Goals Progress, February 2017

February was definitely better than January. I still have alot to do, but I also have another 10 months left in the year.

Read 17 Books- Right now I’m about halfway through “Coraline”, by Neil Gaimen and  3/4 through “You are a Badass,” by Jenn Sicaro.

Finish making Christmas Gifts by Thanksgiving- I’ve started a pair of socks for one of my aunts, and while cleaning my office found several other pairs about half finished.

Learn 12 songs on the Banjo- Still no progress on this one yet.

Hike the Neusiok Trail- I’ve made some progress here. I would have liked to have this done by now, and probably I’m only about 1/3 finished.

Explore and take photos locally- Still doing this. Mostly this has been limited to my hikes on the Neusiok, but with the arrival of spring I’d like to see the gardens at Tryon Palace in New Bern and Airlie Gardens in Wilmington if I can take the time for a day trip down there.

Travel internationally- Jon has been talking about going back to Edinburgh this year, which I would LOVE, still not sure if I can make it happen though.

Create 12 Illustrations I love- I am working on a few digital illustrations, one inspired by swallow tattoos and the other of a flowering magnolia tree. I’ve also been reformatting and creating larger files of some of my older illustrations to put up on society6. Mostly this was pretty easy, but still time consuming.

Document my life using Happy Planner and Project Life- I’ve been keeping up with my planner, because I’m a disorganized trainwreck without it. I need to order photo prints to keep up with project life though.

Volunteer with Habitat for Humanity- Not yet.

Have an organized and functional office and finish our bedroom- Working on it.

Grow more food- Still early in the year, so all I’ve done is start a bunch of strawberry seeds.

Become a yoga teacher- I’ve gotten back to regular yoga practice, going to class 2-3 times per week. Now I need to focus on making it a daily habit, even if its just 10 minutes of stretching as part of my morning routine. And I have plans to check out a few teacher training programs this month.

Make healthy habits a priority- I’ve been much healthier recently than I was during the holidays and the start of the year. I’ve gone back to using the MyPlate app on my phone to track my eating, excercise, and how much water I drink. I’m feeling much better. For March I’m going to focus on my morning routine, healthy snacks, water, and yoga every damn day.

I still have work to do, but overall I’m feeling much more positive than I was last month. What goals are you working towards? How are you progressing?
