12 in '12 Check in Time!

Happy Thursday & Happy 1st of March, friends! Is it just me or is THIS..WEEK..DRAGGING?! Whew, I'll be glad to see this weekend when it arrives tomorrow! :)

If you're new and didn't read about my 12 in '12 you can read the original post here. I'm keeping myself accountable and checking-in at the beginning of each month- so here goes!!

In February, I blogged 11 times. Not quite up to par to get me to 200 posts (maybe I should have said 150) but I'll keep truckin' along! The main point is to continually blog, so I'm not in too bad of shape here ;)

My weight pretty much plateaued in February. Bummer.... However, I did decide to go "water only" until Easter, and only a week in, it's definitely working. Giving up pop and caffeine is TOUGH, let me tell you....but I'm hoping to see some much smaller numbers on the scale very soon! 

J and I are doing our first 5k in over a year on March 10th! Woot! One small step in being able to one day run a 10k and then a 1/2 marathon!

I read two books in February and they were both INCREDIBLE. I highly recommend "Look Again" and "Room" if you haven't read them already. Much "heavier" reads than the books I read last month, so I think they took me a little longer to get through. But once I got into them-- could NOT put them down! Go get a copy- ASAP!

                

I was able to put about 10% of my paycheck into my savings account so that felt REALLY good this month. That money will NOT be touched :)

No major organization projects around the house- I think March will be the entryway closet project. It needs help in the worst way. I keep pinning stuff like this, this and this!


That's all for today--- How are your 2012 goals coming along?! :)

Ps- I may be playing w/ my blog layout in the upcoming couple of days. It's highly experimental so if things get a bit hectic around here-- can't say I didn't warn ya! ;)

    I like Lisa Scottoline, she's great. I couldn't get into Room. It was too weird for me.
    I'm experimenting with my blog, too! Hooray for makeovers!

  5. My book club read the Room...definitely heavy, but it kept me interested! And I've always heard great things about the Shamrock Shuffle! Good luck. :)
