I figured since we’re two months in to the new year I would give you a mission update. Also, I figured out how to include a hyperlink in my email that I send directly to upload to my blog. Not a mission but YAY me!
Anyways…my missions were as follows:
· Maintain my weight loss
· Train for my first 5K in April
· Keep house in order
· Read 1 book per month
· Blog more about meaningful things
So starting with my weight loss. I met my Weight Watchers lifetime goal so I am now a card-carrying lifetime member. I’m pretty stoked about that because it means I no longer have to pay! Woo hoo! So since June I have lost a total of 17 pounds. And while that doesn’t seem like a lot to lost in 8 months, on a 5’1” frame that is quite a bit if I do say so myself! Also…since giving birth to Jacoby in October of 2011 I’ve lost a total of over 50 pounds. That is definitely a lot on a short frame!
I have not trained as much as I should for my 5K but I will be finishing my second week of training on the couch to 5K tonight. You know…it only took me 2 months to do 2 weeks worth but now that the snow is melted I am going to buckle down and run 3 days a week. I got this!
Keeping my house in order is laughable. But I’m trying. My kitchen gets cleaned every night and we’re not leaving dishes setting for a day or two at a time. It’s the little things.
I read one book in January (Mindy Kaling’s ‘Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me) and I finished Sarah’s Key on March 1st so I was so close to my deadline! I’m also about 75% finished with Stephen King’s book 11/22/63 so I will definitely be finished with that one by the end of March. I just joined a book club with a girl I went to high school with. It’s a Facebook only club since she lives in California so we’ll see how it goes. That was why I read Sarah’s Key. It was really sad. And the ending wasn’t really to my liking but that’s neither here nor there. I would recommend it though.
And finally…blogging about more meaningful things. I feel like I’ve done a pretty good job about this. The number of posts have been less but I feel the depth has been better. So that is also accomplished. If you want a recap of my last two months here are the main ones…

And if anyone has any extra money to throw my way I can go on a vacation!
Overall I feel like I’m doing well with my missions. But we’ll see over the course of the next 10 months!
