2019: First Quarter Goals Recap

setting goals for 2019

In January I posted about my goals for the first quarter of 2019. The first three months have flown by and I am about to post my second quarter goals next week. Today I thought I would share how I did with my goals for the first quarter.

  1. Get a professional haircut. Guys! I hate getting my haircut so this still hasn’t happened. I still have this weekend though so I’ll try to force myself to get it cut. Do it for the blog!! I know I’ll feel better after I do.
  2. Travel at least twice. This was an easy one! We took a quick trip to visit Brett’s grandpa in Florida in January and then took a few days in February to visit my grandparent’s in Arizona.
  3. Commit to the blog. I give myself a 70% with this goal. I was pretty consistent with posting but never was able to reach my view goal that I always have in my head. If you read my blogging tips post you would know that I try not to take blogging too seriously so I won’t be hard myself and will consider this goal accomplished.
  4. Read three books and write reviews. YES! I read Meet Cute, All The Bright Places, and Top Ten and was able to write reviews for all three. I also read Holding Up The Universe by Jennifer Niven but haven’t posted the review for it yet. Stay tuned!
  5. Meal plan and prep for the week ahead. I did okay with meal planning and prep. I went to the grocery store and made sure I had work lunches packed 90% of the time. I learned a couple of new recipes that I am loving and stopped relying on my crock pot so much. I still have some work to do with this but I plan on continuing what I have been doing in Q2.
  6. Make healthy living a top priority. Why is this so hard? UGH. I am getting better though. I’ve been losing a couple of pounds a week and have stopped snacking so much in between meals. I think about my goals often and try to be gentle with myself. Healthy living has been my priority and will continue to be throughout the rest of the year.

Stay tuned for my second quarter goals next week! Do you have any goals for the next few months?

    Ah, i used to hate haircuts, until i found my current hairdresser. He’s just so awesome. Now i go every 2 months 😀 I think once you find your hair-soul-mate, you won’t feel so off about it.

      That’s amazing! I hope I find my perfect hair person soon! I didn’t end up getting a haircut this weekend because I found out the place I usually go to closed… I think I found someone new to try so I’m hoping to get in next weekend! It’s crazy how important it is to have a great hairdresser. It makes a huge difference though!

    Hey, Hapoy saturday!
    Don’t worries you’ve got time to get through your goals. I’m still fighting through some of mines, but even if I am making a dent in some, I feel accomplish. Just keep going and believe you can achieve them. Healthy lifestyle is a long journey, start small and work your way up. Celebrate the small victories as well as the huge ones

    I totally feel the same way about haircuts! I’m getting one this Friday, but it took me forever to actually make the appointment, lol. I’m nervous because there’s always the fear that I’m choosing a cut that’s a big mistake haha. But, I’m not happy with my hair how it is, so I need to do it! Just wanted to let you know that I can relate to that struggle, lol.

    Great job on your meal planning and prepping! I have always written out even just a basic meal plan for the week because otherwise I’m lost when it comes to grocery shopping haha, but meal prepping is hard! We have done it a lot for breakfasts like with smoothies and baked oatmeal. But I’ve never really done it for lunches or dinners. I feel like it would help a LOT with lunches. What sort of lunches have you prepped?
