Can you believe 2014 is half over?
Since I am obsessed with lists and like to keep track of everything, I thought I would take a look back at my 2014 goals again and see what I have accomplished. I did a post like this in February – (How Are Those New Year’s Resolutions Coming Along?) and at that point I had accomplished a handful of things.
Here is my original list – 2014 Goals.
And here is where I am at this point:
Kitchen – umm…still adding pins to My Kitchen Board – Pinterest. And actually, we have met with one kitchen designer and one architect…but now we are stalling…
The Kid’s Bathroom, Laundry Room and Office – nothing new in there…
Getting Rid of Stuff – Actually, I could practically win an award for this one! I have donated, thrown out, cleaned up SO many things. I am not finished yet but definitely rolling along!
Blogging – Still using Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest. I am still learning things all the time and even wrote a Blogging Tip post recently…(It’s like I really know what I am talking about!) I will also be reviewing a product in the next week!
Exercise – Believe it or not, I have been slowly accomplishing this goal thanks to my darling doggie. Rosie had a check up recently and the vet told me she was 70 pounds but should be 63-65 pounds. Well, besides cutting back on treats, I have been walking her EVERY day. We have an invisible fence so I hadn’t been in a regular routine with walking because I figured she runs around the yard all the time. Apparently that exercise was not enough so every morning we walk around the neighborhood. We only do about a mile but sometimes in the evenings we walk an additional mile. I know that’s no big deal to all you regular exercisers out there but I had really slacked off for awhile! But I am back on track! In addition to the walking, I have been bike riding with the kids on a regular basis. And if you count the one ski trip I took back in March…I am an exercising machine! – LOL!
Speaking of trips, one of my goals was (and always is) travel! We managed to fit in a few trips over the last couple of months! In March we went skiing in Killington Vermont. – Vermont Ski Weekend. In April we took a family trip to Baltimore – Family Trip Baltimore Inner Harbor, over Memorial Day Weekend we spent some time at the Jersey Shore – Recent Happenings and just last weekend the kids and I spent time at my sister’s rental house in Long Beach Island, NJ. (I guess I should post about that one of these days!) Here’s a preview of some water sliding fun…
Family Time – With all the trips, outdoor activities and pool time, the family bonding time is going strong.
I love summer….
Have you taken a look back at any of your goals for 2014?
