December Roundup

I know… I know.. I already posted my New Years Resolutions for 2017 so who cares about how I did in 2016?!  Well here goes any way.  Better late than never:


  1. Write a blog – with at least two posts a week – I didn’t write twice a week but I wrote enough to feel accomplished so I am checking this one off the list!
  2. Run 500 miles – I may have to reduce this depending on how I feel with this pregnancy but let’s shoot for the stars for now  Completed December 29, 2016🙂  Finished the year at 520 miles to be exact.
  3. Save $6,000 by the end of June – $1,000 a month here we go!  Boom! Completed April 2016!!
  4. Finish one 12 week session of Kayla Itsines Beach Body Workout – this was on my 2015 goals but running took precedence – Just like every other time I have made this my goal, running took over.  I don’t really feel bad about it.  I think I keep putting this goal on my NY Resolutions thinking it will get done if its on here but that doesn’t seem to work either so I am just not going to worry about it.  It’s obviously not that important to me.
  5. Side Hustle – Sell 60 items – hoping this can supply my cash spending for the year Boom Completed July 2016!!  I did really well here because I kept at it even after I achieved my goal.  I am definitely going to keep this going just not going to keep as much track of it.
  6. Finish my Real Estate License – Online classes and I just don’t get along.  I have to find another way.
  7. Call my mother once a week – I hate talking on the phone – I didn’t call her as much as I should have but I did fly her up three times from Florida so I think that makes up for the lack of calls.  What can I say I hate the phone.
  8. Help my hubby accomplish his climbing goals –  On December 29th he finished up this goal.  Boom.

So overall I finished 6 of my 8 goals and I had a baby last year so I would say I kicked ass.  2016 was good to me and I am finally starting to feel like myself again.  Thanks for following along.  Special thanks to my hubby for helping me get these goals done and for this pretty picture:end-of-the-year


October Roundup

Its November.  Holy crap its November, where did this year go? Regardless here my update for October:

Blog –  Boom. 8 posts.  Getting better and definitely feel like I am starting to hit my stride.  Although I am not thrilled to be only writing about running but what’s a runner to do?

captureRunning – 63.56 miles. 338.23 miles year to date.  I surpassed my goal of 50 miles in October so  there is some flexibility for my 75 miles in November and 100 miles in December but I shouldn’t have a problem reaching 500 miles for the year.


Savings – Done

Fitness – BBG workout – This one is just not going to happen.  If I have any chance in finishing my 40 miler in March I have to focus on running.  Also my heart really isn’t in it.  I am going to continue to do the workouts just not as stringently as they are designed.  Plus its making my ass look great!

Selling – Done – I finished this one up in July but I’ve still been killing it. Sold 2 chairs both were hand me downs and a piece of art I bought for $50 and sold for $60.

Real Estate License – Another one probably not going to happen. Online classes are the pits and again just no drive to get it done.  I need to find another way.

Mom – She’s been traveling and my phone has been a disaster so not a good combo.

Climbing – Hubby just went on a long weekend getaway with the boys to Grayson Highlands so he’s doing great.

Here’s to getting things done as the holidays approach – wish me luck!
