Over the many years of blogging and tracking my annual goals, I have found it to be most productive when I review them each month. This allows for me to see the progress I have made and also to remind myself of goals that I may have forgotten about.
Run more miles than 2017
I was off to a great start this January, especially with a half marathon thrown in, but then I got hit with a cold/cough/sinus thing that I am still trying to get over. (I slept on the couch last night so I could sleep sitting up. It’s fun.) However, in 2017 I ran 22 miles in January and this year I’ve run 46.
Pay off all debt. (starting amount: 6,176.09) current amount: $6,153
Very little progress was made. Embarrassing really. I only paid off $23 dollars of debt in January. While I am disappointed. Here are the upsides : I spent the first 5 days of January in Europe, I spent 3 nights in San Diego, and I paid my property taxes on time. So no, I didn’t pay off any debt. BUT I didn’t dig my hole any deeper. I am excited to make real progress on this now that life as settled down some.
Read 52 Books
I am attacking this goal head on, I signed up for a library card &have been keeping notes of interesting books that others have read ready to go. I have read 4 books so far.
- Half of a Yellow Sun – Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie
- Don’t Tell Me You’re Afraid – Giuseppe Catozzella
- Everything All At Once- Bill Nye
- This Is Where You Belong (the art & science of loving where you live)- Melody Warnick
Volunteer 100 Hours
No volunteering has happened just yet, but I have signed up to be an assistant coach for girls on the run and will be looking forward to the season starting in just a few weeks.
Successfully boulder a V3 (at my gym movement)
I met up with an Albany internet friend at movement last week and struggled up some VBs. It was near the peak of my plague, so some of my lack of skills may have been related to that.
Wear my hair other than a ponytail once a week.
twice in january I styled my hair! Not quite the 4-5 I should be at, but its a start. You know the saying, Rome…..
