2019 Goals - Moving Forward on My Journey


2019 Goals – Moving Forward on My Journey

2018 is now behind us, and looking back was a good way to see how far I’ve come. Now it’s time to look forward to where I want to go and what I want to achieve by this time next year.

Normally a new year signals a lot of anxiety for myself, I’m not exactly sure why. Maybe it’s the repetitiveness of it all, or perhaps I just felt apprehensive about the changes the new year will bring. This year, however, feels different.  No anxiety, just excitement for what’s to come.


Reaching My Weight Goal

I’m really hoping that this year I will reach my weight goal of 99kgs. It’s been a long journey so far and with only 31kgs to go it is definitely achievable as long as my body cooperates. It’s less than a kilogram a week which is healthy.

Run 10km

This is my next running goal. I can comfortably complete a 6km run and I’m hoping to knock this goal off in February. I’m registered for the 10km Busselton Run as part of the Busselton Half-Marathon. You can follow my running journey on Strava.

Beneath the Surface

Beneath the Surface is my business which I founded in the second half of 2018. This goal is simple, do what I love and make money doing.  I want my business to become successful and spread my message of change to those who want to listen.

Expand Our Family

With the fertility issues somewhat sorted, this year Kristine and I will be hoping to expand our little family. We have tentatively timed to start in the second half of 2019 and see how it goes. It might take us a while given my circumstances but we’re not going to put too much pressure on ourselves. Our mentality is if it happens great, if it doesn’t then we will look at other avenues. The good thing is it’s achievable.

Dead-lifting 200kgs

This goal is more superficial than the others. This one is a lot easier to say than it is to accomplish. I want to be able to lift my old weight, I want to truly own those numbers in a completely different way. At the time of writing I am able to lift 170kgs comfortably for at least 1 rep.

I’m sure there’s other goals I want to achieve, and I will no doubt mention them if future posts. However, here’s to the start of the rest of our journeys!
