Eek, I can’t believe it’s already July!! I wanted to take a quick minute before this holiday weekend to reflect on my New Year’s resolutions. I went back to my 2015 resolutions post and I’m sad to say I haven’t done very well. Here are what my goals were:
-Make one new recipe per week
-Read 40 books
-Walk/run at least 2 miles per day
-Keep my A1C below seven
-Change my lancet at least once a month
-Minimize alcohol drinking
-Try to blog once per week or at least 4 times per month
So let’s see, I haven’t learned Spanish. Nor have I been making one new recipe per week but I did make several new recipes thanks to Wildtree and Plated, so I won’t count that as a total fail. I’ve only read 10 books so far this year. According to Goodreads, I am 5 books behind schedule (although I changed my goal to 30 not 40 so I’m even further behind). Although, if you count children’s books, though, I’m WAY over haha.
I’m not nearly as active as I should be but thanks to FitBit challenges, I am sort of improving in that area. My latest A1C was 7.0 so I also didn’t keep my A1C BELOW 7. I haven’t been changing my lancets regularly (at least I’m testing often!). But this post reminded me to go do it so I’ve got it taken care of for July! I’m probably drinking more alcohol than I should be right now because I’ve been having a hard time recently but not as much as I was drinking before baby (hangovers are NOT fun with a baby so I limit my drinking so I don’t feel worse). With the exception of April, I have been blogging over 4 times a month so that is the ONE area where I’ve had success!
I definitely need to step up my game in the second half of the year. I think these goals are all achievable and now that my son is doing *slightly* better sleeping, I’m hoping that I can start to take better care of myself as well.
