Rediculous Resolutions

My New Years resolution for 2011 was to finish a sprint triathlon.  Well... let me tell you how that went.

I trained like a mad woman.  I was in the pool so often that one of the ladies mentioned it just last week.  I RAN.  I hate running... but I was running more than I ever had.  I was two weeks away from my triathlon and I got mono.  Not just mono... In-the-hospital mono. 

I was weak and lost most of my training... So I walked into the check-in and took my swag and left.  It was a sad day.  My friend brought me to Tasty Taco to make me feel better.  It helped.

This year, I'm hesitant to set any resolutions.  I usually resolve to make good decisions weekly, if not daily.  I haven't decided if I want to tackle a tri again... and I haven't recovered from my traumatic RAGBRAI experience quite yet.  And a whole year seems so daunting, if not easy to procrastinate.

So my resolutions for this year are monthly.  I will: 
-Try a new workout every month
-Give a little something every month
-Learn about something or someone new every month
-Pay off my debt (by paying a little each month.) 

I was in the best shape of my life last summer.  And I hope to mimic that this year with daily decisions to eat right and workout like I'm training for something.
