But regarding the title of this post - I apparently accepted way too many challenges for the month of December and have therefore, pretty much failed at all of them.
I didn't blog for 25 days about Christmas, I haven't weighed in every Wednesday, and I haven't tracked my reps for the 2012 Closeout Workout Challenge.
Maybe I should feel a little remorseful for "failing" - but to be honest, I'm a little apathetic about it.
I'm bummed I didn't lose any weight - but I haven't gained, so that's something. I kept forgetting to blog about Christmas, but I doubt any of you cared too much (it's OK though - I wasn't even that excited about most of my answers) and I've probably done close to 2012 reps of exercise, but who wants to count and keep track of that many?
So it's December 29th and it's almost 2013 so it's time to start fresh with some new goals for the coming year. There are so many things I'd love to try or do, but don't because I'm fearful that I won't be successful. I love to accomplish tasks, but am hesitant about starting one's that I'm not confident about the outcome.
But another quote that I often refer to reminds me that goals are supposed to be scary and challenging.
A couple months ago, Donny pitched the idea that after my half in January, we start training for a full marathon. Running twice as long as I ever have before, terrifies me. But that's good, because if I were honest with myself, I would love to run even more than a marathon. I would love to run an ultra or compete in a full triathlon. But my fear of failure keeps me from actually pursuing those secret goals.
So all that to say, in 2013 I would like to...
•Run a full marathon
•Get to my goal weight of 145 pounds
•Keep my house tidy
•Find more ways to serve & bless my husband
•Grow the blog
What are your goals for 2013, both safe and scary one's?
