Goal Check In: December 2018

Monday, December 31, 2018


  • Drink eight glasses of water a day 
    • Because of marathon training, I drank way more than eight glasses of water a day! 
  • Journal everyday
    • This is still one of my favorite things to do! I can't wait to look back on my entries one day and see how much I've grown. 


  • Workout four days a week
    • Between getting sick and going out of town I didn't get all my workouts in. I did however complete my longest runs ever this month so I think the intensity of those workouts made up for it. 
  • Cook a new meal once a week
    • Didn't try any new recipes this month. 
  • Work from a coffee shop one day a week
    • I tried out a new coffee shop but didn't bring work with me.
  • No TV or Social Media one day a week
    • This is one goal I failed at this year... oops! 


  • Read two books a month
  • Try a new restaurant
    • Houston
      • Catalina Coffee: This is definitely a hipster coffee shop and I love it! When we went there was a long line of people waiting to order and a majority of the tables were full. Parking isn't the greatest either, but the coffee was good! 
      • Steamboat House: We had Christmas Eve dinner here and it was a cool spot! It's a restaurant but also a Texas History museum. The service was great and so was the food. 
      • Golden Bagels and Coffee: During my long training runs I always pass by this place and I'd been meaning it try it for a long time. We finally made it out there with Megan and Andrew. While I am not well versed on bagels, Megan is, and she said that the shmear to bagel ratio was off (insert shrugging emoji here). I on the other hand enjoyed my blueberry bagel covered in strawberry cream cheese!
    • San Antonio 
      • Paula Deen's Family Kitchen: I was a little nervous to try this place because the reviews on it aren't the best. Our friends picked it out and we went to dinner with them. My immediate thoughts about his place were that it was like a slightly better Luby's and I was spot on. The food was fine and the service was good but there wasn't anything great about it. 
  • Plan a girls night
    • Honestly the holiday season is a crazy time of year so I didn't get to plan anything.
  • 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. 
  • Complete a Whole30 - Completed April 13, 2018 
  • Plan our 30th birthday party
    • The week of our party my beloved grandmother passed away. Of course we cancelled and made our way to Eagle Pass to be with family and to say goodbye to my grandma.  What we had planned on being a day of fun turned out to be a day of sadness.
