You lied to me, 2017!
I wanted to take this time to look back at the goals I set for myself probably around this time last year! 2017 was definitely eventful, mostly trash, but there was a lot of good, too. Either way, good riddance, 2017!
1: Goal: Life Balance
I think I’ve done pretty well about balancing things out, even if I didn’t accomplish it the way I planned on. I delegated what I could, said no when I needed to, and set some flexible days for myself. I DVR all my shows so I watch them on a night if I’m just really tired or need a break, I do tasks each day so they don’t pile up into a weekend of chores, and if I can’t go to yoga, I’ll work out at home. We’ve also made some extra time to take Al on a few extra walks.
2: Goal: Improve Etsy/ Square Shops
After various improvements and changes with Etsy’s app, I decided to stay on Etsy. I have done a lot of work to keep my Instagram pretty active and topical, and I’ve tried to keep a theme, which, is very difficult. Right now my shop is low in stock, but it’s getting down to the core items I want; stuffed animals and quilts. I actually have a couple of quilts ready to go that I just need to take pictures of and get them listed.
3: Goal: Fitness
While I actually gained weight all year this year, I am getting much closer to a real routine. I have gotten better about not just eating garbage food, but it’s really challenging. I know working out is only half of it, and I really have to get my eating under control. I know a lifestyle change isn’t going to happen in a year, but I’m working on making changes that are going to set things right again.
4: Goal: Finish Sewing
I can say that I did pretty pretty pretty good on this one! It did take me some time to just write a list and focusing on making what I’ve started and not start new, but I finished several quilts this year, which was amazing.
How did you do this year on your goals? I’ll have a new list of 2018 goals coming soon, so stick around! Also, let me know about your goals! Until then, happy sewing!
