Goals Roundup- Week 1

It's not even been two full weeks and I have fallen off the New Year Goal wagon already (I haven't worked out in 4 days!)! I realize that I need some accountability to hold me to these goals. so... here we go...

1. 365 project: So far, I'm on track with this one!

365-week01

1. Day 1, 2. Day 2, 3. Day 3, 4. Day 4, 5. Day 5, 6. Day 6

2. Work out at least an hour a day: well.... I think an hour might be an overly ambitious goal, especially with the wii fit. It seems that for me to accumulate an hour of workout time on the wii, I need to devote at least an hour and a half to it.

12/31- 30min

1/1- 1 hour

1/2- 1 hour

1/3- 30 min

1/4- 1 hour

1/5 & 1/6- NONE :(

I took the weekend off, and now it's Wednesday and I haven't worked out since Friday. Looks like I have a date with my wii tonite.

3. Cut out sugar and eat fewer carbs eat more veggies: That's a pretty vague goal. I'm going to amend this to eat more veggies (at least two servings a day) instead of less carbs. I drank my coffee this week (with the exception of some truly awful diner coffee) sans sugar. But I did eat some cookies and had some chocolate. For the most part, I did well on the living without sugar. I can do better, though.

4. Finish Projects: First project nearly complete: felted clogs. Only one more step left before this one is knocked off my list! My yellow scarf is nearly complete. I estimate that this will be completed next weekend.

5. Home Projects:  Happy to report that the last two curtain rods have been purchased. One curtain rod has been installed in the loft and and has temporary curtains--this of course means that the bedroom now has none so we'll call this goal half complete.

Hopefully posting this will keep me accountable, honest and on track. I would love any encouraging words, or any tips you have to help me stay on track with these goals. Oh, and feel free to call me out when I don't post (most likely due to me slacking with one/all my goals). Sometimes, I need tough love!

Let's do this!

one week down, 51 left!

One week of my 365 down! Yay!

I've been published!!!

I totally forgot about the request I had received for one of my photos to be used in a book until a check came last week. (I was contacted about this well over a year ago!) I was happy I got a check, but at the same time I was a little disappointed that I didn't receive the book that my photo was used in.

Then, it arrived:



Winnebago County: Connected

Here's a little excerpt from the front sleeve:
Winnebago County:Connected explores the charms and advantages of living and doing business in northern Illinois. Industrious, forthright, and self-reliant, Winnebago County exemplifies the American small-town way of life while offering the convenience of city living....As Winnebago County's towns and cities experience a social and economic renaissance, a new generation is discovering opportunities in logistics, food production, health care, and high tech manufacturing. Winnebago County: Connected describes hoe a grand old county is reinventing itself as the changing face of America's Industrial heartland.

How cool is that? Here's the original photo




And look! They even credited me!


This is the first time that one of my photos has been published in a book! (I've had my photographs used in a newspaper article that I wasn't credited for...) I'm so excited! Does this make me a real Photographer now? ;)
