Happy new year! I hope you all celebrated in style and have got off to a good start in 2015. We had a few friends over for cocktails so I imagine most of them have started 2015 with a sore head. January 1st hasn't been too great for me for other reasons but fingers crossed things improve as the year goes on.
This time last year I blogged about what I wanted to achieve in 2014. I prefer to think of them as goals rather than resolutions and I think I was fairly successful with most of them...
Stop being so greedy/lazy and get under 20% body fat... I'm currently working on staying there.
Go up to an 8kg weight at kettlebell classes... I've been using a 10kg bell for a few months now!
Climb Bennachie... We climbed it twice and are hopefully doing it again tomorrow, weather permitting.
Beat my time at the Baker Hughes 10k... Did it in 57.52! I was 1 hour 5 minutes the first time.
Say "yes" & take more chances... I completed two obstacle races (one of which saw me crawl through clay and swim in lochs) and went paintballing. Those that know me will know this is kind of a big deal for me - I hate any kind of "fun" that involves pain but actually had a great time!
Travel as much as possible... I visited London with my sister, had a roadtrip around Scotland and my first ever trip to Ireland.
Having my goals written down to go back to was really helpful - I read over them in October and it motivated me to push hard and achieve them by the end of the year. So here I am, in January 2015, setting myself some new challenges and goals to work towards throughout the year.
- Get more organised with my wedding planning!
- Pass my driving test.
- Maintain my body fat at less than 20% - reach 18%!
- Keep lifting heavier weights. (12kg kettlebell, maybe?)
- Run as many races as possible and beat my previous times.
- Raise money for a worthy cause.
