- Run (not walk) a 5k race.
01 - So, ah, I've gone walking once or twice. That's a start!
02 - I've gone walking a few more times than I did in January. That's progress!
- Read the Bible in a year.
01 - So far, so good!
02 - I'm doing just dandy with this. I've completely read through Genesis, Exodus, and Hebrews. I'm almost done with Leviticus and Proverbs.
- Lose 10 pounds.
01 - So what if I told you that I was down 9 pounds by my own scale in just January alone? Yep, it's true. Wanna see my chart? Of course you do!
02 - If you count that I gained during the cruise and at the end of February I was lower than that weight, then I lost! Granted it was only 1 pound, but still! See progress chart below... See that spike in the middle? Yeah, that was the cruise...
*update*I lied! It was 5.5 pounds I lost in February. Mainly attributed to the fact that I gained on the cruise.
- Post a picture a day...taken on that day... instead of a quote a day.
01 - Ok, so I've slacked a few days. But I get caught up!
02 - After the cruise I slacked on taking a picture a day. But I was still posting a picture a day. I'll work on that...
- Have monthly dinner party, or at least invite some friends over for dinner.
01 - I failed for January. February isn't over yet though...
02 - The last couple weeks I've had my family over for dinner on Friday nights. And I've volunteered to have TND at my house the 5th Tuesday of March. I'll let you know how that goes.
- Down size possessions...aka clutter
01 - I've gone through my closet and through my pile of purses.
02 - I rearranged the living/dining room and went though some more of my closet.
- Try new recipes from the cookbooks I have. (see #6, they will be guinea pigs...)
01 - Boo me! How does cereal sound? Mac & Cheese...?
02 - Ummmm... I haven't tried anything new. But I've tried new things that my mom has made. Does that count...?
- Exercise a minimum of 3 times a week (walk/jog, Wii Fit, DVD, etc., see #1)
01 - I've averaging about once a week of exercising on purpose. But I do activities that include activity.
02 - Boo! I'm still on the once a week average. Time to kick it into gear!
- Daily make time for God.
01 - Doing well. Spending lots of time in prayer. I'm not even kidding.
02 - There is always room for improvement here. But I'm human and I'm trying. I pray more regularly and I'm in the Word daily. That's definitely moving in the right direction.
- Travel somewhere new.
01 - Just got back from a cruise to Cabo about a week and a half ago.
02 - Um, did I go anywhere in February? I don't think so. But that's ok!
