Goals

DJ / 7 Years Ago

Goals... we all have them (well, most of us anyway). Mine tend to more amorphous than most, a feature that often frustrates my wife. She is all about concrete goals and self improvement. So, this blog entry should please her because I am laying out some of my goals for the rest of the year.

This is my second try at this entry - I lost it all the first time because my internet connection at the hotel in which I am staying reset like it does once a day. Frustrating to say the least.

1. Losing weight. I have been in the 190s for the last 10 years or so, despite the fact that my target weight is in the 170s. It is time to get back to where I belong. I need to lose 2 - 3 pounds a month to reach this by the end of the year. That is a reasonable goal at a reasonable pace.

2. Cardiovascular fitness. For the last several years, my run time for the mile and a half run has been in the 13:11 to 13:50 range. My goal is to get this number to 12:00 in time for my next fitness test at the end of October. This, combined with my weight loss should get me to scoring in the mid 80s on my fitness test, compared to 77 last month.

3. Stop biting my fingernails. I have done this as long as I can remember. It has proven very difficult to stop. I know I am capable of stopping, and I don't want to make excuses for it anymore. I don't want to do it anymore. I will stop.

4. Finish major identified projects on flees.net so I can start working on The Awesome Theory once again. Granted, there will always be things to do on flees.net, but it will be more tweaking once I get all of the big stuff done. The site has come a long way in the last year, but it still has a ways to go.

If I can manage to accomplish all of these things in a reasonable time frame, I may just be able to reward myself with a pinball machine, which I have wanted to own since I was quite young, providing it is financially feasible at the time. I know I can do this. I will do this. I will accomplish my goals!
