I need a redo! I need to start all over! I need a new new year!
I made my goals, and I really have not done much to keep up with them. I have been a terrible resolutionist. I have been so worn out and exhausted this first week back to school, that I have been doing the bare minimum to survive.
Here is where I stand with my goals so far:
$435 into miscellaneous savings accounts*- Nope. I get paid this upcoming week, so this will get done in the next couple of days.
10 No spend days- I haven’t tracked them, but there haven’t been many at all.
Track spending- Nope. Haven’t tracked it.
Use cash only- Nope. I used my Target card just yesterday (which I justify because I get 5% off. And I was buying diapers… which are needs.)
One Date night this month- Haven’t thought about it and haven’t discussed it with Hubs.
Run at least 35 miles- I am doing ok with this one. I am currently at 13.22 miles for the month.
Start muscle strengthening workouts- I have been doing ok with this one. I have been doing some arm workouts with free weights about every other day, and I have been doing planks daily, but I need to come up with some schedule to get everything in and balanced.
Yoga at least 3 times a week- I have done yoga about 3 times the whole month so far.
Each more veggies (at least 1 at lunch and 1 at dinner)- Doing ok. I am more aware of eating veggies at lunch, but it is hard to incorporate.
No more pop!- Woo-hoo! One that I have stuck to!
Drink at least 5 cups of water a day- I do well on days that I don’t start my day with coffee and days that I am at school. I have done this about half the time.
Recreation (Things I like to do)
Blog 5 times a week- Obviously by my lack of posts in the past week, this is not happening.
Read at least 1 book a month- I have made progress, but I am really going to have to stick to reading each night if I want to finish it.
Start a cleaning routine- Haven’t even thought about this.
Paint last set of cabinets*- We just got our microwave mounted today, so I can start painting them sometime this week! I am very anxious to get started!
Vacuum at least once a week- I vacuumed all the saw dust from mounting the microwave today. Does that count?
Complete one large home cleaning task a month- Woo-hoo! Another one down! I cleaned and organized our pantry last weekend!
So, as you can see it is time for me to really change my mindset and get going with these goals. If I really want to make the changes, I need to commit to making them priorities!
How are your goals going? I am sure you are doing better than I am!
