16 Goals for 2016 - Progress Report #2

Wow, the end of June already. It never ceases to amaze me how fast the year flies by. I'm really not doing well with my goals this year, which is discouraging, but I'm trying not to get too down from it. I'm doing my best and that's all that matters. Here is the recap for the first 6 months of 2016.

1. Run my 4th 5k Still not going well. At this rate, this will totally not be happening.
2. Read 35 books I'm super slacking on this one, by like 30 books or so. Dang.
3. Learn to knit a baby sweater I have the wool but need to actually start it!
4. Renovate main floor of house In progress, the kitchen is currently being done.
5. Journal at least 5 times a month I was great the first few months but haven't been doing so well lately.
6. Take a photography class
7. Try 12 new recipes I lost count after 2...
8. Start one good habit a month January-flossing, February-drinking more water, March-weekly dates with Dan, April-making the bed, and then I stopped starting new habits.
9. Build a big chicken run We really need to get started on this!
10. Take a weekend getaway with Dan The June one didn't happen, so we need to plan another one.
11. Make a monthly budget I hate budgets.
12. Reach goal weight of 117 lbs TOTALLY COMPLETED!!!! Although I have since gone back down, but I'm still counting it as a success because I got there.
13. Try container/raised bed vegetable gardening I have 5 containers going right now with zucchini, cucumber and tomatoes.
14. Go to the gym at least 8 times a month Succeeded in January and then stopped mid February due to chest pains. Since February, I have gone twice. I suck.
15. Complete a French exercise book I have finally started the book, so at least it's now in progress.
16. Find a new go to hairstyle I have totally found a new hairstyle I like and am using quite frequently. You can see how cute I am in it in the picture below.


Still only one thing completed. Sigh, I don't think this is going to be my year for goals. I made too many that depended on being awesome every month, which is too hard. Next year, smaller more attainable goals is the goal.

How is everyone else doing?

  1. You are doing better than me. I didn't set any goals. Well, not any SMART ones. I did have a long discussion with my dd a couple of months ago about how I might make my home based business fit in better with family life. It's not going badly, have made some changes.

    I love your new hairstyle and before I read the comments on your goals I wondered if you had put on a couple of pounds, as you look so healthy in the photo. Don't take that the wrong way at all, I"m a clumsy writer. I know it's something that is always on your list as 'eat healthily' is on mine! Well done with your limited progress though.

  2. You look great in the photo and at least you made goals! And you never specified the type of books to read, so haul out your berenstain bear collection and cross off the 35 books! ;)

  3. I'm relieved to know I'm not the only one setting goals a little too high and not being able to achieve them!
