And just like that, 1/12 of 2021 is over. Flipped the calendar to FEBRUARY already this morning. January always feels like a kind of long month, though I suppose it is one of the longer ones, technically.
It was a nice month, for me. In a way it feels like forever ago that we were at Disney, but that was definitely in January as well.
Overall the January vibe (post-vacation) was very chill. The kids went back to school, finally. YES. I have made it consistently back to the gym. Swim practice is back on for Asher. I joined a virtual book club and read 3 books! I walked most days, and put my Christmas decorations away. The boys and I made a complete 2021 Book List (and I made a personal one, too).
I spent 20 minutes yesterday doing a little month end review and sketching out new goals for February. My attitude toward everything this year is “progress over perfection.” PEACE. 😉 I’m not stressing at all about hitting every single daily habit or even insisting on completing any streaks. I just want to meet “most” goals, do the things I enjoy “most” of the time, etc. (Ex. I’m trying to workout and/or walk everyday. But if I don’t, I don’t. It’s ok. Not heading out at 2 am to fit in a walk so I can check it off. 🙂 )
Read at least 21 minutes: 24/31 (everyday except our days on vacation + 1/31)
Workout 19/23 (23= days home/ not on vacation)
yoga/ stretch workout 2
workout with boys = 2 swims with Asher. Was hoping for workout with Ethan but didn’t happen. Hike on 1/30 though!
Read to boys= 7
New recipe= 1
Skincare 26/31 (a couple days I think I showered later in day so skipped pm routine)
Email inbox to zero= 4! (pretty much every Friday)
$ review/ finance check in= 6
Social media screen time <10 minutes/day= No. (But, I was pretty good about limiting to one check in morning, another in evening with little or no checks in between most days (except for posting blog post in FB group). Time totals still too long though and still a number of days that I totally overrode my limits and was on way more.
On to the next month! 🙂
I am grateful for some good quality time with the boys this weekend (between a night out with E Friday, hiking with both on Saturday and then Asher and I played in the snow for a LONG time yesterday while Ethan was sledding with a friend.)
