Its hard to believe it, but 2018 is already half over. It feels like I just wrote my 2018 goals, and here I sit reflecting on my progress halfway through the year.
1. Log 1,200 miles.
Progress Report: B+
As of yesterday, my 2018 mileage total is 564.3 miles. To be completely on track with my mileage goal, I would need to have a current total in the low 600s. While I am slightly behind, I have no doubt that I’ll catch up, especially as my mileage continues to increase with marathon training.
2. PR in all race distances.
Progress Report: C
Given that I have only run three races this year, two half marathons and a 10k, and two of those races were Disney races which I never run for time, I am not disappointed in my lack of progress with this goal. Despite what I initially thought at the beginning of the year, racing has not been a priority for me this year. That does not mean that I don’t want to push myself during the few races that I will still run this year, but my priorities have shifted to focusing on some of my other goals, and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that.
3. Lose 5 pounds, and keep it off.
Progress Report: F
I am currently only 0.4 pounds lighter than I was on January 1st. I’m not going to lie, my weight loss journey this year has been a roller coaster. I was just shy of reaching my goal back in April, but slowly the weight that I lost crept back on. I know that some of the weight that I have regained is muscle, but I will also admit that I haven’t been consistent with making healthy food choices. Making good food choices needs to be a much bigger focus for me during the second half of the year.
4. Focus on self care.
Progress Report: B
Although I have been much better about taking care of myself than in previous years, I also know that there is always room for improvement. I have been better about balancing my family’s needs with my own, and am much better at recognizing when I need to ask for more help.
5. Keep my family as a top priority.
Progress Report: A
I can confidently say that making time for my family has been one of my top priorities this year. Little man continues to grow right before my eyes, and I am trying my best to spend as much quality time with him and my husband as possible. Although this has meant spending less time on other things, including blogging, I don’t regret this choice whatsoever.
