February 2017 Goals

I was determined to be on time with this month’s goals, so I think publishing on February 2nd is a win! It’s hard to believe the first month of 2017 is already in the books. How are you doing with your monthly/yearly goals? Still dreaming big? Keeping track? Let’s take a look at my January goals first and see how I did:

1.) Organize my closet: A+ I’m super happy about this one. My goal was to figure out a system that worked well for us while we budget for me to turn an extra room into a big closet. Bobby generously offered to give me the whole master closet! His hanging clothes now live in the extra room closet. he doesn’t have many so they all fit, and now I have the master all to myself! I still need to buy a few more hangers, but I pretty much have everything how I want it, and now I can actually see all of my clothes and  not wear the same thing over and over.

2.) Fix my workout routine: B- This is still a work in progress, but getting better! The past two Saturdays I have been able to go on long runs. Also, in addition to my two Orangetheory workouts every week, I did a day of cross training. I still need to figure out how to fit one more workout in, but I am happy with my progress so far.

3.) Eat better: C- If you will remember, I kind of wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted this to look like. Because of that, my goal wasn’t measurable, and I set myself up for failure. I had little “spurts” where I would pay more attention to what I ate, but I don’t feel like I got a handle on it. I need to be more specific with my plan. Learn from my mistake!

February goals:

1.) Track my food intake 1-2 days a week: As a measurable goal, I feel like this will work better for me. I use the My Fitness Pal app to track food, and it is a good reality check for me. However, I hate being a slave to calorie counting, so I will not do it every day. I think if I check in on myself and my habits one or two times a week it will help me out.

2.) Take Emma Kate to Disney: She has been asking to go see the big castle again, and she hasn’t been since before Christmas. It’s time to take her back since we live so close.

3.) Time Block My days: I have been having a hard time staying focused the past couple of weeks. I end up on rabbit trails on social media, or wandering from thing to thing in the house not really getting anywhere. I am going to start using my journal to (loosely) time block and see if that helps me stay on track this month.

  1. I’m running my first 1/2 Marathon in May so one big goal is to find a good training plan. Any suggestions?

    • I know this sounds like stating the obvious but I would google beginner half marathon training plans. There are so many an dit varies based on how hard you want to train/how many days a week you want to run etc. Good luck!

  2. I am pretty my on track with my goals but am off track with my budget tracking. I have to block some time and focus better and disconnect from social media when I have important things to do. It’s literally a rabbit hole that has been a big distraction so far this year.

  3. Yay for having the entire master closet!

  4. Glad you got the closet situation figured out – yay to having more room!

  5. I didn’t really have any JAN goals, other than to just get back into the swing of things. I really hate the month of January honestly, because it takes the WHOLE MONTH to recoup from the holidays (and get out of the “aw man, I wish it were still the holidays” WOMP WOMP) – ha ha! But now it’s February and I am ready to kick this year’s ASS!

  6. I love how you make actual plans for the month, even if you are not exactly happy with all of the results. I hate counting calories as well, so I count on my common sense when eating rather than making complicated calculations. My plan for next month is to make a plan for next month! Thanks for the inspiration!
