Project 52/January Goals - Update #1

Project 52 Update (For the full list, go here):
In progress:
1. Don't be such a homebody./18. Date night once per month.
2. Try fish once per month./48. Try new foods - I had fish twice!!
20. Workout on a regular basis (as a part of monthly goals)
25. Learn to like unsweetened tea - I won't say I like it yet, but I am definitely trying over and over again.
26. No more artificial sweetener! - Ugh.  This is hard.  Mainly for the tea!
32. Use my Deceptively Delicious cookbook every month - Made pizzas with pureed spinach.  Trent ate it up!!!
35. Work on Trent’s hitting/throwing habit - Lots of spanking going on in the Gurley household right now...sad face.
45. Spend more time in the evening with Brent (unplug from the computer) - see 18.

12. Try Zumba
33. Reread all 7 Harry Potter books - Yup.  Read them all between Jan 1 and Jan 21.  Told you guys I was a nerd.

Not going so well...
39. Reduce my work % - Sigh

January Goals - to refresh your memory...
1. Survive. January is a rough month for me work-wise.  I want to not stress about the little stuff and just focus on surviving. - Well, January is over but see 39 above.  Ha!  I think this one sticks around until the end of March this year.
2. Workout 3 times per week. Seems pretty easy, but it's not for me!  My long-term goal is more than this, but I'm just starting out small. - I did it!  There were times I almost didn't make it and didn't want to workout, but I sucked it up.
3. Cook with fish once. I don't really like fish, but I know it is super healthy.  I want to see if I can find some way I like it. - So I didn't cook in January.  But I ate it twice.  So I'm counting this as a win.
4. Pick up for 5-10 minutes each day. Again, not trying to rock the boat here but want to start somewhere. - Eh.  Sometimes yes, sometimes no.

So there you have it.  I'm going to just keep truckin' along!  Check back later today for February goals!

Sounds like things are going pretty well for you. It's nice to scratch things off the list, or to see that you're making good progress.
