Today I wanted to recap on my goals for February, give an update on how I did and set my goals for March.
February Goal Recap:
*Continue blogging about 4-5 days a week.
*Grow my Instagram account to at least 300 followers.
*Sponsor another blog
Instagram grew over 100 followers last month putting me around 350, THANK YOU! If you aren’t following me yet, I’d love for you to fix that. Leave me a comment letting me know how you found me and I’ll follow you back.
Just last week I finally started sponsoring a blog. I couldn’t possibly be more excited to be Courtney at Shiraz In My Sippy Cup’s first sponsor. Go check out her blog, you are sure to love her.
*Shower them with love through Valentines Day
*Take each of the girls on their own special outing.
Done & Done.
I posted about how I showed my girls the love and I was able to take them both out on special nights. Marissa and I birthday shopped for Emily and stopped by a local cupcakery. Emily and I went out for ice cream. I need to make a point to spend special times with my girls more often.
*Exercise at least 5 days a week including my 3 runs.
*Drink more water
*Be more faithful in my foam rolling, yoga and stretching
*Complete my first relay race
This is where it all goes south. Just when I made plans to be more faithful in exercising I suffered an injury. I have spent the past month battling an “awesome” case of runners knee. Good news I only missed one or two runs and it is getting better.
More water…. didn’t I mean to put more hot tea? Pretty sure I did.
I have been stretching more, so I can count that one.
The relay race was a huge success.
*Listen to more Christ centered music
I did some reading for my latest book review, I Choose You. Bible reading is definitely not where I would like it to be still.
More Christian music has been going great and it has been so, SO good for my heart. I may even work myself up to taking K-Loves 30 day challenge.
*Begin preparing for placement testing
*Start shopping curriculum for next year
*Begin planning our home school room
*Be more prepared with Emily’s projects and work for the week
Test prep is in full swing.
95% of my home school curriculum for next year is purchased and here or on it’s way. I didn’t expect to have that much done but I am thrilled I do.
Home school room plans are being made. I can’t wait until we start.
Emily’s projects…. FAIL. I have been keeping her more active but I have so much to improve on. Good thing for me she is so smart.
*Research and begin working on some spring items for the Etsy shop
*Finish my first photography course
*Start my garden plants from seeds
Spring Etsy items… still haven’t even began.
Photography course, still not done yet.
Start my garden, YES! Peppers are already sprouting and tomatoes will be planted next week.
All in all February was just a hard month. Russ was sick, the girls were sick. my knee acted goofy, Dr. appointments, snow days, we just a rough month all around. I refuse to beat myself up for not doing as well this month. March is a new month and a new chance.
*Continue blogging about 4-5 days a week.
*Grow my Instagram account to at least 400 followers.
*Host a giveaway to celebrate my one year blogiversary (spoiler alert, it’s tomorrow).
*Do more crafts and art projects with the girls.
*Family game nights have at least 2 this month.
*Have one movie night with the girls.
*Exercise at least 5 days a week including my 3 runs. Let’s try this again… no promises.
The knee is still not 100% yet.
*Drink more water. I think I may try labeling a bottle by the hour.
*Half training is in full swing now. This months long runs include some 9 & 10 mile runs.
My goal for that, survive.
*Get the hubby running! His first 5K with me is in less than 5 weeks.
*Start reading again.
*Continue to listen to more Christ centered music.
*Continue preparing for placement testing at the end of the month.
*Celebrate only having one quarter (9 weeks) of school left.
* Take a field trip or at least plan one.
*Finish my first photography course.
*Continue garden planning and prep.
*Make a new pallet sign.
*Complete The Blogger Life Photo challenge on Instagram #BLphotochallenge
