Gut Check on 2013 Goals

January 20, 2013

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!

1 box noodles, 1 jar pasta sauce, vegan meatballs, fresh basil

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.  🙂

    My working so late and leaving the cooking to you doesn’t help. We shan’t give up!
