Slices of January

Last month I blamed Christmas for my lack of post, this month I had to come with a new excuse. I’ll get to that in a minute as I slice January.

1 – New job! Yep, that’s my excuse for lack of posting and anything else that’s going undone. Thank goodness it’s only a part time job or I’d never get anything done!

2 – Projects completed. (Pathetic)January taffy Hopefully I can do better this year.

3 – Books read; all of them by Lois Lowry. I can’t wait to share my reviews of The Giver series with you.

4 – Pounds lost! Goodbye holiday weight… and then some.

8 – Articles written, including our Candymakers Family Book Club.

10 – New SMART goals for 2013.

21 – Days of logging my food. I love it when it pays off!

44 – Countries visited the blog. That’s up from last month!

1017 – Words added to my book. That’s not up from last month.

1769 – Page views. Thanks for another record breaking month!

SMART Goals for the New Year

Did you make a few resolutions you actually want to keep this year?  I did, and I’m so serious about keeping them, I called them goals.  I even went as far as making a plan to actually succeed.  Head over to Arizona Mama to see how I incorporated my Boy Scout training to turn my resolutions into SMART Goals!
