It’s halfway through 2019! How have my goals been going? Well…it’s a mixed bag.
#1: Have I Lost Any Weight?
Not exactly. I’ve still been going in every eight weeks like clockwork to get my blood tested to see how my body is responding to the thyroid replacement therapy, and we still haven’t quite gotten to a good level. And that makes it more difficult. But on the upside, I’ve been getting better at cutting out gluten and sugar, which seems to be the best thing for me to lose weight. And I’ve been more consistent with working out- it helps that I’m doing a very difficult dance number in public, which has been pretty good motivation to stay moving and work on my flexibility.
#2: Am I Taking Care of Myself?
Yes! I’m getting better at saying no to projects that are too much for me and taking time off work if I’m truly sick. And I’m getting better at getting up and doing things on self care days instead of staying in bed and watching Dance Moms or Great British Baking Show all day. I still have a ways to go, but I’m improving.
#3: Have I Made My Wardrobe Function?
Yes and no? I did a purge at the beginning of the year, and another purge last month- so far I’ve gotten rid of four bags of old clothes and shoes that I don’t wear. I also sorted through as many patterns as possible and made a massive Pinterest board of outfits that I like. I’m ready to get into my new wardrobe.
#4: Have I Been Active Blogging and YouTubing?
#5: Have I Saved Money?
I’m not at $1,000, but I’m making progress!
#6: Have I Written a Book?
I’m all set for Camp NaNoWriMo next month!
#7: Have I Improved My Home?
Shane and I are both hard at work on this! We’ve done some downsizing, but there’s still more to do, and definitely more organizing.
So that’s my six month update! Let’s hope I’ve got a better report by the end of the year!
