16 Goals for 2016 - Progress Report #1

I can't believe a quarter of the year is already over and spring is just around the corner. Craziness! Although it is calling for snow tomorrow, so maybe spring isn't as close as I hope. This post is one day late, because I'm off my game. Such is life.

1. Run my 4th 5k So totally not going well, I haven't even started training for it yet.
2. Read 35 books I've only read 5, need to step up my game here!
3. Learn to knit a baby sweater I have bought the wool and printed off the pattern, but that's it.
4. Renovate main floor of house Totally in progress! As you can see from the odd post I get around to putting up.
5. Journal at least 5 times a month So far a success.
6. Take a photography class
7. Try 12 new recipes Have tried 2 already.
8. Start one good habit a month January was flossing, February was drinking more water and March was going on weekly dates with Dan.
9. Build a big chicken run
10. Take a weekend getaway with Dan We have one planned for June.
11. Make a monthly budget Uhh... not really happening yet.
12. Reach goal weight of 117 lbs TOTALLY COMPLETED!!!! Yes, that needed all caps.
13. Try container/raised bed vegetable gardening I have the containers for it and now need to decide what I'm going to plant.
14. Go to the gym at least 8 times a month Succeeded in January and then stopped mid February due to chest pains. Hoping to get going again soon though.
15. Complete a French exercise book
16. Find a new go to hairstyle I have tried two so far, but neither of them are winners for everyday use.

So there you go, only one thing has been completed but I have started working on a bunch of them, which counts since quite a few of them are ongoing. How are you all doing with your goals? 


  1. That's a pretty good progress report! My one goal of finishing my colouring page before baby was born is sadly not complete. Maybe before the year is through I'll get it done!

  2. I'm sorry I pressured you to bump up your goal by so much, you should have stuck with your original plan of a year. You can do it though!
