Resolution Roundup!

Posted by writergrll. Comment (0).

March really flew by!  I think it always does, though.  My birthday is the 1st of April (no joke) and I think that since I spend so much time anticipating it that I forget to enjoy March.  But, from now on March will have a special place in my heart.  Especially March 7 since that is now my wedding anniversary.

On Thursday I went with a basic black pant look.  I think that because I abstain from wearing black pants that when I do I always really like the look!  There is something so simple about a great fitting pair of black trousers with heels and a button-up dress shirt.  It doesn’t matter what color of shirt it is, I think that it is the epitome of business casual.  This time around, I went with a bright magenta button-up.

Although it was warm they were calling for rain so I added a black cardigan to the mix as well.  I think this is a very simple but polished look.  And, since it is the end of the month I thought that I would go ahead and do my Resolutions Update, as well.  You can find the original list of goals here.

In the Misc. category I did manage to travel.  Over Spring Break weekend my BF and I went to Las Vegas.  In addition to sightseeing we also became husband and wife!  I have just recently finished a book which I wrote about on my Book Report page.  I did not sew anything and I can’t say that I’ve really made any improvements to the blog.  I think that I may have slipped a little because my posting has become erratic.  I also didn’t do so great with my You Tube channel, either.  I posted 2 videos, but I was really hoping for 3 or 4.

I have also had a streak of bad luck in the Health and Well Being category.  I’ve been brushing my teeth before bed and that has now become the rule rather than the exception.  But, I haven’t done well in the other area’s.  I need to get serious and be more focused.  I am going to start by making a goal to hit 10,000 steps EVERY day.  I hit it sometimes, but not as much as I could.  Looking back, it’s about 3 or 4 days of the week.  But, I want to make more of a commitment and effort towards this goal.  And, that goes for the weight loss and working out.  I’ve let it slip to the back burner and the pounds have started to creep back on.  I am not o.k. with that and need to start taking steps to put an end to it!

I am maintaining steady progress in the Finances section, though.  Each month I make my payments on my credit cards and student loans.  I also finally set up a 401K through my second job.  And, I have a portion of my paycheck from teaching going directly into my savings account.  This is working out really well!  I am on-track to have my last credit card paid off after May of this year.  That will really help since I am not scheduled any classes over the Summer.  Also, I can add a little more to the current amount that I am paying on student loans and eradicate that debt quicker.

All-in-all I would say that I am doing a fair job at my goals.  I think that I really need to buckle down and start making some of them more if a priority!
