Welcome, 2018.

While mostly, "Bah, humbug!" through Thanksgiving and Christmas, a certain energy is bubbling within for 2018. It feels similar to the first stirrings of sprint as the weather changes. God knows THAT isn't happening here yet, though, that's for sure!

The past few weeks, with its pondering of what came to pass in 2017, and the desire to scratch down some quantifiable goals led to some introspection and decision. Some friends were instrumental in helping to hone these... huge thanks! 

And what are goals for a new year without the public pronouncement!? 

Physical

— Complete at least 9 cycles of my lifting program. (Four core lifts using a 5/3/1 program on a four week cycle which includes a reload week.)

— This one is rather arbitrary, but I like it: increase each lift to the mid-intermediate level for my current weight according to LiftCalculator. This means: 

Deadlift: at least 225 lb

Overhead Press: at least 92 lb

Low back squat: at least 188 lb

Bench press: at least 120 lb

Considering what I did in less than half of 2017, and what I see other women doing... this is very reasonable IF the consistency is applied. 

— Continue to lose body fat. Saying "I want to lose X lbs" is really hard when you're doing both. But I'd love to see the scale 40 lb lower in 2018. Again, doable amidst all the rest if proper consistency is applied.
