2014 New Year's Resolutions

It's been way too long since I wrote a post... A lot has happened since my last post including another trip to clinic that showed my lung function staying at about the same as in August. After wasting so much time being frustrated about the lack of improvement in my lung function, I have decided not to focus on that aspect of my health nearly as much this year. Last year, and in other years past, I have set a goal for my lung function to reach. This year, I'm going to focus on setting goals that can help my lung function improve but that are completely in my control. I can't necessarily control what my lung function does, so it's not something I should be basing my goals on.

That being said, here's a list of my health related New Year's Resolutions:

  1. 100% compliant with treatments in 2014
  2. Train for a 5K
  3. Continue with my weight training
  4. Workout 3-5 days a week
Some of those should be a given, but they are all things I have tried and struggled with in the past. It's time for me to step it up though, and make them all happen. I want to do everything in my power to stay away from hospital stays and picc lines! I'm hoping the health goals will help. 

Here's to a new year and a newer, healthier me!

Happy New Year!


  1. I love your goals because they are all within your power. I often set PFT goals as well, but like you said they are absolutely not in our control which is something I learned the hard way this past year. Good luck with your 2014 goals!

    1. I'm right there with you! I tend to set goals for my lung function, but I get disappointed more times than I care to admit. So, I'm trying this for 2014 to see if I am more successful. :)
