Nutrition Goals 2006.OK, before the year really gets going it's time to define a few nutritional goals for 2006. The main ones are : Increase bodyweight to 100kg (currently 84kg). I realize this might be unrealistic for 12 months; especially if the bulk of the extra weight comes in the form of muscle. Finally get rid of this annoying cough I've had off and on for about 8 months. It isn't painful, regular or accompanied by any obvious illness; it's just annoying. Further reduce the amount of time I spend in the kitchen. As much as I love to cook, there just aren't enough hours in the day to spend a lot of time preparing each meal.


Of course, if you enjoyed these, I'd highly recommend grabbing the Strength & Fitness Newsletter. Delivered weekly, and absolutely free.

(there's also a Daily Update, if you're looking for an even larger dose of training-related goodness.)

NB : If you'd like to write a guest post for Straight to the Bar - I love hearing how other people are training - get in touch. If you've got a fitness competition or seminar coming up, add it to the calendar.

Look forward to hearing from you.
