January Resolutions Update

Thursday, February 1, 2018

We're one month into the new year and I'm already slacking on my resolutions. I feel like Mr. Mayhem from the AllState commercials. I couldn't even last 2 weeks. But there is no fail only get back up and try again. So let's take a look at my 2018 resolutions and how they are going so far.

Weekly Resolutions

Blog 1x per week - Welp, since my last post was my December recap and my New Years vacation post on January 5th I'm guessing you can tell how this went. However here I am, post 2/52 and trying again. I have some ideas for upcoming post so I'm going to attempt a Friday post schedule (with maybe a few in between posts)

Vlog 1x per week - Basically see above. I was trying to get all the videos I took around the holidays up but I am not a very efficient video editor so it takes me way too long to try to record and edit daily vlogs. Props to those that vlog daily, you have way more time and skills than I do. I'm just going to attempt to vlog weekly again!

Clean out the fridge every Tuesday - While we haven't intentionally done this, we have been much better about eating leftovers so there hasn't been those mystery containers hanging out in the fridge. I've also gotten better about just tossing food that we know we will not eat at a later date which is a great help.

Monthly Resolutions

Lose 4 pounds per month - I did so well the first 2 weeks of January. I logged my food daily in My Fitness Pal and worked out 5 days a week. Monday of my 3rd week, I started to have some medical issues that caused me to fall completely off the wagon. I was in terrible pain for most of the 3rd week of January. I would come home from work and immediately lay down in the bed. (If you have known me for a while, you will know I hate to just lie around.) I didn't feel like getting up to cook so we mostly ate out the whole week. It was an all-around terrible week. But I'm back to cooking and working out now so even though I didn't lose 4 pounds in January, I plan to lose my 4 pounds for February.

Print photos from the Month for a photo album - I have not printed out my January pictures yet, but 
I want to. I also still need to find a photo album so I'm going to work on that this weekend!

Yearly Resolutions

I have a few yearly goals however both of them are financial goals. Finances, or more specifically money 
amounts, are things I don't like to talk about on the blog. But for my own purposes, I want to track my 
progress so I will say…

Yearly Financial Goal #1 - I am 0.3% of the way to my goal. Not where I should be but that's okay. I 
didn't really try very much to accomplish this goal during January.

Yearly Financial Goal #2 - I am 5.3% of the way to this goal. This is a goal that I can save some tax 
money to help with so I'm very excited to boost this percent in the coming months!

How have you been doing with your New Year Resolutions?
