Well, it’s been about a week, and some major items have happened on the goals front. From my one year goals, I have added a new column: Where I’m At. You don’t know how long it takes to get somewhere, unless you know where you’re starting.
1 Year / January 2022
|Category||Goal||Where I’m At|
|Career||Credit Union. Principal Software Dev. Knowing what I’m trying to do, and who I’m helping. XXK a year? *||About 96% of goal.|
|Blog, 200 Followers||21|
|Home||Condo: Owe $236K on it. Kitchen remodel completed.||Refi complete.|
|Health||Weight 230-235, 20% body fat? Maybe down to 2 blood pressure pills? Check if this is possible?||253lbs. (I wear it well? Ugh.)|
|5x a week Xfit + occasional weightlifting, running for 4-5 miles weekly / biking for 15+ miles biweekly.||5x Xfit. Weightlifting on Sundays. Biking for 10 miles every 2 weeks but only recently.|
|< Redacted > *||Eh, need a Dr. visit here.|
|Travel||Walla Walla for a wine visit, Long Beach a few times.||–|
|Finance||Retirement accounts funded to legal maximum||401K 85%. IRA, about 75% way.|
|Investing $250 per month||$75|
|Full 2 months ahead in YNAB.||About 1.25 so far.|
|Family||Happy + Healthy. Zoe should be driving (Sasha, most of the time.)||Generally, everyone’s good.|
|Personal||Guitar Lessons||Udemy courses purchased.|
|Stuff||New PC, Downstairs wine fridge||New PC achieved!|
|New Traeger||Spec’d out!|
The big thing so far is the new PC. That had been on my list for quite a while, and I was 90% of the way there when I had made the list up, but I wanted a quick win.
Funnily enough, one of the best features of adding this column is finding out the stuff I DON’T know. I don’t know my current percent body fat. Last I had it checked (near the beginning of the year), it was 23.9%. I’ll have to get another test on the books.
The weight will be the biggest test. Trying to drop 20 lbs while maintaining and upgrading the muscle mass is going to be a big challenge. Fortunately, I have about 15 months to do it.
Unfortunately, I did break the streak. On 9/7, I took the dogs to the park first thing in the morning, and completely forgot about my hand release push ups. Streak ended up at 48 days.
Oh well. I’ve got the streak back to 6 days, and I’m doing 3×18 now, so very much passing the 50 push ups a day milestone!
