While I may have been absent from the blog this month.....resolution wise I ROCKED! Best yet? Maybe so.
Read a book every month:
SUCCESS! I read People Are Unappealing (even me) by Sara Barron.
It was a quick easy read AND I finished it half-way through the month. I can probably credit the lack of Internet in my hotel and not my wicked intense willpower for this completion of a resolution.
Learn a new art form/technique:
"C+" I did some lack luster research in preparation for learning it.....in August I will have a great deal of free time so it will be my "make it or break it" month for this one.
If I must eat pizza, only one a month:
ATTAINED IT!!!! I went to Ancora with a friend right before I left for LA and THAT WAS IT! I completely forgot about pizza. I also forgot about things like "sleep" but whatever, I reached this goal (which is the hardest for me) and I'm proud.
Eat more leafy greens:
"B-"....I feel like I could have done better. Not sure why.....
Cook/bake 2-3 new recipes a month:
VICTORY!!!! I came close to failing at this one but LAST NIGHT I had a major cooking fest.
I made Baked Brussel Sprouts (which is great for people who hate brussel sprouts but terrible for those who do...I love them, John hates them) and Lemony Asparagus with Pine Nuts and Parmesan.
Keep in better contact with my Mother's friends:
CHECK!!! I mailed her a postcard from Santa Barbara
Travel to at least 2-3 new (to me) cities in the US by the end of the year:
I went to Solvang, CA for a wonderful weekend of wine tasting!
And I went to Santa Barbara, CA for the day trip (and more wine tasting)!
I went to Pensacola, FL!!!
I knew this month would be the month where I completed this one.
I don't want to give myself to much credit as Pensacola is only 3 1/2 hours from New Orleans. Also, Santa Barbara is on the way back to LA from Solvang....soooooo.
Whatever! I finally got some traveling in this month! BOO-YAH!
Thank you July. You may be the best month yet for successes!
Have you been able to keep up with your resolutions?
