Monthly Goals, February 2017

Let’s take a look at what I completed…

* Get back to regularly scheduled programming after the holidays.
* Find a few new bloggers to read and engage with in 2017.
* Work on planning out the next couple months and find some new linkups to join. 
* Have 2 family game nights.
* Create a winter bucket list to keep us busy until spring.
* Have 1 family movie night. 
* Find some new workout routines.
* Get out the door on gym days by 5:00 a.m.
* Open my Bible more. 

* Resume classes with a smile on January 3rd… today. (Just think of me, smiling through the pain, right now.)
* Decide if we want to participate in our co-op project fair. Pick projects if we do. 
* Celebrate Russ #37!
* Plan ways to log our year better. 
* Start planning Valentines festivities.

And what I didn’t …

* Pray more as a family.
* Girls night.
* Try 2 new recipes.
* Average 4 workouts a week, 17 for the month of January.

When I started writing this post I expected to have SEVERAL things that weren’t crossed off, so I am actually pretty proud of what I accomplished this month. For the first several weeks it just felt like we were spinning our tires, not getting anywhere. Apparently that isn’t entirely true!

*Notes We decided to NOT participate in the project fair. Life is just too busy for us in February. 
Also, I am logging our year by keeping a very brief journal and using a one photo a day app. 

Honesty time. I have mixed feelings about even setting goals for the month of February. February is just such a short month and it is PACKED full for us this year. So instead of cancelling my goals I decided to adapt them, set them realistically. So if things seem scaled down, it’s because they intentionally are. 

*Start a list of post ideas for the future. 

* Have 1 family game night.
* Work on our winter bucket list.

* Average 4 workouts a week, 16 for the month of January.
* Run 5 miles twice.

* Read Extreme Prayer.

Home School-
* Stay on top of our schoolwork.
* Have Emily read more.
* Have Marissa work on multiplication facts more.

* Celebrate Emily’s 6th birthday.
* Try 1 new recipe.
* Send snail mail.

What do you have planned for February?

  1. Way to kick butt at your goals last month! That’s awesome!! Great goals added for February too. I love that you always have your goals ready to go, so you can begin working on them. I need to be better about that.

  2. I’d say your January was pretty successful! I like the idea of keeping February short and sweet 🙂

  3. Whoa! Way to crush those goals, friend. I need to take a look at ours and see what we were able to accomplish. Life always has ways of throwing those curve balls. 🙂

        1. Well I think its all out now with yesterdays post but Saturday when I wrote that I was mid craziness, lol. We were getting ready to go pick her up and drive her to KC and I no time to dish all of the details.

  4. I picked up stamps on Monday so I could send more snail mail this month, too. I just want to say thank you to my friends for their love, support and such and want to do it with handwritten notes.

  5. I bought a bunch of cards to send some snail mail but then never did. One lent I tried to send one letter a day, sending people in my life reasons I was grateful for our friendship, I was shocked at how many messages I got back saying my card was exactly what they needed that day. It was really nice. Good goals this month and yay for crushing your Jan. goals!

  6. Great goals for the month! You got so much done in January. I love your goal of writing snail mail, exercising and that you’ve adjusted your goals for a busy month. Sometimes I forget to take life into account when I’m writing my to do lists 🙂

  7. I think you accomplished plenty in January. I’m really impressed! My main goal for February is to focus on exercise a bit more. I hope I can achieve that one!

  8. You always do great on your goals (in my opinion)! A family game night sounds fun for February!!

  9. Pretty great! Of course though girl’s night gets put on the back burner right? I have been trying to have one since before Christmas and obviously it’s not going great 🙂
