  4. Make use of group training sessions - I went to a full training camp! 
  5. Do not ignore recovery - My calf has improved immensely, so SUCCESS!

2013 Personal Resolutions
  1. Do 12 things that scare me throughout the year - Still only one down!
    1. #1 - went on my first date in three years (don't expect a blog entry about this one)
    • I am taking any suggestions!!
  2. Obtain a 2nd coaching position - I am currently coaching/training 4 clients, running a studio class 1x/week, am in planning stages of a second class, and have a fall/winter training program started with 4 people signed up so far!
  3. Make time to visit my sister in PA.  This one's looking harder every month.
  4. Compile and keep a list of recipes / meal ideas - The Recipe Book tab is underway!  New recipe on Fridays.
  5. Continue eating healthy - Success!
  6. Continue cooking from home - Sudcess!
  7. Continue personal reading - Finished 'Clash of Kings' and onto Joe Friel's 'The Triathlete's Bible'
  8. Put 10% 25% of my income into savings! - First off, I am changing my goal from 10 to 25%; I feel 10% is too well within reach.  Anyways, thanks to the timing of my paychecks, I got three this month, so I went WAY over my goal.  I saved 54.1% this month and have totaled 31.4% so far this year.  That will be helpful going into the month of Lake Placid!!  Next month I expect to be negative.

1.  How was your June?

Dream.  Believe.  Achieve.
