Summer 13 in 2013 Wrap Up

**Every season, I post a set of goals that I set out to accomplish. I track my progress here on my blog. I like the challenge of setting goals – it helps me to accomplish so much more. This post features a wrap up of my Summer 13 goals**

Summer is over, and school is back in session, so here’s a wrap up of how I did on my summer goals.

HEALTH

  • Do a sun salutation every morning – I was doing really good at this, and then I just sort of stopped.  My muscles are always so tight when I first wake up; I didn’t like not having a full range of motion.
  • Revamp my recipe notebook – Done!
  • Try three new Paleo slow cooker recipes – Done!  Never got around to posting pictures of everything, but I did make three new recipes: Bacon bruschetta chicken, Asian marinated spare ribs, and Indian Lamb curry.  And I also rendered pork lard.  This has definitely boosted my repertoire of slow cooked recipes, and will make life easier for me this school year.

HOME

  • Turn mud room into pantry – Done!  And I love it.
  • Use up or donate fabric, fiber and yarn stash – I give myself partial credit on this one.  I did go through my stash and give away stuff I knew I wasn’t going to use.  And I wrote up plans on how I will use what I kept.  I just didn’t get any projects done.
  • Rehab end table – Didn’t happen at all 😦

PERSONAL

FINANCIAL

  • Find my FICO score & improve it – Done!  I’m happy to say that my FICO score is 790, which is pretty good.  I decided to open up a new credit card account that I’ll pay off each time I use it, because increasing your available credit and paying things on time improves your score.  I’ve also increased my student loan payments by $50 a month to pay them off faster.
  • Save my receipts and track my expenses once a week – Tried this and didn’t like it.  Switched to writing everything down in a notebook, but I’ve slacked off with this one too.  Partial Credit

CAREER

    • Read at least two – three professional development books – Read one completely and half of two others.  Partial credit.
    • Read at least 15 young adult novels – Read thirteen and a half.  But also read two books for grown-ups, so I did technically read 15 books this summer.

Not a perfect 100 percent, but I’m still pretty satisfied with what I accomplished this summer.  I’ve already got my Fall goals together, and I should be posting them soon.
