Well, it's been a short month and the last time I did this was technically on Feb. 7th
, so I haven't really given myself too much time to make any changes, but since it is the first of the month, and since I don't feel like working at the moment, I'm going to go over my 2005 Resolutions and see how I've been doing.E= Excellent. Completed.VG=Very Good. Not quite all the way there but almost.OK=Ok. Right down the middleNSG=Not So Good. NAM=No Attempt Made.
Okay, here it goes:
- Floss my teeth six days out of seven each week....okay fine, floss my teeth daily.OK. Have averaged about 3x time a week, which is an improvement from last month.
- End exercise hiatus and get back to the gym.NSG/NAM. Have gone to the gym only 3x THIS MONTH.
- Take my vitamins every day and drink more water.NSG. Only took my vitamins about 3 times this month. And am most definitely not drinking enough water.
-Watch less tv.NAM. American Idol seriously hurting the efforts. Also, with the rains, I've laid around the couch and watched tv a lot.
-Travel - take short trips and take one out-of-country tripVG. Have decided not to go sailing in Greece but will likely go to London/Paris with my aunt later this year. Am planning on going up to San Francisco next month. Also going to Vegas at the end of April!
-Learn...stuff. By taking classes and reading more.OK. I think that writing the UNTITLED KATE & SAREET NOVEL constitutes as learning. Plus I'm seriously thinking about trying to learn how to write Chinese. Might pick up a book and start trying again.
-Set up a tithe-ing plan and donate money regularly to a cause I supportNAM
-Get to work earlier and spend my time more productively at workNSG. I'm upgrading from last month because I've actually shown up to work a little bit earlier than normal this week. Also have been taking shorter lunches.
-Dress more appropriately for work. No more fleece at the office, even on hump days.NSG. Am beginning to give up on this one. I find the green sneakers I'm wearing far more comfortable than anything else in my closet. Also accidentally wore flipflops to work the other day.
-Network moreNSG. Have gone out to meet people but not nearly enough.
-Stay on the budget that I madeOK. Have adjusted the budget slightly to make it easier to stick with. Also made some pocket cash from poker so that was good. And I set up an automatic deduction for my car insurance, which should help. Also adjusted tax thing at work so that more is taken out so that I can get a bigger refund next year. Or at least not owe money.
Here are Pig's resolutions for 2005:
1.) Take a long walk (at least 1/2 hr) each day and/or go to the dog park.OK. Have been walking her to work a lot more often, although the rain did keep us indoors for several days. Not our fault though.
2.) Brush teeth every other day. Okay fine, brush teeth every day.NSG/NAM. Only brushed teeth about two times this month.
3.) Brush fur once a week.NAM.
So okay. Much better than last month. I think that the exercising is pretty sad, and I really need to work on the NAM's
but overall, I think I would give myself an "MUCH IMPROVED" rating. Better than last month's rating of "SHITTY." We'll see how this month goes.
