January Recap and February Goals

6 Feb

January was a rough start to this new year, so I’m really hoping that February is a bit more gentle and kind.


Recap of Monthly Goals:

Watch/Read a documentary/biography : I started reading Amazing Grace: William Wilberforce and the amazing campaign to end slavery by Eric Metaxas. I am enjoying it so far!

Try a new recipe: Once again I made a few recipes from the Eating Clean cookbook (pickled pears and apples and the pancakes). I also sort of followed the lamb meatballs recipe in Against All Grain cookbook. I followed the spicing and marinating of the ground lamb. But, ended up using it as spaghetti meat instead of turning it into meatballs. It had such good flavor.

Write one letter a month

Read theology/marriage/bible study book: I am still reading The Supernatural Ways of Royalty by Kris Vallotton (mixed feelings on it so far).

Edit ‘Amelia’ : I finished my read-through on the 20th!

Eat healthier/lose weight : I have been able to clean up my eating a lot and have gotten back to the weight I was at the beginning of the month

Post Regularly – I’m starting to think that I need to change my posting goals. As much as I want to focus on posting two times a week, I want to focus on editing my book and often I’ll find myself posting instead of doing that. So… an adjustment of goals just might be in order.


Jan. Goals

Couch and Box Springs to the dump – augh. I feel like these are never going to leave.

Clean oven

Redecorate TV table

Dust entire house – I did get half of this done.

Workout 2 days a week  I’ve  been able to walk Abby a few times each week!

1 thing I didn’t think I could do:  I did 3 quick trips to the grocery store with a BASKET rather than a cart. I haven’t been able to heft a basket around a store in about a year.

I also just got back from a quick trip to Bend – and I did really well with a super busy 2 days that I couldn’t have done months ago. Woot!


And now, for February’s Goals:

Couch and box springs to the dump

Clean Oven

Finish dusting house

Workout 2 days a week

Finish crochet Camper

Index Cards for ‘Amelia’

    I do hope you reach your goals this year. Mine are mostly about enjoying my gift of life and treasuring each day, each moment, and each person in it. I am working out 3 times a week at gym (free membership through insurance) and doing walks and dancing at home!

      Wow! That’s great! It’s so nice to be able to get out and walk isn’t it? I’ve been loving my walks lately! Yes, this gift of life is one that we often take for granted. Thanks for stopping by and sharing.
