2017 Results!

Tuesday, January 02, 2018

Well congratulations - not only did I make it through a wonderful year - but you made it with me! One hundred and forty blogs of flowing A Year In The Life! And the results were good! I didn't make all of my goals - but I stuck with my resolutions for an entire year - tracking and striving! Most people can't say that.

New Recipes Made: 64 of 50
Crossfit Classes Attended: 102 of 100
Months less than 125 lbs: 1 of 3
New PRs Accomplished: 27 of 5
Book Chapters Written: 4.5
Blog Posts Written: 140 of 200

I am sad that I didn't write all 200 blog posts - but 140 is the most I've ever written in a year! That's a lot of blogs! I can honestly say that all of you are my reason for blogging. You keep me accountable. You share your stories and enjoy mine. I even told Amelia the other day that she's more famous than she realize, being featured on my blogs often! She thought that was pretty cool.

I had NO idea that I was capable of having 27 new personal workout records in one year. I thought 5 was doable. I obviously underestimated myself! This year has been quite a year of growth for me for Crossfit. The first year was about learning the fundamentals and becoming fit. This second year has all been about pushing myself even harder than I could have imagined. It's been about getting stronger, going more often and learning some new skills. All of this was accomplished because I attended over 100 classes - another resolution accomplished!!This year I plan to do more of the same, but to also focus on learning skills - like double unders, pull-ups and box jumps. These are all items I've wanted to do, but I think they should really be my focus.

And now we venture in to 2018. I always start my resolutions on the 2nd of January each year - giving myself one free day a year with positively no goals! (and to reflect that I pretty much didn't move from the couch all day yesterday. Thanks Hulu!) Just a reminder on my 2018 goals for this year:

-Log in to Spark People all 365 days of the Year
-Log 8,000 Fitness Minutes
-Read 12 Books
-Average 49,000 Steps Per Week on Fitbit
-Have a Trackable Monthly Goal Each Month

My trackable goal for January is to not hit the snooze button! I did this once before for a month and I can tell you - I didn't like the first week but in the long run it really changes the game for me. This morning I didn't hit the snooze (which lately I've been averaging-3-4 a day). I didn't get out of bed right away, but I didn't fall back to sleep. I think tomorrow I'll get up and do some yoga instead of hitting the snooze!

Happy 2018 all! May your resolutions start strong and your year be happy and healthy!

    I have to do the no snooze button thing too. Too easy to hit it when it's so cold out!

    well done on 2017!

    I need to put a stop to the 'active couch potato' lifestyle. I'm great at exercising, but when I'm at home or at work, I need to move more during the day.

    I thought about you yesterday when I was concocting a stuffing mix for my baked acorn squash. I mixed kale, walnuts, raisins, baby portabellas, celery, and onions. It turned out really good!

    You did awesome in 2017!!!

    LOL-son (age 20) and I watched Amazon Prime New Year's Eve. HMM had a Psych (the TV show) marathon we watched yesterday. Son made home made chicken noodle soup without a recipe. Little bland. My January goal is brushing my teeth more then only a day-I get so busy!
