Make a Plan

Monthly Goals | January

January 1, 2015 | 2 comments



(✔) WORK: I finished the volume calculations, prepared a talk, and presented my research at a conference, but I didn’t finish the sample inventory.
(✔) ADMINISTRATION: I made a budget for 2015 and submitted the health insurance clearance forms.
(✘) HOME: We decorated for Christmas, but didn’t get new curtains or donate clothes to Goodwill.
(✔) HEALTH: I ate more fruit and vegetables, and drank more water. I also walked over 44 km and reached my goal of walking 300 km before the end of the year (although I forgot to log all of it with RunKeeper). I had new x-rays taken of my wrists but didn’t look into yoga and spinning classes for the spring.
(✔) FUN: I finished my crochet project, bought Christmas and birthday presents, started reading the Hans Christian Andersen Fairy Tales, went to a concert (Jason Mraz – awesome!) and two shows (Cirque du Soleil’s Kurios in San Francisco and Le Rêve in Las Vegas), and had a great vacation with family.
