Did you hear the scream?
I trod on it, with both feet and not holding on to anything.
Poor thing appears to have survived, although I’m not sure that’s necessarily a good thing.
What am I talking about?
The scales 😱😱😱
Now I’ve known I was going to have to do it.
I’ve known that I’ve been stuffing everything in sight down my throat. But I’ve also known that I will put a stop to it and that I will get my head together.
I’ve been targetless for a while and I haven’t been able to think of a new one.
I do best with big recordable targets as was proved by the 59to60 ones. I need ones that survive ‘bad’ weeks so that I can either plan for them in advance or make up for it afterwards.
Hang on, if I can do that with exercise why can’t I do it with food????
Anyway, last night it came to me …….
TARGET ONE – in 2016 I will walk 2016 kilometres.
These will have to be recorded by GPS (or on the treadmill, boring!!!) but can be of any length (that covers any recuperation needed.)
As always, once I get ‘the big one’ the rest seem to flow.
TARGET TWO – average three training sessions per week.
Now this is going to be a ‘fail’ in week one as I’ll be in hospital and I know I’ll need some recovery time hence ‘average’.
TARGET THREE – to be leaner.
I know what the starting point is 😡 But you don’t need to. I also know what my targets are and I’ll set myself various ‘key dates’ on the way. I am not going to be the ‘fat client’!
TARGET FOUR – to qualify as a search technician.
I’m already part way through my training. Sadly this op may interfere with the throw line training and even the initial search course …… but I’m hoping not!
So that’s all sorted out then
Today my nutrition’s been good and I blasted my program at the gym 😃 And I now feel better than I have in ages, strange that.
Tomorrow I have my final blood test and ‘harvesting’ in case I need some back.
Wednesday will be my last gym session and then I’ve got a massage booked.
And Thursday is operation day
Now I’ve never had an operation or a general anaesthetic before so I’m ending / starting the year with new experiences!
I started by saying that I don’t do resolutions, but I do do targets. I failed at the final stage of the belt notch target, but I haven’t forgotten it and it would be great if, over the course of the year I could meet that too!
My next blog post will almost certainly be about my operation
In the meantime, Happy New Year everybody and get setting your targets!
