Did I set January Goals?

I really have NO idea!

Which means that I have to go back looking through my blog in search of January goals.  I mean it’s mid February already, I probably should have figured this out.  I know that I did set my 2014 intentions with an exciting new bucket list.  But can’t remember any January, or February for that matter goals.




Search complete…Hope you enjoyed the view.

It seems that I never set January and February goals, which is why I can’t remember what they are : )  I’m thinking that I do want to keep going with the monthly goals this year, which means that I need to get thinking. 




Meanwhile, I will just share a recipe with you.  You all know how much I LOVED eating Flax and Chia Bowls last winter!




Which got me thinking…what if I subbed in sweet potato instead of banana?




The result was today’s breakfast, and it was really flavorful, filling, and satisfying!  Sadly, I have no finished pictures to share (the ones above are from the night before), because they don’t really do this breakfast any justice.  Like last winter, I’ve been running intervals around the indoor track for cardio during the cold and dark mornings.  Tuesday it was descending ladders and this morning, I threw some intervals into the end of my run.

This breakfast always hits the spot after a tough morning workout!



Sweet Potato, Chia, and Flax Bowl



1/2 cooked sweet potato, mashed

12 g chia seeds

1 heaping spoonful of ground flax

1 tsp or more pumpkin pie spice

1/2 cup almond milk

Optional: honey, agave, or sweetener of your choice



-Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir well.

-Place in fridge over night.

-Serve the next morning topped with berries or granola.



And…Let’s just call these my Mid February and March Goals

1. Decrease Sugar Intake

2. Build Strength

3. Play Tennis

4. Sign up for Races



Yup, that’s the gym parking lot this morning.  Yuck!

  1. Oh, that needs to be in my breakfast rotation! I never think to have sweet potatoes early in the morning, but they’re perfect 🙂 I’m with ya on the reduce sugar intake… mine has been outta control. Time to reign it in, too!

      • The Get Lucky in Chicago on March 15th. Should be interesting since I have been running much at all and my running buddy is a running fool right now. I told her she is going to have to leave me behind. I would hate to slow her down!!

      • Fun!
        I just got invited to a 7am St Patty’s day in the city that day. I may be one of those drunk people with a mimosa on the sidelines…ha ha!

      • LOL! I will look for you then. I hope someone is passing free beer at aid stations! 🙂
