New Year’s Resolutions

I have made a few resolutions, some more serious than others, some running related and some not.

The most important one is obviously my goal of making ‘fireworks’ my most used word on Facebook for the second year in a row.

I want to take my training a lot more seriously this year – do the proper stuff that I don’t do because it’s hard (hills).  Follow a plan for both marathon and ultra training, race well, keep myself healthy.

I’d like to lose some weight.  I’m pretty much the heaviest I have ever been in my life, and I’d like to have less to carry around 35 miles of Round Ripon course come October.  I’d love to say that I am happy with how I look and all of that, but I’m not.  I’m self concious and I feel horrible.  It’s not a good way for someone who has a very unhealthy relationship with food to begin with, so I am going to try and lose weight without being extreme about it.

I want to be a doctor by the end of the year.  I want to be a doctor by the middle of the year.  Hopefully that’s going to happen.

I want to stop doubting myself.  That’s the tough one, I suspect.

    Doubt is such a poisonous thing. I know how it feels to always second guess yourself. It really does hinder you. What I have found to work, is just knowing that things will eventually be okay.

    I wish you the best with your weight loss journey, I’m in the middle of one now and it’s been challenging, but I have a great support system. I can’t wait to see what progress you make during yours. 🙂

    There’s an awful lot of pressure going on there, try not to be so hard on yourself….famous last words coming from me, I do the same. Good luck with the weight loss, I’m with you on that one, I hate the way I look at the moment and also have never weighed so much; in fact I’m too scared to even weigh myself so I’ve no idea how much I weigh. You’ll get there in the end.
