Donna over at Knit1Spin1 just did a blog post on how her goals for the year were progressing and I thought it was a brilliant idea. Esp. being 1/3 the way through 2012. Hoping it helps me to refocus and get a move along.
Make time for hobbies that I truly enjoy Yes, I’ve been doing this.
Have more quiet time – relaxing in sun, sitting on beach, having baths, walking (when able) Yes, esp. the relaxing the sun and getting out for some walks.
Read and review at least one book a month (romances not included ) No, though I’ve read quite a few non-romance books I totally forgot I planned to review them. Will get onto this.
Sort out all our home movies and put them into iMovie Not started yet
Plan a wonderful trip to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary in Dec Underway
Possibly try horse-riding (haven’t been since I was a teen) and scuba diving (had a panic attack last time) Neither yet
Complete ALL online classes that I sign up for Oops…. guess I can still get to them….
Tackle my weight gain once and for all Not yet, I’ve lost a few kilos but it’s painfully slow so I need to take things up a notch and get more focused.
Remove all junk/over processed food from the house Pretty much – yay!!!
Simplify the way we eat – healthy, wholesome, homemade food, fruit & veg for snacks, make treats really treats Getting there
Work out more simplified exercise routine including yoga, cardio and weights. Made a start but need to get back into again. Hard with arthritis. Need a back up plan for bad days.
Try a different type of exercise – eg swimming, aqua-aerobics Not yet
Simplify homemaking routines Yes. I now have a cleaner (which has been a huge help) and seem to have developed a good day-to-day routine.
Revise budget and stick to it Doing well – back onto a cash budget system again.
Help the girls to develop, and stick with, their own routines This is very frustrating but I think we’re getting there.
Reorganise the spare room (again). Going to make it MY room for nail polish, exercise stuff, sewing, etc. Have made a good start
Meet at least 1 new online friend Not as yet, though I did meet a heap of local bloggers
Monthly day out with Mum No, haven’t done this all 🙁
Weekly Family Movie Night (Sat) YES!!!
Weekly Family Documentary Night (Sun) We started, then stopped. Need to restart.
Monthly Family Fun Day Out Probably
Invite a friend over at least once a month No
Organise craft weekend for my friends No, not sure it will happen now
Have a weekend away with family every other month Did Jan and April
**** I’ve actually done a lot better with these goals than I thought. But there were a few I’d forgotten about so it really was good to revisit them. How are you all going with your goals for the year?
