Brownness, Food For Thought

Fitness Fairy

l2110756225-1No such thing, now get your ass out there and do something! I know I do this all the time. I fantasize I am back to 190lbs, can dead lift 500 lbs, and have a 6 pack. Yet there is never a plan present to make it happen just thought lazy, delicious thoughts that make me feel warm and fuzzy until I take off my shirt and realized that my 6 pack is buried under a mound of fat. Yet, that’s OK too. You see, while it’s good to have goals, it is not good to berate yourself or that I am not there already.

Slow and steady. Take for example, I went on a great hike with a good friend where we connected and made plans for next year to do more things like this. The bonus was I got to spend quality time with a friend! And that’s what it comes down to. No more needing a fitness fairy to give me a body I don’t need. Just a healthy lifestyle that allows me to enjoy life with limited injury and illness. This is not to say I am giving up on those goals, but that either way I am OK as long as I am working on them and doing things.

I no longer set goals that overwhelm me or make me feel less of a person. There is plenty of time and forgiveness in my goals because what’s the point if I don’t feel good about myself. To that end, this is my list for how I will end 2016. While some of these do not look like fitness, I included emotional and psychological because they make me feel good.

  1. drink 64 oz of water daily 
  2. Work out 5 days a week
  3. Drink on weekends only
  4. Get down to 205lbs
  5. Eat fruit daily
  6. Meditate daily
  7. Write 300 words daily
  8. Call to connect with 2 people weekly
  9. Date night
  10. Write weekly legal blog 
  11. Hike monthly
  12. Do one run before end of year 
  13. Try new activity before end of year.
