Mid-Month Goal Check-Up

#1 – Blog 5X per week. Doing pretty well so far. Of course, I’ve been doing lots of scrapbooking, slapping a picture up on my blog, and calling it a post. But that works too. I like that my blog is part creative/part my life. All the different ways I tell my story, which is why I started this whole crazy thing to begin with.

#2 – Take more pictures. Eh. Sort of. I’ve been taking my camera with me, and trying to capture some stuff about my life. But to be honest, things have just not been that visually interesting lately. Need to improve on this a bit.

#3 – More creativity. I have the Klutz knitting book on order (thanks for the suggestion, Jess, as I am definitely on a 10-year old learning level here). I’ve also been experimenting with some different scrapbooking techniques/colors/themes that I haven’t really used before. Trying to branch out a bit, I suppose.

#4 – Get fit. Trying hard. I’ve been doing Curves and Jillian Michaels everyday (pretty much). I have lost 0 pounds. Damn. But I have to be honest, I feel a lot more comfortable with the Jillian Michaels workout. I honestly feel stronger. Hopefully within the next few weeks, I should start to really see some results. I already think my legs look more muscular.
#5 – Live my word (SAVOR). Ooh, not so much. With my craziness lately, all I’ve been doing is thinking about the future. I’m trying to make a conscious effort to appreciate the NOW, mostly by talking to myself. “Man, I love it when we have a fire in the fireplace.” “My hair rocks today.” “I love hanging out with my husband at night.” I knew this would be difficult, and I’m taking it slow.

So there’s my mid-month check-up. Not too shabby at all. In the past, I’ve pretty much forgotten my resolutions by about January 5th. So overall, a big improvement.

Here’s to goals. And to doing stuff. And feeling stuff. And other stuff.
