Welcome 2012

I'm not big on New Year's Resolutions.  Mostly because I never, ever keep them.  This year I've decided to have goals.  And to help me out with this, I've joined a challenge over at Ben Does Life.  It's 12 weeks long and I'm a little scared.

The first week's challenge is this:

~ Write down five quantifiable goals for yourself. (This includes knowing where you're starting)
~ on Monday, do as many push ups as you can.
~ Beginners 120 minutes of exercise this week. Intermediate/Advanced add 30 minutes to your current weekly total.
~ Identify your biggest excuse and write it down.  Then write down ways to eliminate the excuse.
~ Each night before bed, write down four things you did well that day.

WHEW!! When I first read it, I thought "No big deal, I've got this".  Then I started thinking about it.  Five Quantifiable goals? Yikes!! Four things I did WELL?  Ah gee. 

I guess that's what makes it a challenge!!

Happy New Year!



  1. I saw this challenge but only at the last minute. Didn't sign up but I think it is a great idea!

  2. That sounds like a great challenge! And, I like how it's all about evaluating what's going on in your life instead of making "resolutions"! Good luck!!

  3. Hi there, I've just noticed that you are one of my followers but I've never visited you! I'm glad I did ... I am 46 years old and have always dreamed of being able to run (okay, I'll accept a slow jog). I'll now follow along on your journey and hopefully garner some inspiration! Good luck!
