via - great article too!
January flew by in a flash and I have a feeling February being the short month that it is will do the same!! Writing my goals out holds me accountable - I feel like I've made a promise to myself by putting it out there in writing so I need to keep it...how well I do at keeping it is another story! Here's how I did with my goals for January:
~ Bring lunch to work 4x per week: half pass. It was an odd month with snow days and on some of the days I would bring lunch, I'd only get a small soup or something small to go with my lunch, so I wasn't spending as much money.
~Read 2 Books: half pass. I finished the DVF book (review coming soon) and started on this one during my Florida trip. So not a total fail and I honestly only have my commuting time to read, so I need to find some other time in my schedule to fit it in!
~Send 3 pieces of snail mail: PASS! Easily my favorite goal of the month!
~Plan out two weeks worth of blog posts: PASS! This was actually really helpful and I'm taking it into February as well!! The Plum Paper Planner came in so handy because I can see the full month view (with ample space to write)and then my days are broken out into to-do lists. Pretty much the best planner ever! I'm also able to check off if I hit all the proper social media outlets for my blog that day.
~No M&Ms: PASS! Gary can attest to this one being hard, but I haven't had any and I'm not craving them...probably because I've supplemented with having Milano cookies instead...not much better LOL
~Organize photos from Europe: FAIL. Flat out did not get to this at all! With over 400 photos it's just daunting trying to narrow it down, but it will get done!!
All things considered, I think I did pretty well....did I do them all, nope but I feel good about the ones I did accomplish!!
Here's what I'm hoping to get done in February!
1// Unsubscribe from emails I never read. I find myself deleting emails more times than actually clicking through the emails, so why not save some time and unsubscribe from them all together!
2// Make 2 new meals from the Chelsea Market Cookbook. Since it's a short month I think 2 is an attainable number and there are so many great recipes to try - so who wants to come over for dinner?!
3//Drink a glass of warm water with lemon 4x a week. After reading and hearing about all the benefits from so many people and Gary getting on the bandwagon with this, I've decided to give it a go!
4// No gel manicures this month. I went a little crazy since November getting my nails done and my nails have taken a beating! My only problem is the nail polish chipping so much faster - so any remedies you have for that I'll take!!
5//Get ahead of spring closet cleaning. I've gotten a few new pieces of clothing over the last few months and haven't really stuck to the rule one item in one item out! So step one is the cleaning and step 2 is the ebay selling and also need to buy a few more of these hangers - they are the best!
What's on your list this month to tackle?
