Monthly Goals | April

April 1, 2015 | 5 comments



(✔) WORK: I finished the last of the bubble images, started preparing for the conference presentation, but only wrote 1800 words (out of 2500 word goal) on my dissertation.
(✔) FINANCE: I got all my tax information together, payed off the last of my dental loan, and followed my budget.
(✘) HOME: I sorted through part of my closet, but didn’t clean my bookshelves or got new curtains.
(✔) HEALTH: I exceeded my goal of going to the gym 6 times (went 10 times) and walking 90 km (walked 110 km)! I started a food diary but didn’t write in it every day.
(✘) FUN: I didn’t go to knitting club, finish my crochet project, try a new recipe, go to the cinema, or send a letter, but I did read a classic (and I did a lot of other fun things that weren’t on my list like starting a community garden and going to a friend’s birthday party).
