January Progress + February Goals


February GoalsIt is so hard to believe that January is basically over. Given that this is the last day in the month, I have spent the past couple of hours cross-checking my January goals with what I actually accomplished. Here is where I stand.

January Goals

  • Purge unwanted items and organize my closet (Halfway done… Still need to organize my closet)
  • Read “Year of Yes” and “Daring Greatly” (I have two chapters left in “Year of Yes,” and I didn’t start the second book)
  • Create board recruitment plan for The Red Pump Project (Plan made… Now need to execute)
  • Plan February blog content series (Yes, I’m excited!)
  • Connect in-person with at least one of my girlfriends (It felt good to have some face-to-face time with some of my fav gals)
  • Post a blog entry 1-3 times a week (Yay!)
  • Pray for a stronger marriage (This has been on my heart for the past few months… God is working in this area)

I didn’t get everything done but I’m proud of what I did accomplish. Looking ahead to next month, I need to do a better job of keeping myself accountable. I didn’t pay much attention to my tending list so I will put that in a more visible place where I can check my status more often. One thing wasn’t on my list was to get back into public speaking but I did. Last week, I was invited to talk to a group of high school students about my career in marketing. It was fantastic. Plus, it was good practice for returning to work. I had to wake up early, get Caleb ready and out the door, and put on real clothes!


Looking ahead, below are my key February goals.


  • Update decor in master bedroom
  • Launch 8th annual Rock the Red Pump campaign
  • Volunteer once
  • Introduce “13:13” content series on the blog


  • Exercise 30 minutes at least three times a week
  • Meal plan and cook 3-4 times a week


  • Pray for strength to balance “it” all
  • Read devotional in women’s bible
  • Replace coffee with tea

The biggest change will be my return to work in a couple of weeks. While this will certainly make my life more complicated, it will also add back in some structure to my day. Structure that I hope will be beneficial to my productivity.

How are you tracking on your goals for 2016?

    So how about I’m right there with you with my goals for the month. A couple of my goals for this month are to plan out blog content for Feb just like you and work on batch blog writing. I’m ready to get to it!
