March Goals / February Revisited

Ah, hello March! It’s hard to believe Spring is practically here. This school year has been passing quickly. February came and went in a blink of an eye. So, how did I do with my goals for the month of February?

1. Complete my first course for principal certification with an A – Check! I’m officially six weeks into my program at this point.

2. Rollover my retirement savings into a traditional IRA – Check – sort of! I definitely got the ball rolling, and it’s about 90% taken care of.

3. Post at least twice a week and grow this blog – Epic fail, but my expectations were not very realistic in the first pace. For March, I will set monthly goals instead of focusing on weekly ones.

4. Dedicate at least six hours a week to language learning – Check!


Well, we live and learn, right? Here go my goals for the month of March!

1. Work on the landscaping around my house – Spring is almost here, which calls for plenty of outdoor plant maintenance! Last Spring we planted many tropical plants in our back yard, and the year before that, we completely revamped our front garden beds. I’m looking to improve on what we already have and add some more awesome plants over Spring Break!

2. Continue improving my Spanish language skills by dedicating at least six hours a week to language learning – I’ve completed the Duolingo Tree, so I’m continuing to use the “Practice” function for additional practice. This month I want to finish the Destinos series, and get some talking practice in through Italki.com

3. Work out at least 4x a week. This used to be so easy for me, but with so many commitments, exercise has truly taken a backseat. Well, not any more… this is a healthy lifestyle blog, for crying out loud. I should be setting a better example!

4. Write 8 blog posts – Instead of setting a goal of posting twice a week, I’m going to set the goal of at least 8 posts for the month of March. That seems much more doable with Spring Break coming up, and some weeks being busier than others.

5. Plan for summer travels. Justin (my husband and I) are undecided on exactly how much traveling we will be doing over the summer, due to our graduate school schedules and the demands of keeping up with our house. At the very least, I would like to spend 1-2 weeks in Mexico participating in a language immersion program. If we can make it to a couple camping trips in some National Parks, that would be even better, but who knows? It is going to be a busy summer.


Wish me luck with these! What are your goals for March?
