I miss you dearly and look forward to your return.
P.S. Thank you kindly for today’s sweet, sweet teaser of what’s to come, it makes your absence a little more bearable.
Sorry for any of you dealing with winter today but hallelujah for 58* and blue skies! I love a good snow storm and all the coziness and excitement that comes with it but Spring is truly where it’s at.
Dining al fresco
Seriously, I sat on the back porch and had to take my jacket off. I may have gotten a little sunburn. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh
The painting is coming right along, if you are in the Cville area you’ll have to stop by for our Grand Opening festivities on February 19th to take a gander. There will be free demo exercise classes, food & drink (Kefir Water Soda!), talks about Chiropractic care, and a special guest presentation on eating real food. Who knows, maybe we’ll even throw in a door prize or two! Go ahead and put it on your calender but don’t worry, I will keep reminding you as it gets closer!
This afternoon I am heading back to the gym (I went for Pilates Reformer this morning) for a “Goal Setting” session with a trainer.
My month pass included two sessions with a trainer but first I must set my goals. Hmmm, I am not exactly sure what to tell him.
“Tone up” is so generic…
Can I tell him that I want him to kick my ass? Really, I want a challenging workout that uses all of my muscles at the same time, just for the hell of it. I only have a few more days on my pass to fit in 3 sessions, whoops and yep, I am a total procrastinator. It has gotten better over the (nearly 13 years!) time I have been with Tate, the man’s a serious go-getter, but sometimes I revert to my old habits.
My plan for the afternoon was to set some goals then take a yoga class but I am thinking I will trade yoga for a walk, it’s SO nice out it would be a shame to be in a windowless studio.
Speaking of goals, I have some lofty ones for February, including
- get health insurance (I know, I know, it’s preposterous that I don’t have it but I was out of the country and I am a procrastinator!)
- walk 100 miles (anyone care to join me? It’s only 3.5 miles a day!)
- run 30 miles
- start teaching exercise classes
- practice lots of yoga
- begin choreographing my dance for May (more on this soon)
- start my garden
- eat lots of amazing food with amazing people
Do you have any goals for the coming month? Setting goals can bring you Clarity for Success!

My first goal is to keep up with Couch 2 5K so I can run a 5K in under 30 minutes this spring. Go me!
Awesome goal! Do you have a race planned? Keep me updated on your progress, I’ve heard great things about Couch 2 5k.
dana @ my little celebration
Hey! I may try and join you on the 100 miles this month! Great goal, as well as the one to “eat lots of amazing food with amazing people.” That sounds delicious AND fun.
I look forward to hearing what this choreography for your dance is all about. I heart dancing!
Have a great day and enjoy your spring-like weather!!
Walk with me! 🙂
My son was just accepted into the PhD program at UVA!! If he chooses UVA he will need a chiropractor in Charlottesville. I am so thrilled to know that you are there!
Yay! I wish him lots of luck and hope to see him here!
My February goal is 110 miles, and I hope to make some of those miles faster than walking. Like jogging. Not quite running. YET! I did pretty well with my January goals, considering the crappy weather we had. Indoor workouts help bridge the gap, but I’d much rather be outdoors. Today is not so gorgeous here in southern WV. Sunny, yes, but wow, what a lot of wind! And it’s getting colder as the day goes on. I have a date with the elliptical after dinner.
110 miles, awesome Debbi! Go get it!
Start training for the Ukrops Monument Avenue 10K (in Richmond)
I just looked it up and am considering signing up myself! Good luck with training!
You can absolutely tell the trainer to kick your ass! In fact, my trainer often asks me, “Do you just want me to kick your butt today?”
And that’s a long list of goals for February. You’ll be busy! 🙂
ooh, I bet I could walk 100 miles considering my walk to/from work…the days I bike from home, I might count those miles too. 😉
With -22*F windchill, I dearly miss sweet Spring as well.
-22* windchill? What the…I didn’t know it did that in AZ!
Apparently in Flagstaff it does! Flagstaff is at a high elevation, so it gets pretty cold here. Fortunately, winter is shorter than in Utah, where it lasts Oct-Apr [spring & fall don’t exist] — oh wait, you know!
Wasn’t that weather gorgeous! Wow…excited for your big plans this month! I know you can achieve it all =D Oh, and I like how you broke down the 100 mile walk thing, very cool!
Thanks for the vote of confidence!
