2017 in pages

May finish another book or two, but for 2016 I’m at 82/75 and 61 for #2016TBRPile, both of which I’m happy with. I stumbled on an amazing roundup of 2017 reading challenges for which I’m glad because it doesn’t look like the 2016 one will be back in 2017. I’m definitely going to do another […]


#GoTheDist 2016 home stretch

This blog is late, but going out with a bang. November: 320,610 steps 131.81 miles walked Q4 to Date 655,441steps 269.34 miles walked 2016 to Date: 3,747,352 steps 1,540.28 miles walked Yep, 4 million is happening.

#GoTheDist: October 2016

so what where my October goals? 301,135/302,677 (actually aiming higher, I want a cushion against a bad December) 30 miles biked And my October totals? 334,831 steps 137.53 miles walked 4.5 miles biked (way too nice out) That’s insane/amazing with two weekends away and I’m really thrilled. I’m starting November strong with a 15K day […]


#GoTheDist 2016: September and Q4

so a 350K month happened. Specifically, a 352,423 step month. Whoa! I know exactly what hat I pulled that rabbit out of – beautiful weather and a lot of museum hopping for work made for two 20K days September Totals 352,423 steps 144.75 miles walked 3.81 miles biked (it was just too nice out) Q3 […]


#GoTheDist August 2016

aka QUIT FREAKING OUT. Maybe in bold, all caps I’ll actually listen to myself. So I had a freak out at the end of July about August’s travel and fretting over 280 vs. 300K and shooting for 900K. August’s total? 325,874 steps. Thank you two insane days in Colorado and a couple good here when […]


#GoTheDist 2016 3.1

I came to an important realization this weekend. Or, to be honest, an acknowledgement of something I realized a long time ago. I cannot enjoy a good step day/week/month because I’m forever fretting about the next. Le sigh. That said, July was a-MA-zing. 345,390 steps 141.86 miles 72.43 miles biked (11 gym visits) My July […]


#GoTheDist 2016, midway point

Woah, we’re half way there, woah, livin’ on a prayer. Take my hand, we’ll make it I swear, woah, livin’ on a prayer How is it July 1 already? My step goals for 2016 were 3,600,000 / 3,680,000. I’m currently at 2,068,024. I’m mostly ignoring miles due to the inconsistent step/mile ratio, but I’m at […]


2016 Q1 in Books

  I’ve nailed 2016 steps wise, how about books? Specifically my #2016TBR challenge. Through the end of March I’ve read 30/75 books which Goodreads designates as 11 books ahead of schedule. Of those, 25 count toward the TBR challenge. I’m pretty happy with both of those numbers and I’ve since finished another that counts toward […]


January in steps, miles and pages

So there must be something about an end of month rush. Last year at the end of February I did a mad dash of exploring NYC and yesterday? More of the same.  I needed 14K for my stretch goal and came home with 16K January, you were amazing. 301,695 steps 124.2 miles walked 85.14 miles […]


2015: it’s a reading wrap

my final 2015 numbers thanks to another beach author binge: 102 read with 38 unfinished. Wow, just wow. I didn’t finish the A-Z challenge but that’s mostly a product of not wanting to read what I’m told to read so 2016TBRPile challenge it is. While I hope to read more, my goal is 75 due […]


2016 reading challenge

At least the one I’m planning on at this moment.  Level: 50+ Married with Children I think the reason I’m struggling with finishing the A-Z challenge is an issue I’ve had since high school. I hate being told what to read. If I have to read something, I won’t. That’s why I end up avoiding things […]
