Gut Check on 2013 Goals
On January 2, I posted what my goals were for 2013. It has been 19 days, and I’m ready for a gut check. Let’s see how I’ve been doing!
GOAL #1: Focus on running, and qualify for Boston marathon.
I started marathon training in January, and I’ve been diligently sticking to my plan. I’m starting to feel like a runner again! The second part of that statement? Well, I’m still working on it. My pace isn’t there yet, but that’s OK. I can tell I’m getting stronger every day.
GOAL #2: Cook more meals at home.
Fail. I started out with good intentions and made us go to the market to try several new recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I think I over planned because only half of those meals got made, while the rest of the ingredients rotted away in the fridge since I never took the time to prep/cook them. I’m not so sure why it’s hard for me to get back in the habit of cooking. I am still addicted to the Whole Foods salad bar!
Wanted: Quick and easy, healthy, vegan recipes like the one below!
GOAL #3: Set a budget, and follow it.
I’m still working through this one. It probably doesn’t include $58 unplanned trips to Whole Foods!
I’m glad I’m only tracking my progress against 3 goals right now because achieving them is harder than I thought it would be! Now, I’m off to make something in the crock pot for lunches this week. Really, I am. 🙂
