new year’s all year update: month one

Hi, everyone! How was your weekend? Mine was pretty good. I spent time with my friends, boyfriend, and dog, worked, and knocked some things off my to-do list. I did a lot for the blog this weekend, and I have to say, I’m excited for what’s coming up the next few weeks! (One big development to note thus far is the movement of my blogroll from the sidebar to a separate page of the blog.)

Today is the first Monday of February, which means it’s time for my New Year’s, All Year Challenge update! To be honest with you all, I haven’t done as well so far on the challenge as I wanted to be doing at this point/thought I would be. However, I know that I am doing well in other parts of my life and I can use that knowledge to inspire and motivate me.

So far, of all my 2011 goals, the ones I have made substantial progress on are as follows:
  • Develop blog further through establishing fixed features, etc. – I have started to post humorous stories or videos every Wednesday. How do you all like it so far?
  • Cook one new recipe a monthwinter salad
  • Create and wear wardrobe with intention – got my first pair of Sperrys! I love them, I wear them whenever I can.
  • Eat at least two servings of both fruits and veggies every day – my favorites are apples and carrots.
  • Go to mass once a week – I’ve missed a week or two, but I think I’ve done pretty well so far.
  • Teach Madison to stay and give paw – we’re making substantial progress with stay!
  • Complete at least 40 service hours – I just finished organizing/executing the last curriculum night I will be in charge of for my teaching community

This month, I hope to make further progress on the above goals and progress on the goals I haven’t worked much on yet. And it’s not too late for you to join the New Year’s, All Year Challenge! Any time is a great time for change. If you’re going to join the Challenge, leave a comment saying so/linking to your goals, or shoot me an e-mail.

How are you doing with goals you’ve been working on? Any problems/tips to share?

    I'm glad you had a good weekend! Eating more fruits and veggies is definitely a good goal to have! I find it so incredibly difficult to do so, especially because it means I have to go to the grocery store more!!!

    That's great you are doing well with your goals. I just thinking trying to stay consistent is best and to not overwhelm or stress yourself out, but try to achieve your goals in small steps!
