Last week I started thinking about my new year resolutions…you know, like the ones I made back in January.
I did a blog post about four of the goals I wanted to work on this year (you can read that post HERE), and when I went back to look through them, I’m embarrassed to admit that I had completely forgotten about two of them.
So I’m doing a little accountability update today — and sharing this pretty yellow lace top I wore last week.
Here are the four goals I shared and how I’m doing on each of them:
Re-learn how to play the piano.
I started out great on this one. I found this YouTube channel by Dan the Composer that was all about how to learn to play the piano, and dedicated one hour to working on it each Sunday afternoon. I did well for about the first three weeks of the year, but I’ve sat down only twice since then. Time to get back on the wagon because I really want to do this one.
Oh, but I do have to mention that one week in church we needed someone to play the piano in class. I volunteered and played a song from our hymnal that I’d learned back in high school and although it wasn’t perfect, it wasn’t bad. So that’s better than nothing!
Put my phone away by 8pm every night
I have to be honest, I completely forgot about this one. Time to be accountable again and put that phone away at night.
Run a 5K every week
I’ve actually done okay at this one! It took me a few months to build up the endurance and speed to run a complete 5K in my short running window each morning (I only have about thirty minutes before I have to be home to get the boys up and ready for school). I’ve been working on my speed, and in the last three weeks I’ve run a 5K every single week, and many of my other running days are close to that distance. I’m freaking proud of myself!
Keep a gratitude journal
This one completely slipped my mind too. But this is why I’m doing this check in, because it helps me be accountable again!
So now it’s your turn…did you set new year resolutions or goals? And how are you doing on them? Tell me in the comments!
