Goal Check In: November 2018

Friday, November 30, 2018


  • Drink eight glasses of water a day 
    • Honestly water is what I drink most. Coffee comes in a close second! 
  • Journal everyday
    • I don't think I'll ever stop journaling. I like jotting down what I've done during the day and my thoughts. 


  • Workout four days a week
    • With marathon training in full swing I've had no problems keeping up with this! 
  • Cook a new meal once a week
      • We are great about cooking and eating at home, but we haven't tried any new recipes. 
  • Work from a coffee shop one day a week
    • Worked from Egg Haus one day this month! 
  • No TV or Social Media one day a week
    • I need to get better about this. 


  • Read two books a month
    • I started a couple of books but I am not done yet. 
  • Try a new restaurant
    • Houston
      • Spicy Girl: I didn't like my noodles but Steven's spicy crispy chicken was delicious! 
      • EggHaus: This place is my new favorite neighborhood breakfast spot! We loved it so much we went two days in a row! Steven and I both had the "El Jefe" tacos and loved them! I am also a big fan of their Nutella latte and croissants. 
    • New Braunfels 
      • Krause's Biergarten & Cafe: Cute spot but the service was so slow. I think we waited an entire hour between ordering and when we got our food. I had a Bloody Mary and Ruben sandwich and both were just ok. 
      • Wicked Voodoo Espresso: The coffee at this little drive thru was delicious! I will definitely stop by whenever we are in New Braunfels.  
    • Franklin, Tennessee  
      • Puckett's Grocery: The BBQ Mac and cheese was delicious! 
      • O'Be Joyful: We stopped in for a drink while we were walking around downtown Franklin and both the service and drinks were good! We didn't eat anything but everything we saw coming out looked good. 
      • The Perch: This place was walking distance from our AirBnB which was convienent for our departure day breakfast. Steven ordered bacon and I saw them taking pre cooked bacon out of a container and reheating it in the microwave. That alone made me automatically made this place a no for me.
    • Nashville, Tennessee 
      • Biscuit Love: We waited outside in the cold for about an hour for this place and it was so worth it! I had the "Lily" which is biscuit French toast and I am pretty sure I cleaned off the plate! 
      • Killbrew Coffee: While waiting in line for breakfast at Biscuit Love we left the guys to hold our spot and went in search of coffee. We popped into Killbrew coffee and grabbed a couple of vanilla lattes. Not only is the coffee shop beautiful, the customer service and coffee were great too! 
      • Hattie B's Hot Chicken: Spicy fried chicken is my jam! This was the perfect meal to end our day in Nashville. 
  • Plan a girls night
    • Clearly I am terrible at this! Didn't plan a girls night this month. 
  • Send birthday cards
    • Got the cards out this month! 


  • Run a 10k - Completed on February 24, 2018 
    • Finished my first timed 10k in 59:15.6 mins! 
  • Run a half marathon
    • Ran my first half marathon on July 15! I completed 13.2 miles in 2 hours and 20 minutes! 
    • Ran another half marathon on November 7! I completed it in 2 hours and 11 minutes.
