I'm late! Here's how things are going so far. I decided to put the goals I'm doing well with in green, and the ones that are failing in red. I'm a visual person :) Stick around for my all my personal junk and you just might get some Goodwill coupons and an introduction to my rad feature sponsor :)
1. Get back to my pre-sickness weight
In case anyone's keeping track...I no longer eat eggs. Luckily I didn't have to go through with that very strict and very long elimination diet because I eliminated eggs right away and boy do I feel better! I never realized how many dishes had eggs in them though, and I'm having to really adjust the way I eat.
As far as the weight goes, it's all back on. I've made zero progress...ugh. I knew this was going to be a challenge when I was just fighting my cravings and willpower. It turns out there is a whole lot of medical stuff going on too. I'm not letting that stop me though, I just need to up my game :)
Matt & I are starting the Love Food: Lose Weight plan again today. It is the only thing I've tried this year that worked so why not just stick with it! I'm also going to be getting on the treadmill a lot. I lost all my baby weight and got myself in pretty good shape for my wedding by walking. Just good old fashioned walking. We'll see if I can still do it!
2. Learn to knit
I'm going to take the Knitting 101 class at Joann's in July or August :)
3. Re-learn how to sew
A sewing machine will be my next big purchase and then I'll start!
4. Read 60 Books
I'm reading book #31! I'm on a roll with this one. I'll do a "bookworm" update soon to share my favorites and warn you of some seriously crappy books out there. I have this thing about finishing books that I start no matter how bad they are. It's a curse, I've read some crap this year...woowee.
5. Get dressed
Same...doing pretty good with this. I'm at least wearing shorts and a t-shirt instead of yoga pants.
6. Go to the Grand Canyon
7. Finish decorating my home
This is my favorite goal and it's going really well. We now have curtains and I'm working on some finishing touches. Bailey also has her own office & art center. I can't wait to do room tours when this project is finally complete!
Take a photography class Done!
I did it! Read my review of the class I took from Bella Pop HERE.
9. Hit 200 Etsy sales
Meh...I should probably change this to a make X amount of $ from selling at shows because Etsy is definitely on the back burner right now. We're only about half way through the year though so we'll see. I'm happy with the way my business is going right now so I'm not worried.
10. Cook Dinner
This is going well, I'm even making lunch!
11. Do at least 3 tutorials a month on the blog
Well I have one ready to photograph & post, just need to do it.12. Go Green & Garden
I've been reading a ton about gardening in the desert and educating myself on best recycling practice. I'm really confident that this will be in place by the end of the year!
How are you doing on your goals?
