~Halfway through 2016: Personal, Professional & Fitness Goals~

I know I'm not the only one wondering where the first half of 2016 went! Do you remember when time used to drag on? Not anymore!

I didn't formally write out my 2016 goals here for the world to see but I thought it would be a good time to check in with myself to see how I'm doing and how I want the rest of 2016 to go to reach my goals.


1) Read more books. I'm really enjoying Brie's virtual book club, even though I'm a book behind already! My goal is 1 per month since that's realistic!

2) Less screen time. In order to reach some of my other goals, I need to reduce my screen time. I've tried an alarm in the evening to help me which works sometimes but then I get sucked into something and hours pass. 

3) Go to bed early on my work nights. I'm tired. I'm a night owl which doesn't bode well when I have to wake up at 5:00am 3x a week. I MUST go to bed by 10-10:30pm on my work nights.

4) Stay in better contact with my family. Schedule monthly family dinners again


I've been able to enjoy an amazing work-life balance since going back to work part time last year. Zero complaints there and I hope to continue this schedule.

As for my business with Rodan + Fields, I've been very happy with how much my business has thrived so far. What I've been able to accomplish and grow very part-time is satisfying.

My goals for R+F for the rest of 2016:

1) Face my fears and move out of my comfort zone. It will be worth it.

2) "Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good"  I often struggle (in a few areas of life, not just my business) with spending so much time making something perfect that it never gets done. It doesn't have to be perfect.

Fitness & Nutrition

1) Half Marathon PR- I have a half marathon coming up in August (and possibly October) that I would love to PR. Which means I need to start running faster NOW. Seawheeze is not a flat course so I've got my work cut out for me. Hill training starts now!
2) Do a race I've never done before- all my races this year I've done in past years so it would be nice to try something new! I'm taking suggestions!

3) Take control of my eating- reduce sweets, meal plan for lunches and on the weekends. Wine on the weekends only.

4) Continue my water intake of 2L per day. This has been going well but I still struggle on the weekends sometimes.

What (local-ish) race do you suggest I add to my calendar this year?
When do you find time to read books? Share one of your goals with me!


  1. Have you run any of the MEC or 5 peak races? There is one in July for 5 peaks that I am thinking of running

  2. Wine on Bachelor nights too though right? ha ha!

  3. Great list of goals!! SeaWheeze is my current PR course. It's hilly but running at sea-level helps! Good luck with your training!!


I love reading your comments!
