Last January, I set a few yearly goals that I wanted to work on. Some I did, some I didn’t and some that I just forgot about. Maybe I set too many but I set them anyway.
Before I share with you my 2018 goals, I need to recap last year’s goals! These are the goals I set and how I did!
Be outside as a family. We were outside a lot, everything from snowshoeing, skiing, to swimming in the summer and biking. I coached my youngest in soccer so I was on the field with her for 10 weeks. In the fall, we kept riding our bikes into November as it was still that nice out!
Go camping and canoeing. Sadly, this one did not happen at all which was disappointing.
Use our Canada 150 National Park Pass. We did use our Canada 150 pass while in PEI but didn’t get down to Keji (hence not going camping).
Run more with my family. We didn’t really run much as a family 😦
Run more then last year (846 km). Nope! A car accident and heart problem stopped me from running a lot.
Volunteer at a few races in any capacity. I only got to volunteer at the Valley Harvest Marathon 10k as a pace bunny and I had a blast! Sure hope to do this more in 2018!
Run at least two half marathons. SO CLOSED ON THIS ONE! I ran a half in June and then two days before my 2nd half, I had some heart problems and was advised to stop running until further testing. Heartbroken for sure!
Go after PB’s. This. Did. Not. Happen.
Strength train/Cross train/Get Stronger. I did a good amount of cross training (yoga, cycling, swimming) but really need to do better at strength training.
Keep Blogging. I did keep blogging but sure lagged a lot.
Practice More Yoga. I didn’t practice more yoga and hoping to do more in 2018.
Be a wannabe cyclist. Check! Since getting a trainer for my bike I was able to do more biking. However the best biking was with my daughter’s in October and November.
Declutter the house. Yes, I started the process but man I just wish I could take a full week off to do a super clean and declutter of my house with no kids around. It’s amazing what you can get done on your own!
Set mini monthly goals. Yes, I did this every month. Most months I didn’t complete all goals but that’s okay. Setting goals gave me something to work towards rather then just doing nothing.
Challenge myself. I think so but kinda feeling like this goal should have been more specific.
Journal. I did some bullet journalling for running which I liked and started off the year with a gratitude book but gave up on that. I write in a book/journal for each of my daughters about life stuff and kept that up for the whole year. It’s something I plan to give them when they are older and hopefully they will enjoy reading about their childhood shenanigans :).
So those were my goals for 2017. Some specific, some open and vague. I do appreciate setting goals and working towards them and even not achieving some of them. I’m human and life happens so you can’t do everything the way you want to sometimes. You readjust your goals and go again!
Do you set goals for the year?
Ever give up on them, abandon them or adjust them?
What’s your number 1 goal for 2018?
