february goals update

February 28, 2013

Here’s what happened with February’s monthly goals.

Leave work on time. Well, I did better. I left late half the days I worked instead of the majority. And over half of those times were either less than fifteen minutes (which is pretty good, but still makes a difference in my commute) or because I was in charge. I will probably always be late leaving when I’m in charge and that’s just that. I would say that I am pretty good about leaving on time on regular days, and it is definitely a high priority for me now. It’s actually a good thing for my patients too because I am very prompt with them, which they like. All in all I am happy about my progress with this.

Buy a natural daily facial sunscreen. I used a birthday gift card from Sephora to buy this sunscreen and it’s great. I’m getting close to having my all-natural skincare regimen totally figured out, and when I do I’ll definitely share. I just have a few more areas where I’m looking for the perfect product (easy to buy in-store, not too expensive, a 2 or less rating on Skin Deep, and effective) so if you use anything that fits that description please send me your recommendation!

Obtain all fabric for quilt. Got this just a couple days ago and I’m so excited about it. Now I can actually start working on it.

Set up the writing desk area. Done and so happy about it.

Use the slow cooker on a work day. Yup! I was afraid that since I have to leave it on for 12 hours the meal might not turn out well, but my cooker switches to warm automatically so I just need to find more recipes that can cook for a long time. This one was a success.

No phone in church. This turned out to be a terrible month for this goal. The first week my uncle died while we were in church so I was texting with my mom. The next week we missed because Meredith took an early nap. The third week we were out of town. The last week we did go to church and I didn’t use my phone. So…success? I’ll plan to continue this practice in the future.

March goals coming tomorrow!

    From Nora:

    I think I need to get a new slow cooker that switches over automatically. That would make work days so much easier! I am really struggling with meal planning this week after work…

    From kapachino:

    I wouldn’t even attempt to use it if it didn’t do that. I’m gone for almost 12 hours at a time!

    From Sara:

    Thanks for sharing the Skin Deep website! I had never heard of it. I went ahead and looked up the products that I’m using now. I was pleased that a couple of them were a 2, but my face moisturizer was a 7!! Eeks. The new one I bought is a 5. I think I’ll do better next time!

    On a lighter note, I’m glad to see you’re accomplishing your goals! I don’t blame you for being late with all that traffic in Houston. I was very lucky to find a newer route using 90 instead of i10/610 when I did an internship a few years ago. I don’t know which part you live/work in though.

    From kapachino:

    I do take Hwy 90 to go home – even though it’s out of my way the traffic moves much faster and actually saves me time! I live in Katy (to the west) and work in the medical center so it’s quite a jaunt.
