My current fitness goal is primarily to become toned. I’m pretty skinny, but squishy, so some muscle would be awesome. I love rock climbing so my main quest is to climb a 5.10b route. I think by the time I get to being able to do that I’ll likely be pretty darn toned.

 

Some things I would like to be able to do with my soon to be fit self are:

  • Improve my upper body strength (pretty important for climbing)
    • Be able to do a pull-up (that would be awesome)
    • Maybe a hand stand? I’m kind of tall and gangly, that might be a stretch.
  • Take a yoga class (improved flexibility would be awesome)
  • Run a 5K
  • Teach T’ai Chi again.
  • Rock climb outdoors
  • Climb a 5.9
  • Climb a 5.10a
  • Climb a 5.10b
  • Climb a 5.10c
  • Climb a 5.11a
  • Take a lead climbing class
  • Paddleboard yoga
  • Be able to climb a rope
  • Reduce fried food intake (I have cut caffeine, artificial sweeteners, dyes, and so many other things, but I loooove chips)
  • Weight lift (I’ve always loved hand weights, I just never moved up to the big guns)
  • Kayak/paddle-board regularly (2x a month would be nice)
  • Begin aerial yoga
  • Deadlift 100 lbs
  • Deadlift 150 lbs
  • Bench Press 50 lbs
  • Bench Press 75 lbs

I climbed a 2 5.9 routes today! It was sloppy, but it happened!

 

A couple routes I'd been struggling with last week finally happened. Finally made it up!!

Maybe I need to change my goal to climbing a 5.11 or something, I think I'll get there!

 

But gahhh, it's getting cold! I like trail running and that just stinks in this weather. Must keep running from zombies, though!

I've successfully tackled my first 5.10a! Taking a lead climbing course in February!

Purchased a hangboard and pullup bar to help practice while I'm at home.

Also purchased an aerial hammock for yoga, aerial, and trx training!

 

I've never been so excited, happy, and fit in my entire life!

The gym I climb at just changed up their routes, I love having new stuff to work on! Lots of 5.9 and 5.10's, even a couple 5.11's that I really want to try.

So excited!

Also, deadlifted 110lbs and completed a 40min 5k. Not bad for someone who couldn't run a single mile a few short months ago.

I've never been so fit, ever!

Just took a lead climbing class, never thought I would've come this far in such a short time!
