For the first time, I set some goals for myself for the new year. I thought it was time for a check-in to see how I'm doing.
My goals and progress:
1. I want to get back to exercising.
I've been exercising regularly for the past month. Sadly, I've gained weight rather than lost, but after investing in an elliptical trainer, I intend to keep it up and get my momey's worth.
2. I do not want to buy a single article of clothing!
I've bought three things (a huge improvement): a pair of jeans when I lost weight, sweatshirts, and an appropriate dressy outfit for an event. I've certainly looked and lusted, but I haven't bought anything else. It's the hardest right now with the weather changing and all the newest clothes in stores, but I switched out my winter and summer clothes so it's almost like getting a new wardrobe.
3. I want to write an article for Dawn every week.
I've only written twice. Maybe this summer?
4. I want to purge.
I've organized the basement. I've gotten rid of pretty much an entire wardrobe, but I still have a long way to go. Hopefully this will be another summer project.
5. Part of my plan to get rid of stuff is to actually get back to scrapbooking.
I started organizing my photos, and I bought a tray table to set up shop, but I've done nothing else. I'm not really upset about this considering that I'm finishing my Master's right now. I have very little extra time for such a big project. I did reorganize my supplies and made them more accessible.
6. I want to transfer all of my home videos to digital files.
Done. I may have to redo a couple, but I did them all. So far I've made two movies out of them and transferred one directly to DVD. I want more time to spend on this.
7. I want to learn to let go of things.
A work in progress.
So far, not bad.
