New Years Goals

I’m not much for New Year’s Resolutions. But I do enjoy setting New Year’s Goals for myself. So…let’s check in on my 2013 Goals and set some new ones for 2014!


I did not do so great on my 2013 goals. But, the year threw me some curve balls and I was literally physically unable to do many of them. I will not let that discourage me.

  • do 1 unassisted pull up << DONE!!! In fact, I got 10 kipping pull ups.  (Now on to a Strict Pullup, See 2014 Goals)
  • handstand walk << Nope… not yet
  • run 1 mile in 7:30min <<< Nope… dang ACL
  • run half marathon (?) <<<< Triple Nope


  • blog 20x per month << Nope. My best months were Jan/Feb @11 each.  Worst months were May/Dec @2 each
  • take more pictures << Check! Subscribing to the iCloud has helped free up much more room on my phone for more pictures!
  • volunteer 1x per month << Negative. I did 3 volunteer projects. That’s not even 1 a quarter!
  • be free of credit card debt (so close!) << Hip-Hip-Hoorah!  Yes, this one is done. And baby it feels so good.
  • save $xxx << i have a specific number, just not putting it out here << Nope. A drastic reduction in income and extra medical expenses stood in the way here.

  • get 50+ double unders.  (pre surgery i was at 47. now, post surgery i’m at 8)
  • deadlift bodyweight x1.5 (pre surgery my 2 Rep Max was 170lbs) 
  • get back to running (comfortably with knee…maybe a 5k?)
