2012-366 Day 306 – Resolution Update

1) One blog post (long or short) every day this year. – Down to 60 days left. Amazing to have gone this long, honestly I think this has required more mental endurance than my half marathons. Especially with the later updates I’ve been doing recently. Special thanks to Jess for reminding me before she goes to be when I forget (I’ll usually have the tab open, but won’t have visited it for a while). – On track.

2) Lose 20 pounds. – I’ll tell you what, half marathons will go a long way to helping you with your weight goals if you’re into that sort of thing. I actually had one weigh in on Sunday which pegged me at 219 pounds. After recovering, however, I’m back into the low 220’s, but certainly on the right path. I might actually have this one knocked off by Thanksgiving, and then the trick will be keeping it there through the holidays. Maybe I should shoot for the mid-teens this year so I have some room for bounce back. – On track.

3) Run 600 miles. – Not going to happen, but I’ll take setting a personal record over meaningless accumulation of miles any day. I haven’t run since the half marathon, but I hope to change that this weekend, we’ll see if I can fit a short one in. – Behind.

4) Complete 5th Gup Green belt test by end of year. – There’s a lower division test on Saturday, and this is the first one that I’m not participating in. That’s due to the fact that I’m on the four month cycle now, but it’s a little sad to not be in it. Still on schedule for this one to be done in early January. – COMPLETE.

5) Complete first novel. – November is National Novel Writing Month and if I wasn’t doing this blog, I’d consider using it to try and write this novel. Maybe I’ll fit some work in, but I doubt it. The goal is to write around 1600 words a day (actually 50,000 words for the month) and I’ve actually accomplished that on several of my longer blog posts, but I don’t quite have it in me to do double duty. Maybe next year. – Behind.
