It’s about that time everyone, recap of last month’s goals and a list of goals for the next month! And, since it’s the new year, I’ll also be doing a post of my goals for 2012! It’s going to be a big year!

First, let’s recap on how I did on my goals for December!

December Goals:


1. Keep up my long runs. I wanted to keep up my long runs since I didn’t have anything to train for over the winter. I did alright with this one, although none of my runs were as long as I would have liked. During finals, I just didn’t have the time for a long run, so the furthest I got was 6 miles, but during the week and a half I’ve been home, I’ve done two 8 mile runs! I’m hoping to pick it up more once I get back to Chicago, but now I’m about to travel around for over a week!

2. Practice Intuitive Eating I did pretty good with this one, especially since I’ve been home. I’ve definitely had my slip ups when I’m stressed, but for the most part I’ve been following it and I haven’t counted calories at all since I’ve been home! Which is mostly due to the fact that we eat out a lot or I don’t make all my own food. Less control can be good sometimes!

3. Make my family and friends LOVE gluten free cookies!

Well, I sorta did this one. I actually only made one batch of gluten free cookies: Sugar cookies! Everyone thought they were delicious, but with all the non-gluten free cookies I made, I ended up saving the sugar cookies for myself! Haha. They were good though.

These goals are definitely something that I want to keep up with generally (well, except the cookie one), so I’ll keep working on them throughout January and further on!

Time for some new goals for a new month!

January Goals:

1. Read 3 more books before school starts back up. One of my favorite things to do on break is to read books that have nothing to do with law school. I love reading, but during the year I’m doing so much reading for school, that I usually don’t have time to read for fun! I recently finished Born to Run and would like to get in 3 more books before I start school again! I have a ton just waiting for me, so I’d like to get through them!

2. Run 11 miles. This goal goes a bit on my one from last month, for keeping up with long runs. The furthest I’ve run is 10 miles, so I want to keep increasing my distance. I know I won’t be able to do the run until after I head back to Chicago, but I really want to get up to 11 before the month is over!

3. Cut out white sugar. I’ve been eating way more white sugar than usual since I’ve been home for the holidays, and I’m really not supposed to eat it at all. My goal for once I get back to Chicago is to cut it out completely and for as long as possible. I’m going to treat it just like gluten, soy, and pasteurized milk. I should have done this ages ago, but it’s hard! Almost all candy that’s not homemade or all natural has white sugar! AKA M&Ms… and I love M&Ms…
