“It’s better to burn out than to fade away” ~Neil Young
TOTALLY have mixed feelings looking back at 2014.
Love love love love all this:
- Two amazingly awesome incredible this-is-so-me/can-I-do-this-forever backcountry hiking trips with my coz
- A 25K trail run, a half-marathon road race, and a handful of smaller trail races
- A winter snowshoeing backcountry adventure; a crazy road trip to off-season Glacier National Park in Montana; an #unexpecteddrive to Alberta’s badlands = all with my girl, J.
- Losing 30ish pounds
Not so in love with this:
- ONLY losing 30ish pounds (it should have been more)
But now I just sound greedy.
Last year I wrote: “2014 is about getting fit, and getting outside. Losing weight is the icing on the cake + the foam on my beer, but the ultimate goal is to be healthy and fit.”
Anyway, I DID GET OUTSIDE which was my main goal for 2014. And I had SOOOO much fun.
But I think in my heart of hearts, I didn’t JUST want to get outside. I wanted to be in crazy good shape, have muscles, no body fat and of course, continue to explore the mountains and weigh a whole lot less. So – I think I need to revamp my goals for this coming year to reflect those thoughts!
If that’s what I really want, I’m going to have to work really hard and be super committed for #LeanMean2015.
[insert whine here] I was really trying to do that “everything in moderation” stuff in 2014 and balance the h-e-double-hockey-sticks out of my life, but oddly enough when I stopped going balls to the wall with the weight loss in around June and just followed a ‘program,’ my results were not as dramatic. True? False? Hm. Or did I get lazy?
Down with moderation! Go big or go home. Will this work in 2015?? WE SHALL SEE.
Game plan to follow!! Have a DELIGHTFUL New Year’s Eve.
