GOALS {version 2.0}...

It's been just over a year since I posted my S.M.A.R.T. goals. I figured it was time to check in on them and write some new ones!!!

July 19, 2012 SMART GOALS

 My eventual weight goal is 160 ~ Well...I blew this one out of the water. As of today I weight 144.4 lbs.


Jingle Bell 5K Run/Walk ~ This didn't go quite as planned. Jason and I got to the race about 20 minutes after it started. We ended up not walking or running it.

Spartan Race 3K Obstacle Course ~ This also didn't go as planned...thank you shoulder surgery :( The good thing is we were allowed to defer our entry one time so we are scheduled to participate on August 2nd, 2014!!

Size 12 ~ Well, passed this one too! Whoop! I'm about a size 8 to 10 depending on the clothes. I even have one size 6.

Less Doctors ~ Again, shoulder surgery kind of got in the way with this one too! Leading up to the surgery I was doing well ~ only getting a massage once a month, acupuncture two times a month, and chiropractic two times a month. So...that's $125 in copays alone. That's not counting prescriptions, other doctors, and anything else. I'm not sure I really met this goal or that I ever will. I hope to get off more of my prescriptions.

August 5th, 2013 SMART Goals

{weight & inches}
Lose inches & not worry about the scale ~ I feel like I'm not going to lose much more weight but I've been saying that for a long time! I'm 5'4" and according to weight watchers a healthy range for women who are my height is 117 lbs - 146 lbs. While I am not overly concerned about the number, I most certainly want to continue to tighten up & lose some inches.

Climb Mt. St. Helens ~ Phew! It's scary to write that down. Jason and I have been talking about it for a few months now and we have decided we are going to do this in 2014. We tried back in 2008 but were unsuccessful because of many reasons. Mainly, we were out of shape but it certainly didn't help that we ran out of water 1/3 of the way up. It was the hottest day of the year the day we climbed! You have to buy your passes in February so we picked a random weekend and it was a roaster. We are in way WAY better shape now and are planning it out about a year in advance and we WILL do this!!

Spartan Sprint 2014 ~ Since we weren't able to participate this year we are signed up for next year! Here's to hoping surgery isn't in either of our future's!!

Wear a 2 piece swimsuit in public ~ There. I said it. I want to wear a 2 piece. Not a little string bikini....probably something more along the lines of an Athleta suit. Regardless of I think by next year I'll have the confidence and body to pull this off. We shall see!!

Less doctors ~ Whatever that may mean ;-) I am most definitely someone who historically goes to doctors a lot. Though, I'm not sure if I should consider massage, chiro and acupuncture doctors in the traditional sense. Those three people have done more for me than almost any ever doctor, ever.

The future ~ I am not sure what path I want to go down. Do I stay? Do I change? Follow my heart? Follow my gut? Are they the same thing??

I am excited to see what my future holds.

Fingers crossed {it's good}...
