Back in January I shared my 2014 New Year Resolutions and Goals so I wanted to share how I am doing and check in to see how you are all doing on your goals and resolutions. Here are my goals for the first three months…
Goals for first 3 months of 2014:
- Loose 4lbs
- Run at least once a week
- Spend no more than 1 cumulative hour checking my phone, facebook, instagram, etc, each day
- Spend more time playing with my kids
- Go on one date night a month
- Read one book a month
Here is what I’ve been up to so far this year…
> I joined the local YMCA and started working out/running twice a week. I’ve not lost any weight but I am keeping track of the food I eat in order to eat healthier on MyFitnessPal app.
> I did a really good job of only checking my phone twice a day (at nap and bedtime) the first two weeks of January but have gotten worse about it the last two weeks. So I am going to work harder not to be on my phone.
> I’ve spent time playing trains, legos and reading books with my kids. Plus I take opportunities to play in the yard or take them to a park.
> My husband and I have been going on date nights once a month plus doing a daily ‘dating my spouse’ task to help us reconnect.
> I have read one book a week so I just finished my fourth book for the year. AT this rate I should probably invest in a Kindle. 😉 I am also going to join a neighborhood book club to encourage even more reading!
Doing these things has helped me feel a sense of rejuvenation in the new year. I feel like I am making some sort of head way with my life because I have a purpose with my goals set and I am actively trying to meet them!
