Well it's the half year mark! That means it's time to see how I am tracking on the resolutions that I made back in January. Hmmm, so how am I doing?
MY NINE RESOLUTIONS FOR 2014
1) Lower my diabetes A1C to 7 from 8
I have to give myself an "IP" for in progress. As of today, my A1C has remained the same, it's not worse, not better. I still believe that I can achieve this goal by the end of the year!
2) Sign on 3 web design jobs
So far I have not done this goal, however I have done various web work, I just have not signed anyone on yet. So for right now I give myself a B- with the intent of signing up at least one client.
3) Find the job I want; part time, challenges me, allows me to use my skills, at a company that recognizes and rewards excellence. (does this even exist anymore?)
Good news on this! I have a job, part time, it has challenged me, it does allow me to use my skills. I just started recently but I am hopeful that there will be rewards in the future! I'll give myself an A!
4) Drink more water
Oooo - I gotta give myself a C+ so far on this but I promise myself to improve! I don't drink nearly enough water!
5) Walk increasing distances all year
I should have made this one Sleep increasing amounts all year! I have not gotten out to jog or walk but I am going to try! F-fail!
6) Do more with Chris
Well, I am trying to do more with Chris but we have had a rough year. I have definitely done more with him on my own but this one remains a tough one. C!
7) Publish another poetry book
Well I am happy to say that I do have a book of poetry written - I just have not published it yet. I hope to get that done by year end! A-
8) Meditate and de-stress
I have definitely learned to take deep breaths, rest, and do things to de-stress like gardening and cooking. More is needed, so I'll take a B!
9) Re-vamp my gardens in the Spring
So happy to say that I get an A+ for this! I have spent lots of time in the gardens, planting and moving things around, and for very little money. This helped me toward de-stressing as well and I am enjoying just watching things bloom through the summer so far.
So there it is - a mix of grades huh? I will check back on this by the end of the year and hopefully I can improve!
How are you doing on your resolutions? Comment and let me know!
It's me, just trying to get by.
