Monthly Goals

March was a waste. Ok...I am being dramatic as usual but in terms of my goals, it really was. I was out of work sick for almost 2 weeks and bedridden with a fever and a hoarse, scratchy little voice...and a killer toothache.  As an aside, I am SO glad to be walking away from Winter. When I tell you I've picked up every germ available this year, I mean it. My immune system is clearly on strike. It killed a lot of planned work. 

I'm not going to bother going goal by goal this month because so little has been accomplished. I will tell you what I managed to do instead because I'm focusing on the positive (head bowed in shame). 

From the "Sis, Get Your Life Together" list: I did go back to the gym! Woo-hoo!! I also created my YouTube channel. Two outta four ain't bad? Yes it is. It totally is. I'm not giving you the schpeel about doing better in April. Just gonna do it. 

As for the March Goal List, I did try something new. I distressed a table and some clipboards for an art installation in my foyer. Now, I'm obsessed. I also started AND joined a book club. As a note, this month's books are Yes Please by Amy Poehler and The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins. I also ate two (and sometimes more) raw meals a week. As for everything else, no cigar. 

So, a new month brings a new shot. I'm keeping the goals I didn't meet last month and adding on the Minimalism Challenge I posted about yesterday and one other thing.
