12 in '12 Check-In

Happy Thursday, all! I plan on blogging at the start of every month about where I am on my 12 in '12 goals. If you didn't see the original post you can find it here :) Keep me accountable, ladies!!

In January I blogged 12 times. Around 16 a month would get me to my goal of 200 on the year, but I think for my first consistent month of blogging it wasn't too bad of a start ;) I also don't ever want to feel like I'm posting just to post.. I want to have something to say!

I only lost a few pounds this month, but I suppose it's better than nothing. The first few weeks of the year I was definitely slacking. Now that hubby and I are cooking healthier and I'm doing Zumba + running + Wii fit, I feel like I'm headed in the right direction. I've also started setting weekly weight goals I hope to meet! Next weigh in-- Monday!

J and I also signed up for our first 5k in a LONG time. It's March 10 so only about another 5 weeks to get ready. I can't wait! If you've never raced before, I encourage you to try one out… they are seriously SO much fun! Here's a great link to find races near you!

I read 4 books last month (OK- I finished the 4th one on February 1) = On target for 50 on the year! Can't wait to start my next one!!

Savings account--- Eh. It could be better, but I'll leave it at that ;)

Slowly, but surely our home is becoming more organized. We tackled a lot of clutter in our 2 extra bedrooms and I also got some baskets/organizing shelves for underneath our bathroom sink…. It's made a HUGE difference! I also have a gift card to the Container Store I'm hoping to use this weekend :) :) Nothing makes me happier than containers….. .nerd.alert.
I really can't describe the butterflies I get when I see this picture!!! 
No new cities yet, but a couple trips planned later in the year! Most of my other things are little more abstract, but I'm definitely trying to take more time to show kindness: to strangers and to friends. Just small acts here and there could make the world of difference. 

I challenge you to randomly do something nice this week! :)

  7. Good job on sticking with your goals! Running with your spouse is the best! I was training for a half marathon a couple of years ago and my husband decided to just go ahead and train with me. I think that was one of my favorite things we've ever done together. :)

  14. You sound just like me. Overall, really healthy but got a little too lazy around the holidays. Getting back to the gym in January kicked my booty for a few weeks, but I am feeling good now. I desperately want to sign up for a run too. I haven't done an official race since the Rock and Roll Half Marathon a year ago!

  15. I really like Emily Giffin. & I want to see that movie they made about one of her books... is it something borrowed? I forget.
    Anyway, I use active.com to find running events but I'm going to check out your site too! I'd love to run a half marathon some day... SOME day.
