New Goal for 2015

keep-calm-and-set-new-goals-257x300I’ve decided to challenge myself with a bigger goal: 14,500 minutes. Nearly 3,000 minutes more than my narrowly missed goal for 2014. This will encourage me to make more time to workout all through the year, because I will have a bigger number to hit.

I also plan to switch from resistance bands to tubes; I just have to decide which weight I need to advance to the next level. I’ve also been considering returning to my calisthenics routine, with some tweaks. Perhaps, only the standing exercises, to start.

I will post again after I’ve decided on my new schedule.

Failed to Reach December and Year Goal

failure-successDue to the flu, which is still dragging me a bit, I failed to meet my December and end-of-year goal. It was disheartening, but I’m optimistic about 2015.

My goal for the whole of 2014 was 11,509 minutes, but thanks to my success in October and November (1800+ minutes) I’m quite certain that I can do even better in 2015 – provided illness does not, once again, intervene. I haven’t decided on a 2015 year-end goal, but I think 12,000+ is more than doable, as long as I stay on task throughout the year. When I decide on the exact number I’ll post again.

For the month of December I exercised 1024 minutes, even though I spent more than half the month very ill and unable to workout. My total for the year is 10,983, so, I missed my goal by only 526 minutes, which means that had I not fell ill, I would have not only reached my goal but exceeded it.

I am back to working out regularly, despite the lingering sickness, that is still affecting my ability to take deep breathes. I am not doing as much as before, but I hope to be back up to speed soon. 🙂

Setting a new goal for September

I Exercised for more than 12 hours last month! I checked my exercise journal after today’s workout, and it appears that I exercised a total of 722 minutes in August. I hope that I can top that in September.

My goal is 800 minutes. And I want them to be quality minutes. I will only add them up on the first of October, or the last day of September, so that I am not overly conscious of how much time I spend working out.

This will be my first new goal in months. I am planning to add in some new exercises this Autumn, and Autumn begins this month. Still have not decided what the new exercises will be, but I am sure hand weights will be involved. Will probably work on that this coming week, or next weekend. No time this weekend. Will post the new workout as soon as I have created it and done it at least once, so that I am sure that it’s good.
