So, it appears this year is already racing by like a freight train. Feels like the new year just started and now we are already finishing up the first month. I figured it would be a good time to review how this month went in terms of accomplishments.
Well, for starters, I finished reading 12 books for January. At this level, I should have no problem completing my 52 book goal for the year, although I do think my reading will taper off once a full-time job reappears in my life. Might as well enjoy the extra reading hours while I can! I also started doing some creative writing short stories and have completed two of them so far. I found a website that has a list of over 100 scenarios to write about so for the last two days I've picked one of topics and started writing. Kind of a fun way to get the mind turning and much more productive than endless hours of tv.
Wilson has been on several walks, sometimes two a day, so he is a happy camper. I've also done a few longer walks on the trails when the weather has been nice. Lately it's been a roller coaster...yesterday it got up to 72 degrees and today it's in the high 40's/low 50's. Still better than those sub-zero temps back in MN! As for other exercises, I've been on the exercise bike a few times and did a couple exercise videos sporadically throughout the month. I am hoping I can get into a better routine in February.
Speaking of February, I've decided on a couple monthly goals: I am giving up the McDonald's coffee for the month and going to try and do the 30 Day Shred dvd too (well, for 28 days anyway). Other than that, it will be more job hunting, more long walks and hopefully a fun activity here and there.
Until next time...
