I never make New Year’s resolutions but rather goals to achieve each year and 2014 is no exception. It has been a little over 3 months since I made those goals and time for a review to see how I am progressing. I have always thought it was important to checkup on the progress monthly so that changes could be implemented quickly. My first goal was to pare down the items in my house. This has been at a standstill and I have not made any major progress since February. I have made some progress with the spare room but now that spring is here it has revived my energy and need to complete this goal. I did donate 3 bags and 2 boxes of clothes and miscellaneous items to the Vietnam Vets in March.
My next goal is to avoid surgery and return to running a 5k. After a scare when I had some hip pain I did return to running and ran 1 and ½ miles without pain. I will continue to do some running this weekend. . I am still planning to run the Pirate 5k on April 19th. I am also continuing the couch to 10k program as it is a walk/run and gradually allow me to return to running. In addition I have started Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30. It is a 20 minute complete circuit workout that can be done 4-5 days a week. Each week builds on the last and of course gets more challenging. I am on Week 1 and am sore already.
The main goal of 2014 is that 2014 is the year of me. While this goal is challenging for me I continue to make progress with it. I have started the photography class and learn so much each week. I have begun serving on the board of our townhouse association. The move into spring has me working on my spring and summer wardrobe as well as a change in my hairstyle to one that I really like. Meeting up with friends and family have also been on the calendar. How have your goals been progressing?
