Monthly Goals : March

1 Mar

A month has come and gone already! Where oh where do the days go? My birthday is coming up in March – so we’ve got some fun plans for that, and I’m also hoping to get my novel edited by the end of march! Big plans. Big plans.

 EDIT Amelia book til ready for a professional editor. – I finally read all the way through it- getting it into my head as a story rather than different scenes all mixed up – and have gotten some editing done. Hit a major frustration that has killed all motivation to work on it. Hoping to get back at it this week though! – sorta WIN

~  PLOT/create Story Board– Finished this a few weeks ago! I’m so proud of it. -WIN

~Lose weight/get healthier –  I have tried to eat healthy this month but it’s not gone too well. The typical .5 lb loss and then gain has happened. – FAIL

Make writing a habit most every day –  Even saying it’s almost every day is probably a stretch. I’ve started writing Georgia’s story, have about 3k words on it (!), but pain and focusing have made it hard to write, or even to want to. – Sorta WIN

Grow SGL’s Traffic – once again, haven’t worried about this yet.  – FAIL

Read more books on Jewish living – not at all! haven’t even picked up Messianic Jewish Manifesto since I started it beginning of last month – FAIL

Write a letter to one person a month – Yes! I wrote a lovely little letter to a lovely person. snail mail makes me happy.  – WIN

Try a new recipe – once again in the Against All Grain cookbook, I made the Basil-Thyme Vinaigrette. It was super yummy , even though I didn’t have a few of the ingredients. Only negative side is that the coconut oil hardens, so you have to warm it up before each use. Also tried a White Bean and Chicken Chili recipe that was sub-par, even after I tried to bring some life to it. Disappointing.  – WIN

Watch/Read a Documentary/Biography –  Just finished  Failure is Impossible:Susan B. Anthony in her own words by Lynn Sherr. It’s  a collection of Anthony’s letters, speeches, diary entries and articles. It’s well put together and I’m collecting a LOT of info for my book I’m starting – WIN

Learn Hebrew- I added this one mid-month. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do the past few years but have only ever given a cursory glance at it. Thankfully, my OH still has the books he learned in, so I’m able to do this without buying anything! I’ve started Hebrew in 10 minutes a Day, and worked on memorizing the alphabet with some pretty sweet flash cards. I’m not staying on top of it every day but I’m trying to several times a week. – WIN

~I did survive my dentist appointment, but came away with some disheartening news that I’ll share in my Feb health update (probably next week).

~Not sure I’ve spoiled my OH like I was hoping to. The biggest thing I’ve been focusing on is trying to keep him supplied with juice. And keeping Abby away from him so he can nap on the weekends.

This month I want to:

Watch Under Our Skin.

Edit the heck out of Amelia’s story

Be stricter on NO SUGAR and more veggies

Find a local charity that accepts knitted/crocheted items – anyone have suggestions?

Finish gallery wall

Keep taking the girls to the dog park 3x a week – weather permitting
