February 12 in 2012 Recap

Well February certainly flew by and it is time to check in again to see what progress I have made on my 12 in 2012 “To Do List”. (Check out January’s recap here if you missed it).

#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?

      Thank you! I am constantly amazed at how my friends are all so gorgeous, yet also such kind-hearted, intelligent, talented, and down-to-earth people. I am blessed to have them in my life!

    I love to ski, it’s a shame you haven’t been able to recently. Great idea with prioritizing commitments, it’s so easy to take on too much and then feel the pressure to do even more!

    Great! I was wondering how you were doing with the peanut butter addiction. How big are these jars of peanut butter you consume??? I never eat peanut butter and yet you eat 2 to 4 jars a month. Amazing!

    I love how you are still tallying your NYEve goal. I think I will copy you and do that for my next Tuesday with Teri! 🙂

      I’m not super familiar with that area , but it looks to me like the clsseot location listed on the chart is Farmington, with a date of May 1. If you tend to have similar weather to Farmington, I would use that date. You’re right on the edge of the two groups. If it is a mild winter/spring and you are excited, I would follow the yellow schedule. If it is a cold winter-spring and you are more relaxed, I would use the green schedule.
