I have begun to realize that short and long term goals are very important, especially to those of us of the Clyde/Athena persuasion. I am currently working on a set of goals for calendar year 2009, both on and off the scale. I'm working on a complete set, because for me personally, long term goals can only be achieved by reaching a series of milestones to keep me on the path.
If you've got goals for 2009, I hope you'll take the time to record them here. I personally need detailed, specific goals, but whether yours are as simply defined as "I am going to lose weight" or as detailed as "I'm riding a century each month, plus 100 additional miles", please think of this as a place to put them in writing for yourself and to inspire others.
Mine will be up sometime today, in this very thread.
