February, I Hardly Knew Thee

I know February is a short month and all, but holy cow. We’re almost a quarter of the way through the year already. I better get started on my Christmas shopping!
This was a pretty good month. February is always a good month, though, because there are two holidays (no, not that one, the birthday ones) plus MY birthday.
Despite being colossally busy, I managed to do all right with the goals this month. WAY better than January!
Not that that’s hard…

February Goals

Go to two Group classes at the gym.  FAIL!
♥ Finish seeing the Best Picture nominees. (Django Unchained, Life of Pi, Zero Dark Thirty) SUCCESS!
♥ Read 4 books. SUCCESS! (Silver Linings Playbook, What Everyone Needs to Know about Islam, Just One of the Guys, Tangled to Death)
♥ Host an awesome Oscar Party. SUCCESS! (If I do say so myself.)
♥ Coordinate my calendars so that everything is updated on my phone. Still working on it. But getting there.
♥ Have a girls’ night with Mom. SUCCESS!
Create a menu plan and stick to it. Hahaha. I totally forgot this was even on my list.
♥ Get Bruce Wayne’s nails clipped. SUCCESS! I did it myself!
No watching the news for a whole week. FAIL! It’s so hard to give up…
♥ For reals. Watch that Netflix movie and send it back. SUCCESS!! It was The Artist, which I had already seen and loved. I just hadn’t gotten around to watching it because there were so many other things to do.

    March is going to be big month! I want to see the Grand Canyon! I finally cancelled my DVD Netflix subscription. They also sat around here for too long and the new releases were always "very long wait" so I'd just go to Redbox instead. It wasn't worth the money anymore.

    Have you tried listening to audio books while at the gym? Listening to the stories is one of the ways I'm able to enjoy books, even when I don't have a spare minute to sit and read for fun.

    When you write it down, it seems like you really did a lot. I think I need to do that, just so I can both see what I have done and to help me feel more productive. Sometimes I think that I barely did anything last month!

    You were really successful. Great job. I am reading The Walking Dead graphic novel this month for my goal. :)

    I think my first March goal will be to wear something other than yoga pants. Seems kind of ambitious though. I'm scared.

    You did great this month!

    I never made a list. I think I like it better that I didn't because I just wasn't feeling it.

    NO WAY! Going to Dallas is on MY list too!

    You got a lot done last month. Great job!

    Considering February is such a short month, you did amazing. Your March goals seem very ambitious, but with the success you are having, I know that you will do awesome!

    I thought I read 'eat breakfast 3 times a day'. It's late.

    And if you haven't seen the Grand Canyon, you'll love it! It's…awesome isn't even the word for it.
