Be up & doing {1} Recap.

This was my first month setting some specific goals and I'm really excited about how they turned out!

1. Serve more. You might want to ask the hubs, but I think I did a really good job of this! After the few week or so, it kind of became a habit and I didn't keep track of whether or not I cleaned one thing each day. But I can for sure say that our living room, dining room, and kitchen have been consistently clean for the past month. And we've loved it!

2. Be healthier. Phew...this one was a challenge for sure. Getting up before the sun on the coldest days of the year is no fun thing at all. But I did it! Some weeks I went more than 3 times, the first week I only went 2x. I saw progress and am excited to continue this habit.

3. Be more intentional. This one was so easy! I love sending letters and actually send them out a lot...I had just gotten out of the groove over the last few months. It was great to get back into the habit of doing it and I sent out tons of mail lovin' this month!

So the verdict is that I love setting goals and am definitely doing this again next month. While I am excited to share my February goals- they will bring some changes to this 'ole blog. Good changes, for sure. 

How's your new years resolution going? Or did you set some goals?  Its never to late to start :)

great job on your goals! i have been pushing myself the last week or so to get up and work out before work. it's so hard to get out of bed, but so worth it!

I love how you set goals each month. It seems more manageable and doable! :) I might have to think about doing that!! :)

Good job! One of my goals was to, like you, serve more by keeping my house clean. It's definitley not easy, but the pay-off was huge!

yay for maintaining your goals! I read a blog where she cleans her bathrooms in 10 minutes MAX and I figured, if she can, I can (cause I hate bathrooms) and its sooo easy. spray spray spray everything, then follow w/a DRY washcloth! Bam! Done. Love it.
