I think it's always a good idea to take stock of the goals you set out for yourself. It's good to check in with yourself frequently and take an honest look at your progress with regards to your intentions.
I have essentially five goals for 2012. If you're interested, click here for a more in depth look, and see below for my one month check in.
1. Yoga - The goal was three times a week. I definitely do that, but sometimes it's only once or twice. If I don't go to yoga for whatever reason, I do make sure I get in a work out, so I'm pretty happy with this progress. More often than not, it's twice a week, so I think this is decent progress. I am wonderfully impressed with my own practice - I am by no means awesome at yoga, but I can feel my body adapting and wouldn't you know it? I can flow from downward dog, to plank, to cobra now. FLOW. Not all creaky and cracky and in stages. This is a big deal for me.
1b. Since I set this goal, I have also started a new work out regime in addition to the yoga - something that is much more high impact. I do a variation of THIS about twice a week. It's hardcore.
2. Nature - The goal was to spend more time outside. In the past month or so since I set this goal, I have taken advantage of both the beautiful sunny days that look like spring AND the snow. I walk a lot. I work inside and feel like I could definitely benefit from a scheduled mid-day dog walk, so that's something to add to the roster.
3. Less Screen Time - FAIL. Total fail. Work in progress. I suck at "unplugging".
4. Re-evaluation of personal habits - I'm really happy with this one. I have made a few small changes to my lifestyle that have not only proven to me that I have will power, but the capability to change.
5. Become a social butterfly again - I have made a point to schedule things during the week nights, and have said yes to things I would normally say no to. I'm starting to initiate social gatherings again and I'm spending less time on my couch at night (happy place alert!). A lot of my friends would laugh if they saw this goal - they are under the impression that we're always busy and on the go - and, that's true. I think it's because I spend so much of my time alone (as I work in a remote office at my home), that I often feel disconnected.
I'd like to add a goal too. It all stems from THIS post, asking the question - When was the last time you tried something new? I resolve to try new things - it didn't matter what it is, or what level of bravery it requires, but that I try something new. Sometimes with hilarious results.
Like the time I tried Bellyfit.
Self-evaluation? So far so good. Keep on keepin on.
