At the beginning of January, I shared with you my 2016 Goals .
My initial thought was to review/update my goals monthly and/or quarterly. After reviewing my goals, I have decided a monthly check-in on some of my goals would be appropriate and some a quarterly check-in would be appropriate.
Well here we are at the beginning of February and so it is time for a check-in.
-Continue to blog at least 3 times a week-
Week 1- blogged 4 times
Week 2-blogged 1 time (I was traveling)
Week 3-blogged 4 times
Week 4-blogged 4 times
-Find my authentic blog voice: (this will be a quarterly check in-look for an update on this in April)
-Increase blog subscription to 100
This month I have added 7 new followers. That is pretty exciting for me J. I will be participating in another Blog Hop with Kristy @ Runaway Bridal Planner the next few weeks of this month and I am hopeful to gain a few more followers from there.
–Continue to find my ‘blog tribe’: (this will be a quarterly check in-look for an update on this in April)
-I have not done anything towards this as of yet. I am still in the research and debating phase.
–Create Mission Statement for the blog: (this will be a quarterly check in-look for an update on this in April)
–Begin to research monetizing: -I have not done anything towards this as of yet. I am still in the research and debating phase.
-De-clutter/organize my house:
Can we say THANK YOU to the blizzard of 2016!!! I have 10 days to do this and I am proud to say that I accomplished about 80% of the initial de-clutter/organization…yeah!!! Next up is my closet …and then developing an organization system and routine.
–Study/Pass the NASM Certified Trainer test:
😦 I haven’t even looked at the book. I did find it while de-cluttering…that counts for something right?
–Begin Developing Business plan for personal training: (this will be a quarterly check in-look for an update on this in April)
In the meantime see above ….;(
–1 family night a week….does 10 days trapped in the house due to a blizzard count!!! We have not established this as of yet as Jan was a bit crazy with travel.
–2 date nights a month…. We have not established this as of yet as Jan was a bit crazy with travel.
–Be more present at home. Cell phone on charger/no lap top use until the kids go to bed:
-I have made great strides with this. I would say that about 70-75% of the time, I have successfully put the devices away…still a work in progress but remarkably better.
–Continue to pay off debt…miss no payments/ make no late payments:
–monetize blog: I have not done anything towards this as of yet. I am still in the research and debating phase.

-I have started taking swim classes and will continue through the Spring. My next step is going to the pool for open swim times to practice what I am learning in swim classes.
–Get to my ideal racing weight while determining how to effectively fuel my body
I have been loving using my racing weight cookbook and will be purchasing the racing weight book this weekend. I plan to fully implement the program after I complete the 21 day reset.
–Consistently strength train 2-3 times a week:
Week 1- Worked out 3 times
Week 2- Worked out 3 times
Week 3-Rest week after 6 game prior weekend football tournaments

So far, so good. Outside of the pain from my arthritis, I have not developed any new injuries (know on wood!!)
I realized the other day that I do not have a half on my 2016 race schedule….looking for one for later in the year….Nov/Dec (any suggestions?)
–Determine my comfortable race pace in varying distances (5k-13.1):
(this will be a quarterly check in-look for an update on this in April)
–continue to increase speed:
;( We have not had a track workout in FOREVER!!!! Between extreme cold and 3 feet of snow, it just hasn’t happened. I hope to get back at it soon.
Well there you have it….my 2016 Goal check in. I have to say that I am very proud of my efforts towards most of my goals. I will work harder at those I have not touched yet and hope to report with some good updates next month.
Did you set 2016 goals? How is it going? Is a monthly or quarterly check-in helpful for you?
