Resolutions, An Update

So here we are into the first month of the year (and decade!) and I wanted to update you all on my Resolutions progress. I figure I'll do this at the end of every month so that everyone can comment about how they are doing on their resolutions because I'm seriously interested and want to know if you are keeping yours, if you made new ones and tossed the old ones, and see if you guys have any suggestions that help to keep you or I on track. Please comment if you have anything to say at all. I'd love any advice and your updates.

So here is a recap of my resolutions and how they are going:


1. Write in my journal.
I haven't written weekly, but did do a monthly recap.....right before I wrote this post. See, you guys are keeping me on track already! I also bought the Kiehl's journal, and have used it a couple times.


2. This is my year of savings.
I need to make an appointment with my investor for my retirement account and I have opened my HSA.....yesterday. However, I did put more into my savings account this month than usual, should that count for something right? My beauty of a sister K also bought me the above Suze Orman book which should help.


3. Lose 15lbs by May 1st.
I have continued to count calories and have lost a total of 6lbs, 3 of which were part of the 15lbs and the other 3lbs were the pounds I needed to lose to get to the 15lbs to lose. Does that make sense?

I've also bought three workout DVDs, two Jillian Michaels and one from The Biggest Loser. I've only opened one so far, but didn't even do the full workout, just 3 of the 5 sections......and I haven't crossed the threshold of the gym....yet. I was sick for part of the month and on a mini-vacation for another one, but I'm really hoping to step up my game for February.


4. Learn to cook.
I have gathered recipes, but haven't made anything yet. I will be back in my Motherland in February and plan on cooking everyday for my grandparents. So my resolution will have started to unfold then, and not a minute sooner.

5. To be more personal on this blog.
Well, I'm writing about my progress, the good and the bad and I've also posted pictures of my Christmas gifts, and I plan on continuing the trend. Do you have any suggestions or anything you'd like to see?
