January check-in and new February goals

January Goals and Good Stuff check in- and a new list for February!

OK, so let's see how I did...

1.  Lose the 5 pounds I put on over the holidays.  I need to lose a lot more than 5 pounds.  But like I said. keeping it realistic and manageable!
Well, I lost 2 pounds.  And then I gained them back.
2. Take down the 3 trees I put up and all the Christmas decorations.  I have most of the decorations down, but I just haven't had the time or energy to take down the trees.  I am really hoping to get this down this weekend!!
3.  Decorate the house for Valentines Day
Done!  Although the "decorating for Valentines Day" is really quite minimal.  I realized that reds and pinks don't really match my decor.
4.  Start exercising.  For this month, my goal is to take at least 2 long walks a week (I told ya, easy and manageable!  And it's getting really cold out there!)
Ummmm...epic FAIL
5.  Eat healthier.  More veggies and fruits.  Limited sweets and reduced caffeine.
I did eat healthier.  Not all the time, but more than usual.  And I did scale back my caffeine take.  
6.  Buy lunch at work only 1x a week.  This will save me some money, as well as help with my healthier eating goal.
The beginning of the month I did great.  As the month wore on, I started to fall off this a bit.

1. Have 2 successful birthday parties!  Alec's party is this weekend and Nick's is at the end of the month.
2.  Go skiing (pending appropriate snowfall).
No snow, no skiing :(  Yes, while you southerners were getting pounded, we got nothing!
3.  Take the kids tubing (again, pending appropriate snowfall)
Again, no snow.
4.  Date night with the hubby
5.  Have friends over for a game night

OK, on to February!  Which is probably going to look like January since I did not accomplish half of those goals!

1.  Lose that 5 pounds!!!
2.  Start exercising- 2x a week
3.  Read 3 books this month.  Well, at least 2.
4,  Continue to reduce caffeine intake, specifically in the reduction of soda.  I'm not giving up coffee!
5.  Finalize our summer vacation plans

1.  Do something fun for Valentine's Day with the hubby
2.  Cook and craft with the kids
3.  Go to the science museum
4.  Plan a girl's night out or girl's day 
5.  Get a massage

Check back next month to see how I did!

  1. I hope you can get those 5lbs off. I have 16 to eliminate to be where I want to be. Do you have a gym or YMCA where you live? It is a lifesaver here - the kids are entertained and I can burn off the fat and tone up the muscle!
