I hope you all had a nice holiday. I’m currently in Georgia visiting my brother and his family, having a great time. Ironically, the weather here is better than the weather back home in California. I’ve been told it’s been as low as 34 degrees! It’s been about 70 here in GA. Gloomy and rainy at this times. While I’m looking forward to going home, I’m not looking forward to the cold.
It’s the last day of 2015! I say this every year but time went by way too fast. I have great memories or 2015 and look forward to making more in 2016.
Of course with the start of a new year, I like to set goals –haha, like many people. Some of my goals for 2016 include:
• continuing with my debt snowball — still have quite a way to go with that
• logging more miles
• reaching my daily water goals –I continue to struggle with this.
• cleaning my room using the KonMari method — I’ve been saying I need to do this for a long time but have been procrastinating
First race of 2016
My first race of 2016 is the Carlsbad Half Marathon. It’s going to be so cold! Normally I don’t like wearing a jacket at the start of a race because I warm up quickly but if this cold weather keeps up, I’ll have to get a throw away sweatshirt or something. I’ve heard the views along the course are beautiful, can’t wait to experience them. I’ll be running it with my friend, Amber.
1,000 miles challenge
Yep, 1,000 miles in one year. I wanted to do a similar challenge last year but the thought of logging 1,000 miles in a year intimidated me. Decided to just do it this year and think small goals. 1,000 miles in 366 days is roughly 2.74 miles per day. Totally doable! I’ll be walking and running.

2015 Goodreads Challenge
Done! My goal was 43 books and I read 46. Not sure what I’ll set my 2016 goal at yet, probably 50. Maybe 55. Or hell, maybe I’ll be adventurous and say 75! Haha.
I will be doing another round of Whole30 starting January 4, 2016. I enjoyed the holidays and all the wonderful food but now it’s time to get back to reality. I did well during my first round of Whole30 back in September but ended up regressing and going back to bad habits. I’m not perfect. I hope to do well again this round and stick with some of the eating habits. This time around I’m doing it with friends and one of my Facebook groups. There have been wonderful meal ideas already so I’ll be prepping for that once I get back to California.
Ok, I’m headed to the airport. Long day of traveling ahead. Happy New Year’s Eve!
