2017 Recap and 2018 goals

As 2017 closes, I can't help but look back over my year and see what goals I accomplished and what ones I fell short of. 

I want to end on a high note, so let's review the things I fell short of first. 

  • Didn't reach my 500 miles of running AGAIN 
  • Wasn't consistent with my nutrition and fitness
  • Was slower on my 1/2 Marathon then all 4 previous years
  • Didn't reach my goal weight

Now on the flip side, here are the things I accomplished.

  • Completed my Master's Degree in Public Safety Administration
  • Started working with the personal trainer at the gym and pushed myself with weight training
  • Ate better at least 50% of the time
  • Met an awesome friend during my half and really enjoyed the run
  • Ran more miles this year than ever
  • Lost 13 lbs

Here are my goals for next year.

  • Run at least 500 miles
  • Strive for eating healthy 70% of the time
  • Strength train 3x per week and run 3-4 times per week
  • Run my Mt Dora 1/2 Marathon between 2:30 - 2:40
  • PR on another half marathon
  • Lose 10-15 lbs

So tell me... how do you feel about your 2017 accomplishments and what are your 2018 goals?

8 months......

8 months. That's how long it has been since I blogged last, but I do have a good excuse. I was working on my Masters degree. Have any of you done that? Holy cow, that was a lot of writing. Thank goodness I am done! I just started a blog course with one of my awesome friends, so hopefully I can now get myself to be more consistent. I plan on keeping you posted on the joys and challenges of my fitness and my life. I am going to get as raw and honest with you as I can. And I hope you all hold me accountable. So be prepared, I am getting back to my blogging self :D I have missed you all!.
