Blog post coming at you super late today, thanks to a rough week of school, no sleep (that I can’t even blame Chase for), and a baby who just wants to be held.
I just wanted to quickly pop in and do an update on my goals for this year. I think it’s important to to continually evaluate progress towards goals in order to stay committed. I’m planning to hold myself accountable by checking in with you all once a month. Anyone want to join me?
I shared my goals for 2018 in this post. Let’s check how it’s going.
Limit fast food to once a week.
To make this goal more achievable, considering how often we were eating fast food, I started with a smaller goal of limiting fast food to twice a week. So far Ryan and I have done pretty well. We’ve been using a meal planning service that helps us plan meals through the weekend, one of our worst times for eating out. Plus Ryan’s been cooking more; he doesn’t dislike cooking as much as I do and doesn’t make as many excuses to not make the meals we have planned.
Eat 5 fruits and vegetables a day.
I started with the goal of two fruits and two vegetables a day and am still struggling with this. I’m going to keep working on it and will hopefully have a better report next month.
Less screen time/social media.
I turned off notifications for Facebook and Instagram and am amazed at the difference this simple change has made.
How’s my big, scary goal going? Well, it started off really well-I’ve been posting consistently, shared on Facebook, and finally updated the name. Then I was hit with a huge wave of self-doubt that basically stopped me in my blogging tracks. I don’t know why I’m so self-conscious about having a blog. I know I need to get over it if I want this to go anywhere.
So some goals are going better than others; here’s to hoping February leads to more success!
How are you doing with your 2018 goals?
