Keeping Up With...My Fab 40! - Feb review

February continued the trend of being up and down, very similar to January.  We had multiple colds come through the house which derailed some of my plans.  We also had a week long birthday celebration which took a lot of time and energy and was so worth it.  I stayed as focused on my goals as I could without driving myself and everyone around me crazy. 

Here's how I'm doing after 2 months.  I have broken them down into two categories (on-going & one time) so it's easier for me to update.  I'll be adding a third category (finished) in upcoming months.  The goals are in black and my current month comments are in red.

1.  Lose 40 pounds - one for each year - Lost 6 of the 40 lbs.  I stalled a little this month with the birthdays, but I'm happy that I still lost some.
2.  Read 12 books - I was so close last year! - Read 2 of the 12.  I stalled here as well.  I wanted to go back & read a classic so I decided to reread "Little Women."  It's really long!  I'm about 30% thru it.
3.  Go on 12 dates with Adrian - Went on 3 of the 12 - We got 2 dates in Feb!  Look for a recap of our dates later this week
4.  Get rid of 12 bags of stuff - Donated 1 bag and threw out at least one this month when we organized our game closet.  3 of the 12 are gone.
5.  Take 1 picture every day for the year - Up to date on this 61 of 366
6.  Go on 2 special dates with AJ - Went on 0 out of 2, but he wants to see Kung Fu Panda 3 so we're doing that soon.
7.  Go on 2 special dates with Daniel -
Went on 0 out of 2, but we just got an ad for a Snoopy play so I'm buying us tickets this weekend.  It's in April
8.  Go on 2 special dates with Zak - Went on 0 out of 2, I'll be saving these for the 2nd half of the year when he's in preschool everyday.
 9.  Do a 365 day exercise streak - 51 days of 365, every day from Jan 11-March 1!!  This was really tough a few days, especially when I had the stomach bug (I did Wii Free Step in the living room) and on the last day of party week.
10.  Finish the 30 Day Shred - Did 0 days of 30 - I need to get started on this one!
11.  Attend one class each week that isn't mine - Did this 6 weeks out of 52.  I missed the first two weeks of Feb between the stomach bug, snow days and the birthdays but got right back to it. 
12.  Teach an average of 5 classes each week -
Did this 7 weeks out of 52.  I can't believe I was able to get to 5 classes the week of the stomach bug, wow!
13.  Menu plan and prep our dinners each week - Did this 7 weeks out of 52.  I've had to juggle meals around but very little food is going to waste over here. 
14.  Go to church every Sunday - Did this 9 weeks out of 52.
15.  Do one blog post each week - I did 7 posts in Feb.  I plan to start doing a weekly workout recap on Wednesdays so I can remember what I'm doing each week. 
16.  See 2 movies that aren't animated - Saw 0 out of 2
17.  Pay off our Best Buy card and not incur any new debt - No new debt so far, and on plan to pay off best buy card in 5 months
18.  Have a family board game night once per month - Did this 2 out of 12 months
19.  Have a family movie night once per month
- Did this 2 out of 12 months (Inside Out, Charlie Brown Valentine's special)
20.  Have a family video game night once per month - Did this 2 out of 12 months
21.  Go to 4 Zumba jams this year - Went to my 1 out of 4 and I loved every minute of it!  Look for a recap tomorrow.  And I'm signed up for jam #2 in April.
