February 1st – Resolution Check-In

We are one month into the new year.  Many people around me have said they felt as if January would never end.  I am one of those people.  I’ve never been quite so happy to see February come as I am this year.

Some pretty bad things have gone on in January (which “a series of pretty bad things” seems to be the theme of my life anymore), so I’m surprised on how I’ve done with My 2018 Resolutions so far.

Lose 70 Pounds

To reach my goal of dropping 70 pounds this year, I have to lose roughly 6 pounds a month.

Well, for January I lost somewhere between 4 and 5 pounds.  Not a complete fail because I did lose, but I didn’t make goal.

For February I have challenged myself to a Sit-Up Challenge and a Push-Up Challenge.  By the end of the month I should be able to do 100 sit ups and 50 push ups.

Sell My Crafts

I made two key chains/purse charms in January.

I did not list them online for sale yet.


Focus on my Blog

I only made 9 blog entries in January.  And most of those were book reviews.  Only blogging 9 out of 30 days….another fail.

Keep a Journal

I’ve written in my journal even less than I’ve posted in my blog.  Last night I did get a LOT of therapeudic scribbling out of the way.  Much profanity was scrawled across

the pages.

A friend of mine gave me some cash recently to get something for myself, and I ordered a new journal and fountain pen.

The journal got here today:

Moon Goddess Journal

The Moon Goddess Journal by Peter Pauper Press

I don’t expect to get the fountain pen for a while though.

Go Outside

I did go outside twice today.  I played fetch with the dog for a while, and then I went for a 2 mile walk. But overall for January, this was another fail.

So, how are you all doing on your own 2018 Resolutions?


  1. Mine was a half and half. So not to bad. I think I dropped 2 pounds but that is better than nothing!

    I am proud of you, you are under so much stress and you still lost weight!

  2. You may not have reached your goals but you didn’t fail. You’re on your way. Just keep on keeping on, you’ll get there. 😊
