{May Goals: Recap}

Remember when I did my May Goals post? Well, it's officially June folks. So let me do a quick recap of how I did.
  1. Read a book a week (or 5 a month)-- Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker, Fifty Shades Freed, The Happiness Project, The House on Oyster Creek
  2. Start studying for the LSAT again-- sort of, bough a groupon for an online course, but haven't used it yet
  3. Relax more-- Vacation, Check
  4. Do yoga for at least 20 minutes 5 times a week.
  5. Enjoy my friends more
  6. Make new friends-blog friends count right?
  7. lose 7 pounds-- not so much. p
  8. Get back in the gym--Although slightly deterred by the vacation, I'm doing better!
  9. Stick to an eating plan- Stupid vacation
  10. Get serious about job hunting-- Hopefully we'll have some news soon.
  11. Set up 2 random coffee dates-- fail
  12. Stick to a strict budget-- ehh... not really
  13. Visit the Doctor-it's a very long story, but no. I have an appointment on Monday though :)
  14. Drink more water- nope
  15. Plan a trip to Atlanta-nope
  16. Plan a different trip for August- not yet
  17. Keep my room cleaner-sorta?
  18. Re-organize my makeup situation-- currently its a hot mess
  19. Get rid of 10 pieces of clothing/shoes-- I don't have room.
  20. Oh Walk 10K a day-- Yep!
  21. Finish 1 DIY project. just one. 
  22. Execute a fabulous birthday party-- It was great, read here
  23. Re-design the blog-- I can't believe I failed on this one. I haven't had a ton of time to really look for a new design/designer I love, so recommendations are always appreciated. 
  24. Start taking pictures on my camera, not the old iPhone. 
  25. Drink less caffeine--fail.
  26. Get new running shoes.
  27. Pick a new computer-- See #12.
  28. Wash my face EVERY MORNING and EVERY NIGHT- not perfect, but much better
  29. Whiten my teeth.
  30. DON'T buy any new products unless I'm ABSOLUTELY out- Woohoo, Can't believe I actually did it!
  31. Treat myself to a mani-pedi-- because lets be honest, I deserve it. Especially if I achieve even half of these goals. 
Well... That's a lot of red. I did okay, but I could have done a lot better. I am liking this though, reflecting on personal growth each month. It's definitely keeping me accountable. I'm giving myself a mini-pass this month, because it was a really busy one, and I was gone for over a third of it, so... those 10 days don't count right? 

I want some time to think about my June Goals, so I'll try to get a post up about that sometime over the weekend.

I'm so glad it's finally Friday! woohoo! I have a semi-busy weekend planned with Nat's games (if it doesn't rain), costume parties and Blogger Blitz!!! So excited!!!

Hope y'all have a great one!

What did you think about The Happiness Project and The House on Oyster Creek?? I have heard of both of them!

Wil Harris said...

You may not have accomplished everything on your list but that's okay. You probably learned a lot about yourself just from this list. This is a good list! You're very brave for sharing this on your blog. Keep up the good work girly!!!

That's a lot of goals!! You did great! I look at them as anything achieved is a plus and more than before, right?

I LOVED the Happiness Project. It really makes you re-evaluate. I'd highly recommend it.

The House on Oyster Creek was a good story, but it was a little slow moving for my taste though.

Both good solid reads!
