I am a few days late getting up my “12 in 2012” Recap for the past month. It has been a crazy couple of weeks, and very little has gotten done on this list.
#3 – Run My 1st Marathon: Not yet accomplished, but only 1 week left (if all goes according to plan) until this item can be crossed off. Training has had its ups and downs, but overall it has been a positive experience.
#9 – Cut My Peanut Butter Intake To 2 Jars a Month: 9 months down, 3 to go! For all you nut butter lovers, I hope you saw the recent FDA recalls and checked your jars to make sure they are safe!
#10 – Cut Back on Responsibilities/Obligations: Still a work in progress, and always will be. However, I manipulated my schedule a bit to help alleviate the stress I have been feeling. I have also been trying to not put more than 12 items on my list for the day. I found myself having 30 item to-do lists, all with items that would take a few hours each. Obviously, it was just not feasible. I’m hoping this new item cap per day will help me focus on the most important and not become too overwhelmed.
Like I said…not much on the list was able to get done.
With 3 months to go here is what remains:
#1 – Run 6 Trail Races. I still need to run 2 and luckily I have my eye on 3. This one should get accomplished before December.
#3 – Run My 1st Marathon. If all goes well, in a few days this one should be checked as well!
#4 – Ski 30 Days. This item I am scared about. If you are a skier, you know how awful last ski season ones. Combine that with me being a “geographically challenged skier”, and it was a recipe for very few ski days thus far in 2012. I need to ski 18 days before January 1, 3013 rolls around, so here is to an early and ample snow fall here in Virginia and up in New England for the winter holidays.
#5 – Go on 12 Hikes. Only 6 checked off. Have some work to do on this one.
#9 – Cut PB Back to 2 jars/month. No worries about taking care of this item for the remainder of the year!
#10 – Cut Back on Obligations/Priorities. I know this is something I will have to work on throughout my life as I am a workaholic by nature. However, if I can close the year feeling like I am in a good place and have a handle on the upcoming 2013 Spring Semester I will count this item as accomplished.
#12 – Visit 2 National Parks. I need to visit 1 more. This is another item I am nervous about being able to get done.
Lots left to do (in between everything I HAVE to do) on this list. Fingers crossed I can find a way to cross them all off.
What are your goals for the final quarter of the year? Have you started thinking about items you want to put on a “To Do List” for next year yet?
