At the start of 2012 I decided to create a 12 item to do list for the year. To keep myself on track I am going to give a progress update at the end of each month. Please let me know how your goals for 2012 are coming along as well!
#1 – Complete 6 trail races. I have signed up for the 1st one of the year which will be a 10K in March. I will let you all know how it goes!
#4 – Ski 30 days. January started off with 8 straight days of skiing at Heavenly and Northstar in Tahoe. As awesome as that may sound, I unfortunetly went to Tahoe while they had practically NO snow. Not cool. I am by no means a snow snob since I grew up skiing and teaching skiing on the east coast. However, out west in January I expect it to be steep and deep. Oh well. C’est la vie…sub par skiing is better than no skiing! Since heading back to reality in VA I have only gotten in 1 ski day at Snowshoe Mountain in West Virginia, bringing my 2012 total to 9 days. Not as great as my January total in previous years, but I do have some ski days on my calender for February that I am looking forward to! Fingers crossed for lots of snow this next month!
#7 – Make a trip back to WY/CO and #8 – Get together with college friends. I have plane tickets purchased for a friend’s bachelorette party in Denver this weekend. So if all goes according to plan, these two items will be checked off in my February recap! I always seem to have fun with these ladies, whether it be partying in Vegas (can you pick me out?),
Attending a Beer Fest in the country
Or skiing closing day at Steamboat…it is a guaranteed good time with these gals!
okay, enough with the reminiscing!
#9 – Cut my peanut butter consumption down to 2 jars a month. I ate an entire jar of peanut butter while in Tahoe – I told you I go through a jar a week!!! – , so I had to refrain from buying another jar until the end of the month, but I am happy to report that I have stuck to my 2 (16 oz) jar a month limit for the first month of the year.
While nothing in my list has been officially checked off yet, I am happy with the progress I have made so far!
Other notable acomplishments the past month that are not on the 12 in 2012 To Do List: 1) Submitted an abstract for presentation at a conference in April. 2) Submitted a graduate research grant proposal. 3) Have not missed a workout on my schedule yet!
What goals did you set for yourself in 2012? How are you doing on them thus far?
