January Goal Recap and February Goals!

January Recap:

1- Bootcamp — well I started and made it to the first two classes, then missed 3 for vacation, one for snow, one for my Team in Training kick-off and one for being sick. I got back into it on Saturday and am planning to make it for the remainder of them! I looooove bootcamp!

2 – Marathon — I attempted and didn’t succeed. I’m in the process of picking out my next marathon to attempt and have signed up for some physical therapy to figure out what’s going on with my hip and knee. See my marathon trip part two blog post for more info on what happened during the race.

3 – Push-ups — haven’t even tried this.

4 – Skier stomps — again, no attempt here. We did these on Sat and I feel like I’m doing better, but my goodness do they hurt!

5 – Fitness/Health plan — still working on this one. Life kind of got in the way, but its on my radar as something to get sorted out!

6 – Finances — umm..yeah. Need to do better with this. Again, life got in the way.

7 – House fix-up. We are working on this slowly and steadily. I sorted out my closet and have a large pile (several bags actually) for good-will. I also sorted all my old magazines. I still have a TON to do to get the house ready for sale, but I’m working on it.

8 -Work – apparently going on vacation is good for  business. I’ve been super busy at work and we had our best month ever for gross income.

9 – Relax – Life kind of forced me into this with a nasty cold!

10 – Food – we’re working on this one too!

I cannot believe how fast January flew by! We had New Year’s and then a rush to get ready and head off for our vacation in Florida! Before we knew it we were back home (missed our Oscar Winkerbean — dog — terribly!). Then it was a big project at working and getting everything sorted out there from being away. By Wed of our first week back I started coughing and then lost my voice. Headed to the Dr. to get my hip/knee checked (nothing broken, nothing torn, PT it is…). The cough turned into a cold and a week of DH working REALLY late getting ready for the state budget stuff. And then it was February. What?! How’d that happen???

February Goals: I’m gonna keep it simple and cut back to five for this month.

1 – House – tackle one big house project each weekend.

2 – Food – More homemade, less processed (duh…I’m always trying!)

3 – Finances – Cut back on spending (seriously) and try to bank some extra buck this month.

4 – Physical Health – Finish up boot camp and keep up with training for my TNT event this spring (10k).

5 – Mental Health – More book/magazine reading. I like to read before I fall asleep and I want to get back into this habit. It helps me relax and sleep better.


Welp! That’s it for me for now… stay tuned for more on my marathon trip and some other fun goodies I have planned!
