2017 

  1. Run the Naked Bavarian 40 mile race on March 4, 2017  – the day before my 36th birthday! – Done – read race recap here.
  2. Raise $5,000 for Covenant House Pennsylvania -Done March 3, 2017
  3. Run the Dirty German 50 mile race on May 13, 2017 – Almost 1 year to the date of giving birth to Bowen. – Ran the 25K it was during a Nor’easter and the conditions were atrocious so I would say 1/3 done but not really done.  
  4. Lose the baby weight – I am over it.  I want to feel and look like myself again. Current Weight – 140 lbs/Goal weight – 120 lbs. 20 lbs to go! – Nope not even close.  After the holidays I ended up at 136 lbs.  So I lost 4 lbs all year.  Not acceptable at all. 
  5. Rock climb More – No set amount just get on the wall/outside more. – Done-ish but this lets be honest? This goal was Bullshit.  Goals need to be more specific than this shit.
  6. Travel More – France and Niagara Falls are already on the list.  We ended up traveling to France, Florida, California and back to Florida for the holidays so I am happy with our travel this year. 
  7. Blog More – No set rules just simply more – Nope not even close to done and here we have another bullshit goal.  
  8. One small house project a month – complete with a blog post about it.  Again a big FAT NOPE.
  9. Declutter – more donations and selling.  I donated a bunch of stuff and sold a bunch more so I did really well with this but not so much with limiting our acquiring stuff.
  10. Spend less – what’s the point of decluttering if I am just going to fill the house back up with more stuff?  Yeah so here is were I feel like I failed miserably.  Less stuff was not implemented but I guess the goal was not to spend which I really didnt but we acquired a lot of stuff for free and it was not good.

Color coding:

  • Green=Goal completed
  • Red = Failed
  • Brown = It was a shit goal to begin with so I could say I completed them but I would just be selling myself short.
