Five on Friday - March Goals

Today I’m recapping my February goals and listing my March goals.  As always, I’m using a Y for YES and N for NO to indicate whether or not I accomplished my goals. 



February Goals

Relationships

Y  Go to dinner with girlfriends.

N  Go on a date with B, take 2. – Two weeks of this short month were spent quarantining with Covid kids, so this didn’t happen again.

                                                                                      

Personal/Health/Wellness/Fitness/Beauty

Y  Meditate, quiet time, and affirmations every day.

Y  Drink 64 oz. most days. 

Y  Close all rings on my Apple Watch 16 days.

Y  Cancel my gym membership.

Y  Visit with my therapist.

Y  Donate blood.

Y  Make lash and brow serum.

Y  Eat a veggie with lunch most days.

Y  Cut back on my evening treat and/or substitute something healthier. – I actually did skip my frozen yogurt many times this month, but a few of those times, I had a hot toddy with whiskey, so I’m not sure that’s much better.  Lol.  There were several nights that I either skipped it altogether or substituted for a cup of hot cinnamon tea, though, so I’m giving myself a yes for this.

Y  Read 1 fiction book. – I read not one, but two books this month! 

 

Family/Fun

Y  Book Disney dining for our trip!!!!

Y  Start baseball.

Y  Celebrate Valentine’s Day.

Y  Watch Olivia make her First Reconciliation.

Y  Celebrate Brian’s birthday!

Y  Celebrate Grandparent’s Day at the kids’ school.

Y  Celebrate Olivia’s birthday!

Y  Start going back to church in person.

Y  Submit yearbook ads for the kiddos.

Y  Apply for scholarships for next school year.

Y  Record a video every single day of the month and upload to my One Second a Day app.

 

Home/Organization/Planning

Y  Prep for Valentine’s Day.

Y  Prep for Brian’s birthday.

Y  Prep for Grandparent’s Day at the kids’ school.

Y  Prep for Olivia’s birthday.

Y  Redecorate the kids’ bathroom. – We put up a new shower curtain and new wall art, and we bought new towels and rugs, and redecorated the shelf.   

Y  Continue working on laundry room refresh. – We added a small cabinet in there to expand storage, we moved some stuff around for functionality, we hung some art, and I bought a rug to put in there.

Y  Clean out all remaining areas of house (except Jacob’s bedroom). – everything is done except for Jacob’s bedroom, the outdoor stuff, and the closet in Brian’s office (which was all intended for March anyway).

Y  Continue revamping the front sitting room. – I moved a few things around in there, added a few coffee table books, and new lamps to brighten up the space.  I also moved the wall art around in there a bit, although, I’m not done just yet.

Y  List spring clothes on Poshmark. – Yes!  I got so many of them listed on Poshmark as well as a local Facebook group, and I’ve already sold a few items.  Still have a few more to list, though.

Y  Complete 1-2 tasks on Master To Do List. – I did two!

 

Blog/Social Media

Y  Post 3-4 times most weeks.

Y  Start planning content for April – June.

Y  Continue sharing the house cleanout process in Instagram stories.

  2. I saw Blue Man Group WAYYY back when I was in Vegas for my 21st birthday and it was really good! I have been doing some meditation with my iFit membership. That have some quick ones that are 20 minutes or less and I've been trying to do one a day. Sometimes I almost fall asleep during them, though! Ha, ha!! I guess I am just so relaxed. Looks like you had a lot of birthday fun this month!
