So a few posts ago, I mentioned the first Monday of each month I would post a list of goals I would set for myself and I would update you on my progress from the previous month.
January Goals Update:
- 1 new dance routine
- Sherpa Bag
- Swim Suit Shopping
- Hawaii Itinerary
- Clean & Organise apartment
I feel pretty good about January and even took a few pictures to show my progress. The Hawaii itinerary didn’t happen at all… I just couldn’t find the time and I think I found the prospect slightly overwhelming, there are too many things to pick from. And swim suit shopping didn’t end up with a new swim suit, but not for lack of trying, I may get a chance to look for one before I go, but if not, that’s ok, I can always swim in my shorts & tank top.
I managed to choreograph a new dance routine for the Dance Aerobics class I volunteer teach at the local YMCA and my class loved it. =) I picked a song that had a great beat and the moves came easily to me (I wish it was always that easy).
I met with a retired art teacher to try and get my creative juices flowing again. I’ll keep you posted on how things progress. We’re starting very slow and easy, but I’m enjoying it so far. My first “assignment” was to just buy some inexpensive paints and paper and doodle around:
The funnest part of the month was cleaning & organising. I know… I’m such a dork, but I LOVE organising things!
Most of the apartment is actually pretty organised most of the time anyway, it just needs touch ups every now and then and I like to do a “good” clean a few times a year. I have a “six month rule”, if we haven’t used it in six months, it will probably be donated or given away.
Here are some kitchen pics:
The second shelf in the below pic has dried beans in jars, there are 5 jars behind the first 2, they are in alphabetical order by bean =)
I have all of my grains in jars in alphabetical order too.
And I got rid of *a lot* in the bedroom! We’re donating 2 huge bags of clothing and the closet looks great!
And this is what some of the drawers look like:
And I did get a sherpa bag so I could bring my pup home with me next time I visit my family:
Sunny seems fine with it until I close the top
As for February goals:
- 1 new dance routine (recurring monthly goal)
- work on my photography skills a bit
- clothes shopping (I really dislike shopping so this is a big deal for me, I really need new clothes :/)
- Hawaii Itinerary
- try a yoga class (I try yoga again and again and am not a huge fan, but I want to keep trying until I find a class I enjoy or at least tolerate ;p)
- try to find more balance in life (try to keep busy without keeping so busy I feel overwhelmed)
I think these goals are pretty attainable and if I don’t get them all done, that’s ok =)
