I know there are probably a lot of blog posts being written today that start with something along the lines of "I can't believe it's February already!!!" I can. January seemed really long to me for some reason, and I'm not sure why. Since it is a new month though, it's time to revisit my goals for January
and establish new ones for February.
Goal one - Take better care of myself
I went to Lush and bought myself some pretty smelling soaps. I also replaced the crappy conditioner I was using with a better one and a conditioning treatment. I can already see a difference in my hair! I definitely shaved my legs more than twice and even used a self tanner a few times. The polish on my nails is all chippy though. Dang.
Goal two - Floss EVERY DAY.
Big fat FAIL. I started off strong the first week and a half. It was pretty cool because this time my gums only bled the first three days, not for a week and a half like last time I tried this. Then I got sick, and all that flossing went by the wayside. I never took it up again. Why must this be so hard for me???
Goal three - Take off eye makeup before bed.
Again, this goal started out strong. I bought some makeup remover wipes and I'd do it while I was watching television at night. I missed a few nights, but I think I got it off more nights than I missed. I need to work harder on this.
Goal four - Get organized!
I did really well on this. I cleaned out the bathroom medicine cabinets when I switched the bathrooms, and I also cleaned out and organized under the bathroom sinks. The pantry got an overhaul and cleaning out too. It is no longer scary and I no longer drop crap on my head when I look for stuff. It's nice!
Goal five - Eat more stuff that's good for me
I've definitely been doing better on this one. My food aversions seem to have gone away for the most part. I'm eating more regular food at home and have added in a lot of fruits and veggies that I was missing before. I can't even tell you how many clementines I've had! I do think I need to start eating bananas (gross) though,
because I've been waking up with my calves feeling very tight and I think that means my old friend Charley Horse may be ready to start making his visits soon.
Here are my goals for February:
Goal one - Participate in the February Photo A Day Challenge.
All through January I kept seeing this little prompt pop up on Facebook and Twitter, but I ignored it at first. After a while though, I thought it looked fun how people were putting their own interpretations on the prompts for each day. I decided I'd try it for February. At the very least it will help me to have more photos in my Project Life album, right? Details here
Here's my photo for day one.
Don't worry - I don't plan on posting them each day. I may just do it once a week. I will be doing them all with Instagram. You can follow me there - my name is splendidmissm.
Goal two - Work on the before bed routine for myself
This includes the flossing and makeup removal things.
Goal three - Clean out the misc. cupboard in the kitchen and swap it with the pots and pans cupboard. I think they'll work better this way. Also, we do NOT need that George Foreman grill anymore. We haven't used it once since we moved in here!
Goal four - Finish the December Daily. Really. Get some printer ink and another package of photo paper and just do it already!
Also I wanted to note ...
I was 19 weeks on Sunday. I started to feel the little baby flutter movements near the end of week 17. By the end of last week, the kicks were more definite and would happen in little groups. Last night, this baby was kicking hard enough that I could see it from the outside. My husband saw it too. She's just growing so fast in there! I checked my blog archives (which is yet another reason why blogging is awesome) and I didn't see Bubba move until 23 weeks. Crazy!
Last year I posted this photo of a very simple garland I made. This year, I was too lazy to decorate for Valentine's day. However, I would like to offer you those vintage Valentine printables again in case you'd like to make one for yourself. Just "Like" my Facebook page
