- I'll gain 8kg (that's ~ 18lbs) by eating and training more than ever.


- I'll finish my master's thesis.


- I'll spend a lot of time with my GF.


- I'll sleep more.


- I'll try to reduce the CO2 emissions of my consuming even more than before and offset the rest.


- I'll convert at least 1 non-vegan.


- I'll do better flares (that's a bboy move) than before.


- I'll run for the city council in Turku and get elected (or at least I'll get loads of votes).

Goal number 1:

Fit into the smallest pants that I own.

I wore these pants over 20 years ago and still have them.

A "like new" pair of Levi 501s

I haven't been able to fit into them for about 20 years.


Goal number 2:

Put on muscle while still being able to fit into the above pants.


Barbell Bench Press 315 pounds at least once.

Squat: 20 reps of 200 pounds by the end of Feb.

Deadlift: Not sure where I'm at with this, so I'll just say 400 pounds.

Be able to do multiple pullups, I can't do any right now.

Learn how to cook for myself


Start running so I can sign up for all those 5K charity races


Get all A's in my classes (this extends beyond 2008, but one day at a time, right?)


Find my passion


Become more social and outgoing


Volunteer more


Take a class and learn something new (right now sailing and yoga are high on the list)


There's probably more but I don't want to scare myself so I'll stick with these for now...

None and many .... have lot's of plans. But don't believe in magic start dates. So just continue to set, meet, exceed goals and repeat

I'm the same way, but I did recently set some new goals, and it does just happen to be the new year, so I'll give it a go...


1. Squat 315 for reps. On the one hand I'm like "oh that's impossibly heavy", but on the other hand, that's only adding 7.5lbs a month....


2. Eat more vegetables. I've been eating a lot more whole foods since I've been coming to this board. Seeing other people eat really healthy inspires me to do the same.
