Monthly Review of Goals from February

Goals February was a quick month and I want to share how I’m doing with my goals to this point. All of my goals can be found here.
Yearly goals:
  1. Try at least 12 new recipes (one per month). – We have done a lot of traveling this month so I didn’t do a lot of cooking this month. I barely got a new recipe in before the end of the month! 
    1. January – Quinoa Meatballs
    2. February - Cheddar Chicken Quinoa Bake
  2. Reach my target weight by the end of the year. – No loss of weight this month. In fact I gained 5 while on the cruise.
  3. Knit a Fair Isle vest. (not started yet)
  4. Learn to chain ply some handspun yarn. (not started yet)
  5. Dye yarn and fiber. (not started yet)
  6. Spin my camel, yak, and cashmere fiber.
    1. January - spun camel/merino/silk blend fiber
Daily/Weekly/Monthly goals:
  1. Daily - Read the bible and keep a log so I can tell how I am doing. – I’ve read it every day in January and February.
  2. Daily - Do strength exercises for 30 minutes each day. – I have done this every day.
  3. Weekly - Walk at least 10,000 steps for 4 days every week. – I’ve done this and sometimes managed to do it more than 4 days each week.
  4. Weekly - Keep a journal and write down 5 things that I’m thankful for. – Every Sunday I take time to jot down the 5 things.
  5. Monthly - Read one non-fiction book every month.
    1. January - Life in Stitches by Rachel Herron.
    2. February – The Spinners Book of Yarn Design by Sarah Anderson
This month was kind of slow. I think I did alright but I’m hoping to do better with my cooking and my weight in March.
