Goals. January. February. March.
Try a new restaurant (of Abe's choosing) each month.
We took the MAX (our new place is just a 10 minute walk from a transit station!) into downtown for an ORS concert a couple weeks ago, and Abe wanted to go to Oregon Culinary Institute for dinner afterward. However, then we found out it's not open on the weekends, and had to spur of the moment pick something else that was accessible along the MAX lines.
Enter: Habibi, a Lebanese restaurant with lots of clearly indicated veg options. I got the vegetarian mezza - a great sampler platter, full of things either wonderful or only marred by my weird texture preferences but objectively still good. I actually want to add this place to our regular repertoire of restaurants.
Try a new recipe each month.
Some spicy kale and yam dish from one of Abe's cookbooks. It was ok.
Still need to make up for a new recipe in March. YTD cooked/required: 3/4

This... really isn't working. I've been eating pretty crappy between the final weeks of busy season and a move and getting unpacked, and not really exercising routinely.
For May, I'm making an effort to minimize added/processed sugar. So far doing fairly well with that. Also will be starting a training plan for the July 4th half marathon soon.
Run 1,000 miles.
This month: 20.2
11.96% of the goal; 32.88% into the year.
Bike 1,500 miles.

15.79% of the goal; 32.88% into the year.
Read a minimum of 2 books each month.
I finished a book! I started and finished Divergent this month, wanting to read it before seeing the movie (which I still haven't gotten around to seeing yet).
YTD read/required: 1/8
