October 2012 Recap

I have now been home for 2 months and I am loving the change of pace.

#1 (Run a half marathon) Done!!! I completed the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon with a time of 2:33:47! You can read my recap here. (and I have signed up for a half in April of 2013!)

#2 (Learn 12 new recipes) I did quite a bit of cooking in the last 2 days, I just need to share the recipes.

#3 (Put my college pictures into photo albums) Its time to print.

#4 (Create a race scrapbook) I need to buy more page inserts!

#5 (Make 12 time or money donations to various charities and/or nonprofits.) In October I odn’t know that I made a specific donation, other than I keep going through my room and finding stuff I just don’t wear or use, and therefore donate it to our local clothing place.

#6 (Learn to blog!) This past week I’ve been blogging quite a bit. I recently hit 100 posts and am thinking about what (if any) changes I should make.

#7 (Finish the New Rules of Lifting For Women program.) Maybe I’ll start this again soon….Once its officially too cold for walks outside (I don’t like worrying about ice and falling) I’ll get a gym membership where I’ll be able to lift.

#8 (Remember to be Thankful.) I am very thankful for the people in my life.

#9 (Get a better handle on finances.) Did you know Verizon now has a “Share Everything” plan for families with data? Finally!

#10 (Get least 10 minutes of fitness each day.) I’m going to yoga about 4 times a week and on November 4 I start a Holiday Challenge where I’ll be going 5 times a week!

#11 (Do 5 minutes of clean up each day.) I spent quite a bit of time on Sunday cleaning and re-arranging, I no longer have cardboard boxes in my room!

#12 (Take the time to breathe.) Thankfully Lakes Fit Yoga takes care of my needs!
