Oh boy. Just logging into my wordpress account gave me a little bit of anxiety just now. I’ve been gone too long! Getting back to school snatched up all my attention, and it took me a little bit to get into my heavier workload and figure out a routine for this semester.
I know that this is often the point where bloggers will apologize for their absence, and I’ll be up front with you right now ~ I’m not going to do that. This blog is my place to be real and to be me, and the real me has ups and downs and sometimes abandons a project for a couple of weeks! With that said, I did get two texts from my sister asking why I stopped blogging, and one text from Sarah saying that she missed my blog ~ that was quite affirming!
The real drive that pushed me back ~ besides all the words building up in my head, bursting to escape ~ is that I need to recap my January goals! I will admit, I don’t really want to recap them, which may give you a preview of what’s to come…
Goal: 124-Minimum Number of Fruit/Veggie Servings Consumed
- Although I love fruits and veggies, I’m REALLY bad at working them into my diet. For whatever reason, they don’t typically leap to my mind as a first choice. I set the number 124 because it equaled 4 servings of produce per day for the 31 days of January. I have to say, I am nearly ashamed to announce that my final number for the month was 63. That comes out to about 2 servings per day. This is bad news! And it’s news that I was aware of, but really never examined in black and white. Lots of room for improvement here!
Goal: 24 Daily Bible Readings
- This was also a goal in December, and I didn’t stick with it then. Happily this month I did a bit more ~ I hit 11 daily Bible readings. This goal is definitely a work in progress, and I’m looking forward to continue to incorporate this part of my day into every day.
Goal: 5 Pounds Lost
- Suffice to say: nope.
Goal: 1-Minimum Number of Daily Blog Posts
- And… nope! Please see above…
With my less than stellar goal completion for the month of January, I am rolling all four goals over to February. They’re all reasonable goals that are important to me, and so I will continue to work on them!
