What I Learned In 2012 and Fitness Goals For The New Year

A few things I've learned this year:

*Carbs are not the enemy.
*Being injured sucks, but it's not the end of the world. Focus on what you CAN do, not what you can't!
*I hate bodybuilding style workouts.
*CrossFit is fun...but I don't miss it, and it's not the only way to be in shape.
*Perfection is my enemy.
*No matter how long you've been training, you can always get stronger and better!
*Don't worry about what everyone else is doing, and just do you!
*Feeling good is more important to me than feeling miserable just to be ripped.
*Abs are overrated. ;)


Goals I accomplished in 2012:

*Strict muscle up on rings:

*13 pullups
*Bodyweight back squat(125) for 30 reps(that sucked!):

*195lb glute bridge for 6 reps

I don't really have many specific goals for this year, but there are a few things I want to focus on.

Goals for 2013:

*Learn how to do a turkish get up
*Get my strength back up on deadlifts-I will get that 250lb deadlift this year!
*Get better at handstand walking
*Make this booty grow! :)
*Continue trying to eat more veggies and...maybe try to get more creative with my cooking!
*Learn to do cool bodyweight stuff, like the human flag and front levers

  1. Ugh, turkish get-ups are my least fav, but they do work! I love your deadlift goal! Right now, I'm at 115, but I hope to be at 200 by the end of the year!

    1. That's a great goal! For some reason, deadlifts are my weakest lift. I guess because I've been doing them the least amount of time. I gotta get workin on the turkish get ups, I'm sure I'll hate them, too!

  2. Ha, I also realised how much I hate bodybuilding style workouts! Too long and boring!

    I can't believe you squatted your BW for 30 reps!!! That's impressive. Well, all of your accomplishments this year have been impressive, who am I kidding! Doing a human flag would be amazing. I can't even imagine reaching a stage where I could do that.
