Four Simple Goals – Update

Remember this?


Yah, I barely do either.

A little over a month ago, I decided to take part in Elsie’s FourĀ Simple Goals challenge. Part of the challenge was to blog about your progress, and I’m here to tell you that my progress has been all over the place.

Let’s start at the beginning, shall we?

1. Eat vegetables every day.

I have been rocking this one. But to be honest, it’s not that hard. I know, I know, way to skew the results in my favor by picking something easy, right? Maybe a year ago it would have been tough, but nowadays, eating vegetables daily is par for the course. That being said, there was one day when I didn’t have any vegetables at all. Just one.

2. Practice night time yoga.

Nope. Not even once. Well, maybe once. I can’t even remember if that time was after I made this goal or not. But anyway, the spirit of this simple goal was to get more yoga into my life, and I have been doing that with evening and weekend classes that have been totally rocking my world. So while this goal itself has been kind of a bust, I’m totally honoring the spirit of it. So half a checkmark?

3. Cook a Skinny Bitch recipe.

Nope and nope again. Haven’t done too much in the kitchen lately. (When do I ever?) I still have a month, though! Maybe I will make something for our friend’s potluck Christmas party to fulfill this one.

4. Establish a dedicated writing time.

Eh. Kind of. NaNoWriMo was a big help with establishing a near-daily writing habit, but it’s not been at the same time each day. I would like to start my mornings with writing, but so far, I’m still struggling with sleep problems, and getting up in time to get ready for work at all is a challenge. Excuses, excuses, I know. Perhaps I will try setting a chunk of time aside each evening after dinner.

Are there any goals that you are working on to keep you sane through the busy remainder of the year? How are they coming? Share your trials and triumphs in the comments!
