Wow! All of you who reported being morning workout warriors in yesterday’s writing prompt really inspire me!! I cannot get up early (maybe I should stop staying up late to draft blog posts …). Nah!
So today is day 3 of the August Healthy Living / Fitness Blogger Writing Challenge, and today we’re sharing where we’d like to be in 10 years from now:
10 years … A decade … It seems so far away, yet when I look back on my life, 10 years doesn’t really seem that long ago. I mean, my hubby and I bought our first house 10 years ago (which would have meant we’d be almost half way to owning it had we not decided to upgrade to a slightly larger house 5 years ago), and we got married just over 8 years ago, but I digress ….
I ‘m currently *gulp* 37 years old and have a 7 yr old, a 5 yr old and a 1 yr old (all girls). I ‘m also at the second Ã…”level Ã‚Â if you like, of my career path. There are 3 more levels for me to reach the Ã…”top Ã‚Â (aka Director).
So where do I see myself in 10 yrs from now?
I ‘ll be 47 with *gulp* a 17 yr old, 15 yr old, and an 11 yr old (holy crap!). I suspect that my life will be drastically different. For example: I ‘ll be able to go out to train/run/cycle/swim etc without having to make sure another responsible adult is home to watch the kids. However, juggling my training will be way different because I ‘m sure my training will need to be fit in amongst the chauffeuring I ‘ll be doing to get the girls to their jobs, sports, DATES (eeeek!) etc.
I think that I may currently be near that age where I ‘m hitting the top of my physical capabilities in terms of strength and endurance building. Which means I may have already set my absolute personal best race times? Eeeeek! That said, there is no way I ‘m letting up on my training just because I may have already Ã…”peaked Ã‚Â ” I ‘m going to keep on training to be the best me I can be!
In 10 years from now I’d like to:
- Be healthy, strong, still active and training for races ” tri’s, half marathons etc ” I don’t see myself changing that.
- Reach at least the next level in my career path ” I’d love to move up to a Sr. position or become a Manager. I don’t really know if I have a desire to go higher than that. That said, I’ve been contemplating leaving my career field and returning to the fitness industry where I originally started out. I ‘m really on the fence on that as my current job (that I love) is secure, rewarding, pays fairly well and has pretty good benefits ” so why would I leave? Decisions… decisions …
- Very involved in my daughters’ sports ” maybe even coaching?
- Over ½ way towards owning our home!
Where would you like to be in 10 years from now?
