January Love List Update

Wow. January is almost over already!

I just wanted to post a quick update on my Love List progress.

Things I've done well so far:

  • Kept on top of my priorities. (27 days in my new Moleskine planner. Each day has a ton of crossed off to-dos. I've also not procrastinated on any important task this month.)
  • Exercise. (Almost every other day for most of January.)
  • Blog once per week. (This is my 8th post this month.)
  • Purge stuff. (We unloaded like 15 bags of stuff to the Salvation Army a week or so ago. More to come!)
  • Blog design. (Moved forward one step, as I re-launched blog on the platform I'm going to use going forward. Design is next!)
  • See more movies. (Movies in the theater, I've seen recently: Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, twice, The Muppets, Alvin and the Chipmunks, and Mission Impossible.)
  • Go bowling. (Took the kids!)

Works in progress:

  • Take more photos. (I've taken more, but not a significant number and mainly only the kids.)
  • Read one book per month. (I seriously need to get on this. I started off good, but haven't read in probably 10 days.)
  • Re-connect with friends. (Another thing I started off doing well, but failed the last week or two. Changing that this weekend and next, hopefully!)

FAIL or Starting Later

  • Go to more shows. (A few good shows are coming up!)
  • Go camping. (Need to make reservations soon!)
  • Spontaneus weekend trip. (Nothing yet.)
  • Create an iPhone app. (Have an idea, but no progress yet.)
  • Meditate every week. (Totally failed on this.)
  • Move my career forward. (No progress yet.)

I'll post a recap like this at the end of each month to update my progress. How are you doing on your goals or love list?
