March 2021 Goals.

Wednesday, March 3, 2021

Happy, happy Wednesday!! It's hump-day, and y'all, the weekend is looking reeeeaaaallll nice. 

Today I'm recapping how I did on my February goals, as well as setting my March goals. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the show!!

I'll be using Y as in yes (completed) and N as in no (not completed). 

RELATIONSHIPS/FRIENDS

Y Reach out to one friend a week. - I tried to talk to one friend a week, through text, FaceTime, in-person, and successfully achieved that!!

Y Send a letter to my long-distance friend. 

Y Celebrate February birthdays. - We don't have any February birthdays in my family, but I reached out to some of my friends who do. 

HEALTH/FITNESS/WELLNESS

Y Quiet time every day.

Y Bible in one year.

Y Drink 64 ounces of water 20 days out of the month. - A BIG ole yes!! This month I really tried to focus on my water intake. I didn't hit it exactly 20 days out of the month, but I did still get the amount that equals 20 days. Does that make sense? 64 ounces of water 20 days is equal to 1,208, and I drank 1547 ounces of water!! 

Y Go to bed by 9:45 most nights. - Another yes!! I was much better about getting to bed this month!!

Y Workout 5 days a week. - It wasn't exactly "working out," but I either walked, worked out, etc. at least 5 days a week!!

Y Close all Apple Watch rings 23 days out of the month. - Closed it every day!!

N Run 10 times. - Yeah, this did not happen 😂 I ran once. 

Y Power walk/run on rest days. 

FAMILY/FUN

Y Go on a picnic with Anna and Huddy. - It was indoor, but yes!!

N Go to the tennis courts with Anna and Huddy. 

N Have a family lunch on the porch. - I ate with Huddy, but that was it. 

N Set up the hammocks.

Y Celebrate Valentine's Day.

Y Go to the lake with  my grandparents.

Y Go to the coffee shop with Anna.

N Go to Huddy's first tournament. - Haha!! This did NOT happen!!

Y Watch the Superbowl with my family. 

N Watch Hamilton with Huddy. - We watched about 20 minutes of it and then stopped. 

ORGANIZATION

Y Clean out closet. 

Y Clean out nightstand.

N Work on organizing planner. - I just got busy and couldn't find the time. 

BLOG

Y Post 3-5 times a week.

Y Redesign blog.

Y Focus on quality over quantity. 

Y Stop doing weekly wrap-ups. - I just felt like my content was getting too repetitive with Friday favorites, what's up Wednesday, and weekly wrap-ups, so I decided to put the hold on them. 

Y Continue prewriting blog posts. 

Y Brainstorm.

N Work on an upcoming blog series. - I have an idea, but I didn't do any brainstorming. 

Y Brainstorm for a possible book week. - I have a few ideas, but I'm not sure if it's going to happen or not.  

N Work on recipes. 

RANDOM

Y Orthodontist appointment. 

N Start watching Gilmore Girls again. 

Y Read 15 books.

N Work on oatmeal recipe. - I've given up on this. Oatmeal is pretty gross.

  2. You did a great job on your goals! Your handwriting on the envelope to your friend is so nice. I also need to organize my craft room. It's become a dumping ground, so it quite the mess.

    1. Yes, definitely!! I can get very anti-social and introverted, so that is something that I'm really trying to work on. Especially now!

  10. LOL! I think oatmeal is pretty gross too; unless it's made into crunch granola or a cookie (with chocolate chips not raisins) I want nothing to do with it. Great job on your goals. Keep it up.
