2013 Goals

I thought for a while about what goals I would like to set for 2013.  Coming across the Moon Jogger  challenge made it easier to commit to the 1000 mile goal.  I've already created my plan for January, and if I follow that plan, I will complete almost 90 miles of the 1000 mile challenge.

I am also committing to run 13 races in 2013.  These won't all be half marathon distances, but I am already registered for 5 half marathons this year.  I'm looking for others to register for, hopefully some local ones as well as maybe a little more traveling :)

Next I thought more about my meal planning and what we are eating at home.  I then decided that my next goal would be to make 250 home cooked meals (mainly dinners) over the next year.  I am mainly counting dinners (the meal that we eat as a family), but the occasional lunch will also count as long as it is something cooked- not sandwiches.  And considering that we only have 365 opportunities to have dinner as a family, if we have 250 home cooked meals, we will be eating about 68% of our dinners at home.

So, those are my goals for this coming year.  2012 was a great start for me, I really made changes to my activity level and made changes to what I ate.  Because of that I saw results, but more importantly, I felt results!  I feel so much better than I felt last year at this time.  2012 was a great year for those changes, and I am really looking forward to seeing the changes that come from my new goals for 2013!


  1. Hey! I think these are great goals! Random. Epic failure on my part: I registered for your sweet 5k without realizing that it took place in sept --- anyway I could still run it and get the medal or do I just chalk it up to a fail on my part and a donation for your LLS TNT campaign? thanks in advance!

    1. You are registered for the right race- the Sweet Cupcake is taking place in February! Thanks for participating!

  2. Look like you have some great goals for the year!
