2014 Mission check-in
Mission #1: Make an effort to eat more fruits and vegetables.
Action Plan: Always have fruits and vegetables cleaned, cut up, and ready for consumption.
Action Plan: Choose healthier options when snacking.
Mission #1 went better in August. Believe it or not we ate lots of fruits and vegetables while we were on vacation. Plus I went back to work this month and I always eat fruits and vegetables with my lunch.
Mission #2: Accept and embrace that my best is good enough.
Action Plan: Stop comparing myself to others and compare myself to the person I was yesterday.
Action Plan: Define my own success and measure it by what I am able to do.
Mission #2 is still where I want it to be. I remind myself daily that I am my only competition.
Mission #3: Run 1400 miles in 2014.
Action Plan: Run.
Action Plan: Run some more.
Mission #3 is moving very slowly. My tumble didn't help with this mission as I took a solid week off because I really banged myself up. 35.84 miles run in August (810.19 miles to go).
Mission #4: Run happy.
Action Plan: Run training runs and races with friends as often as I can.
Action Plan: Listen to my heart and not the beeps on my Garmin.
Action Plan: Be thankful that I have been blessed with a healthy body that allows me to run.
Mission #4 is golden! I am still loving the run and enjoying time spent with friends.
Mission #5: Do other workouts in addition to running.
Action Plan: Find workouts I enjoy and actually do them.
Action Plan: Participate in some monthly fitness challenges.
Mission #5 went, umm, well it didn't really go much at all. I walked 6.81 miles and biked 7.58 miles. Now that I have healed from my fall, I need to get back to this. I was really doing good at the beginning of the year. Not quite sure what happened since then...
I really can't be disappointed in August. There were a few challenges thrown my way. I just had to embrace them and keep my "things happen" attitude.
