It is only day two of 2014 and I am already excited about what it will bring. I know most people are excited for the fresh start, or the possibilities of what a new year will bring, and well… I guess you could say I am most people. And that isn’t a bad thing.
It is refreshing to see so many people happy, excited, and less depressed. The new year really does bring a sense of joy to people. I am already looking forward to challenges I am setting for myself, competitions I want to participate in, and the excitement of my relationships growing stronger.
As you read in my previous post, last year I was one of those New Years Resolution-ers… This year I am setting goals… Which, I guess, will be accomplished by some resolutions.
Res – o – lu – tion: (Noun) A firm decision to do or not to do something.
I am making the firm decision….
-to not drink alcohol for 30 days
-to add more vegetables to my diet
-to work on my muscle up progression with 9 strict pull ups and 9 strict ring dips three times per week for eight weeks
-to participate in the YLE Nutrition Challenge that starts January 18
-to participate in the 2014 CrossFit Games Open with CrossFit South Denver
In making these firm decisions, these are the goals I hope to achieve by December 31, 2014
-Get a muscle up
-Lower my body fat percentage during the YLE 90 day Nutrition Challenge
-Place higher in the 2014 Open then I did in 2013 and although it isn’t my personal goal to be someone who goes to Regionals, I really hope a team goes from CrossFit South Denver that of course includes Dan
-Be able to do a one-legged squat (Pistol) Rx
-Run a 7 minute (or faster) mile
-Have a sub 7 minute Fran
-Be in the best shape of my life
I will post a follow up after my 90 day YLE Nutrition Challenge, but as of right now here are my numbers:
Body Fat Percentage: 21.35%
Fat Mass: 27.15lbs
Fat Free Mass: 100.45lbs
