I'm already behind! I should have posted this at the end of February/beginning of March, and we're already past the mid-way point in March. Guess the 30for30 distracted me.
Here's where I am with those goals:
1. Read 30 books.
In February, I finished two books I had in progress from January:
The Lives They Left Behind: Suitcases from a State Hospital Attic by Darby Penney
Stuff: Compulsive Hoarding and the Meaning of Things (audio) by Randy O. Frost
Bird Cloud by Annie Proulx (audio)
Obsessive Consumption by Kate Bingaman-Burt (not much actual reading in that one)
That puts me at 9 completed books in the first two months of the year, which is definitely on track for this goal.
2. Get at least one new stamp on my passport.
3. Blog 5 times a week.
I blew this one out of the water. I blogged 44 times during February's 28 days. Go me!
4. Journal every day.
Massive fail. Much as I try to be otherwise, I am still just not a journaler.
5. Cook dinner at least once a week.
I'm not sure how I did on this one. I know I cooked a couple of times, but I don't know that it was quite once a week. Partial success?
6. Fully fund my 401k.
No progress yet.
7. Save $15,000.
No progress yet. Still chipping away at the CC. Should be all paid off by the beginning of April, though.
8. Excel at my new job.
Things continue to go really well at work. I have received no indication that I'm anything but loved. So score on this one.
9. Make one positive health change per month.
For January and February, I had two changes--establish a gym routine and get 5 fruits/vegetables a day. The first one is an unmitigated success--I am consistently going to the gym and loving it. The second...not as much. I'm still trying, but I'm only getting my 5-a-day about half the time. I'm going to move to a new challenge in April. March's challenge is to track my daily eating, which I hate doing, but is necessary at this point.
10. Re-institute monthly date night.
All in all, I'm feeling pretty good about how things are going. Progress is always slower than I'd like, but keeping track helps me see it more clearly.
