2017 Monthly Check In: August and September

Ice_cream_Sundae_Party

As you may have noticed, I didn’t end up writing a goal recap for August ūüôĀ September was just a really busy month, and I ended up falling behind on several fronts, so now you’re getting August and September rolled into one.¬†Here’s how I progressed on my 2017 goals in the last two months: I have been completely missing my¬†10 pushups / 20 split squats / 30 plank leg lifts¬†routine, and it really shows when it comes to my pushups. I realized that when I focused on run streaking every day, I dropped my 10/20/30; when I focused on 10/20/30, …

2017 Monthly Goal Check In: May

Cinco_De_Mayo_Guacamole_Cake

Whoops, June has been super busy and so I’m more than two weeks late in getting this check in done! I’ll keep it short, but want to stay accountable by still talking about my goal progress in May. Toward the end of the month, I fell off the bandwagon with my morning routine of¬†10 pushups, 20 lunges, and 30 plank leg lifts. About halfway through the month, I switched from lunges to bodyweight split squats, and I liked that change (it felt like it made my routine faster), but this one has been a bit hard for me to sustain …

2017 Monthly Goal Check In: April

Seabrook_Island_Beach

This was a bit of an odd month for me. I had a week of vacation, followed by a week of being incredibly sick, and all that really threw me off my schedule! I’m really looking forward to getting back on track in the month of May. I stuck with my daily morning routine¬†of 10 pushups, 20 lunges, and 30 plank leg lifts about half the days I was on vacation, and completely forgot about it the other days. And then, to make things worse, I got so sick the following week that I continue to skip it. Oops! I …

2017 Monthly Goal Check In: March

Change_A_Life_Pig

Well, I skipped doing a monthly goal check in last month because of my health scare. No news to report there, but tomorrow I finally have my appointment with the neurologist to piece together¬†all my wonky test results… so tomorrow’s basically judgment day! I’ll let you know what I find out. In the meantime, how about I get back on track with a progress check in on my 2017 goals? My morning routine is still going strong, and I haven’t missed a day yet! (Though there have been a few days where, due to whatever city I was in / …

My Top Books of (the second half of) 2016

Today I finished my 100th book of the year, meeting my goal!¬†And now I’m already diving into my first book of 2017, Ann Patchett’s Commonwealth. I’m so happy to see your thoughtful comments on my top books of the first half of 2016, and that inspired me to get the second half done quickly too. Hope you enjoy these books I enjoyed between July and December! Grit: Passion, Perseverance, and the Science of Success, by Angela Duckworth. I’ve read about Duckworth’s research in many other articles and books, so I was really excited for her own book – and it …
