March Accomplishments

Here we are again! Meeting to end one month and begin another. I am beyond excited that April has arrived! It's my birthday month! Yes, I'm one of those girls. I absolutely adore my birthday. Anywho, let's see how I did on my goals for the month of March. I'm linking up with MeghanLoriMeghan, and Whitney again to share what I've accomplished for the month. Here are my posts for January, February, and the year

  • Be happy. I am utterly and divinely happy. 
  • Relax more. Does skipping the gym, eating pizza, and drinking SkinnyGirl Sangria on a Sunday night to watch lots of TV with M count? Yes, yes I think it does.
  • Write. I wrote my first article for a new freelance job I'm doing. I can't wait to share all about it! And I wrote another story for Chicken Soup. 
  • Read at least one book a month. I read 2: Girls in White Dresses and I've Got Your Number.
  • Cook a new recipe once a month. (Pan Fried Brussel Sprouts, Oven-Fried Chicken)
  • No shop months. I was allowed to shop this month, so I did and got great deals on running shorts from Under Armour. 
  • Give once a month. I donated $100 to Colon Cancer Research for the NYRR race I ran on Sunday. 
Extra Accomplishments for the Month:
  • Met with a breeder, and another breeder with really cute puppies...
  • Stuck to my half marathon training plan by supplementing running for biking, per doctor's orders
  • Did a 13.12 mile training run under 2 hours!
  • Crossed #11, #13, #18, #23, and #25 off my 24 Before 24 List
  • Ran a PR for a 4 mile race
  • Finished my writing goals
  • Started a freelance writing job! 

P.S. You can find me over at Kat's blog today talking about my love of photography and aspirations of taking photos like hers!
