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 was hit or miss in November.  The problem was that we were in PA for Thanksgiving and my mother's house has lots of candy laying around and we made sugar cookies!!

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 continues to be as it should be!

Mission #3: Run 1400 miles in 2014.
Action Plan: Run.
Action Plan: Run some more.
Mission #3 is just not going to happen this year.  It's okay though, if we don't set "missions" we don't try and succeed.  53.1 miles run in November (593.49 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 spot on and I love every minute of it!

Before the Inland trail 1/2 marathon in early November

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 well....sigh.....um.....I walked 4.06 miles....pathetic!!  The good news is that I am doing a December Challenge that involves cross training so next month's review shouldn't look so bad in this area!!

November was definitely a very light month for me.  I am okay with that.  We shall see what December brings.
Keep running, you're simply the best, and you inspire me!!

  1. I'd like to eat more vegetables, too! If I eat some at breakfast, like a sweet potato, that gives me a head start on my goal.
