Happy Belated 2014

I am just horrible about keeping this bog up to date but one of my 2014 goals (not resolutions) is to keep this updated more often. I always make goals, life happens, and goals don't always get accomplished and that's ok. Let's review what I planned to do in 2013 and how that turned out.

~January: Paint the kitchen table and chairs and do backsplash in kitchen- still hasn't happened haha
~February: Run entire 15k Gasparilla Race and take sewing class- only walked a little and have taught myself how to sew
~March: Complete Romp to Stomp in Colorado and enjoy the mountains- we enjoyed the mountains but chose not to do the Romp to Stomp and spend more time with family. It was the right decision.
~April: Sew myself a summer outfit- Started making dog collars instead!
~May: Visit the Everglades- Still hasn't happened
 ~June: Take a mountain biking road trip- We got a new puppy instead haha
~July: Be a good training walk leader and actually doing the training for the 3-Day- I did train...some
~August: Try a new outdoor adventure- I did a triathlon!
~September: Have a second Guide dog pup in training- We brought home Westen in May or June (bad puppy mom for not knowing)
~October: Have a successful Tampa 3-Day- I am very pleased with how the final Tampa 3Day went, not please that it was the final one though
~November: Complete 60 miles in San Diego- Done! I'll try to remember to post about this
~December: Start a new hobby- I taught myself how to quilt! and I'm learning how to box which is on my 30 before 30 list!

And here are the "anytime in 2013 goals"

~Turn Maggie In For Training- Done...sniff*
~Get rid of blue couch!- Done!!!!!!
~Hang all artwork in house- Did this finally!
~Complete craft corner of office- Hubby and his Dad helped finish this and it's great!
 ~Complete the Spartan Challenge in under 1 hour and 15 minutes- Done in April!

Overall I'd say this was a very successfull year for goals accomplished and even those I didn't do. I'm proud of the things I have learned and had to deal with and ready for a wonderful 2014. Speaking of 2014, I have a few goals. I debated putting a goal a month like I did for 2013 but with the uncertainty of life I'm just going to make 14 goals for 2014. Here they are:
  1. Get Lucky Paws (my collar et al business) off the ground and running
  2. Complete the St. Anthony's Triathlon with Kathy (I am her guide for all 3 disciplines this year yikes!)
  3.  1 week juice cleanse- I have been wanting to do this or a while and it's on my 30 before 30 list
  4. Sub 30 minute 5k
  5. Learn how to box- I already started this but have a lot to learn still
  6. 10 real pushups
  7. Blog more regularly
  8. Redecorate the master bedroom

    5. a few more 10k races
    6. The rest of the races will be decided on soon and I'll try to post about this throughout the year
  10. Read 5 books- I always want to read more and so now I'm going to make it a tangible goal
    1. Gone Girl- Everyone says it's a must read
    2. The Monuments Men- coming out on film this year and I want to read it before I see it
    3. Allegiant- I've read the first and am almost done with the second of this trilogy
    4.  Taking suggestions for others
  11. Learn a new life skill/hobby
  12. Do another sprint triathlon
