Small Goals for Big Goals – April

Posted on

I feel like I have failed the month of March and have really not been looking forward to writing this post, but for the sake of change and progress I am going to keep pushing on. 
Looking back at March
Life
– Get down to 151lbs: No and I don’t plan on setting a goal like this for April. I think it stresses me out too much. 
– Write a minimum of 4 non-photo blog posts: I think I only got 1 post up. 
– Read the books of Proverbs and John – No
– Read to chapter 45 in the Book of Psalms – No
– Listen to my gut instincts – Yup. Not sure why I felt skiing on Saturday was bad, but my gut said so and I listened. 
Professional
– Make a list of companies to apply to – Yes
– Buy a domain name – No. I am going to wait a bit for this. 
– Take pictures for a landscapes portfolio – Yes. I live in such a beautiful place that this happens all the time. 
Fitness
– Get my run’s up to an hour – Still stuck at 40 minutes. 
– Go on a 10 mile bike ride – No, but we did start mountain biking. 
– Go on 4 hikes and make sure one of them is with Jason – Changing this one to one hike a month, which I still failed at. 
30 By 30
– Sell my car – Forgot to take pictures when I was at my mom’s
– Read Pride and Prejudice – This book is proving to be a major challenge so I switched to Alice’s Adventures
– Continue to challenge myself to be better skier and finish the season out strong – I skied a double black with my dad and brother. This was a major high for me. 
– Apply to volunteer for the Mt. Evans Hill Climb – still trying to get Jason to get on board with this. 
So I succeeded in one way or another on 7 out of 15. Not quite as bad as I thought. 
Jumping forward to April.
