Blog at least 3 times a week- so I need a minimum of 14 blog posts including January 31st Actual number of posts:
PROPERLY train for and run a half, full and ultra marathon- half marathon training is up first, the minimum number of miles I need have run this month to keep up good training is- 60 miles Actual number of miles: 12, I am not made about this, leaving town and dealing with my brothers death this month has taken everything I have so I am just happy I have gotten out and moved once a week. Now the goal is to make it at least twice a week and so on and so forth.
Revamp my diet and STICK TO IT!!!! –
Breakfast-juice and muffin or toast and coffee (most mornings I had oatmeal, which I consider healthy)
Midmorning snack- Slimfast or smoothie (slimfast or cheese and crackers)
Lunch- Soup or salad (not quite as much but most of the time it was soup or something homemade)
Dinner- Anything I want as long as it is make at home
After dinner- tea or hot chocolate
Did you stick to this? Overall I stuck to this about half the time, having to leave town for almost 2 weeks to deal with my brothers death certainly derailed this.
Get A’s in all my classes this year- Keep a running tally of my % in my class(es) Current %: 84.83, again I missed the entire first week of class so I am pretty happy with an 84 especially since A&P is a difficult class.
Drop two clothing sizes, go from a 10 to a 6 –Stick with the aforementioned meal plan and marathon training and I should be golden. How is this going? Yea right lol
Stop overspending!!!! – I am not keeping any forms of payment on me at work so that I cannot pop next door to the little market whenever the desire strikes and I only get to eat out once this month so I better choose well. Money saved: $100. I got $100 in my savings and didn’t take it out but I did go on a little spending spree after getting back from Reno and having to face real life again.
Take a few minutes every day to sit in quiet reflection, meditate, and do something spiritual –I have a 5 line a day little diary and a 366 day devotional I am starting to use. Out of 31 days I managed how many days: 12, I packed my little diary and took it to Reno with me then never unpacked it when I got home, I really need to do that.
Continue to work on and grow my relationship with Brandon – we need to get out and do something every week, we currently have Thursday evening through Sunday morning together and I don’t want us to just sit on the couch the whole weekend so my goal is at least one outing a weekend (they just need to be free outings lol)
Our 4 weekend outings:
I was out of town the first 2 weekends
Went for a trail run then hit the Tillamook cheese factory
Went out to his grandparents house
Read 1 non-school book a month- I already met that goal this month so let’s see if I can squeeze in a second one before school starts.
Books read this month: The quarter-acre farm
All in all I didn’t hit most of my goals but considering the circumstances I am ok with this. I got up everyday and kept going, I did the things I needed to do and managed to not completely tank everything. Go me!
