Try 30 new recipes.
In February, I tried a few new recipes including:
- Goat cheese salad
- Ina Garten's Pork Tenderloin - mine came out a little dry, so I'll try it again in the slow cooker
Build endurance and strength.
I'm still going to my favorite strength-training class. I continue to update my workout playlist to encourage me to do continue adding cardio. Good music super helpful motivation for working out.
I also recently found a podcast I love. I've been listening to it on my commute, when cooking, cleaning, and I listened to it on x1.5 speed while working out. It is fun! Check it out! It's the Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey podcast. It is a show hosted by a woman who interviews her friends. It is a fun, encouraging show. I've really enjoyed it.
My husband and I had the opportunity to travel. I had a work-related trip that took me to Chicago, IL. We went up a day early and stayed a day late, so we could have a little vacation together. It was fun! We went to Chicago last August for another work-related trip. I'll share my thoughts on the windy city in the future.
Since I went on vacation, I had some time to read. I read in the airport and on the plane until I got motion sickness. I started and finished For the Love by Jen Hatmaker. It was a funny book that kind of resembled a printed blog. Each chapter covered a different topic, but all the book was about giving grace and mercy to combat the impossible standards we place on ourselves and on others. She is a hilarious writer. I've heard her speak twice, and her writing style is very much her voice.
These are my broad goals for 2016. What goals are you working on in 2016?
