Monthly Wrap Up: Goals for February 2014

I'm kind of loving that the last day of the month is a Friday.
I dunno...I'm weird like that.

So let's wrap up January's goals!

1. More water
This is a win. I've done a VERY good job with this lately. Yay. Go me.

2.Weekly Savings Goals
This is also a win. I'm totally on track although after reading an article about it...I'm considering going about it differently.

3. Read some non-fiction.
Umm...loss. For sure. I did read plenty o' fiction!

The Dream Theives by Maggie Stiefvater (Book2 of the Raven Boys Series)

  • Not as good as the first book, but I'll still read the next one.

Allegiant by Veronica Roth (Book 3 of the Divergent series)

  • Didn't I say don't do some Mockingjay stuff to me Veronica?!?!? This is how you end the series?!!?!?

4. Open Boomer's savings account.
WIN! We went to the bank and opened it up. We also sat with the banker and had a good age appropriate talk about the importance of savings, and how to manage our money. Yay!

3/4 ain't too shabby people. Not too shabby at all!

So, Goals for February.

Obviously I'm hoping that the saving, water, and reading habits from January and December will carry over. I think after two months they are officially habits.

1. Make healthier meal choices.
Basically I've been able to get away with eating whatever I want and not gaining large amounts of weight. Although today I looked down at my right foot and saw quite the collection of spider veins. So basically my body is saying...we might not make you fat, but your body is breaking down in other ways. So I need to get it together!

2. Involve Boomer in food prep.
I want her to start being a little more self sufficient, and I think helping me prepare meals and lunches will help her with that.

3. Exercise at least 2x per week.
This goes back to the spidery veins too. I sit at my desk ALL. DAY. LONG. I need to add in some activity. ASAP.

4. Make at least 1 phone call to out of town friends per week.
I'm woefully out of touch with my friends, which is ironic considering how much I talk about blogging friends. So I need to do better about this. Just a quick phone call reaching out and catching up.

What are your plans for February? I'd love to hear them!

yes to a savings account for boomer and teaching her to be smart about her money. we've been doing that with kayla since she was 3 because it's never too early to learn money smarts!! my sister never did and was a mess even through adulthood!

Vodka and Soda

Holla wit your bad self! I'm so proud of you, sweet girl. 3/4 is NOT too shabbby at all, you should feel good about what you've accomplished. I like this idea of writing out specific goals for the month. Perhaps I will try...

This is such a good idea! I need to hold myself accountable for my goals. I will take on the work out two times a week with you this February!

I didn't love Divergent. I still need to read the other 2 before I give my full opinion.

Fun! What kind of food prep are you going to do?

Have you noticed a difference in how you feel since drinking more water? I've noticed a HUGE difference! Much less sluggish!

Vett Vandiver said...

I'm focusing on more water this month too!

Gwen said...

I totally need to drink more water. I'll make that a February goal. I used to be good about it but fell off that wagon.

Tiffany said...

I don't have spider veins from sitting at my desk, but I do have some saddlebags on my hips! You are doing great with your goals!

I also need to make an effort to call friends more often! It is really hard. I have to remind myself to call my mom once or twice a week as it is!
