2017 Monthly Check In: August and September

As you may have noticed, I didn’t end up writing a goal recap for August :( September was just a really busy month, and I ended up falling behind on several fronts, so now you’re getting August and September rolled into one. Here’s how I progressed on my 2017 goals in the last two months: I have been completely missing my 10 pushups / 20 split squats / 30 plank leg lifts routine, and it really shows when it comes to my pushups. {Read More}

Colorado Fall Bucket List

Today should be Travel Thursday, but due to my South Florida client’s power outage, I’m working from home this week instead. I’m certainly thinking of all the people who were affected by either Irma or Harvey, especially those who haven’t yet been able to go home to see if things are okay. The uncertainty has to be terrible :( In July, I made a summer bucket list of activities to try and places to go before Labor Day. I didn’t {Read More}

2017 Monthly Goal Check In: July

August really snuck up on me, but as I look back through my goal posts, I realized that every month this year has been going by so fast. But even though we’re well into the third quarter, I’m really happy with how 2017 is going. Lots of good stuff all around! I completely abandoned my 10 pushups / 20 split squats / 30 plank leg lifts… it just felt like too much to be doing that and run a mile every day. Okay, {Read More}

2017 Monthly Goal Check In: June

It’s July already? This year is going by fast. Here’s how I progressed on my 2017 goals in the month of June: I stuck to my 10 pushups / 20 split squats / 30 plank leg lifts pretty well this month, only missing one day when I was traveling from Boston to New York to visit friends in both places and was never really on my own. Not too bad! But I still didn’t get into a routine of always {Read More}

2017 Monthly Goal Check In: May

Whoops, June has been super busy and so I’m more than two weeks late in getting this check in done! I’ll keep it short, but want to stay accountable by still talking about my goal progress in May. Toward the end of the month, I fell off the bandwagon with my morning routine of 10 pushups, 20 lunges, and 30 plank leg lifts. About halfway through the month, I switched from lunges to bodyweight split squats, and I liked that change {Read More}

I’m Going Streaking

I may be back from Cornell, and I may be sleeping in a glorious king-sized bed instead of a twin XL (thank goodness)… but that doesn’t mean I can’t go streaking, right? A few weeks ago, Runner’s World announced their annual running streak challenge: run at least a mile every single day from Memorial Day through July 4th. As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I’m attempting to take on this challenge… and possibly even extend it all the way through {Read More}

2017 Monthly Goal Check In: April

This was a bit of an odd month for me. I had a week of vacation, followed by a week of being incredibly sick, and all that really threw me off my schedule! I’m really looking forward to getting back on track in the month of May. I stuck with my daily morning routine of 10 pushups, 20 lunges, and 30 plank leg lifts about half the days I was on vacation, and completely forgot about it the other days. And {Read More}

2017 Monthly Goal Check In: March

Well, I skipped doing a monthly goal check in last month because of my health scare. No news to report there, but tomorrow I finally have my appointment with the neurologist to piece together all my wonky test results… so tomorrow’s basically judgment day! I’ll let you know what I find out. In the meantime, how about I get back on track with a progress check in on my 2017 goals? My morning routine is still going strong, and I haven’t {Read More}

2017 Monthly Goal Check In: January

I still feel like I’m getting used to it being January of a new year, but we’re already a month into 2017. Time is flying so far this year! This year, I set a few small goals to work on over the course of the year. My plan is to check in every month, and potentially revise some of the goals a little bit as needed, but ultimately, keep track of my ongoing progress. And so far, I’m doing pretty {Read More}

A Few More Small Resolutions for 2017

Before the end of 2016, I wrote a 2017 New Year’s goals post – but also noted that I didn’t have all my resolutions figured out yet. But the more I thought about it (and talked about it with some great and inspiring friends), I ended up coming up with a short list that I’m really excited about. Some are daily habits and some are long-term goals, but all are things that I feel pretty passionate about and I also think {Read More}
