Last year, I did a recap of every month and how well I was meeting my goals. I’ve been less consistent this year, but plan to write recaps every few months. Here’s a review of my original goals:
Break a few more records:
- Marathon: sub- 3:40 on January 13 –> Done at the Houston Marathon
- Half Marathon: sub-1:39:xx —> Done at the Sugarland Half
- 10k: 43:xx –> Need to plan another race
- 5k: 19:xx —> Current goal for Saturday!
Stay injury free: maintaining 2-3 days of spinning and weights, and increasing my miles conservatively —So far so good
Become a certified running coach: Compare/contrast courses and sign up for a local course in the next 6 months —Took the course in January and already began coaching clients!
Experiment with the dietary theories I’m learning (raw, macrobiotic, superfoods, juicing, etc): spend 1-2 weeks per month on each theory —Experimenting with several, currently about to cut out gluten for a few weeks
Decrease my sugar to a small piece of dark chocolate daily (repeat goal from last year!) — Sugar Detox challenges have helped with this!
Decrease my refined carbs to one serving or less daily — Again, the sugar detox/processed food challenge helped here!
Write my Health Coach intentions, goals, and timeline for starting a coaching business–Done
Take on 3-4 clients before graduating in October– Have 2 currently, with 2 more to begin soon
Personal & Family Balance
Build in quiet time: just a few minutes a day to journal, pray, meditate or sit silently… Still need to work on this, but it’s better than 2012
Have set times for the computer: limit my blogging writing/reading and other computer time to early morning, L’s nap/school time and an hour or two after her bedtime — Feeling better about this- I realize I can’t do it all and I’m okay with it.
Read at least one book per month: — Lots of nutrition reads, if that counts.
Date nights: Once/month is our goal– Yep! Several date nights during our trip last week.
Make sure my family knows they are my first priority: daily hugs, words of affirmation, monthly notes of appreciation to my husband– I’ve made an effort to be more present with less multi-tasking, although I haven’t been doing the notes of affirmation for hubs
