Try a new restaurant (of Abe's choosing) each month.

November was a surprisingly busy month, and it didn't happen.

Try a new recipe each month.
Pesto potatoes - very good! 
Veggie borscht (not sure what website it was from) - ok.

YTD tried/required: 12/11 - yay!

Well, crud. Definitely prone to eating when stressed and busy, and slacked off some on working out.

Obviously, there are several goals that I won't be meeting by the end of the year! :( Some of them, that's disappointing, but I realize that I didn't put in the work to meet them (like running and biking mileage - those really should have been doable). Others I don't care as much about the accomplishment now as I did at the beginning of the year (like barefoot running, or doing a pull-up - still things that I'm interested in, just not something that got prioritized and that's ok). 

I've been thinking about goals lately also because the 3-year span of my 30 Before 30 list is quickly coming to a close, and there are a lot more left than accomplished. And I'm not sure I care. Does that make a list of goals pointless? Have I still done more of these things than I would have done without the list? Does it matter whether I accomplish these things, when they're things that would be cool/fun to do, but don't necessarily significantly impact my quality of life?
