Coralie’s Goal Check-Up. Take Two.

It absolutely blows my mind that the first 4 months of 2014 are in the books! That is just crazy talk! These months have just flown by so fast. Seriously. And. If I am being honest, as I like to be, summer has taken me by surprise! I mean- for the Southern coast of Alabama, we had a long, cold winter!

So, here we are almost to the middle of May and, I sat down to reassess the goals I set for myself for the year. I am really glad that not only did I set these goals in pursuit of wholehearted living but also that I committed to checking in every other month to keep myself on task.

I’ll start at the top and work my way to the end. First, I wanted to drink more water– well, I was doing real well with this- I had worked my way up to 2-3 thirty-two ounce glasses of water. But— well, my cups have dried up!

Number Two: Exercise 3-4 times a week. And I have to say, for the first month of these last two, I stayed true to the game- but for the last month or so— I have not done much of any exercise. That train left the station without me!

Number Three: Meal Plan. Well- I’ve been at that half-assedly. And, worse- I’ve let meat spoil in the fridge- more than once. Seriously. Sucks.

Number Four: Read 2 Books a Month. Uh, not so much- I read The Noticer & The Noticer Returns. Unfortunately, I have my Pinterest addiction to blame for not reading every night.

Number Five: Pin 3 Star Gold. I haven’t had much movement in that direction in the last 2 months.

Number Six: Increase Habitual Readership of FTTDWYW. well, I think we have lots of readers- I think some readers sporadically check in- and catch up rather than visit daily. And I think our traffic is directly related

Number Seven: Plan Posts & Plot them on the Calendar. By far, I have been the most diligent with this one- but, the whole broken laptop has thrown me for a loop.

Number Eight: Find and Join a Facebook blogging group. No movement on this at all.

Number Nine: $1000 by the end of the year in Baby Bub’s saving account. Here’s the deal- the cash flow in this household is increasing weekly as this town gears up for the summer- this will happen.

Number Ten: Support Local Charities: We did donate to a local school’s booster club.

Number ‘Lem: Find New Music. We found Anders Osbourne at Jazz Fest & I like him- Southern Rock. He’s kind of a cross between… I am not exactly sure- but, I like him & the album I bought.

So, it is very clear that I have got to regroup and get back on task. Because I have derailed so completely, I am glad I committed to checking in every two months because the accountability is what I needed to help me stay on track with these goals.
