What better way to kick off the new year than with a week long read-a-thon? I've participated in the Bout of Books read-a-thon quite a few times now and it is always a fun experience. It also usually really helps me to prioritize getting some extra reading time in. I'm hoping this will get my 2016 reading year off to a really great start. I'm going to need the boost as the kids go back to school this week AND it is my first full week back to work after the holidays. Blah! I'm also going to use this read-a-thon to help me boost up my numbers for #COYER. A win/win scenario if I do say so myself.
I don't have any set goals other than I would like to finish at least two books. I will be choosing from the books in my January reading pile. If one of those isn't calling my name then I will just switch it out with something different from my kindle. It isn't like I don't have plenty of books just waiting to be read.

I'm also planning on participating this year with #FitReaders. I thought that I would share my goals for January with all of you (even though I find this quite scary....what if I don't meet them?) I haven't always been the most motivated person but I have taken running back up since last year. It was a year of running and then not running with huge gaps in between. This year I would like to really focus and run more consistently throughout the entire year. Besides my running partner and I have a personal goals to run a half marathon this year so I need to get more serious about it!
For the month of January my exercise goals are the following:
- Do Jillian Michael's 30 day shred video every day.
- Run minimum 30 miles over the entire month of January.
I've got lots of plans for the new year so I need to get my butt in gear! Are any of you also participating in either of these events? Let me know so we can cheer each other on!! Trust me when I say that I can ALWAYS use the extra motivation when it comes to working out :)
