Personal Goals for 2013

I recently realized that I tend to work really hard towards fitness goals or events (e.g. NWM 2012, cabbage soup diet, ESPN basketball game), but once it’s over… OH IT’S OVER.

Confession: yesterday was the first time I went running in over 10 days. That doesn’t sound too bad, but that’s pretty bad for someone who usually runs at least 2 miles EVERY day. Not to mention that I have been eating as if I were still working out every day, aka an extra like 500 calories. And while I do still eat clean, eating over your estimated calorie intake will result in weight gain regardless.

So, as a solution to this fitness drop-off habit, I’ve been thinking about a long term goal I can continue to work towards. 

By the end of 2013, I want to do a straddle press handstand again. “Again” because I used to have it, when I was at the peak of my fitness as a gymnast.

It takes extraordinary core strength and control of the body to be able to do these… but after going to last night’s gymnastics meet, I’m determined to get them back! 


I am IN LOVE with Brittany’s “new” skill on uneven bars. I feel like its been such a long time since I’ve seen someone take advantage of just a simple change of grips in a stalder element. She just needs to be careful of her angle. Plus I’d love to see her throw it in NCAA Event Finals if she makes it as well!
