Hey there, hi there, ho there!!
So, um, did you realize that it’s October already?
I mean, I knew it was October but I didn’t really comprehend that it’s OCTOBER already.
There are only 82 days until Christmas, which also means that there are only 89 days until it’s 2015.
In the middle of my mild panic attack, I remembered that I had set some goals for this year.
Let’s see how I’m doing.
1. Get a BQ at the Flying Pig Marathon
Well, that didn’t happen. And, way back on January 16, I KNEW it wasn’t going to happen which is why I reevaluated my goal and edited it to breaking 4 hours.
Which didn’t happen either.
But, that’s okay. I had FUN and sometimes, that’s the most important part. 🙂
2. Run a 50k
Hmmm. The 50k is in 8 days and you know I’m not running it. 😦
BUT, I’m not letting it get me down and I’ve already started thinking about next year now that I’m out of that stupid boot!
The time IN the boot, as much as I hated it, was really good for me to evaluate who I am, as well as helping to heal my injury.
I’ll be back to running soon and I CAN. NOT. WAIT. #patiencegrasshopper
3. Upgrading my pantry, cutting out processed foods, and recipe development
Well, I think I’ve done pretty well with upgrading my pantry and cutting out processed foods.
I didn’t really eat too many to begin with but I’ve definitely been more conscious about what I buy at the grocery store.
As for recipe development, I think I’ve been doing pretty well!
Triple Chocolate Avocado Brownies
Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Brownie Cookies
Bacon Bourbon Blue Cheese Bison Burgers
Grilled Bacon Wrapped Salmon Fillets
Crockpot Tomatillo Salsa Chicken
Wow! I’ve been busy!!
And, there’s still 89 days left this year for me to come up with some more new stuff!
4. Have fun
I think I’ve aced this goal so far. 🙂
I went to my first FitBloggin‘ conference, got to hang out with my blogging buddy Lena, and met a whole bunch of awesome new people – including Arian Foster!!
We went to Colonial Williamsburg, I took Thing 2 to Busch Gardens, went to our first Navy Dining Out, my sailor got promoted to Master Chief!, we went hiking, I saw a bear, we went antiquing, got gussied up and rode a water taxi to the Navy Khaki Ball, etc, etc, etc.
Yeah, definitely hit the nail on the head with this goal. 🙂
So now, it’s time for me to start evaluating and thinking about goals for next year.
And, some short term goals for the rest of this year.
Like, finally trying my hand at some homemade barbecue sauce.
Or, power cleaning more than 95#.
Or improving my overhead squat.
And definitely – MOST definitely – having more fun. 🙂
Talk to me: Did you set goals for this year? How are you doing on them? Do you reevaluate your goals regularly or do you forget about them until faced with a new year?
