Review of February Goals

Ok,  reality really stinks.  On Feb. 5 my dear husband had to take me to the emergency room and I ended up having surgery the next day.  I have been out of work since.  No lifting for another 5 weeks over 20 pounds.  So much of my goals did not get done.  Lets see if I got anything done:  :)


Home Goals

1.  Continue to work on dining room area.  We are transforming it into a dining room. still not done
2.  Continue to straighten and organize sewing room. worked some in here but still not done
3.  Inventory pantry area and organize better.  dh worked on this a bit


Health Goals

1.  Start working out again.  I froze my gym membership for now
2.  Test sugar levels more consistently.  getting better
3.  Continue to write down what I am eating.  started doing this again


Spirital Goals

1.  Read bible daily.  getting better
2.  Attend ladies class on Sunday mornings.  attended when I could


Family Goals

1.  Date night with hubby X2  done
2.  Have dd and sil over once  done
3.  Have ds and dil over once  haven't seen them since I got home from the hospital

4.  clean "room of holding"  started but not finished


Health Goals:
1.  start working out 3 x a week  big fail
2.  record what I eat and when to see patterns  I did start this process
3.  test blood sugar more regularly  not consistent
4.  cut down soda to 2 a day  Yes
5.  lose three pounds  I lost 1.5 pounds


Spiritual Goals:

Looking Ahead instead of Behind ...

This past year has been a rough one for our family.  We dealt with our fair share of disappointments and joys.  So today I will look ahead to 2015.

I normally do not make resolutions as I rarely get half of them done but this year I am determined to make some changes and I want to be held accountable.

Hopes for 2015:

1.  To get us financially stable.  This is a huge one as retirement is looming in the near future.
2.  We need to start eating better.  I know this is one that most people list but we are dealing with some health issues that make it vital that we do this.
3.  Learn to let go what I can not control.  The doctor once again, told me to destress recently.
4.  Meet my short term weight loss goals.
5.  Meet more of my monthly goals.


We hope to travel more in 2015 to see family and friends.  Now that both kids are married we feel that we can do this more now.

Hear is to a healthy and happy 2015.
