Don't say "I don't have enough time", say instead "that's not a priority right now" and see how that makes you feel.

2017 Road Map

 

So I've spent the last few days trying to think about what I really want to get out of 2017, and where I want to be this time next year. There's loads of stuff that I'd love to try on day, but I've paired it down to my three top priorities for 2017.

 

1 - Work/Life Balance

My job moved towards the end of 2016, and I'm not facing a ~2 hour commute each way. I've been giving it my best but it's not something I feel I can deal with long term, so I need to find a solution to this. That might be by pushing for different hours or working from home a couple of days a week, or it may have to mean getting a new job. I just need to keep looking at my options so that I can find a way of getting more of my life back.

 

 

2 - OCRs

I really want to get out running a lot of OCRs this year; I did my first race in October 2016 and instantly new I wanted to keep this up. My ideal would be to do 5/6 over the course of the year.

 

This also means lots of training. My current plan is to focus on Starting Strength for the first challenge of 2017 and get as strong as I can. After that I'm going to have to introduce some more running training again for the "race" bit of OCRs! As the year goes on I'll adapt my training based on whatever I think will give me the best training for upcoming races. This could include all sorts of things aside from lifting and running; obstacle specific training, parkour, bouldering, yoga, gymnastics. Basically I just want to see where this journey takes me.

 

 

3 - Savings

Currently I'm in a bit of credit card debt (though a lot less than I was in last year). With what I earn there's no reason for me not to clear this and to start saving some cash up. I'm not going to set a target figure at this stage, but I don't want to be living in rented houses forever so I need to get saving if I ever want to get a place of my own. I'm looking at needing something like £30k for a deposit, and that's not going to happen over night, so no reason not to start now.

 

 

How this works

Every challenge when I set my goals I should be mindful of these three overarching goals for 2017. I'll be adding copies of my challenge results here and how they link into my overall goals. I expect goal 2 will probably get a lot more love on here than the others, being fitness related, but I may well have the odd challenge goal that link to 1 and 3. I'll be looking at them constantly in the background whether or not they make challenge goals though.

My goals for challenge 1 of 2017:

 

Eat - 15XP

What? Eat the right things as much as possible, and limit the bad stuff

Why? In order to lift strong I need to eat strong, and eat right. 

How? i. Pack breakfasts for work at least 4/5 days per week.

           ii. Pack lunches for work at least 4/5 days per week.

           iii. No buying nonsense at all this challenge. I have enough rubbish left over from Christmas in my house without buying anything on top of that. Nonsense is the food I know is just silly - chocolate, cake, crisps etc.

 

 

Sleep - 10XP

What? Set myself up to get a decent amount of sleep.

Why? Because my body needs recovery time to get stronger, and because I aim to workout early in the morning before work, meaning I have to get up on time.

How? i. In bed every day by 10:30pm, or within 45 minutes of getting home, whichever later.

           ii. No caffeine after 4pm on any day.

 

 

Lift - 15XP

What? Keep lifting!

Why? Because that's the whole focus of the challenge! Also, it's fun!

How? Lift 3x per week following Starting Strength, no exceptions! This should be at the expense of all other exercise - if I have to miss a workout it can be anything else but not this.

 

 

Like It - 10XP

What? Keep a positive attitude to lift by keeping track of the things you're thankful for.

Why? Because I want to be a happy, positive person, and I hope this will keep me on track for that.

How? Record one positive statement in my bullet journal every day, and share them on here unless they're really personal.

 

As you can see the main focus is on the OCR goal this time around. The not buying nonsense goal may help slightly on my goal of amassing wealth however (every little helps!).
