December goals…I rocked the chocolate!

I’m putting together my January goals, but first, let’s see how I did with my December goals:

1) Bake with Jay at least twice a week (and not get worked up when he spits in the mixing bowl or blows flour all over the counter).

Check! We baked a lot.  Just look at my midsection. And I embraced the spitting…and the flinging of raw egg when he started waving the mixing spoon around like a lasso.

2) Read Scripture during my nursing sessions a minimum of 3 times a day.

There were some days where I majorly failed this one, and boy did I feel that lack of Scripture in my life on those days.  Joy would wane, peace would disappear, and fears and anxieties would arise.  Scripture is soul-filling my friends.  I NEED to make it a priority.

3) Go on at least 1 group walk with my walking group.

Fail again.  I was all set and ready to go one week, and then I got mastitis.  And then with the holidays, well…January, we’re coming for you!  Slowly, and with crying babies in tow, but we will walk!

4) Read 3 or more books a day with Jay.

Success!  We checked out and read dozens upon dozens of books from the library.  And bonus, I managed to avoid accruing any (more) library fees!

5) Clean my house. 

I did! Once….because grandma came over and I needed her to know that I wasn’t letting her son and grandson live in a pigsty. And because this is what it looked like:

And a bonus goal: Eat one piece of chocolate every day.

I totally rocked this goal *pats self on the back*

How about you?  Have you ended December feeling good about what you accomplished?

    That’s the problem with setting such specific goals isn’t it, what if you don’t make it? I try to keep my goals a bit more vague, I find it much less pressure that way (or is that defeating the object?) Congrats on the Chocolate achievement, that must have been tough!!!

      Hey Julia – yea, specific goals can be hard to keep up with…that’s why I do it on a monthly basis 🙂 I get a fresh start each month 🙂

    haha Yay for that once a month cleaning fairy that appears! Love it and that you enjoyed a piece of chocolate each day. 😉 Scripture is soul-filling indeed. That’s how I use to speed my time nursing as well. Definitely keeps you centered.

    Great goals! I love that reading library books and baking were your goals! I am sure your little loved all those memories as well!
