- Read four books. Only read two.
- Drink 64 oz of water daily. Coffee? Maybe. Water? Not even close.
- Restart morning pages. Nope- only once.
- Be present for Christmas. It really didn't feel like Christmas until about Christmas night. I already have plans for next year.
- Get 2017 planner read. Yes! Managed to get a plan in place for this, and it's working so far.
- Work on long term goals. Yes! I have a 2017 and beyond to do list started and an idea of what I want the year to look like.
2017 Theme: People and Experiences > ThingsI want 2017 to be about trying new things and being with people instead of worrying about things and spending time maintaining them or looking at more stuff to buy online. My house is full of books and things and I have plenty of projects I can work on that will require little more than elbow grease and time to get done. I want to spend my extra money on travel and not more clothes or fabric or books or things I don't really need, so that's going to be influencing several of my monthly goals throughout the year.
- Daily quiet time. Preferably in the morning, but time to do my Bible reading, some devotionals and just get in a good mindset for the day.
- Work out at least three times a week. With temperatres below zero and winter making it dark when I get up in the morning and dark when I get home from night, and just an overall feeling of lethargy, I finally broke down and joined the gym here in town with one of the girls from work. We've been doing good about keeping each other motivated and I've found the elliptical is actually bearable when I have some music to listen to.
- Church every Sunday. I have been skipping out of church for over a year, and while I don't feel like you have to go to be a Christian, I felt like for me, it was time to go give it another look.
- Twelve blog posts. I know I've been neglecting the blog, and I feel like I have a plan to remedy that.
- Get together or set dates to see four friends. Since leaving the hospital, I don't see a lot of my work friends regularly and while everyone says, "We need to get together." I want to actually do it.
- Write four letters. I just want people to know I'm thinking of them. So, sending cards is an easy way to do this.
- Sew at least 1/2 an hour a week. I think a half an hour while easily turn into more, but I want to set a weekly goal because it's easy for me to neglect my sewing machine for weeks on end.
- Write at least 1/2 an hour a week. I need to get over the fear of not writing well enough and just write. Half an hour seems a reasonable starting place.
- Save $100. I travel on the cheap. AirBNB and little mom and pop hotels are just my style, but travel still takes money so I want to set aside some money each paycheck to cover things like gas and food for trips.
- Read 4 books! This is going to be the year I reach 48 books! I'm determined!
