The End of January is Near….

That means it’s been a month (well 4 weeks) since I started my new 2013 goals!  I feel like I’m doing well, but I’m totally expecting myself to get burnt out very soon!  The tasks feel daunting sometimes, but the achievement of my goals are very rewarding to me personally.  Let’s see how I did during week 4:

*Jan 19 - 00:05*Goals as a runner:
1) Run at least 14 miles a week (2 miles a day) for the year.

My total mileage for the week was 20 miles! I was sans running partner again this week. I got out there anyway.  I skipped my usual Thursday evening run as it was extremely cold and windy.  Our apartment gets pretty chilly too in this weather and the couch with hot cocoa and a nice blanket were calling my name.  I made up for it with my 10 miler in the powder fresh snow Saturday morning though.  Felt great!

Personal:
1) Have a business plan in place by June.
There was no sewing lesson this week, so I’m really anxious to get back to the machine on Friday!  My mother-in-law moved to China 2 years ago and has her machine in storage here.  She offered to give it to me.  I’m anxious to see it and learn about it.  They will be back for a visit around Chinese New Year.

Mommy & Housewife:
1) Organize one thing in the house each week for a year.

I’ve been cleaning the top of our dresser (the current dumping grounds) this week.  It’s like a never ending pile of stuff I don’t know where to put!  On a good note, the Kitchen Aid mixer my mother in law gave me when they moved was finally taken out of the box and placed in the kitchen cart.  I have decided to purge my cake dome.  I don’t use it much or rarely make cakes that high anymore.

2) Clean at least one thing in our home each day.
The place is clean….that’s that. 🙂

3) Finish cross stitching all of our darn stockings!
I’ve been keeping this up!  I’ve been finding it therapeutic, but my wrist is getting better at telling me my limits.
