March 2017 – Monthly Roundup

This past week I have been down on myself because I haven’t felt that great and I haven’t done anything to progress on any of my goals.  But today I get to write how I did for my goals and I completed two and got a great start to a third and that’s BAD-ASS.  So I need to stop being so hard on myself.  Here’s my update:

  1. Run the Naked Bavarian 40 mile race on March 4, 2017  –  Still smiling and proud of myself for completing this race. Read race recap here if you missed it.
  2. Raise $5,000 for Covenant House Pennsylvania – Boom reached $5,150 the day before the race.  I also went to their sleep-out event last Friday which I also need to blog about.  
  3. Run the Dirty German 50 mile race on May 13, 2017 –  Training was supposed to continue after the 40 miler but it basically stopped and I am not mad about it.  Tomorrow I have a marathon, which I am not really prepared for but I am not too nervous, we’ll see how I feel about it tomorrow night.  My plan is to kick butt in April but we will see how that goes because life with two kids tends to take precedence.
  4. Lose the baby weight (starting weight 140) – Nope. Not doing it this month.  I just came back from France where the pastries are worth every calorie and the Champagne was flowing.  I wasn’t going to let this goal get in my way of enjoying that so I will revisit this goal on April 30th.
  5. Rock climb More – So our trip to France was mainly about rock climbing so I climbed a couple of rocks on four separate days.  Check me out here with my hubby and baby:20170320_130829296_ios
  6. Travel More – France was great but I still have to write a post about it.  We will be in Niagara Falls for Memorial Day weekend.
  7. Blog More – My race recap for the Naked Bavarian was the type of quality writing I’d like to see on here.  I am not blogging for the sake of blogging I am looking for quality over quantity in all aspects of my life.
  8. One small house project a monthNope this one didn’t happen either.  Going to have to double up in March/April – lets face it March is about my birthday and FRANCE  – that’s what I wrote last month and yup April is going to be the month of getting shit done.
  9. Declutter –   I had a big donation pickup with 6 boxes of stuff getting picked up. and I got rid of a bookcase on Letgo
  10. Spend less – We spent a lot in France but I am happy to say it was mainly on food and experiences and not “stuff” to bring home.  That’s more our style.

Happy Friday! Wish me luck tomorrow!
