I haven’t done this in a long time. But I’m going to start trying to get better at it (see my 2018 list in the sidebar). I’m thinking I may start scheduling out my days more and put blog posts and other projects in as appointments. Every year there is so much I want to accomplish but never do. I’m just wasting my days!

My Christmas was really great. I got a cute Michael Kors purse and a few other things I was really hoping for. I spent a lot of time at home. Got sick with bronchitis, then got sick again. I think it’s been the cold weather. It’s been below freezing a lot and I’m just not used to that here! I’m hoping for an early spring. I am most definitely a warm weather girl.

I hit my reading goal on Goodreads. Even surpassed it by about 20 books. I’ve read a lot of awesome ones so far this year too. That’s another thing I want to spend more time on this year. Books! I have so many unread books on my bookcase and on my kindle. I’ve cut out some tv viewing by removing things from the DVR to give myself more reading time.

I started weight watchers toward the end of December and I have lost 8.3 pounds. It’s been a lot easier and a lot more effective than I expected it to be! I really wish I’d joined sooner. The only physical activity I’m doing is getting my 12,000 steps on my fitbit but once it’s warmed up a bit outside I’m planning to start using some exercise equipment in our garage. 

I can’t believe it’s already February 1st! How has your 2018 been so far? What are your plans for the year?

Currently listening to: (book) When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon and (music) Let the Record Play by Moon Taxi
