2014 Goals Update!

I figured it was time to provide an update on my goals for 2014. Especially since there have been some changes, adaptations if you will.

The original post with descriptions is here. But an abbreviated list for your viewing pleasure:
1. Lose 100 pounds
2. Consistent Gym Attendance
3. Financial Overhaul
4. Graduate May 24th
5. Tile shower
6. Do one house project per month
7. Bedtime Reading Every night with our kids
8. post once per week and do a giveaway a month
9. Stock my Etsy store
10. Breastfeed for at least one year
11. Follow a cleaning schedule
12. Improve 5k times

I'm working on all of them, but for today's update I want to focus on number 8. Number 8 is all about my blogging goals, specifically posting and giveaways. I've rocked this goal so far, averaging not 1 but 2 posts per week! I've actually expanded this goal  so that I hope to be posting daily by October! My hope is to do themed posts, Monday one thing, Tuesday another, etc, so that if you're here for the house projects, you know to check in on, say, Wednesday. If you're here for organizing challenge stuff you know to pop over on Tuesday, and so on. I've been working hard at planning and getting posts queued up and I'm excited to see how I/we can grow this blog. I am very much enjoying the writing outlet and I'm looking forward to the year to come.

Giveaways, I'm rocking this too. Last month I gave away a Plum Paper Planner. I actually got the shipping notification yesterday, I can't wait until Heather gets her new planner. I hope she loves it as much as I love mine. I also have a great skincare giveaway lined up for the end of this month, so stick around!

And, because I like to be thorough, a quick update on all my goals:

1. Lose 100 pounds
- I'm working on it. I ran into some milk supply hiccups so I'm re-adjusting
2. Consistent Gym Attendance
- so far, not good. I will try again for February
3. Financial Overhaul
-I'm working on it. Thankfully, this week's organizing challenge is a good start. 
4. Graduate May 24th
-I've had my first official capstone committee meeting, and I'm deep into revisions for chapters 1-3
5. Tile shower
-I went down to the basement once, does that count? 
6. Do one house project per month
-yes! We did a little one in January and tackled a fairly big one in March! 
7. Bedtime Reading Every night with our kids
-Nailed it
8. post once per week and do a giveaway a month
-rocked it
9. Stock my Etsy store
-I'm working on it. I've made some invitations and some printables.
10. Breastfeed for at least one year
-We have good days and bad days
11. Follow a cleaning schedule
-slowly but surely. We're nailing the diaper laundry anyway
12. Improve 5k times
-signed up for my next 7k, does that count?
