2017 F*ck It List
After much thinking and discussing with Eddie over the past month and, especially during our weekend in the woods, I’ve narrowed down a few goals for 2017. I love having goals to work on – it’s fun for me. This year I am trying to be a bit more focused, fewer goals, more concise!
Finish the 10 Best Hikes:
- Piestewa Circumference – Freedom Trail #302
- Picketpost Mountain
- Tom’s Thumb
- Boyce Thompson Arboretum
- Reavis Falls
A carry over from 2016 — anything worth doing is worth finishing through to the end.
- Paint the last 3 rooms.
- Move all the river rock out of the backyard.
Get Lean and Mean!:
This goal will have many awesome bits to it.
To start – for the first 21 days of this year I am going to do a Beach Body routine – 21 Day Yoga Retreat. I want to start adding more strength and HIIT type workouts, but I feel yoga is a great way for me to keep working on strengthening my shoulder and patching up some old injuries that nag me here and there before I get all hellishly crazy buff.
Also – the first 3 weeks of the year I am going to be modifying what I shove down my gullet and reverting back to eating a “clean” diet. I need to get off the sugar, caffeine, alcohol, processed food train I’ve been snagging a ride on here and there! I’m betting this first week of 2017 I am going to be an ABSOLUTE JOY to be around, to be sure.
Lean and mean – here I come – GRRRR.
Pay off debt is too general – really, ideally, I just want us to become more financially fit. So I have set 3 smaller goals that feel more accomplish-able:
- Build a Rainy Day Fund
- Pay off car
- Pay off Aoife’s medical bill
A Fun Running Event or Goal:
Open to suggestions – I am thinking something like train for a multi-event weekend (not a Ragnar) or set a goal using something like Charity Miles with Murphy for the year. For January, I signed up for a Ragnar 30 Day Event on Facebook – log a workout every day for 30 days. Murphy will be so excited to hear all about it when I get home!
I either want to go back to finish my degree or take the credits I’ve done so far and at least acquire a Certificate in Organizational Leadership. First things first, in January I will make an appointment with a counselor at MCC to discuss my options.
So there you have it – 2017 F*ck It List!
Happy New Year My Friends!
