2019 Goals February Update
2019 GOALS February Update
It’s the beginning of a new year and I have lots of plans underway. Here’s an update for February and how much progress I’ve made on my goals.
Lose the ten pounds I’ve gained since moving to Ohio, ha!
Five down as of this morning. We’ll see if I can keep it that way.
No spend February.
I posted on this yesterday. It was a mixed bag, but in all I think I achieved about half of what I’d set out to do.
Gardening - Re-landscape and start a raised bed garden in the backyard.
I ordered a few seeds but it’s been too cold here to really get started. Though I’ve been looking at my existing landscaping and making plans.
Train for the Spartan race, again. (More on that later.)
Ah, June is quickly approaching. This week I walked and ran at the gym. I’m having some issues with my right knee IT band. Though my arm is doing great. It’s still a bit stiff but it’s getting there. I’m sure training will pick up when the weather is a little less psychotic here.
Read 12 books. (okay…that’s easy for me but I have to include something achievable.)
(Okay, don’t laugh…) Marrying Winderborne by Lisa Kleypas
I rarely read romance novels but it was Valentines and well…it’s pretty good.
I’m doing that. There was No Spend February and I certainly went through my expenses and cut quite a lot out. Like Hulu and odd apps that have recurring charges.
Finish furnishing and decorating my home.
Since it was no spend February, I didn’t make any purchases this month. Still looking for a few pieces of furniture but there’s time for that.
Explore and visit places I’ve never been to on this side of the country.
I’ve been so busy working that I’ve not really explored much this month. I did go ice skating for the first time this past week and did not break anything! There’s a few things coming up though…more news at a later date. But, in case you missed it, I did visit the Gervasi Still House Coffeeshop by day and Bar at night.
Post a love story in parts on this blog.
I did this, you can check it out here.
Start a blog. (Okay, that was easy.) Done!
Visit the Winking Lizard each month with the BF for the Beer of the Month Club.
2 months down and counting. We plan to visit sometime this next week for March!
Publish, at least, 4 books this year! - Unbeaten, Graham’s Resolution 6, Remember the Ruin 1 & 2
Unbeaten is progressing nicely. We’re at the halfway mark and things will spend up soon!
Publish a short story connected to the Surrender the Sun series
Still in the works.
Spend advertising dollars smarter.
Spend less screen time.
It’s actually increased this week. I’m not counting writing time. Still working on this.
Read more books on writing. Still reading this one. It’s great! Not as engaging as say…the romance book but a great title to read.
That’s about it so far. How are you doing on your yearly goals?
