Happy New Year! How is it 2018 already, 2017 flew by even though we started the beginning of the year waiting for me to find a job in Brisbane and that seemed to take forever but as soon as the job came along we moved fast and have been living in Brisbane since the beginning of June now!
I don’t really want to set myself New Years Resolutions but I wanted to make some goals or plans for 2018.
1) My primary aim is to be at my goal weight by my next birthday. Given my weight loss during 2017 which would mean I have to loose about the same amount again I believe this is possible and I am excited to be where I want to be and all the benefits that will bring!
2) Complete at least the following fitness events:
a) Triathlon Pink event – I didn’t feel anywhere near ready to complete this event in 2017 but I have signed up for and plan to participate in this event in 2018, even if its the shortest route of swimming 100 metres cycling 4km and running 1km I want to give it a go;
b) Twilight Marathon – I have signed up for the 5km event and I am looking forward to trying to improve on my time and I hope that I am actually running by then.
c) Gold Run 2018 – The Commonwealth Games are taking place on the Gold Coast this year and as part of the Games they are running a 5km Gold run which is an event at the Games but the general public can take place. The race has to be completed within 60 minutes so I better get running!
d) I also want to participate in the RSPCA’s Million Paws Walk, Colour Run and the Leukaemia Foundations Light the Night walks which I completed in 2017 and will sign up for them once the registrations open.
3) Visit Sydney! Visiting Sydney has been on my bucket list since arriving in Australia. My family are coming to visit in July and I have booked us flights and a hotel for a 3 night visit to Sydney with them for the first time. I haven’t visited Sydney yet and I am really looking forward to being a real tourist!
What are your aims for 2018? Do you have New Years Resolutions or do you prefer to have aims or goals?
