As A New Year Begins…
|January 3, 2014||Posted by Sarah under Fitness, Fun, Health & Wellness, Lifestyle|
As 2013 came to an end, I couldn’t help reflect on all of the good, the bad and the ugly that has gone on this year. I’m not one for resolutions, in fact, I actually despise them. It’s basically a way to set yourself for failure. But I always like to look back, reflect and see how I can improve. Here are the things that stuck out to me:
Strength & Fitness
I’ve been going strong with CrossFit for about a year and a half now and I really want to take it to the next level in 2014. My progress have been kind of stagnant in many movements due to the tightness in my hips, but I am committed to work on my hip mobility at home and with my coach. Look I even got my own WOD this week!
This year I want to work on my form, particularly with snatches and overhead squats, I want to work on my double unders because they basically don’t exist now, and to FINALLY get a pull up. 3…2…1…GO!
I’ve been plagued with this crappy (pun intended) disease and for the past few months it has gotten the best of me. It has consumed my thoughts, my emotions and my overall feeling of wellness. It’s really hard to not let that happen, especially after dealing with it for over 10 years with no end in sight. My doctors have recommended that I try Humira, but I just don’t feel like it’s the right thing for me right now.
So I’m going to overcome it this year. I can’t get in a funk like this again…I just can’t because it actually makes my symptoms worse. If I have a flare, I will deal with it head on. I will focus more on my food and try to pin point what if anything is affecting me.
Smile & Explore
I have an amazing family and live in a beautiful area. B and I tend to waste our weekends away at home on our computers or in front of the TV. There is so much out there that we haven’t experienced and I want to make a point to get out there (when it gets warmer of course!) and enjoy it!
- Visit more goats in Vermont
- Go to the top of Mount Washington
- Go to Block Island this summer
- Ride bikes around Jamestown, RI
- Tackle some of the Mohonk Scrambles
All of these are within 3 hours from home…so what’s my excuse??
I want to make this a great year and I hope you’ll come along with me for the ride!
What do you want to do this year?
