How are you all doing today? I can’t believe February has come to an end! It is only a few days shorter then the other months, but it feels a lot shorter to me! How did we get to March? Seriously I feel like it should still be November 2012… !
I am just doing a check in post to keep myself accountable for the February goals that I set! I apologise it is not the most interesting of posts.
Here are my February Goals and how I went:
I want to sit down more regularly with my girls and do some focussed activities, with educational goals. Spontaneous learning is outstanding, don’t get me wrong. However, sometimes I feel like we lose the day and don’t get anything done. I’m not talking hardcore activities I’m talking colouring books, play dough, counting games etc.
I feel as though we sort of naturally progressed with this, without too much planning. My girls are at an age where their concentration is longer and are more engaged in activities.
I want to draw up a training program for myself. Nothing too hectic or ridiculous. I want it to be achieveable. However, again lately I feel as thought I have been fluffing through it all and probably wasting my time because I know I could get more out of each workout if I was foccussed.
I did not do this at all. No excuses.
I want to do one workout a week at the gym. I really really like going to the gym, especially since it is so much harder to go. I am much more motivated at the gym.
I am came close, I went three weeks in a row.
I want to change the layout on my blog! And a few other bloggy related things. I could probably spend hours and hours making improvements, but I really need to work on “the look”.
I also did this, not completely happy, but I’m happier. Still a work in progress.
I need to get ahead of the laundry… ok so a ridiculously annoying and boring goal. Seriously though laundry kills me. We have so much.
I think this is more of a fantasy then an achievable goal! Haha! I did do a lot of laundry this month though.
I want to finish going through our stuff, sorting it to donate, sell and chuck. And actually following through with those things.
I also did not do this. Again, no excuses, back on the list for March I think.
I want to get out and meet with friends at least once a week this month. Ok this makes me sound like a massive loser, haha, because pre kids I went out all the time. However, I find it so hard to catch up with people these days. Once a week sounds like nothing but it will be a nice change.
I did do this but not in the way that I planned. I actually caught up with new friends who had kids. When I planned this goal I was intending to catch up with old friends that I never get out to see.
I want to go on at least one night out with my husband. Again, this rarely happens.
This did not happen either, we tried for Valentine’s and it didn’t work out.
I want to have fun! And more fun! This needs to be every day!
Mixed bag, I definitely had some fun! I could have done better!
And I want to sleep more. This has been my goal for about 26 months…
I will go with yes on this one. Today I laid down with my girls for their nap and we all slept 3 hours… I didn’t even know I was tired. I’ve been making more of an effort to rest with them at nap time, it makes a difference!
How was your February? And what are your big plans for March?
March here bring Autumn (Fall). Yesterday was the last day of Summer (boo) and there has been a cold change here in Sydney. I feel like we have gone from Summer to Winter… I was hoping March would be warm so I could pretend we were still in Summer. What is your favourite season?
