January 2015 Review

Hard to believe January 2015 is already over. That went quick! It seems as you get older, the time really does fly by!

January did not go as well as I had hoped. Not by a long shot. I didn't make a single goal I set for myself. As a review, here are the goals I set for myself in January:

Here's a breakdown on each:

1. Lose 7-8 lbs: Gained 1.6 pounds
2. Run 48 miles: 16 miles {32 miles under goal}
3. Follow meal plan: Not 100%, but actually not too far off. Some nights swapped a meal from later in the week. Ate out a few times more than we should have, but overall stayed on track better than usual.
4. Read 10 books: 9
5. Post Eastern State Penitentiary photos: Still on camera

I will say that I missed a whole week of runs due to my back the first full week of the month, so I knew I wasn't going to hit that 48 miles for the month. But, then I just lost total motivation. I couldn't bring myself to go out and run. Some of it had to so with snow, some of it had to do with my work schedule changing around, but mostly I just couldn't bring myself to do it. I lost the desire to go out. I don't know what happened, but this whole running thing just wasn't it this month.

Kinda annoyed I missed my reading goal by one book. Bah! Last January I read 19. Guess that's tied to that whole I lost the desire to do it this month. 

Not sure why the photos didn't come off the camera. I honestly thought about it many times. It just never translated into me actually doing it. Maybe this month?

So, I guess February is a new month and a new start. The monthly meal plan is written out. I do need to go over goals for the month, but at least I kept the one positive thing going...the meal planning.

How did your January go? Did you meet your monthly goals?       


  1. Wow! Even though you didn't meet all your goals, nine books in one month is pretty impressive. Keep grinding away!

    1. Thank you! 9 books is pretty good. Just wish I had that one more! ;)
