On the 2nd of May 2012, I set myself some targets. I stumbled on them today, and figured I would see where I was at the moment.

Here is 11 things I really want to do, be able to say, by the 12 month:

1. I reached my target weight – 89.9 kg’s.
This is the big goal, this is what I am here for, this is what I will do.

Well, this is the big one, I am getting there, but I am not near there yet. I would still love to be able to say this before the 12th month!

2. I have quit smoking – for good – for ever.
I have tried many a time, I have read about people quitting when they start to exercise as you really don’t feel like it – I hope I will be one of those people.

Getting there...

3. I can run a half marathon.
I never was much of a runner, I was a good cyclist and swimmer – this is something I figure I could do – I have 6 months to get there. Tomorrow will be an early morning!

Nowhere close, but, I will do this before the 12th month.

4. Get my waist below 100cm.
I’m currently at 132cm, it should be 94cm, if I am below 100, I would be happy!

I have not measured my waist in a while, I know I am not at 132 anymore, but I know I am not below 100 either.

5. Get rid of most of my pills.
I drink a wide array of pills, for all kinds of stuff, losing weight and quitting smoking should get me of a few. – More on this later.

This one I am proud to say I am very close to achieving.

6. Never diet – ever.
I don’t want to loose weight, and put it on again, I want to keep it off, lifestyle change – not fad diet change.

I am getting this one right. I am going low carb, and it's a lifestyle, not a diet.

7. Be committed
To keep loosing weight, keep running/swimming/cycling/going to gym.

I am more committed than ever. Winning

8. Get positive.
I can be depressed – sometimes. I am no fun then, I don’t need that.

I have heaps of stuff to sort out, but I am more committed than ever.

9. Appreciate my wife, more
I love her to death, she does a whole lot of shit I take for granted.

I am loosing this battle, and need to appreciate her about 6 times as much as stated in May last year!

10. Enjoy work
I spend half my life there – it should be more fun.

Work is a billion times better than May last year, it's going good, I am enjoying it.

11. Be exited about getting up.
Not everyday, just a whole lot more days.

Yep, this one I can tick off, I still hate getting up early to get in the gym, but once I am there, it's all worth it.

I am hoping that by December I can say I have done everything I have set my mind to, lost the weight I wanted to loose, and be the happy guy I deserve to be.
