February Goals Mid-Month Check In

I'm not quite ready for February to be more than half over, as evidenced by my goals. ;-) It's been a rough month so far for my productivity.


  • Stick to our budget - yes, we're on track, although we're over on dining out by $15. We'll pull the money from another budget to cover. 
  • Hand off all paperwork to our accountant - nope, and it's making me anxious. I'm 80% done collecting documents. I need to get the last few stragglers & get everything uploaded to our accountant. 
  • Save $1,500 - Yes! I've saved $2,500 so far. 
  • Model out the potential to rent our vacation house - Yes, although the numbers had a very high range. 
  • Fill out all licensing paperwork/get on waiting list for renting out our vacation house - I'm done, just need to get them mailed in with my check. 


  • Keep our February birthday trip in budget - Definitely in budget. We did well!
  • Have a date night with M - No, I need to get something set up for next weekend. 
  • Lock down the dates for the rest of the year (vacations, time off, etc). This includes M taking my dad & his buddies to LV for a milestone birthday, our family Hawaii trip, and a potential long weekend with M. - I've got one of three now locked in. 

  • Lose 2 pounds (trying to be realistic, as I'll be on vacation for a few days) - My weight is steady, which is good given my birthday & a trip. Still hoping to lose those two pounds!
  • Eat 5 servings of fruits & vegetables - I'm just under a daily average of 4, so I need to boost this up. 
  • Complete 7 stretching workouts (yoga or pilates) - I've done zero stretching workouts. :-( 
  • Complete 6 strength workouts - And, one strength workout. 
  • Complete 500 minutes of cardio - I've completed 255 minutes of cardio, so close to on track. 
  • Average 1450 calories/day - My average is 1604. I'm hoping that my surgery will help me get back in the lower calories. ;-) 
  • Run 5 times. Start working on 5K build up. - I haven't run once, & I NEED to start it up again! For my weight, sanity, and cardio endurance. 

  • Maximum of one late night/week - Yes! Finally!
  • Work from home at least one Friday this month - Yes, I've worked from home once, and hope to get in one more this month. 

  • Read four books - I've read 3 so far. 
  • Color in my adult coloring book - Not yet, but maybe next week when I'm home. 
  • Get together with a friend - I saw my best friend & sister last weekend, & we carved out girl time to go on a nice hike. 

That's it for me. How is your February going? Any course corrections necessary to achieve your monthly goals?

  1. Good for you on the birthday trip budget. You work so hard-I would have a hard time not splurging beyond my plan if I had your schedule.
