April 2011 Goals

OMG, you guys! I haven’t even looked at the March goals since, well, March 1. I am a little scared to see the level of fail that will be in them.

Let’s look, though, shall we?

March 2011 Goals

  1. Lose 3-4 lbs (This will be a goal every month until I reach my eventual goal of 20 lbs total) – well, I’ll be honest. FAIL. But nothing gained. Perhaps my crappy diet & (lack of) exercise plan are to blame?
  2. Run my first race in 11 months (ZOMG!) in under 30 minutes. – FAIL! I did run my first race, but it was 32:45…booo!
  3. Weights/Yoga/Swim/Bike – 16x this month (with my 15 planned runs, that should be an average of a work/day) – FAIL!  ha ha ha ha ha…seriously. 3x. Two yoga classes & one bike. PATHETIC! What did I do on my week off?
  4. Get early stuff planted & the initial long-term site plan startedhalf SUCCESS! The garden has been cleared (mostly) and is ready to plant. The long-term site plan is underway, as is the final plan for this year’s growing bits.
  5. Make bacon.  – Finally! SUCCESS! The bacon is made & is nearly ready to go to the smoker that I’m planning on using at my neighbors’ house!
  6. Finish guest room fancifying – FAIL! Really? I couldn’t even buy new sheets on my week off? WTF?
  7. Upstairs storage solutions DONE – FAIL! I don’t even know? It’s not like I even finally finished Dragon Age (my personal prerequisite before purchasing Dragon Age II). Can you say LAZY?
  8. Make cheese – I am going to re-try the cheddar & make some queso blanco. And, if I feel fancy, I want to try feta.Due to the combination of 1) no dairy & 2) extreme laze, I only made chevre (which isn’t cow dairy, so in my mind it doesn’t count). But still, SUCCESS!
  9. Meditate 20 days for a MINIMUM of 10 minutes per day. – FAIL! ha ha ha – I meditated on three days. That’s an average of two minutes a day. None of those days were during my vacation.
  10. Get my awesome new prints framed & hung in the kitchen – FAIL! damn! Talk about month of fail! I wish I’d including making mustard in my goal list – I did get that done. Or perhaps I should’ve included “starting the dishwasher,” ’cause I did that once, too. Hopefully, April will be a wee bit better.

March 30 day challenge

I will take one picture every day & upload it to my Flickr site. Feel free to ignore the pope placeholder pic. Unless you don’t want to.

I did pretty good with this – not perfect, though. I took pics on 20 of 31 days. I’m actually going to repeat this goal for April, until I get it down!

March Training in Review

I completed the C25K, and logged a total of 21.85 miles of running – down from last month, but no walking this month! Also, I did my 5K, so that’s cool.

I biked once (pathetic) for a total of 6.69 miles

I swam not even once. BUT it’s on in April, with the OWS season & tri training starting!

I attended 2 yoga classes, lifted weights never, and pretty much lazed around. I did hoe for a couple of hours doing garden prep, and that was a killer workout.

Total hours – 6.5. That actually used to be a lowish weekly total. I am ashamed.

BUT – let’s think positive. Looking forward, not back…

April 2011 Goals

  1. Lose 3-4 lbs (This will be a goal every month until I reach my eventual goal of 20 lbs total – 4 down, 16 to go!)

  3. Make first steps towards Audubon site certification

    Sometimes during time off you need just that, time off. Great goals coming up. What’s with all the secret goals :)?

      Not necessarily secret per se, just in the way that I don’t want to talk about it on the blog. Next time we hang out, I will totally tell you about the graphic designer for the secret project. 🙂
