Oh, January. You went SO fast.
1. Being less negative. It took me 27 days to be negative about something at work. That’s major progress on that situation. Plus, I mentioned it once, for 5 minutes, to my boss who witnessed it. Then let it go. I had one other incident that I thought about raging about after that, but then just kept it to myself. WIN.
2. Projects. I actually am making a lot of progress on projects, surprisingly. Or not. I love crafts, so this one is sort of easy?
I’m aiming for at least one project from the following groups:
- Play for Thomas: In Jan, I began a felt board for Thomas. (This will probably be ongoing, so I should post soon about what I’ve done to date.) I also cut out two felt eggs, the start of T’s felt play food for his kitchen.
- Clothes for me: In Jan, I started a kimono from a fabric I bought last year for that purpose. I just need to hem it. I also picked two patterns for lounging pants and bought patterned knit fabrics. I want to be REALLY comfy to go to the playground, but not wear crappy clothes.
- Christmas decorations
- Home decor
3. Track my food on my Fitbit app. I tracked my food 4/31 days. That’s weak sauce, you guys.
4. Back health. Still haven’t found a chiro, did yoga 7/31 days in January. I also started using a electro-pulse device that treats pain. It helps, somewhat. I bought a Groupon for yoga classes (10 of them!) and plan to start that soon….
5. Clothing budget. $65.88/$534. I can tell that including purses and shoes is going to make this year much more challenging. About $51 of this was bags — I needed a new, very large weekender style bag because I’m hoping to fly to Minnesota with Thomas in the next couple months. And it was $40. SO MUCH OF THE BUDGET. I really want a new pair of Toms, but I don’t know that I can afford them… Does asking for them for my birthday count as part of my budget? Sigh. I think it should. Otherwise, it’s just cheating.
6. Read 25 books. 1/25. I’ll find the title and do a list. I started doing audio books again during my commute. So. That.
7. Declutter. I’ve done a little. I got rid of a table that was sitting just inside our front door that was becoming a dumping ground. But I need to list some stuff on Freecycle and get it out of my life.
