  • 2012 Resolutions in Review: February

    I set what I thought were some very doable goals for 2012, but I was feeling overwhelmed by the sheer volume of things on my to-do list last month.

    I think things are now getting back on track with my new time-management strategy.

    In the meantime, progress on my 2012 goals stalled in February. Here are the two resolutions I set at the beginning of the year:

    1. I’m going to master a new healthy habit each month.

    2. I’m going to tackle 52 projects during the year – one each week.

    My monthly healthy habit for February was to exercise and stretch every day. The stretching fell by the wayside pretty quickly, and even the exercise stopped when my plantar fasciitis was compounded by pain in the ball of my foot. I’ve decided to forego the cardio for a while and focus just on the stretching. So my healthy habit for March is to stretch and do some yoga every day.

    While I was trying to figure out my new time-management strategy, my weekly projects also fell by the wayside. I still really like the idea though, so I’m picking back up with those. My project for the first week of March will be to get the tax documents to our accountant!
