Shannon’s 2013 Goals- 2nd Quarter Update

With June quickly coming to a close, I figured it was a good time to do a quick check-in with my 2013 goals.  Click here to see my original goals. Click here to see how I did in the 1st Quarter.

Personal Goals

Exercise More: This was a complete fail in the 2nd quarter. In the beginning of the year I did really well and then it just fell to the wayside. My elliptical has become just a dust collector. I started using it again last week so hopefully I’ll do better the rest of the year.

Eat Well: Still continuing to be a fail. Whomp whomp

Read More: Success! I started working in the city a few days a week so I have some extra time on the train to read. Since April I’ve read: The Great Gatsby (I read it in high school but couldn’t remember any of it. Now I know why- I thought it was so boring), The Lady of the Rivers (I love Philippa Gregory! I liked this book but it wasn’t my favorite from her), The Fault in Our Stars (loved it but do not read it in public – you will weep), and I’m currently 85% done with A Dance of Dragons (I love it but it's taking me forever). I've a long list of books that I want to read next so I'll keep you posted on how they are.

The Fault in Our Stars

Blog Goals

Post Once a Week: So far, so good. I think I’ve only missed one week which isn’t bad- especially since many weeks I have two posts.

Remember to Take Finished Product Pictures: Most of my posts the past few months were projects I did last year so I wasn’t able to really improve in this area. Hopefully I’ll get better going forward.

Work on Décor: I haven’t done too much in the category except get my new rug.

Get Organized: Fail!

All in all, this wasn’t my best quarter but hopefully I’ll be able to improve the rest of the year. Either way, I’ll be sure to keep you updated! How are you doing with your New Year’s Resolutions? Any one still going strong?
