January - Goals Revisited

I thought it would be a good idea to revisit the goals list I blogged about in November every month to see progress against them.

So, new year and a new start. Let's see where I am.

Health & Fitness
  • Run 5k without stopping
  • Run 5k in less than 30 minutes
  • Run 10k without stopping

  • Run a 7 minute mile
  • Run and finish a half marathon, no time goal
  • Finish a sprint or standard distance triathlon, no time goal
  • Gain more upper body and core strength
  • Have optimal blood pressure instead of normal
  • Lose some a lot of fat
  • Cut down on smoking   DONE (switched to e-cig Dec 2013)
  • Eat less carbs, eat more protein & (good) fat
  • Stop partaking in office 'fat Fridays' EVERY week
  • Remember that lattes (either skinny or normal) are not for every day
  • Remember that diets don't stop just because it's the weekend

  • Alcohol in moderation / less frequently :'(
Knowledge & Learning
  • Read more nutrition books
