March Results

Another month in the books. Let’s start with the good – decluttering. I have been doing a really good job with this goal. This month I got rid of 76 items. Since I still have a bunch of things that could/should go this may be my easiest goal to achieve.

Another good thing was getting to bed on time. I really made an effort to get in bed by 10:30pm this month. I made the goal 26 out of 31 days this month(83%). And I’ve been keeping it up so far this month.

I did a better job of keeping track of my efforts with the boy ending up with 21 out of 31 days(70%). I can see progress and we will continue to work on getting him to take more responsibility for making sure his daily tasks are done.

Now for the bad – I was on the computer past 10 pm for 22/31 days(29%)! I just can’t seem to pull myself away from it. I always say that it doesn’t keep me from falling asleep but does it mess with the quality of my sleep?? I’m not sure about that anymore.

On to April’s goals – still going to declutter at least 25 items and work on training the boy. My third goal this month is to exercise for at least 5 minutes everyday. I’ve really gotten away from doing anything and need to get something going. I’ve been doing some exercises using my body weight and light dumbbells 4 days a week, yoga 2 days and taking a walk the other day. I’ve also been trying to do a minute or two of stretching before I go to sleep. It isn’t much but I need to start the habit of doing something and then I can build on it.

What are your goals for the month? Please share in the comments

  1. Good going on getting to bed quite reliably at your set time. And for the continuing decluttering.

    You’ve inspired me to actually keep a tally of days to bed by a certain time. I know I should set 10 pm as my in-bed-with-lights-off time, but I think I’m also going to make it 10.30 pm. As from today, will keep a tally.

    I also took a box of items to Goodwill, but I forgot to count them and I forgot to take note of what they were!!! I’d had the box ready to go for so long, that I’d forgotten what was inside. And I didn’t want to risk opening it to look and perhaps change my mind about some items (as I’ve been known to do).

    Thanks you for blogging – it helps me, too!

    • I don’t let Matthew look in my boxes because he always decides he wants something that he previously said he didn’t want. It would be easier if I didn’t keep the boxes for so long. I don’t want to schedule a pick up for just one box but then I let them pile up for too long.
