2017 Goals


I am not one that usually sets resolutions for each year. I like to set a few goals for the year and once I achieve them, I add some goals to that. In 2016 there were a lot of medical expenses, small trips and other odds and ends that made it a very tough year. This year I have set a few goals to start with and also a few long term goals as well.

  1. Pay off Medical Debt from 2016

Between  different procedures that my husband and I both had our medical expenses were stretched, so my goal for this year is to pay off this debt however it can be done.


2. Take care of my injury in my back and start training for a Full Marathon (if that is not possible), at least another half or more.

I found out last month that I have what is called a disc extrusion in my lower back. I have to see a specialist and I am hoping to have that taken care of very soon so that I can get back to my normal workout routines.


3. Complete another Sprint Tri and spend time with these awesome ladies!

I completed a Sprint Tri in October 2016 and loved it! I am hoping to do at least 1 more this year! These two girls are simply amazing and always go along with my crazy adventures!


4. Grow closer in my walk with Christ.

This is a very important part of my life. My goal here is to do more Bible studies this year and to grow stronger in what God has planned for my future.

never try, never know

5. Explore more parks with my husband.

There are so many National Parks out there that I want to explore and visit. I am hoping to see more of those this year within Texas.


6. Find and ride in more bike races.

Since I am currently in the process of purchasing a new road bike and practicing with it  I would like to gain more experience with it this year. It is very new to me and I have been working to gain more experience on it and on the different roads.


Have you come up with goals of your own or maybe you created resolutions for this year? What is one of yours?
