March Goals

07 March 2014|

My first month of being accountable for my own goals, and trying my best to achieve them all… So how did I do?

February Goals:
  • Wake up earlier. I tried and I succeeded most days. My special hubs did let me sleep in a few mornings though… Bliss.
  • Drink more water. Definitely doing a lot better but can always drink more.
  • Eat breakfast. EVERY. DAY. Failed with this – I’m just not hungry or too lazy in the morning.
  • Exercise at least 3-4 times a week. I’ve stuck to 3 times a week most weeks and one week was only 2.
  • Host a successful wine club evening. Very proud that I managed to do this – an awesome evening with special girls and lots of wine.
  • Spend more quality time with MC. Hasn’t really been possible as he was away most of the month but we are trying.
  • Moan less. Haha, I think I managed this one.
  • Cook more dinners. Definitely winning at this one – dinner has been served every night unless we have had plans. Sundays are my worst days though!
  • Send two snail mails. Failed.
  • Keep up with my daily journal writing, prayer time and memory book. Memory book is full every day but prayer/journal have a few blank days.
  • Plan our baby moon. Unfortunately, this taking a back seat for now as we have to watch the finances.
  • Celebrate Valentine’s Day. We did it, read all about it here.
  • Make Valentine’s treats for SJ’s class mates. Achieved, see them here.
  • Celebrate sweet friends birthdays. I had to miss one but enjoyed many others.
  • Book and enjoy a preggy massage. Done and it was heaven!
  • Bake MC a birthday cake. We made a cheesecake this year, something different. 
  • Organise filing shelves. I am proud to say I have started – all files labeled internally and sorted into categories. 
  • Clear out old and unwanted clothes. Failed.
  • Reply to all blog comments. Very proud that I can say yes to this.
  • Get cot bumpers sewn for baby #2. I tried but fabric not available yet.
  • Be a more present and intentional wife and mom. I like to think I have been.

  1. Well done on achieving so many of last months goals! Re the babymoon why don't you plan a day long babymoon, like a game drive and lunch somewhere not far from home, or plan a picnic with a company like dial-a-picnic?

    Good luck for March!
