December was a crazy, busy, but wonderful month. The holidays, Christmas parties, my sisters baby shower, a PR and a new job. Great way to end out 2012.
Miles Planned/Actual: 125.17/128 I think this is right. I’m actually contemplating getting off of dailymile and just sticking to manual training in my believe i am journal. I know I cut a few planned runs short by a mile or 2 so I am guessing on the 128.
Cross Training Planned/Actual: 7/ I didn’t really have a plan this month. I just wanted to get to pilates/yoga when I could and I was home for 2 weeks-so those 6 of those 7 classes were done before heading home to Mobile.
PR’s: 1! An almost 2 minute PR at Kiawah.
New to Me Cross Training: 1/1 I tried crossfit…and LOVED it. If only I had more money and more time!
Challenges Completed: 12 in 2012! I am so glad that I was able to finish out the 12 in 2o12 challenge. I loved having a big goal for the year and finally finishing it in December. I didn’t quite finish out the instagram holidayaday challenge. I kept forgetting to go and look at what each post was supposed to be. Oops.
Current Aches/Pains: my right hip has been bothering me since Kiawah. I’ve been to the chiropractor once and had 2 sports massages and foam rolled like it’s my job. It doesn’t always hurt when I run, and doesn’t always hurt after. Not a lot of rhyme or reason. Who knows.
Current Book: yep. Let that slip right by. AGAIN. The month just flies by. I read PLENTY of blogs and magazines though. I swear, I will finish Gone Girl by the end of January. I mean, come on. It’s been on my list for months. I just need a good hour or two to settle down and get into a book. I’m terrible.
Current Obsession: sticking to my goals and plan. And Downton Abbey of course.
Current Drink: Kona Kola, Grape, Lemon-Lime NUUN.
Current Like: my new planner, my new scale, Believe I am journal, and my Say it, Do it bracelet from my good friend Corey. The beginning of the year is about focus and goals for me.
Current Dislike: The issue with Martell Malone. Court last week was tough and knowing there is still another trial ahead AND that he is out of jail is disturbing. Also hate that I am currently sick. When will I learn to slow down?
Current Treat: I’m done with those for a bit. After getting on the scale-treats are down to once a week again since the holidays are over.
Current Excitement: MY NEW JOB!! This has been a goal of mine for quite some time but I obviously couldn’t blog about it. I will still get to call on my dermatologist customers and travel a bit, BUT I will no longer be in pharmaceuticals. I’m VERY happy with that. I’m sure yall know our healthcare system is in the toilet and pharm sales has taken a huge hit over the past few years. I was at my company for 5 years, so it was hard to leave my coworkers, but I am SO EXCITED about this new opportunity-and hopefully I will get to see some of you that live in Alabama and Tennessee!
How was your December? End the year on a high note? Do you have to travel for work? What’s your favorite new thing lately?
