2012 Goals {Check In #4}

Back in January {which seems like a lifetime ago} I set 4 goals for the year.

For the fourth time this year, I am checking in to evaluate how I have done.

1. Take more time for me.  Not so good, but not horrible.  Honestly, I just didn't have time this past month to take time for myself.  Even the fun things I did included other people, which is not a bad thing, but it did not give me much time to focus on myself and MY inner peace.

2. Get back on track health wise - eating.  As in March, this was not stellar.  But I did up my game a little bit, so some improvement is better than none.

3. Get back on track health wise - exercise. Ah.Mazing!!  I've been religious about getting workouts in at least 3 times a week.  I've even added a few 20 minute walks in at work, which has helped me reach my personal goal of 10,000 steps a day.  Signing up for a 5k was the best thing I could do to motivate myself!

4. GO ON VACATION!!  We're going on a road trip!!!  Oregon, Washington, the coast....I am in heaven!  And the BEST part is that we've saved enough money to do this vacation and not stress!  :)

My grade this month - A-.  I really need to get back on track with eating well 90% of the time, so I can indulge that 10%.  One thing I'm doing is making my own iced coffees to take to work.  Basic ingredients, no extra crap that Sbux put in and waaaay less calories!  My 5k is one month from tomorrow and I'm pretty confident that by then I'll be able to jog 1.5-2miles of it.


  1. I think it's awesome you made goals for yourself and you're sticking to them! I bet you could jog the whole 5k if you pace yourself! I think you would surprise yourself! Good luck!

  2. You are going to do awesome in the race!! I totally agree its hard to stay focused on the eating. The only thing that helps me is the adverse reaction of pimples and bloating I get from eating bad food. :)

  3. That looks like a good grade to me!

  4. I'm so glad you gave yourself an A!!! Everyone needs an A. Plus you truly deserve it. I like all your goals. I need to go on vacation!

  5. WONDERFUL goals!!
    When is vacation time?! So excited for you! !! :)
    How long are your workouts? You go girl!! Keep it up :)
