A look back at my 2017 goals

Nearly a week into 2018 seems a little late to look back at my 2017 goals according to every other blogger out there, but it’s my blog and my rules. I did ok at my 2017 goals, but they were quite running focussed. And as you will know if you’ve read my 2018 goals, running became pretty painful this year thanks to a pesky injury. That’s my excuse anyway. So lets take a look at how I got on…

Join a running club. Yep! I found a local all-women’s running club which exceeded my expectations and made such a big difference to my running this summer.

Run a sub 2:15 half marathon. Nope, injuries meant this one did not happen.

Run a sub 30 at my local parkrunAgain, that pesky injury got in my way. Although to be fair, pre injury I didn’t work very hard towards it!

Do more yoga. Yep! I did this one. Towards the end of 2017 I was doing yoga about three times a week at the loveliest local studio which makes me feel really good.

Do more parkrunsNope. I’m not sure I even ran one parkrun in 2017!

Grow my blog. This didn’t happen. I’m not overly fussed about it although I’m sad I didn’t blog very much in 2017. I hope 2018 is a bit different.

Blog at least twice a week. Even this seemingly small goal wasn’t achieved. Too much screen time at work left me exhausted for screen time when I got home and at weekends. Hopefully I’ll do better this year.

Return of the cookbook challenge. As I said in my 2018 goals, I don’t think this happened as I set so much pressure on myself to cook, photo and blog all these recipes. So it didn’t happen. Plus I ended up eating a lot of frozen pizza in 2017!

Save money. We did this! Woop! Our upstairs is now replastered and painted and almost finished, plus we’ve got some gorgeous new fitted wardrobes that make getting dressed a *joy* in the mornings. I can’t wait to start downstairs!

Clean up my diet. Er, no. See above re: frozen pizza. However, I did got on a nutrition course which I’m planning to blog about separately.

Finish my quilt. Pretty much! It’s useable now and just needs the decorative stitches to be done.

Learn to use my camera. Nope! In fact, I feel like I barely took any photos in 2017. I hope to do better in 2018!

Did you set any goals for 2017? How did you get on?
