Goal Check In: January 2018

Wow I can't believe that January is over. In the blink of an eye the month disappeared. It has been a busy and productive month thankfully! In an effort to remain accountable here is my goal check in for the month:

  • Drink eight glasses of water a day 
    • There were three days that I didn't hit my goal. It's easy for me to get to five glasses of water but after that I have to remind myself to drink more. I find that the days I work out I have no problem drinking eight glasses of water. It's my rest days that require me to put in some more effort. 
  • Journal everyday
    • Honestly, I am excited to review my journal at the end of the year. It has been fun writing about my day. When I first set out to do this I thought I would be handwriting into one of my countless pretty journals, but I knew that I would not really keep up with journaling every day if that was the case. Instead I started using the Day One App on my iPhone. The App is perfect for jotting down my thoughts as I have them. I also like that I can attach pictures to my journal entries.

  • Workout four days a week
    • I've been really good with this one! I started the year with a ski trip  then started using the Sweat App by Kayla Itsines and 10k training. 
  • Cook a new meal once a week
  • Work from a coffee shop one day a week
    • Totally didn't do this at all. 
  • No TV or Social Media one day a week
    • Steven and I put away our phones for one day, but we did watch TV. It's a lot harder than I thought it would be to completely disconnect. 

  • Read two books a month
    • I started reading Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow at the beginning of the month and I am only half way done with it. To be fair it is 731 pages long and not an easy read. It has been great so far and while I considered spending a full day or two just reading to get it done this month I don't have that kind of time to dedicate to it so I will finish it next month. I did take a break from Alexander Hamilton to read Wonder by R.J. Palacio. I read it in a day! I'll have a book review for both books soon. 
  • Try a new restaurant
  • Plan a girls night
    • Not exactly just a girls night since the guys were around too, but I made a trip out to San Antonio to celebrate two of my friends birthdays. We got to catch up and spend time with each other which we always love doing. 
  • Send birthday cards
    • At the beginning of the month I designed and got custom birthday cards printed for the January babies! 

  • Run a 10k
    • I started training! I am less than a month away from running in my first 10k race. 
  • Run a half marathon
    • Obviously I am not at the point where I can run a half marathon yet but training for a 10k is progress towards this goal. I haven't signed up for a half marathon yet but I did sign up for a full marathon next January. 
  • Complete a Whole30
    • I bought the books, started cooking a couple of recipes, and started planning. I have a couple more weeks to finish preparing before Steven and I start our Whole30 in March. 
  • Plan our 30th birthday party
    • I have ideas but no set plans just yet. Thankfully Steven and I don't turn 30 until December.
