SMART habit Saturday-February review and March goals

*If you would like more information about SMART habit Saturday or want to know what other people are being SMART about, check out Lara at The Lazy Organizer.

February Review- Click here to see what my goals were for February. Unfortunately my habits fell to the wayside for most of the month while Brad was ill and I was injured. It was hard keep up on the general tidiness of the house and exercise while my mobility was limited. Going back to my January goal, meal planning, while I didn't post menu plans for the last couple of weeks, I did do basic menu plans. Meals were very simple around here. Soups, sandwiches, pizza and pastas. We did eat out a little bit more as well but these things happen.

March Goals- I really like the general tidiness goal and my chore list. I am going to focus on this for the first half of the month only, and hope that I have a success rate of 11 days or better in the first 2 weeks.

I have NO CHOICE but to continue with the exercise goal. In fact, I have to adapt it a little as well. At my last doctor's appointment I was told I should be doing at least 45 minutes of mild to moderate exercise everyday. So my goal now is swimming with Ryan twice a week, yoga dvd 3 times a week and a 45 minute walk EVERYDAY.

In the second half of March I want to move on to a new goal. I will need to start getting ready for the baby's arrival. There is work to be done on our main level, there is a junk room to be cleaned out, there are meals to plan for, make ahead and freeze, there is baby laundry to be done, the boys room needs to be organized a little better with room to be made for the new baby's items, there are things to get together for a possible garage sale, and definitely things to put together for the baby sale. I will tackle each task 1 or 2 weeks at a time starting mid March and going into April.

Oh my goodness, I haven't even thought about getting ready for this baby. I'm sure we will be scrambling to get the crib up the last week!
