A New Me- Resolutions Check In

Sharing is caring!

Well, It’s February. I don’t know how that happened. Well, I guess I do- January was a whirlwind. We went on a trip to France, the kids and I traveled to DC, and I caught the flu.

A full month has passed since I dreamed up big new years resolutions, and I am happy to report, a month later, that I have been keeping them.

My goal this year is to be a happier, healthier ME. Its time to re-claim my life. My smaller goals include traveling more, reading more, and being more purposeful about the things I do. Here are the things I accomplished on my way to this goal:

For my 52 Books in 52 weeks challenge- this month I read:

1. The Absolutist, John Boyne
2. Beloved, Toni Morrison
3. Cat’s Cradle, Kurt Vonnegut
4. A Doll’s House, Henrik Ibsen
5. Water for Elephants, Sara Gruen

I also started and will be finishing soon (which are not in alphabetical order, but what can I say, I’m easily distracted!):
Slaughterhouse 5, Kurt Vonnegut
The Book Theif, Markus Zusak
Desperate, Hope for the Mom Who Needs to Breathe, Sarah Mae and Sally Clarkson

Field Trip Friday
In my quest to travel more:

1. Belgium and France (Ieper, Flanders Region, Lille, Sedan)
2. Washington DC
3. Ancient Shipbuilding Museum, Mainz


A picture my loving son took of me today. I think he did a great job!



Things I did for me:

1. Blogged almost daily.
2. Stood up for myself even when it was hard (long story)
3. Enjoyed a ladies night with the wonderful women from the unit spouses group
4. Started the Insanity workout program with my Hubby

All in all, I feel like I’ve done a great job at TRYING to keep my resolutions! Here’s to hoping I can keep it all up in February!

  1. You’re doing a great job with your resolutions! I’m trying to read more this year, but I haven’t set a specific number goal. I don’t think I’ll make 52, but I might get close, especially if I count books that I read to the kids or so that I can discuss with them.

    I’m so excited to be following you!
