Yearly Goals Update: January 2017

Tuesday, February 21

I told myself that I was going to be more accountable on my goals this year. So to me that meant doing a monthly post about where I am in relation to what I could accomplish this year.

My goals for the year are in bold and the update is below starting with an asterisk:

-Read my Scriptures/Conference talks for at least 5 minutes a day.
       *I will be honest, I really enjoy reading scriptures/conference talks while I eat breakfast, and I just have not been getting up early enough to make 5 minutes work. Before church on Sunday I have been listening to conference talks. But overall I was not consistent everyday. 
-Attend the temple (with or without Chase) at least 10 times.
     *I didn't get to attending the temple this past month.
-Fulfill my Visiting Teaching each month (something I constantly struggle with).
     *I did visit 2 out of the 3 sisters I was supposed to visit. The other one my companion took care of due to our schedules conflicting.

-Sign up for 1-marathon, 1-half marathon, 1-10k and 1-5k to complete by the end of 2017.
     *I haven't signed up for any races yet, I need to talk to a few running buddies to figure out which ones to sign up for.
-Stick with strength training/Barre at least 3 times a week.
     *I will be honest I thought I would have enough energy to continue my exercising, but I have been SO tired. Working full-time on concrete floors all day really has an impact on me. So I was only able to do Barre a handful of times in January.
-Do some sort of cardio activity at least 3 times a week.
     *I went running once in January, and didn't do the elliptical or bike.

-Do an activity/Date night we both enjoy once a month.
     *We went to a lot of places together, but I don't think we set aside any time for just us.
-Being okay with asking for help from Chase (this is an ongoing one that I need to continue to do).
     *It's been better, but I still struggle with this.
-Have a better and more meaningful relationship with Chase (this is ongoing).
     *I strive for this each and every day, and can really tell when we haven't gotten to sit down and just talk one-on-one with each other.

-Read/Listen to 5 books.
     *I listened to "I Am Number 4" by Pitticus Lore - book #1 of a series called "The Lorien Legacies." I've listened to it before, but I wanted to continue and get farther with the series.
-Be in the present and stop focusing on the "what if's" and the future.
     *I think the deep relaxation that I've been practicing has been helping me not focus on the "what if's" with life. It has also helped me calm my mind.
-Write in my journal at least once per month.
     *I totally failed with actually writing in my journal, but I did write down what's been going on this pregnancy on my personal blog.
