Second week of the New Year and I’ve already made some good progress towards some of my goals:
1. Finish hard-cover books.
1/6 are done. Finished Peter the Great because I didn’t have that much left to read. It was ok, nothing to write home about. Interesting because I love history. I’ve also read some more of The Puerto Ricans, and am starting to finally really like it! After 1/3 of the way through it. I finally entered the 20th century and it means a little more to me now. It’s interesting because I really have no interest in 20th century American history, so why do I like 20th century PR history? They’re both *my* history. My grandfather didn’t come over to NY until 1949, though I am really imagining how my family was living while reading about the 1928 hurricane and things like that.
2. No reading while I eat.
I’ve maintained it for a week. Dude, it’s hard. But I really think it’s good for me.
3. Lose 5% of my weight.
My “official” weigh-in is tomorrow, which means the day in which I stand my body on the bathroom scale. I’ve rocked the eating and exercising this week, so I’m hoping to see a good loss.
4. Wedding cross-stitch
Absolutely no progress.
5. Sewing machine
Well, I made this last weekend! I’m really proud, although the stitching isn’t particular straight. 🙂
Can’t wait to use this new beach bag on the beach in Florida next week!
6. Get house organized
All week I wanted to get started on this, but I decided getting to the gym was a higher priority. Hopefully I’ll get to this soon.
All in all, not bad. Here’s to the second full week of the year!
