Last week I drank enough coffee for two of me. That’s not an accomplishment, but sometimes it happens. I also did not run at all. Again…sometimes it happens. Things I did accomplish this week:
Made this recipe which you should vote for if you want 😜. Also completely forgot about this when I first published this post…so if for some reason you came back and are thinking “I don’t remember this…?” It’s not you, it’s me.
2 strength workouts and a hike. This was plenty for how I was feeling last week. Sometimes a hike is better than a run.
Registered for classes. Actually only one class, maybe my last one ever. TBD. Also…worked…you know those weeks when you were busy, so you must have accomplished something, but you can’t remember what? Yeah, it was one of those. Oh, I read a bunch of research papers. So that’s something.
Did not kill my baby plants. Although, as you can see, some of them haven’t sprouted. Time to try those again and see if the seeds are too old or it was just me.
Made my copycat TJ’s peanut butter. Not a very good copy because I didn’t have whole flax seeds (I used flax meal) and I think it needed more salt. Better luck next time!
Quarterly goals review
Just so we’re clear, the goals are yearly but the review is quarterly…is there a clearer way to say that? Hmm. Anyway:
One sentence per day: still on track, as you can see by my super high-tech tracker. I think my minimum so far is actually three sentences. My longest entry so far is one page, which is about 200-250 words; because yes, I’m the kind of person who makes a word count estimate for handwriting. And keeps track of the min/max lengths of my journal entries.
Running a 38K trail race: Ok, so the problem with setting a race goal this far in advance is that it gives you plenty of time to change your mind before you have to register. I may have changed my mind every time I thought about it in the past month. But it’s still a feasible goal because, like I said, I could hike the whole thing. Anyway, I made progress on at least one part of this goal: taking a wilderness first aid course. I wasn’t able to register for the actual course because of scheduling conflicts, but I did buy the book that’s used in the course, so hey, at least I’ll learn something.
20 new-to-me trails: I’ve made it to one so far – the one we hiked this weekend, actually. But there is plenty of time in the year for 19 more – and I made myself a spreadsheet, as one does, so no excuses for not being able to think of where to go.
Are you a spreadsheet person?
What did you accomplish this week/month/quarter?
