At the beginning of the year, I set four personal goals to accomplish in 2011. Here's where I stand with nine months down :
I added up my miles last week and realized I was just four short of 365, so I knocked this one out on Thursday. Once I started training for my first half marathon, I figured I would breeze through this goal and be able to increase it to 500. But then I got out of the habit and started doing more Bar Method instead. Recently, I have been trying to ease back into it and am hoping to finish the Nike Women's Half Marathon in San Francisco on October 16th. I am sure I'll have a lot more to say on this soon...
Seriously, of all my goals, if I get this one accomplished I'll be the most shocked. It is the only one that really seemed impossible at the beginning of the year. I've been making major progress thanks to Bar Method. Now I just need to get brave enough to show the after photo...
Somehow I'm getting through this stuff. There is no way it will be gone on January 1st, but my stash will be smaller. And the point of this goal was just to get in the mentality that craft stuff is to be used, not hoarded, and that's been a success.
Moving right along on this one. But 16 loaves? That's more than one a week. I'm spending Thanksgiving with my family this year and hopefully they won't mind if our meal consists of turkey and six different types of bread.
So, yes, progress all around. As I type this, I am already starting to think about next years goals. And that is a major fail. I've got 93 days to crank the rest of these out and a resolve not to worry about what will follow.
I am heading out of town soon! GREAT news for me, not so great for the shop. If you are interested in having a fall book or anything else before mid-October, please order TODAY! I'll be doing one final ship out tomorrow. And also, I added a few more fall bonus packs. They are the exact same as the first round, except for the outer envelope.
