I thought I’d do a monthly round-up of how my resolutions are going, as a way to encourage me to stay on track and plan goals, rather than leaving everything to the last minute! Here’s my January round-up. We’re abroad for two weeks in February, so it’ll be interesting to see how much that affects my progress! :)
- 200 sugar free days: 13/200
- Exercise 52 times: 18/52
- Clear my ‘to read’ shelf: 2/32
- Read 100 books: 10/100
- Watch 100 films: 8/100
- Watch 26 films at the cinema: 3/26
- Weigh no more at the end of the year than I did at the start: 3lbs lost
Spend less at the supermarket than we did in 2014
I made a super geeky spreadsheet to track our spending and motivate us – so far it’s working! :)
Have more patience
I’m not sure I’ve necessarily had more patience, but I’ve definitely been aware of wanting to be more patient, and trying to put that into place where I can.
I hope that I’ve done this! :) It definitely ties in with being more patient, I think. I’ve been trying to give my full attention more when people are speaking, and empathising rather than rushing in with solutions for problems.
I’ve definitely been aware of this goal too. While there was a fair amount of Netflixing in January I also wrote a lot of blog posts and cleaned up various different spaces (physical and digital).
No Progress Made
Finish the library
We’re plotting and planning to move some furniture around, but we haven’t yet got our bums into gear to start anything.
Build a WordPress theme
I feel like I’ve really honed in on an idea of what I want to do with my freelance career, and part of that is improving my WordPress skills. Treehouse has all the resources for me to achieve this one, I just actually need to commit the time and effort to doing it!
Push against my comfort zone
Honestly, I’m not sure if I’ve done this or not, which probably means that I haven’t. I guess exercising more kinda counts, but not anywhere near enough to make a big difference. Suggestions are welcome for how to tick this one off!
I feel like I picked smart choices which is helping me stay on track, rather than ambitious lofty goals I had no hope of achieving. My mantra this year is “slow and steady” I think. How are you all getting on with your goals for this year? :)
