- Start training for a 10k.

I’ve never been one to set New Years resolutions. I have always viewed them as false promises people make to themselves. Rather than disappointing myself by failing, I opted not to “disillusion” myself.
As I was listing out my goals for 2011, I decided this year is different. I will make resolutions for myself. If I fail, at least I can say I tried.
This brings me around to trying. I started this journey to get healthy (and this blog) Oct 1, 2010. If I am completely honest with myself, most days I fake it or half ass it.
Which leads me to ask; why do I talk such a big game and not bother to even give it 100% effort?
Fear of change? Fear of the unknown? Fear of committment? Why am I just going through the motions of life, rather than taking charge and actively directing my life?
It’s actually really simple. I am lazy. Which, by the way, coincidentally explains why/how my life got to where it is now.
Ask anyone that knows me in “real” life. Most, if not all, will tell you I could do anything I wanted, but I am lazy and never finish anything.
It is time to stop offering lip-service and actually do something and take charge.
Here is a list of 80 words that WILL describe my life in 2011.
Have you thought of your goals/resolutions for 2011 yet? If so what are they?
