In January, I posted a list of goals for 2016. Now that June is almost over, and we are half way through 2016 (yeah, let that sink in) I think now is a great time to do a half way point goal check-in.

5 Goals for Love You More Too for 2016

  1. Share new healthy recipes (or fun twists on old ones)- Yes! You can see them all here goal check-in love you more too north dallas blogger plano lifestyle blogger chicken tinga stuffed avocados

  3. Do at least 2 giveaways during the year- I have 2 in the works to bring you.  I am so excited!
  4. Create a following and remain engaged- Keep up to date with day to day happenings on Instagram
  5. Encourage Colton to guest post at least once a month- I MUSTACHE You has been a monthly hit. However, between his job and photography, posting monthly has become too much.  It will now be more of a sporadic posting.love you more too north dallas blogger plano lifestyle blogger foodie fitness whiskey lover time and oak bittermilk old fashioned drinks sixfourteen photography i mustache you u

5 Fitness Goals for 2016

  1. Run a marathon before the end of the year- Unfortunately I will not be able to accomplish this because of my ankle injury, but maybe a half?
  2. Upgrade to 3 lbs weights in Barre- I am working on it, but still have to drop down half-way through.
  3. Do 25 pushups (off knees) without stopping- I can do 10!
  4. Workout at least 5/7 mornings each week- Yes!
  5. Try new workouts during the summer- Not yet, but the summer isn’t over.

5 Food Goals for 2016

  3. Cut back on sweets- make healthier options- working on it and I have been doing great!
  4. Drink at least 64 oz of water every day- Getting much better at this! I even wrote tips to getting more water in
  5. Visit all of these restaurants – 2/15, I have some work to do

5 Life Goals for 2016

  1. Go some place I have never been- We leave for Greece in 3 days!!!
  2. Keep house clean- We could use some work in this area.
  3. Learn to use Colton’s camera and edit photos- Yes! I am getting better and feel more comfortable with it
  4. Watch all AA nominated best pictures (there is only 8 this year, and we’ve seen 2) before the awards- We did this!!!

What does your goal check-in look like? How are you doing with your goals so far?

    It seems like you are kicking butt at your goals this year so far. I really am trying to step back up my fitness goals. I’ve been doing pretty well on my blogging goals. I did my half way mark check in about a month ago. It’s so smart to take a minute and see how you are doing. Just check in with the miss. Good luck on the second half.

    • Jessica June 27, 2016 at 6:26 pm

      Awh, thanks Dia! I am working on it for sure.

      It is so hard to continue with goals without checking in. You’ve got this! 🙂 Good luck on your second half too!

    I love how you hold yourself accountable for your goals here on your blog. So inspiring!

      Thank you Lee Anne! I do what I can. I feel like publicly calling myself out might help me check off some more. 😉

  • kerona June 27, 2016 at 11:32 am

    Your progress so far is good, keep up the good work and keep holding yourself accountable, i have been knocking mine down too a little by little

    • Jessica June 27, 2016 at 6:27 pm

      Thank you! Way to go on knocking yours out too. 🙂

  • Rachael June 27, 2016 at 11:32 am

    First of all, can I say that I just LOVE the fact that you divide up your goals by catagory. I never do that but now I will because I can see it helps you set more goals, and also helps your mind organize them. I also LOVE that you realize you can’t run a marathon, but were willing to adapt that goal into a new goal of possibly doing a half. I think adaptability is absolutely vital to success.

    • Jessica June 27, 2016 at 6:28 pm

      Thank you so much, Rachael. That means a lot to me. I am an organizational freak, so it just made sense to me to divide them up.

  • scarlett June 27, 2016 at 3:47 pm

    Great way to set goals.. blog about it!! Love this! Good luck! XO

    • Jessica June 27, 2016 at 6:28 pm

      Thanks, gorgeous! 🙂

  • Krista Dial June 27, 2016 at 8:06 pm

    Is it just me or does it seem like February was just a few weeks ago? Congrats on making it so far with quite a few of your goals!

  • Patricia @ Grab a Plate June 27, 2016 at 9:53 pm

    Some great goals! I’m with you on the meal prep — I really need to do this!! Thanks!

  • Chelsea June 28, 2016 at 6:44 am

    Ahh! Sounds like you are ROCKING your fitness goals!!! I did a goal post for 2016 in January; this has inspired me to do a goal check up as well!!! P.S. I am working on my push ups as well!

  • Katie June 28, 2016 at 8:16 am

    It sounds like you’re doing GREAT with your goals and the year isn’t even half over yet, congrats, girl!!! If you want to try some new workouts, try the Tone It Up workouts. I’ve done them in the past but have really gotten into the workouts with their Bikini & Summer series and I’m getting my booty kicked, it’s awesome! (And they have free versions!)

  • Aubrey June 28, 2016 at 8:30 am

    It sounds like you’re really rocking your goals this year. So many accomplished and we’re not even halfway through 2016. Too bad about the marathon, but you can’t injure yourself further.

  • Shann June 28, 2016 at 8:33 am

    I love how you broke up your goal list. Sounds like you’ve made some great progress! Have a wonderful trip to Greece! Can’t wait to hear all about it.

  • Ashley LaMar June 28, 2016 at 9:37 am

    Go you!!!! It sounds like you’re having an amazing year. Good luck w/ that half marathon and it’s smart that you’re giving your ankle time to recover instead of pushing for a full marathon if you’re not ready. Also, I’m seriously envious about your trip to Greece. That’s my dream vacation! One day I’ll get over there…

  • Denay DeGuzman June 28, 2016 at 11:04 am

    I love that you made a firm list of goals and are checking each off the list one by one. I think when you see your goals in writing they become more than a random collection of ideas. They become something concrete. There is still enough time in 2016 to get all of your goal boxes checked. You can do it!

  • Nellwyn June 28, 2016 at 11:29 am

    Congrats on accomplishing so many of your goals! And Have fun in Greece! I’d love to go there one day.

    Ummmm…you are amazing! This list is totally inspiring. Congrats on awesome progress. And 10 push-ups?! You rock. 🙂

  • Neely (@Neelykins) June 28, 2016 at 4:56 pm

    People just dont get how difficult 3 lb weights are at barre! I remember telling my husband I used 2 lbs and he laughed at me. Rude!

  • Jessica June 28, 2016 at 8:08 pm

    Great progress and I am loving all of the healthy recipes!!

  • alexandra @ my urban family June 28, 2016 at 9:24 pm

    Congrats on your progress so far! The I MUSTACHE You posts sound entertaining!

  • Jenny June 28, 2016 at 10:36 pm
