New Year's Resolutions

I know this is a week and a half late, but I've actually been sticking to this so far.

I have several resolutions I want to hit in 2014, and historically, my best efforts have been ones that have been publicly documented.  That said, you can expect to see the odd resolution based post in addition to hobby related ones.

So, here they are...

1. Get under 200 lbs.  I'm currently at 230.8.  I have to lose an average of 0.6 lbs per week, which should be fairly easy to do with some basic behavioral changes like eating smaller portions and bringing my lunch to work everyday.

2. Walk a marathon.  I've got a training plan in place for this and have completed the first of 24 weeks of training.  Again, very achievable if I just stick to this.  For some background, a year ago I couldn't walk 3 miles without my knees aching.  A marathon is 26.2 miles.

3. Complete 1500 points of 40k Dread Mob Orks and 1500 points of Fantasy High Elves.  This is gonna be the tough one.  I think the first priority is to evaluate what I have now and then build lists for each army.  I have most of what I will need for the High Elves, and a lot of it is even primed and ready to be painted.  The Dread Mob list is going to require at a minimum some Killa Kans and Deff Dreads, with a Mecha-Dread and Grot Tanks as high probabilities.

Last year I wanted to learn 3D design and walk 500 miles.  I learned the 3D design, but I only walked about 400 miles.  This marathon training, which will be complete in mid June is over 500 miles by itself, so I should be able to retroactively knock this one out of the park.
