This is my before photo. I weighed 15 pounds more, was exhausted all of the time and wasn't getting better at crossfit, running or life. It was time for a change.

Fitness Goals for 2014

So it's been a long time since I've posted anything on my blog.  The new year is a time when most people make a resolution or two.  I'm not making any resolutions.  I feel like I'm at a great place in my life.  I've already given up anything junky and have added in as many healthy things as I can handle.  So instead I've opted to work on my goals.  My long term goal is to get a bar muscle up this year.  I've worked on them on and off over the 4 years I've been crossfitting, but always end up giving up.  Too many times I've hurt my shoulder and then stop because it begins to affect my wods (and I can't have that!).

This year, I've asked the coaches to help me.  I've video taped a few of them doing them so that I can watch the progression in slow motion.  I've figured out the best way for me to work into them slower, so I don't get hurt.  I've been doing them on the blue band pretty well.  I'd moved to the red/purple band and it was still great.  Then I tried the red alone and couldn't quite catch it high enough.  So now, I'm moving back to the blue and making sure I can hit two sets of ten before trying the red again.  I think this will work better.  I wasn't spending enough time on each band.

What goals do you have and how do you plan to get there?
