Goal Progress

Thursday, January 31, 2013

Wow - I can't believe we are already one full month into 2013!! I wanted to take a moment to review my goals for the year and check my progress.

1) Reach my goal of 125lbs by March 1
**Working on it, not sure if my body will get to this number, but I'm working on it!
2) Run a 15k on March 3
**Registered and training!
3) Run a half marathon (Date TBD)
**Waiting until after 15k to commit
4) Incorporate random acts of kindness into my life on a regular basis
**Need to work a little harder on this!
5) Pay off credit card by July 1 emoticon
**Scott worked enough over time this month that we were able to pay this off already!
6) Read more
**Already read more books than last year - 2 complete, working on my 3rd
7) Commit to tidying up 1 room each evening to mantain a clean home
**Not quite there for this one - went on a big organizing mission, and still need to work on getting everything perfect!
8) QUIT SMOKING - once and for all!!!!
**Working on it still.... not doing as great as I could be, but I am smoking less and that's a start!

I have been on a roll these last 2 weeks, and I am really hoping to keep the consistancy going! I am trying very hard to stay on track with my eating. I know that weekends are bad for me, but if I can stay perfect during the week again I think I will start seeing a difference. I really want to get into my goal pants within the next few months. They fit, they button up, they are just too tight to be comfortable sitting in all day. I really hope that by race day I can comfortably fit in them, but that is very high hopes.

How has everyone else done in this first month of the year? Are goals on track if you made them? Or is there a lot of ground to be made up?

    Great job on your goals, getting debt paid off is huge! You are well on your way to meeting the goals you've set for yourself. I'm excited to see what February holds.
    Have an awesome weekend!

    Great goals. I hate cleaning but me and the hubs are trying to clean a little every night in hopes that we don't have such a pig sty all the time (it's really not that bad but sometimes it does get overwhelming) If you need any book recommnedations I read ALOT, so hit me up.

    You are doing a great job so far. I know those pants will be slippin' on with ease.

    I'm also trying to read more and get more cleaning done during the week. I want more time on the weekends to just up and go, not have anxiety that I have to clean my house and never spontaneously invite people over.

    Wow! Awesome on the credit card! Your other goals sound like they are coming along nicely too! Love how organized you are. That can really help to accomplish goals! Keep going girl! You've got it!!! emoticon

    WOOOHOOO on getting the card paid off already!

    One less cigarette is one less cigarette, and all it takes is a bunch of missed cigarettes to make a huge difference in your health. You can do it!

    I can count the number of cigarettes I have smoked since July on one hand. Never thought it possible. You can get there, too!
