reviewing my 2016 new years goals


i'll be honest, ever since i wrote out my new years goals they kind of got pushed away and i totally forgot about them! so since it's june now and we're half way through the year, i thought it would be a good idea to dig them up and do a quick review to see where i've been doing well and where i still can improve. to see my original 2016 goals post click here

01. cut out alcohol & smoking
ok, this one i'm actually really proud of!! i decided that cutting out alcohol completely was just not realistic for me right now. but i definitely have cut back a lot and i'm proud to say that i feel like i finally have a healthy relationship with drinking. as for the smoking, i haven't smoked at all this year! :)

02. eat a well balanced diet 
haha... so this is one goal that i definitely need to focus more on. last week i kept an honest food journal and looking back on it, it's totally embarrassing! i think i want to focus more on eat three proper meals a day and not just snacking all day everyday... which is something i do a lot ;).

03. develop an exercise routine
ok so this one also... i'm struggling with! i'm happy to say that i've consistently been doing pilates twice a week for most of the year, so i guess that kind of counts as an exercise routine right? but i think  what i had in mind when i made this goal was going to the gym, or getting into a running routine. two things i have not come close to doing! even if i could get to the gym once a week i would be happy.

04. devote time to grow spiritually - whether it be attending church, watching online sermons, etc.
yes! this one i can check off for sure, or at least know that i'm on the right track. i watch weekly sermons online and have been out to church more times than i have in the last few years (although my track record recently hasn't been great haha).

05. limit recreational computer time to approximately five hours a day {i'm trying to be realistic here}
.... depends on the day. sometimes i can get this done no problem.... other days it just doesn't happen.

06. pay off my credit card bill
ugh, this one i am trying so hard to work on but it always feels like one step forwards, two steps back. 

07. spend time each day on myself {hello reading, face masks, walks, etc.}
a work in progress, definitely room for improvement.

08. improve my skin care routine
so i'm going to say this one is pretty on track. i've definitely made more of an effort to take off my makeup everyday which is a huge step for me, and i think my skin is a bit better? or at least more consistent.

09. drink 8 cups of water every day
... if i get more than 4 in it's a win right now.

10. develop a morning routine
i started really strong with this goal, but i feel like recently i've been struggling. especially now that it's summer i have way less motivation to make my mornings productive. 

so there it is, a quick review of some of my goals for 2016. i think it was a really good time to check in and remind myself what i wanted to accomplish this year. it's so easy to forget about what you wanted to do way back in january (it feels like forever ago right?!). i feel like i have a lot of room for improvement, but i'm happy that i've made some sort of progress, and there is still so much time to keep working at it.

did you guys make new years goals this year? have you been sticking to them?
