January non-resolution recap

Sometime in the early part of this month, I made a list.  I promptly forgot all about it.  So, to recap and remind, here it is below with what I did and didn't and sort of did do.

  • To finish my thank you cards by the end of the second week of January and mail them. DONE! JAN 10
  • To empty and sort the junk drawers  NOT DONE.  Oops.  On to next month.
  • To go through my closet and pare down the amount of clothes I have in there. DONE! JAN 22
  • To go through a couple of the boxes now littering the basement. Pare down, delegate, toss, etc.  SORT OF DONE.  I got rid of three more boxes and will clean out a few more when Lyn comes to visit.
  • Organize my sewing area and set up my sewing machine. SORT OF DONE.  I have organized the room better, started planning where things will go, but still no table set up.  I keep forgetting to get it from the church.
  • To eat more responsibly this includes: SORT OF DONE, BUT NOT REALLY  This I have not done so well with.  I have brought more lunches to work (Yay me!) but the Tim's and take out is still my weakness.  
    • One take out or restaurant meal a week
    • One Timmy's tea a week (one cream and sugar)  
    • Limited pop intake
    • Bring lunches to work
    • Small amounts of snack or dessert -- not nothing, but just a little of some things
  • Walk the dog more often or for longer at one time  NOT DONE.  It's been -30 and/or blizzarding steadily for the last few weeks.  When the weather was good, we went.  Not good, not going.
  • Work out on the Wii and the elliptical every week (at least 3 times in total) SORT OF DONE I still haven't tried the elliptical, but the Wii has been fun.  I've worked out on it at least three times a week (even going five one week!) and will keep at it.  I haven't lost any weight, but I'm feeling better and hoping that counts.
So, for February, I plan to keep hacking away at this list.  I would like to lose one inch of my waist (so far, I've lost it but it's under my belly) and to try not to overdo it when I go out to see Kyfor a week.


  1. Hang in there, Girl, you can do it. Slowly but surely.
    Tanya and I looked at bathroom scales in Comfy Electronics store yesterday. Most go to 150 kg and a few go to 180 kg. My kind of weigh scales. We decided we didn't want to know.

  2. Feeling better always counts!

    you are building muscle. scales don't count.
    i'm impressed. i got my husband to do most of the organizing stuff on my to do list. that counts?
