2015 Goals

Well long time no blog. I thought the new year was a good time to start out blogging again.

I’ve got a few goals for the New Year and a game plan for how I’m going to accomplish some of those.

1. Lose Weight: I plan on tracking everything I eat. Even if I go over in pointsplus I just need to track.

2. Save Money: I think losing weight will go into this. I will limit my eating out on weeknights to one night per week for dinner and one lunch meal. Weekends I will play by ear. I will eat in one weekend meal each weekend.

3. Getting my running mojo back: I’ve been in a bit of a running funk lately. I will just start running again and sign up for either a spring or fall race that I am excited about. Probably the half marathon distance.

4. Train for Goofy 2016: I deferred by Goofy 2015 registration due to lack of training. This year I will train and stick to it.

5. Read 52 Books: I plan on reading a book a week. I will shut off the television and read before bed.

6. Watch the Best Picture Nominees: I want to watch all of the Oscar’s Best Picture nominees. I’ve watched 4 out of the 10 nominees for the best picture categories for the Golden Globes with dates set to see 2 more so I think this one will be doable.

I’m planning on doing monthly goals to help me stick with these resolutions!

Any tips for me? What goals do you have for 2015?

New Recipes and Rewards

Well my October goals are going okay. I’ll probably reuse the goals for next month though because they have not been super stellar.

With Becky’s help, I also made some rewards for my weight loss goals! I am excited about these.

150–Amazon gift card for books/fun purchases NOT necessities. 
145-A nice purse (which one is to be determined)
140–iTunes gift card for some music
135–A SparkleSkirt (I love these for running) http://sparkleskirts.com/
130–Nice pair of shoes (nice-ish maybe boots)
125–GOAL so something bigish. Maybe a trip. 

Becky suggested a trip to a race for my goal and I love that. I’m thinking making the Disney Princess half in 2015.

I made this recipe today and it is awesome. Make it right now.

October Goals

well hello!

After emailing with Becky, I’ve decided to start blogging again. No promises with how often, but I wanted to start the month (ish) with monthly goals. This is going to be a crazy month at work, so I think to stay on track I will need goals.

 

I haven’t lost any of the weight I’ve gained from grad school yet (well I lost some and then gained it back again) but I am kind of ready to recommit. Oh and I got a full-time job and moved to Tulsa. Lots of life changes. 

 

Track Everything even if I’m -600 for the week freaking track
 
Limit Eating Out twice a week for lunch and three times a week for dinner. Maybe even less. This includes weekends but excludes my trip to St. Louis on Oct. 12th. Haha. This will help with WL goals and budgeting goals
 
Stick to my running plan I’m running a full marathon in November so I need to stick to my training plan.
 
Bootcamp 3 times a week I’ve been going to a women’s only bootcamp gym in Tulsa, and I love it. I plan on going 3 times a week this month.
 
Send in my materials for grad school and schedule my return to take my exams seriously it’s time.
 
Those are it for now!! I’ve been doing okay with them thus far. I think it will help to reference them.

Disney Marathon

Disney Marathon

So I did it! I finished the Disney Marathon.

It is my slowest time by far, but it was hot and I’m proud I finished.

Oh and I ran it with Traveling Tj.

2013 Goals

Happy 2013 everyone! I like sticking with the goals I made on my birthday, but I did want to add some overarching goals for 2013.  I’ll also post monthly goals to help me stay committed to my overall goals.

Fitness Goals

  • Run 13 races in 2013. I’m doing Jill’s 13 in 13 challenge, and I’ve already signed up for 7 races just before July.  
  • Finish my next full marathon.  Coming up on Jan. 13th
  • Run 700 miles.  
  • PR in one race
  • Regular strength training program

Lifestyle Goals

  • Get to goal weight.  I know I can do this this year
  • Cook more.  My cooking lately has been pathetic.
  • Read 50 books.  20 of them non-fiction.  
  • Clean regularly (and not just in a panic before visitors).

Finally

Finish my master’s degree!
