We are hurtling through March! I have a few minutes to write and wanted to get in an update on my 2012 goals. (You may want to reference the original post to see detailed notes on what I am talking about here. Or not! =) Either way I think you'll get the gist.)
-Time for hobbies? Not so much. Unless you count getting my tube fed daughter to drink from a glass! =) Which, coincidentally, is going a little better! (More on that in another post, maybe.)
-Watch less TV? Maybe 20% better.
-Women's Conference? I am going to be in the drama for one this weekend. So YES!
-Join a small group? YES! Thank you to my best friend in town for hosting!
-Call the Intergenerational Center? Nope. Maybe after spring break. This summer we should have a lot more time to participate in their events so I am looking forward to that!
-Read? I am almost finished w/the first book of the year, but I have been also reading my Bible a lot more.
-Grad class? Slow progress but I am enrolled.
-MYM Challenge? I am still Maximizing My Mornings! The Bible reading part is easy, the exercise and planning are not.
-Bible reading and journaling? Doing well, but there is always room for improvement!
-Memorize scripture? Mo and I have at least 4 new verses down. I would love to up that to 4 a month =)
-Mission trip? No progress here.
-Small group and Women's conference? See above.
-8hrs of sleep? Doing well, but again, room for improvement. I know it has really helped my attitude so far, though, so it's always good when I can see results.
-Exercise? Started Jillian again and did well for 2 weeks or so but then I got sick and now it's busy! Yes, those are excuses. I hope to pick it up again after this busy weekend. I have found 2 events I would like to run in, so I'm using that for motivation.
-Thighs? Arg. I am afraid to measure. But I know when I was doing Jillian last time it made a huge difference.
-5K? Like I said, I will be signing up for at least one and I found a 2K close by that hopefully we can do as a family. I will look into a few more when we get back from Spring Break.
-Water? Why is this so hard for me? I'm doing ok, consistent, but it's never enough.
-Real foods? We have been doing a 'detox' of sorts by not eating out for the past month. I'm really proud of us! I know, that doesn't necessarily mean we are eating real foods, but seriously, we used to eat out anywhere from 1-4 times a week. BLECH. This was a really good place to start. Still using mac and cheese in the box, but I made almond milk and I continue to 'make'/grow kefir. We make our own pizza, but use store crust. Things like that are where I think we are doing well, but again, could do better.
-Eliminate packaging? Well, yes for the almond milk, but not really anywhere else I can think of. I need to do more bulk bin shopping!
-Out West trip? The finances just don't seem to be there. We are dreaming and scheming, but unless we find a financial sponsor or a lump sum buried in the backyard, I don't think it will be this year. =(
-Research a move? Always. Plenty of interesting houses for sale. Not ready to make any steps in that direction yet, but...still on our minds.
-Another adoption? Also, always in our hearts, minds and prayers.
