2011 is Half Over- Checking in with my New Year’s Resolutions…

Happy July 1st!

I figured in honor of the year being half over already, I would take a look at my New Years resolutions and see how that’s working out for me.  

Here is the original post.

And the last time I revisited them…

When we last visited my Resolutions, the score was:

Resolutions 5 Me 4 TBD 1

Let’s see where we are now..  Drumroll please…

New Years Resolution #1- Post more! 

Revisited result: January= 14 posts, February =19 posts.

Since Then: March=12, April=10, May=14 & June=13

Not too shabby.. I’m definitely writing more than once a week! 

Resolutions 0  Me 1

New Years Resolution #2- We are going to find financial health this year. 

This one is still eluding me. We had gotten completely caught up, and seriously, not 2 days later we were back up the creek without a paddle. Somehow, we are managing to keep our heads above water. We just went through the second time this year that hubby hasn’t worked for two weeks or more. They “claim” that they are booked through the end of the year… but that remains to be seen and I don’t believe it until it actually happens. But I’m trying really really hard to get ahead instead of behind.

Resolutions 1 Me 1

New Years Resolution #3- Patience.

I’m not sure where I stand on this one right now. I try. That’s all I can really say. I won’t chalk this one up as a win just yet.

Resolutions 2 Me 1

New Years Resolution #4- more Weight Loss.

This is definitely a big change from last time!  I may have to give myself 2 points… I joined the gym at the end of May. I have been going 5-6 days a week, I have lost 3 pounds and a couple of inches. Now the trick is keeping it up!

Resolutions 2 Me 2 (To be fair, I only gave myself 1, although I deserve 2! 🙂 )

New Years Resolution #5- POTTY TRAINING!  

SCORE! We had a major break through last week, and she’s doing great! We just need to get her to go on the potty when she’s wearing underwear. Baby steps! I’ll totally take her running around naked peeing on the potty to clothes and diapers any day,

Resolutions 2 Me 3

As for 6-10…

#6 Read more.   I was doing pretty well. I made my summer reading list, which I actually crossed a few off the list. I need to get back to it though. But I made some progress so, 1 for me!

#7  house cleaner, purge the junk.  Still a work in progress. I am determined to not suffer from CHAOS (Can’t Have Any One Over Syndrome) any longer.  

#8 Not be so lazy about cooking dinner every night.  Doing better.. although I ate a lot of Wendy’s while the Teen was a camp. Its way too hard sometimes to just cook for me and the Maniac.  I’ll give myself half a score.

#9 Go to my 20th High School Reunion if there is one. Well.. it was supposed to be in July, then it got changed to October, and the last I heard it was cancelled due to lack of interest.  So, I am going to change this goal to Take a Trip Back to the Burgh by the end of the year.

#10 actually make time for myself. Again, this is still really hard. Although going to the gym is the one thing I totally do for me.  My new motto, is “Sometimes I just have to do Me.” Which is true. I can’t worry about everyone all the time without worrying about me sometimes.

Resolutions 4.5 Me 5.5

Hmmm.. it seems half way through the year I have the edge. Who woulda thunk it?
