March Goals: How Did You Do this Week?


(1) Creating community here at this blog: the two things I want to focus on this month are traffic and comments.

a) Toward that end, for traffic, I want to write one article, create one Squidoo lens and post one new video on YouTube this month.
b) For comments, I want to meet more bloggers and hang out with them a bit. Do you have a blog I could visit?


I don't think I'm going to be able to do the traffic goal this month, but I have been having a blast visiting new blogs and getting to know some of the other bloggers in the personal style arena.

(2) Healthy changes: This is sort of a continuation of last month's goal about slowing down, drinking more tea, getting more sleep and eating more protein.

This one's mixed. I have gotten more sleep this week! And I'm drinking more water, and trying to go easy on the salt. But the rest of it, not so much.

(3) Avoiding last year's Easter disaster: My choice for an Easter ensemble last year was a BIG mistake! This month, I need to determine if it was just the color or other factors that made it so.

Still not completely decided about the whole ensemble, but I'm getting there. I am considering a different cardigan, so it won't be all one color. Haven't tried it yet but I just got the cardigan in, so I'll try it this week and see how it goes.

How did your week go?

Warm Autumn:“This woman never pretends. She won’t say something just to flatter you unless she believes it to be true. She cries harder than anyone at a funeral. She is fiercely loyal to her family but will not spare them hard work or spoil them with extravagance. She may seem to absorb a lot of demands but when she draws the line at enough, everyone knows it.” ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints

Deep Autumn:"Sensible and straightforward as all Autumns, but direct in speech, and quick to absorb change with good evidence, they speak honestly and bluntly. What I love most, I believe, is that they are not one bit threatened or defensive about new ideas. The person may demonstrate more of Winter’s reserve, or more of Autumn’s passive and natural way, but there is always an element of fire." ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints

  1. Here's to meeting your goals for the month! There's nothing like a sense of accomplishment. And I'm sure whatever you choose to wear for Easter will be just fine! Enjoy your weekend...

    1. Hi Chandra! You are SO right, that sense of accomplishment, even for small things is wonderful.

      Thanks so much for your encouragement. It's good to see you here! You have a great weekend, too.

  2. Hi Jeanine!
    Sounds like you made some good health choices with more rest and water and less salt. I am finding the water drinking to be a challenge.

    I think you used to visit my DYT blog but I am no longer using it and am back to my old sewing blog. http://sewmanythingstodo.blogspot.ca/. Drop by and see me sometime!

    1. Me, too, since I'm still not sure what it will end up looking like (LOL)! Thanks!! I need to get even better at it, but I'm thinking it will be less painful to do it gradually. :)

  5. That's great that you've been able to reduce your salt intake and increase your water consumption! It's so important to take that time to rest as well. Looking forward to seeing what you put together for Easter. Can't believe it's only a couple weeks away now!
