February Goals 2013

 

I can’t believe the first month of 2013 is coming to a close. I am finally getting used to writing/typing “2013” instead of 2012, which i got the hang of fairly quickly as opposed to previous years. Since February is looming close, it’s time to check in on my January goals, and make some new ones for February. First, let’s see how I did this past month:

1.) Finish Goofy in an upright position. (A+) It. was. awesome. Not only did I finish in an upright position, but I had a smile on my face AND a full marathon PR to boot. I couldn’t be happier with how this race went. Definitely one I will always remember.

2.) Vlog more. (C-) Well, I vlogged….once. But hey, it was one of my favorites, and I am really proud of it. Still working on this one, as it is really important to me.

3.) Stretch more. (B+) I know this was essential for getting through Goofy, so I actually did stretch, a lot. Before and after runs, Bobby and I both took the time to really work on this. It’s something I can always improve on though, so I’m not giving myself an A.

4.) Stay healthy. (A-) Knock on wood, I have stayed pretty healthy. The weather keeps changing so my allergies have caused a bit of trouble here and there but nothing major. Hoping to stay that way so I can get through Princess healthy!

Now here are my February goals:

1.) Comment on more blogs. Not going to lie, January was very busy and I barely had time to blog let alone read other blogs. I want to be supportive of our little community so I want to do better with this in February.

2.) Have a great race: I am going to try to run a 5k or two and then I of course have the Princess half at the end of the month. My goal is to have a great race in February. Not necessarily a PR race, just one where I am healthy, feel good about myself, and have fun with.

3.) Get my tax info together. We have an accountant, but we also have TONS of receipts, and I have done work for lots of companies this year which makes tax preparation quite a headache. We like to have everything totaled up for our accountant, put in spreadsheets etc. It’s a lot of work and I have done some but keep putting the rest off.

4.) Raise my weight at the gym. I have been kind of a lazy gym goer when it comes to lifting lately. I am consistent, but I noticed I haven’t raised my weight in awhile. I think i can try a lot harder to lift heavier weight, and I really want to push myself to do that this month.

There you have it, my mini goals for the month of February. it feels great to accomplish a few smaller things during the month as opposed to a huge looming yearly goal. This is how I operate best, and it’s a big confidence booster to see results!

Comments

  1. I love these mini goals! Very inspiring! I really need to comment more, too…

  2. I like the goals! They’re all totally attainable. It seems pointless to me to commit to goals that you won’t achieve, so I like that you’re keeping it real. I could add some weights to my routine at the gym too…

  3. Great goals! I can’t believe it’s already February…I feel like I was just creating January goals. For a third month in a row, I think my main goal is to get back on track. Winter’s been tough for me!

  4. I want to start running outside more. My apartment is now next to a nature preserve, and it’s got running trails. I’m currently researching fuel belts for when my long runs kick in. I’ve started to feel like a hamster on the treadmill.

  5. Those are great goals! My only goal for Feb is to get healthy – January has been a craptastic month for me.

  6. I love the mini goals! I am doing them also and it helps so much! That way if you don’t finish them you can still work on them the next month and you just don’t give up the whole thing!

  7. Great goals!! I’m still not used to writing 2013 AT ALL. Will you be doing a princess blogger meetup this year?

  8. Great job in January! Ugh tax stuff. I do not want to deal w/ that headache yet!

  9. I can definitely relate to that lifting comment – running is easy to stick with, but lifting not so much!

  10. January was so busy I didn’t even set mini goals for myself! I have some for February though! Bring it on. and I’m SO excited to have won the giveaway- YAAAY!

  11. Those are some great goals! I recently started strength training so I’m still working on the low end of weights, but I don’t mind as long as I improve! Good luck with Princess! Sounds like a fun month for you!

  12. congrats on the ambassadorship, you’ll be so great!! I wonder if there is anything like that for florida I love the idea :)

    great feb goals!
