February Review and New March Goals.

Here were my goals for February:
Read two books-- Success!  Reviews here.
Cook in my crock pot at least once-- Fail.  
Do something I've never done before-- Success!
Go to orchestra rehearsal three out of five weeks-- Fail.  I went twice.
Blog at least 16 times-- I blogged 15, so that's close. 

Buy no more than five meals per week-- I did really well on this early in the month.  Then I went to Dallas, and all hell broke loose...
Spend no more than $50 on beauty products-- Success!  I actually spent $0 on beauty products, which hasn't happened in a LOOOOONG time.
Save an additional $300 above my normal saving-- Well, this got spent on wedding items, which was the reason I wanted to save it.  So, not technically a success, but not an abject failure either.

Work out at least 4x a week-- There was one week where I only got two, but the other three weeks were a Success!
Try at least one new workout/class-- Success
Lose 5 lbs-- Success!  I actually lost 5.2 lbs.  :)

I actually did pretty well!  I REALLY need to rein my eating out though.  So, that's where I'm gonna focus my discipline this month.

My goals for March are basically the same with a few tweaks.

Cook in my crock pot

  1. congrats on the engagement!! and losing the 5 lbs. you had a seriously great month!

  2. Katie, you have inspired me! Congratulations on meeting your goals and good luck with your new ones. I am off to make my own goals.

  3. Great work! I'm in an orchestra too and sometimes it's hard to push myself to go to rehearsals. I didn't go last night. ;-)

  4. You aren't using your crockpot?! Are you crazy? Love that thing! :)

    Good job on the weight loss girl, I need to jump back on that!

  5. Way to go on your successes!!!!

  6. Nice work! It is SO hard to not eat out when traveling, am I right??? I try and set the same goals, but Nashville kind of messed that up for me!

  7. I was on a business/roadtrip with my dad when I read that you were engaged and I yelled. And then had to explain to my dad why I was so gosh dang excited someone I have never met is engaged.

    He didn't get it. HA.

    You did so well with your goals- you rock! Are you still doing hot yoga? I bet that helped with the weight loss and you are gaining muscle, too so I bet you lost more than it shows! yay!

  8. Great goals! I have a ton of easy recipes on my blog. A few are for the crock pot, including a super easy pot roast recipe. Great Sunday night dinner idea!

  10. This is such a great idea! Congrats on accomplishing your goals :) Mind I borrow the inspiration of this??

  11. your goals are great! And I'm impressed with how successful you were in Feb. I cooked in the crockpot three times last week and it was great. I'd forgotten how much I love it - super easy. Oh, and I cooked in it Tuesday, too. Coming home with food ready is amazing.
