I'll go ahead and put by challenge goal on here. May as well "officially" join the party. My first goal is to lose 30-35ish lbs (it's gonna depend on how I look and clothes fit at 125, I may keep going to 120). I don't really have a time frame for this, since I'm going to be on various drug cocktails while trying to sort out this whole RA thing, and some of them will cause my weight to fluctuate. But I definitely don't want to get over 160 (which I *NEVER* thought I would even have to worry about), and I'm pretty darn close to that right now. My second goal is to get up to a half marathon distance with a 12 min/mile pace, preferably by the end of 2014. I've signed up for the Expedition Everest Challenge in May 2014, so I have a concrete goal to work towards now. Of course, this will depend on how my joints hold up, so it's flexible, too. One of the biggest things I've learned from friends with chronic pain is to keep goals reasonable and be open to changing them as needed. It's one thing to push yourself to get better, but you don't want to push yourself over the edge.
