2012 Goals: January Check-In

So every year I make goals and usually by this point in the year I've forgotten them.  But I really want to make lasting changes this year.  I want these goals to stick, far beyond January.  So each month, we're going to do a linky check-in of our progress.  We'll list our goals for the year and how we're doing.  I'm hoping that by keeping track of my progress, I'll be more likely to stick with real change.

These were my 2012 Goals and how I did in January:

Personal:
*Keep a consistent devotional time, memorizing verses through my discipleship group.--I'm getting there.  But consistency is still new.  Maybe within the last week or so.

*Memorize 12 verses with the kids.--Not yet.

*Read 24 books.--I've read 4 so far

*Tackle 12 DIY projects.--Tackled Homemade Dishwasher Detergent in Jan.

My Marriage:
*Plan a bi-weekly time of being together.--We're working on it, but how do you plan a time when you're chasing three kids, working, volunteering at schools, volunteering in the community?  We did have a date night in Jan though.

*Read 2-3 books together.--not yet

*Plan a yearly getaway.--Planning for this summer

My Kids:
*Plan a once a month date with each of the kids.--Took Lydia for ice cream, took Noah shopping

*Homeschool/supplement preschool for Lydia and 1st/2nd grade for Noah.--Trying to get a better routine with Lydia

*Read through the Magic Treehouse series with them.--Not yet

*Go on a field trip once a month.--We took a trip to a local museum.  They love that place.

Health and Wellness:
*Convert 4-5 items on our grocery list to organic, as budget allows.--Not yet

*Develop a gym routine of 4-5 days a week.--Bonding with Baby, will go back to gym this week.  Will probably start out just 2 days a week so see how he does in childcare and work up from there.

*Eat more seafood.--Bi-monthly so far

*Learn to make an incredible loaf of sourdough.--Not yet

Writing:
*Plan posts one month in advance and write posts one week in advance.--Got it, so far!

*Spend 2 hrs a week writing on something other than the blog.--Ooops for Jan

*Budget my blogging time more appropriately.  Do less work when the kids are around.--Getting into a better routine.  But it's so hard as we all know.


Link up below and just know how you're doing.  Let's work toward real change in 2012!
