Back in January, I put together a swap called Chase Your Dreams 2015. The basic premise of the swap is that you would list your top 3 goals for 2015 and be paired with another blogger who would send you a package of items designed to help you achieve your goals. I was paired with the lovely Dean from Mrs. AOK and she's been an amazing friend ever since. Anyway, I thought that now would be a good time to check in on those goals, since we're halfway through 2015.
So, let's check in on my progress, shall we?
1) Write my novel.
My goal was to have a rough draft of my novel completed by the end of the year. I have about 1/4 of the draft done. Not exactly stellar progress. But I find my "spare" time to be quite limited and I just don't have the time (nor the peace and quiet) to write. I'm not ready to declare defeat on the goal just yet, though. I work better under pressure and I bet once the end of the year grows nearer, I'll be cranking out extra pages in no time. So, stay tuned.
2) Focus on wellness.
I am kicking ass at this goal. If I do say so myself. Working out, eating (mostly) clean, trying to stay as hydrated as possible. Do I have cheat meals? ABSOLUTELY. I'm human just like everyone else. But I try not to go overboard and binge like I used to. I'm running my first 5K tomorrow and I'm so excited! This is something I would never have seen myself doing in the past, so it's cool to see that I am moving out of my comfort zone a bit.
3) Read 100 books.
I have completed 29 books so far this year. If I stay at this rate, I will only complete 58 books for the year. But ya know what? I'm OK with that. Like I mentioned, my free time is limited. And whatever time I do have is usually spent going to the gym.
Overall, I'm not unhappy with my progress. I'd obviously like to see a lot more progress for goal #1 by the end of the year. But I'll work on that as much as I can.
What's the status on your goals for 2015? Making progress? Need a push?
