December Goals

It’s the last month of 2016, whoop, whoop! Looking back at the last eleven months, I’ve taken some time to review the goals I’ve set {and reset}. Some I accomplished, some I’m still working on and some are pretty much out the door.


This past year I was challenged with a few injuries, some that sidelined me from running but I kept going anyway with cycling and yoga. I’ll recap more later this month but I wanted to share a few goals for December.


Our girls are both at a busy age, though I’m sure every age can be busy. Since last February when my husband started working in Nova Scotia and not travelling to PEI, we’ve got to spend way more time together. Even more so in the last few months with a regular shift-work schedule.

Our weekends are jammed packed but always rewarding. I’m looking forward to some time off over the holidays to just be with my family, get outside hopefully in the snow and be active together….thinks skiing and snow shoeing.

Running & Workouts

Bet you guess that one was coming 🙂 My goal is to run over 57 km this month. I’m also hoping to run as much outside as I can which can be tricky when your husband works shift work. I do like going for “runches” and try to get out for a run with my runny buddy Krystol once a week.

I’ll be going to yoga and barre classes as much as my work schedules allows me to. I also have a handful of soccer games this month, so does my husband! Oh and I just registered for Maritime Race Weekend next September. I’m confident 2017 will be the year I finally get to run that half marathon course.


I renewed my blog, so you’ve got me for another year. Actually, I’ve had a number of new followers to the blog…so welcome and thanks for following along. If you ever want me to write about something specific to running, let me know. It’s always fun when someone asks you to write about something specific and I get to connect with your readers.


Plain and simple: I need more sleep! Young children equal little sleep but so does staying up too late! So, I’m going to try hard to get more sleep in December!

Though I didn’t get through all of my yearly goals that I set out back in January, I did accomplished a lot. Now it’s time to determine what goals I want to accomplish in 2017, write them down and make it happen!

Are you thinking about 2017 goals?

Do you do New Year Resolutions?

Anything you want to accomplish in December that’s on your current goal list?

    I don’t do NYs Resolutions. They’ve never worked for me in the past, they aren’t going to start now. And this coming year is going to be whacky, so just surviving intact seems like a good goal.

  2. So glad you opted to renew. I enjoy reading your posts and can’t wait to see you run that race next year! I’ve never had an interest in doing a New Year Resolution and I am okay with that. I do need more sleep, but as you said, that is par for the course. And I don’t help it by staying up either. Here’s to a wonderful New Year!

  3. yay for renewal!! everyone (whoever reads me) has me for another year as well. I always debate it when the time comes if I should continue, lol!

    Looking forward to another year of your life!!!

  4. Hurray! So glad you will be blogging at least another year. I always love to keep up with your adventures… It has been fun getting to know you better through social media.
