It’s the last day in February and time to see how I’ve done with my goals for the month.
Fix my girl’s hair 3 times a week. – Overall I have had fun with this goal, though I didn’t do so well keeping up with it this past week. The girls have been pretty patient while I experiment with their hair and they like seeing the different styles. I hope to keep this goal up, because I know they won’t always be my little girls and let their Mama play with their hair.(sniff)
Keeping up with my cleaning schedule. – Last week I didn’t do so well on this goal. My kid’s rooms got really clean but I didn’t have time to do mine. I think I may need to split the three bedrooms between two weeks, at least for now. I am very happy with what I accomplished this month. It’s so great to have most of the house tidied up. It takes a lot of work and persistence, but it has been worth it.
Losing 5 lbs. – This has been a great goal to have this month. It has helped to keep me accountable and kept me going in my weight loss this year. I wasn’t telling you what I lost each week, so today is the big reveal.
The first week I lost 1 lb., second week .5 lb., third week 1.5 lbs., and this week 2.5 lb. That makes a total of 5.5 lbs. I wasn’t sure I was going to make it, especially with one week being .5 lb. loss. I am happy with what I have accomplished. I would be even if I didn’t make the 5 lbs because I feel better, more toned, I have more energy, and am altogether healthier. That is what makes it worthwhile.
This goal has been such a good thing for me to put out there to my billions of readers (Hi Mom!), because I feel more accountable. I have to report to you how I’m doing and that is a big motivator for me. I’ve decided that I’m going to go all out and (deep breath)…keep posting about my weight loss/getting healthy journey every week. This is a huge step for me and I’m super nervous about putting it all out there. I’m also excited to see what happens. So, stay tuned to see how much I lose each week and also how and why I am changing this part of my life.
How did you do on your goals this month?

WAY TO GO PAULA!!! WOOHOO!!! Love that you are doign this. what a neat way to track your goals.
Thanks, Mir! Love you too!
You’re right. I am ‘one in a billion’. 😉
Just remember that goals are meant to be positive things and they are ‘goals’ not ‘requirements’. Your readers will be just inspired by the honest view into your life, regardless of whether you are sharing goals reached or just the efforts and sometime failures.
Yep, that’s what scares me is sharing the failures, but I know it’s good for me. Thanks.
