I Lied. . .

. . .I said I wasn't going to post but. . .

I put together a little to do list for the week so that I am fully prepared for all my new year's goals:


1) Find a pool ✔  I did a little research this morning and I am going to try out Bally's.  I even printed out a seven day guest pass to use for the week :)


2) Contact some gyms about hiring requirements (certifications, experience, etc.).  I plan to talk to someone at Bally's while I'm there.


3) I STILL have not decided on a bike because I have not gotten to the other bike shops, there are two I plan to go to this week, both with expertise on Tri-ing.


4) Do a little research and start putting together some training plans for my various races and goals.  (I've kind of been winging it right now, which works okay for 5ks, but probably is unwise for all my other races.  Even breaking 20 in the 5k will most likely require a good plan)


5)    I forgot to mention this in my previous New Year's post, but I plan to start cooking some healthier stuff this year.  There will probably be a bit of a learning curve for me and I will be blogging about my adventures/ mishaps.    This goal was in part inspired by all the AMAZING recipes I have seen on healthy living blogs.  
         This week I am going to print out some of the recipes  I'd like to try and put them together in a binder that I will add to frequently.  A lot of times I see something that I really want to make and then I forget where it is from or that I had wanted to make it.   I am very excited about putting this together and I'm going start it today (like as soon as this is posted :D) !!


6)   De-junk the house.  My MIL sent me home with a wide array of assorted cookies and candies, despite my insistence that we did not need or want it.  Apparently they are all on diets.  I'm willing to ship it away, anyone want Godiva ;)


That looks like enough to keep me busy this week :D
How are you preparing for your goals in the new year?


Also, it looks as though I will be making more cake pops in the future:


Christmas present from my MIL, they are all so adorable!!

Who wants to be  my business partner?  AKA: Who wants to keep me from licking the bowl  ; )


     Lastly,  enter my giveaway  at this link or just below!!  Who doesn't want some fun knee socks to start the New Year!   
     Ends on December 31st and I WILL be getting a few more things to add to it tomorrow :D   So check it out! 


PS: So I guess I may or may not be posting for the rest of the week (most likely no).  Hope you all had a wonderful day yesterday : )

Some great goals for 2011.

My goals are still roaming around inside my head I haven't put them on paper yet.

Srdjan said...

Just like you, I think it's important to put your goals on paper. Write everything down that's important to you.

My goal: Raise $3000 for Cancer.

ERG said...

Great goals, lady! I really relate to #5 and 6!!...

I am still working on mine for this next year. :)

Good luck with finding the right pool. This is important, don't settle for a crappy one b/c you won't be motivated to go if it is crappy - trust me on this one (-:

If you need help with a Tri training plan shoot me an email, I have a bunch of them and just got my wife setup on a sprint plan.

Haven't really thought about 2011, as I still need to go through 2010...

Jason said...

Great job on getting prepared for 2011.

I will most likely be putting together an e-book in the coming week(s) regarding healthy recipes so be on the lookout for that.

That Cake Pop business looks great. Good luck with it.

Jennifer said...

Fantastic goals, I love it! I am working on my 2011 goals right now! xoxo - Jen (from shesafitchick.com)

Good luck with all the stuff you've got to do! I'll be extremely happy with myself if I change out of my pajamas tomorrow. Have a great day! Miriam@Meatless Meals For Meat Eaters

New year new goals! Well done. I like the 5km sub 20: good luck.

Lindsay and James Cotter said...

I love the Dejunk idea. I gave all our junk food to my brother in law who is broke and has no food, haha.

Open up the debate on the bike again. My suggestion is find the right shop first and find out what they say about a bike for your body type...

screwdestiny said...

Wonderful goals! Sounds like you're starting the new year right. :D

Matty O said...

I agree with Jeff. BUT, location is key too. My swim sessions are 5:30am typically... I don't want to get up any earlier than I have to.

Also, be smart on the bike. I have told everyone you do not have to have an expensive bike. I have placed top 3 in a bunch of the races I have done this summer with a cheap bike. Just saying, save your money for the race fees and hotels, triathlon is an EXPENSIVE sport.

Good luck on the goals!

I'll be your cake-ball partner!! Those look fabulous! Can you host a giveaway of those?!!

De-junking is always so cleansing. Maybe you culd "re-gift" them to friends or neighbors!
