January Goals

And then it was 2015! It seems really weird to say. Especially when I think back to 2000, when I said that I was "officially old." I wonder what that makes me now?

Motivated, that's what! At the start of 2015 I feel very, very motivated. Time to make a list of monthly goals. But first, let's look back at December.

DECEMBER GOALS: 

1) Back on track for marathon training: I'm gonna call this a success. Even though my running continues to be sporadic. And Hal Higdon would be berating me, perhaps even beating me with a stick. I certainly won't be setting any time records. But I feel pretty confident in my ability to complete a 26.2 mile run in Feb. Maybe all the previous hiking has established a baseline level of fitness that will allow me to these things on a whim. Or maybe its just a change in mindset when I think "Oh, its only 18 miles. I can do that." Whatever. I'm slow. But I can go forever.

2) Get Xmas cards sent out before I move: check!

3) Complete FMA certification: Last minute and just under the wire, but I finished that bad boy!

4) Complete licensure renewals: done!

5) 30 days of Dailey Method Workout: fail. I underestimated the time constraints of moving. But I do like the workouts and I'll definitely be incorporating into fitness in the future.

6) Holiday Lights 5K with the family: success. What is better than watching a tree lighting ceremony and running 3 miles behind Santa Claus?

7) Downsize the storage unit: success. Little by little, I'm paring down. Soon, I'll   be able to adopt the title of minimalist. But not quite yet.

8) Hike in the mountains: Fail. Moved to NC, first weekend I spent exploring the town and finishing Xmas shopping, and then I flew home for Xmas. I had briefly considered camping on NYE, but by the time I got out of work, I'd have been driving and setting up camp in the dark. January, then.

9) Girl's Nite with S and J: success.

10) Begin the photo book: Big fat fail.

Not bad.

JANUARY GOALS: 

1) Do the Whole 30: Basically a 30 day challenge of no processed food. I'm jumping in.

2) Long Hike in the Mountains: 2014 is gone, but the mountains are still there.

3) Try out 5 new recipes: going hand in hand with #1. The official Whole 30 site tends to be a bit meat heavy for my tastes, but recipes are meant to be tinkered with, I say! I'll have to, anyway. I have limited kitchen facilities.

4) Increase that running consistency with 3-4 per week. I know, a ridiculous statement 6 weeks before a marathon. But I'm a ridiculous gal.

5) Plan a weekend with my hiker trash friends!

6) Read (and get rid of) 5 books: Moving toward minimalist!

7) Really get that photo book started: I rarely let the sheer magnitude of physical challenges stop me. And yet I did with a photo book.

8) Begin hard core planning for this year's distance hike

9) Journal daily

10) Blog more consistently!   

Crashing out of the gate, y'all!

You moved to NC? I'm guessing Winston-Salem? Outstanding. You are so close to the mountains now it should be easy to get out there for that hike. I'm going to Boone as soon as I can get there.
