June Wrap-Up and July Goals

Ah, another month gone, another goals wrap-up post - and June did NOT go as smoothly in terms of goals as I hoped it would. That said, it wasn’t quite the total failure that it could have been.

So Magpie’s Gonna Run a 5k… Again.

So I know I said in my June goals post that fitness was on the docket, but that I wasn’t going to follow any set plan or anything. Well, turns out I’m a liar. I’ve started a Couch to 5k program.

As part of my plan for getting more consistent around here, I’ve decided to make it my goal to post a wrap-up of each month - this way I can sort of look at each month in review, identify what I accomplished and what needs improvement.

2016 New Years Resolution Postmortem

Another year, another set of goals not fully met. I know that sounds really pessimistic, but that’s just how these things go - I’m not a resolution maker who actually expects to fully complete each. Instead, I make resolutions with the goal of making progress, and using those goals, however unattainable, to improve myself or… Continue reading 2016 New Years Resolution Postmortem
