January 2013 Goals

First off, I just have to say: Thanks  be to all that’s holy that 2012 is almost over. Seriously. Less than 24 hours.

I am writing this a couple of days early, as I am in Bend right now, but let’s just go ahead and assume the last 3 days of 2012 passed with little to no drama. knock on wood, fingers crossed, and any other good luck superstitions I can think of.

And now – let’s review the last month of last year:

December 2012 Goals

  1. Finish all holiday shopping & mailing by 12/14. – ehhh…mostly success. I’ll call it good.
  2. Get holiday card photo taken, printed & mailed, also by 12/14 – ha ha ha. Fail. Maybe a New Year’s card.
  3. Do not overdo it. December is busy. Busy can be bad. It’s okay to be a hermit from time to time. – pretty good. I both was social and was anti-social, so overall win.
  4. Empty to-do folder at work. – mostly success; good enough
  5. Childproof the kitchen (the living room is done!) – probably not good enough, but the Bean is still alive.

December 2012 Training Goals

Exercise this month was crap. I did great the first week, and then after y 10 mile run, everything hurt so badly that even swimming sucked. And then – I got busy, and stressed, and lazy.

  1. Finish half marathon (and be okay with the likely PW) – I did not even start. :*( It was the right decision, but it saddened me.
  2. Swim every week – Mondays – I swam the 1st two Mondays of the month, and then never again.
  3. Bike trainer every week – Tuesdays – I biked once.
  4. Short run every week – Wednesdays – Not even once. Oops.
  5. P90X Core workout every week – Fridays – Again – nothing.
  6. Yoga every week – Saturdays – Nope. And after the finger dislocation, yoga seemed a bad idea.
  7. Long run ever week – Sundays – Ummm…the aforementioned 10 miler was the only one.

At this point (I am writing on 12/28), I am planning on running on 12/29 & 12/31. We’ll see how that goes.

And now for the good stuff!

A new year! Yay!

One response to “January 2013 Goals

  1. That’s a great way to finish off your 7th year of blogging. Very impressive. What’s the 10k series? like a grand prix series or something? I must have missed it.
