January Goals - February Goals

I had two goals in January - 1. No alcohol, and 2. Drink a green smoothie every day. I give myself an A on the booze and a C on the smoothies.

Physically I felt so much better not having a daily cocktail. The best part was the sleep. I slept SO much better and as a result had much more energy in general. Hallelujah! Also, I felt more hydrated. And my pants fit better. I hope this was enough of a reset to help me be even more conservative with  alcohol than I was before. When I set this goal my husband said he was surprised because I drink so little. But even that little bit affected me negatively. So cheers to less drinking.

I got a little bored with the smoothies. But in setting this goal I overcame some of my laziness of getting out my blender and rinsing it right away. Overall, it was good. I missed a bunch of days when we ran out of bananas.

For February, I'm tempted to be really ambitious and say I'm going to get up at 5 every morning, but no. I just can't.

February goals:

1. Read to my kids every day. I already missed Day 1.

2. Take my blood pressure daily and record it... because I have a touch of hereditary high blood pressure. Fun times, I'm almost 35!


January gave us 2 glorious snow days which is rare for where we live. It was a great time to cozy up and be together as a family. The kids loved the snow and we loved even more coming in to warm up by the fire. It was a little bit magical.

Bring in on, February!


Do you have any goals?


  1. Love the idea of monthly goals!! I might make a goal around exercise - my kids don't need me to walk them to school daily and I am missing that exercise (my pants are getting tight - sighhhh). Also, I have a friend who only eats dessert on weekends which seems like a good goal in that direction, too.

  2. What's going on with your house?

  3. Just bought smoothie ingredients! thanks for the inspiration.
