A Goal Check-in

Happy 6 months to S today! :) What a big girl she is getting to be!

On this lovely, snowy Friday I thought I'd take a minute to update on my progress with January's goals. My three goals were as follows:

1. Organize and purge the Nursery.
2. Read 6 books.
3. Exercise three times a week.

Here's how I did:

1. Fantastic! I am so excited about the nursery. Turns out twenty minutes a day is more than enough time to purge a room. Especially since the only things in it belong to my baby, and how much stuff can one six-month old have? ;) I didn't put in my twenty minutes every day that I meant to, so a few days I doubled up. The organizing is basically finished, but without piles the room looks pretty bare. So know I want to focus on decorating. When your baby decides to appear three months earlier than planned, the nursery isn't usually ready.

2. This might be the unattainable goal. Technically to be on schedule, I should've finished three books by now. I am very close to being done with The Coupon Mom's Guide to Cutting your Grocery Bill in Half and The Extraordinary Mother. Eat that Frog is a very manageable and easy read, it takes me about five minutes to read one chapter each day, so I'm not worried about that one. It's the big, thought-provoking, and important ones that are killers; so this week I'm going to focus extra attention on God's Solutions for Life's Problems and Becoming a Woman that Please God (both of these are excellent so far!). Haven't even started The Magician's Nephew, mainly because fun fiction is a breeze for me, so I figure I can save it as a special two or three day treat for the end of the month :).

3. Exercise is going well. Last week I was able to work-out on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Nothing major, just about twenty minutes each morning. I am trying to do one day each of pilates, yoga and the treadmill. This week has been good so far- Tuesday and Thursday worked better with my schedule, so as long as I get on the treadmill Saturday morning I'll be in good shape (no pun intended). Saturday mornings are tricky...we'll see.

How was your week? Are you still plugging away at your New Year's Resolutions, or have they fallen to the wayside? Join me on the 3in30challenge! Excellent accountability, and a great way to meet other lovely bloggers :).


  1. Great job! I've been meaning to make a list of books I want to read, but haven't done it yet. Maybe soon.
