Goal Recap for the month of April

I don't think I checked in for March... Sorry! I'm going to do a quick check in on my yearly goals...

1. Read 50 Books (I have already started my tab up top to keep track of my books.)
I am currently reading book # 55, I have upped my goal to 100.

2. Run in 3 races
This past weekend I ran my first race. I participated in the Illinois Marathon Relay and ran 6 miles. My time was just about 1:13 something. I'm not 100% sure what it was because of when I started and stopped my timer. But our relay group completed the marathon in 4:36:30! Well under our 5 hour goal/estimate. I ended up about 5 minutes faster than previous paces would have come out to for 6 miles.
I'm also doing a 5K June 2nd. The Color Run. I can't wait.
I plan on doing the 5K in my town on July 3rd and the Zoo Run Run again in Sept as well as another 5K in November.

3. Start (and stick with) another method of exercise besides running. Maybe yoga?
I have been consistent with my sit ups and push ups. I ordered a yoga DVD and it arrived a couple days before the race but I didn't want to risk being sore for the race so I started it yesterday.

4. Organize my life, and our home better.
I have been working at this. I totally re-organized our kitchen and the office. I also got new dishes!

5. Make 2 new recipes a month.
I know I did 2 this month but I'm totally blanking on what the second was. One was Strawberry Lemonade Bars. They were just ok. I made them for Easter.

6. Be a better friend.
I'm working at it. It is hard with our schedules to always get time to chat or hang out unfortunately. But I am having a book exchange party this coming Saturday that I'm super excited about.

7. Be a better wife and mom.

8. Be happier.

9. Finally re-do our bathroom.

10. Take a vacation with J. Just J.
We would like to have something booked within the next 3 weeks. Still trying to figure it out. We are leaning towards a cruise.

11. Learn more about photography.

12. Work harder (in all aspects of life).
I'm trying. I think that working out now is inspiring me. I'm pulling my new dedication towards that into the rest of my life.

13. Work at starting this business I have had in my head for too long.
This is being put on the back burner for a bit. Big things are happening at work which I will get into once they have been sorted out.

More soon. I have some book reviews coming up! :)
