Hi, following!
I love the one-and-done goals, they give a great sense of accomplishment!
Do any of these are already a routine for you?
It looks to me that the exercise part is a lot if you were not exercising at all before, especially considering your healng ankle might not like it. How long is your run? How long the workout?

The food goals used to be routine,  it now aren’t.  I want to change my eating habits gradually so I figure if I take away something unhealthy, I’ll add something good for me.

Running was a big part of my routine most of the summer, then I hit a wicked accounting class in August which derailed me.  It was the most difficult course I’ve had since grad school and I didn’t think I would pass.  (I did, with a 93% overall grade, but I had to really work for the mark).

My runs are usually 4-6k on weekdays.  I try to go for one longer run on the weekend typically 10k.  So it’s about 20-22k per week give or take when I’m not training for a specific race.  I’m doing everything in sets of 10 and 1 (10 min run, 1 min walk) and trying to maintain between a 7:30 and 8:00 min/k pace.

For the workout, I’m concentrating on doing 1 good set of all exercises plus a proper warm up and cool down.  I want to jump in and do all the things, but I know that I need to start slow and build up.  Right now, the workout takes me about 30-45 min because I have to rest more than I would like to.  But it will get better.  :)

School has a way of sidelining a lot! Good for you trying to get back into healthy habits. Though with those runs it sounds like you weren't too far out of them :D

Progress report:

I meant to do a progress report sooner, but life got a little hectic.  I traveled to Ottawa for the Army Run (commander’s challenge 26.1k) and then to Seattle for the Base 2 Space stair climb the following week (832 stairs in just over 15 min).  It all looked good on paper, but it was logistically challenging.

 

Despit the chaos, there have been a lot of wins.

 

Food is fuel!

I am now a person who doesn’t eat chips.  I am a person who eats fruits and veggies daily and likes them!  I’m also a person who consistently drinks 8-10 glasses of water per day :)

 

Exercise!

I am a person who runs 3 days per week.  I am a person who walks or takes the bus then walks to places instead of driving and who consequently walks more than a mile per day.

 

Mindset!

I am someone who meditates for 5 plus minutes before bed each night.  I am a person who is reading three non-school books currently and needs to focus on finishing one (but they are all so good, I can’t decide which one I want to finish first).

 

What didn’t go well:

*body weigh workouts: the minute things turned chaotic, the workouts went out the window.  I could not seem to motivate myself to do them whuch lead to feeling guilty about not doing them and feeling like a failure.  Honestly, I’m not sure if they are for me, so instead of throwing the pity party for myself any longer (I want blue AND green balloons for said mini party) I’m going to try something else for strength training (this month it will be yoga 3 times per week for half an hour each).

*setting up my office: I’ve done a lot of thinking, but not much doing.  I do have a better idea of what I want to with the space, but I haven’t been home enough to actuate my idea.

That is an awesome win! You're not a failure because of the bodyweight exercises. Lots of people try and, um, don't succeed yet, and try again repeatedly before finding their groove. 

Just keep throwing things at the exercise wall – something will stick.
