This is how I feel about writing this post.
I don’t care that it’s immature. I don’t care at all.
Sometimes I would rather be a baby about things and just cry about it thankyouverymuch.
Grrr…I guess I better just get it over with. This is my monthly goals check-up. Only it’s not monthly because I never did one for February. Here are my original goals & my January check-up. Today is my March check-up.
To make things easier to read, I’m going to do 2 lists. The first will be goals I haven’t done. And then I’ll end with the good stuff.
Run a 1/2 marathon. – Yeah. About that. I was planning to run one on April 14. But I haven’t been increasing my mileage like I should have. So I don’t think I can run it well. It doesn’t mean I won’t run a 1/2 marathon this year, but I’m just disappointed I’m not ready to do this one. Sadness.
Do 25 push-ups daily. – And yeahhh…about this one. Well, I realize this sounds lame, but my wrist started hurting. lol – I feel like a 2nd grader explaining why I didn’t run in my homework. Anyway, after several days of not being able to play the piano because of wrist pain, I decided to cut it out and do other ab exercises. The pain went away, so I think it was a good choice.
Learn about Astronomy. – Haven’t done 1 thing on this. Fail.
Practice the piano 1 hour/week. – Well, suffice it to say – life has been rather busy lately. A week of revival, my hubby being out of town several times, etc. This is usually the first thing to go because nobody really knows if I’ve practiced or not. But many people are affected if I don’t cook and do laundry.
Write weekly in my prayer journal. – I got a 20% score on this goal.
Write 2x/month in my kids’ journals. – I wrote in my daughter’s the other day for the first time this year. I still have yet to get a journal for my little man.

Now the good part:
Get back to pre-baby weight. – D.O.N.E. I love having clothes that fit. Still working on the toning part that needs to happen after birthing a child. But Jillian is helping me with that, so we’re all good.
Organize certain areas in my home (specifically my dresser, craft shelves, bathroom cabinet & pantry). – Still gotta work on those craft shelves…
Have others in our home regularly (at least 2x/month). – We “overdid it” again this month. Love it.
Continue weekly book study with friends. – Yep. And we’re growing. Now there are 4 of us meeting together instead of 2!
Read books to my kids every day. – One of my fave times of the day. And one of my little girl’s fave times too!
It’s nice to end with the good stuff, huh? How are your goals coming? Need to make adjustments? I know I do! But the thing to remember is this: I wouldn’t be where I am now if I had never made the goals.
Make goals. You’ll be amazed at the perspective they provide.
