Goals update

If you haven't taken my blog survey yet, PLEASE do so {here}. It only takes a minute...Don't make me beg!

Here are those goals I mentioned I would be working on for 2013. So how am I doing after the first month:
  1. Eat healthier Better than I was before but still haven't cut out soft drinks and sweets all together
  2. Exercise once more Been to the gym pretty regularly...mostly the elliptical!
  3. Read 12 books (1 per month-gotta start small) Month 1- Water for Elephants (and already started on Les Miserable and Divergent)
  4. Try more new recipes- A few...I made shrimp po'boys from my new cookbook and herb crusted pork chops from Pinterest. Any recipe ideas/suggestions from you readers? Help!
  5. Make and order our wedding album Haven't started on this yet
  6. Be a better friend I have caught up with most of my girls! (few more to go) I have been making some new friends too! Veronica and Sarah :)
  7. Travel more Not yet- but going to see Denise in Fairfax next month!
  8. Be more active at church Been going to church but haven't stepped out of my comfort zone yet. Were going to try some more new churches!
  9. Get more organized and get rid of clutter YAY! Finally bought binders and organized our papers. Here was my inspiration.
  10. Do more DIY projects- Not yet, see below
  11. Blog more efficiently- I think I am doing this...been writing posts ahead of time and scheduling when they will publish!! And I have lots of new ideas :)
  12. Do more for others Not yet. Will get inspired by this blog!
  13. Budget wisely We have been more conscious as far as regular purchases like groceries but we did just make a big one...our new sofa!
