will still play a role. I definitely want to hit my ultimate goal of 220 by the end of the year. Hopefully I will hit before then, and figure out how to stay there!

  1. I need to set some goals. right now I see how I am feeling that day (my arm) and see what I have done that week and what I need to do. I’d love more workout toys as well but like you my Samantha is where my spare money goes so my 5 lb dumbbells will just have to do. My hubby finally showed some interest in workout again. He is over weight and very out of shape. He also works about 60 hours a week so him feeling like working out when he gets off of work instead of playing PS3 is kinda hard for him. I’d love for him to get your drive since he has diabetes in his family!

  2. Have faith that he will… It takes all of us some pretty significant events to get us off the couch. I am just scared to death of dying young and leaving my beautiful daughter without a father. I know its hard to portion money but in the end, if it’s a worthwhile investment in your health and future then sometimes you just have to do it.
