Oh, March. In like a lion, out like a sleep-deprived, overworked, cranky lion.
- 10 projects. Nope!
- Pay down credit card from 2013. PAID IT OFF! I’ve got two cards left, and now I’ve got to figure out if I want to play the 0% transfer game for a while. Might be worth it.
1700/1700 = 100%
- Plan and stick to a budget. I bought the YNAB software. Does that count? I have been curtailing going out. 😥
- Save $2500. $300 mas.
- Drink 64 oz. of water a day. After doing this for only five days in February, I worked a lot harder to meet my goal. I made it to 11 days in March. (What? I doubled it!)
- Lose 45 lbs. Still down a few pounds from where I started.
- Walk 4,000 steps a day. 22/31 days. In March, I walked or ran a total of 59 miles. That’s kind of nuts. I also got my very first case of shin splints, so I curtailed running. I’m actually kind of looking forward to getting back into it once the gym renovations at my apartment complex are complete.
- Reduce procrastination. I don’t even know. There’s so much to do at work, and priorities are always in flux, that I simply can’t do it all. I don’t know if I’m procrastinating so much as just dropping to the bottom of the list the things that I can. We are hiring a third person for our team, and maybe even a contractor to fill in while we take the time to make the right hire.
- Send one card a month. I bought a card, but I don’t think I sent one. Does the card on my mama’s birthday flowers count?
- Cut down on wasting time on the internet. Not so good at this one. I am always feeding info of some sort into my face, even when I’m blow-drying my hair. I think I need to cut that out.
- Write two pages/day, three days/week. Oh, sad. I wrote once in March. This is what always happens. I did fill out the journal completely during my last session, though — that’s a first.
- Read 15 books this year. I forgot that I did in fact finish a book earlier this year. Here’s where we stand:
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain (Funny! Much better when you read it as an adult)
One Drop: My Father’s Hidden Life by Bliss Broyard (UGH. So terrible.)
Take This Bread: A Radical Conversion by Sara Miles (Yay! So good.)
3/15 = 20%
Go to four museums or Atlanta things. Hmm. I have gone to new Atlanta restaurants, but I don’t think that’s what I meant for this one. I’ll keep working on it.
There you have it. March 2014: too much work, not enough fun times. I’ve got a beach trip in May that I’m looking forward to, if I can last that long!
