2014 Goals, February Update

My Goals for 2014

Where did the month of February go to? It seemed to go by so fast this year. We had more snow last month then we have had in years at our house so the kids were really happy. I liked seeing the snow too. I’m now trying to focus on things I want to get done for the spring, like planning our garden.

Last month I wrote a guest post at Money Saving Mom, so I’m keeping up with my goal of guest posting so far this year. I have also been keeping up with doing a little on my photography classes each month.

I made some progress on my weight loss goals this past month. I lost 2 pounds, which I’m really excited about. Only 18 more to go. I think participating in the 12 month to a healthier you challenge has really help. I’m keeping up with my exercising too.

Even though the month of February went by really fast I did make some good progress. Here’s my list of goals for this year.
