#4. Ski 30 days. Snow has been scarce and the time to head out skiing has been even harder to come by. I was only able to get in 3 days skiing at Snowshoe Mountain in WV this month, which brings my 2012 total to date to a measly 12. This is certainly the worst ski year I have ever had 😦 . I need to get some days in during March so that I have enough time in Nov/Dec to get up to the 30 day mark!!
#7 Make a Trip Back to Wyoming or Colorado AND #8 – Get together with my college friends have BOTH been checked off this past month. I am hoping to make another trip back to WY/CO at some point this year to ski or hike, but it may not be in the cards, so I was super excited that one of my friends decided to hold her Bachelorette Party in Denver, CO – especially since she doesn’t even live there and had to fly in for it herself! It was a great weekend full of friends, fun, and a hint of the winter weather (i.e.- SNOW) that has alluded me so far this year.
#9 Cut My Peanut Butter Consumption Down to 2 Jars a Month: I’m still going strong at this one, sticking to my 2 jar limit!
#10 Make a list of all of my commitments, obligations, etc and prioritize them and remove some: While I have not “officially” done this yet, I have been working on it. As you may have noticed I have cut back on my blogging here at Dine, Dash, and Deadlift to less than twice a week and I have scaled back my role as a contributing blogger over at the iRunnerBlog to once per month instead of twice. As much as I love blogging, in the grand scheme of things it is much more important that I first devote my energy towards school work, teaching, research, professional service activities, and working out.
So there you have it. With 2 items checked off the list and several others “in progress” at the end of February, I feel like I am making sufficient progress on my 2012 To-Do List. Cheers to keeping the ball rolling in to March!
How are your goals/resolutions for the year coming along? How many commitments, obligations, etc do you allow yourself to have at a time? How do you prioritize them?
