Six Month Resolution Check-Up
What’s the point of making New Year’s Resolutions if you don’t continually check in to see how you’re doing? Well, it’s been half a year since I made my latest round of resolutions, so let’s see how I’m doing and if I need to make any adjustments.
- Set up a meeting with a financial planner.
I’m taking this off the list. I’m very comfortable with my financial situation right now.
- Limit fried potato intake to once a month.
This has been surprisingly a LOT easier than I expected it to be. However, the problem is that I’ve been eating other variations of fried food (twinkies, chicken tenders, etc). Therefore, this resolution is being tweaked. Instead of one order of fries per month, it is now one fried food item per two-week span. We’ll see where that gets me.
- Visit Kansas City’s museums.
I’m not doing so well on this one. Re-doubling efforts.
- Pay off other credit card.
On target to pay off the other card by Christmas. Hope nothing bad happens.
- Walk to work at least twice a week.
Out of the 26 weeks so far this year, I’ve walked to work 57 times. I’m a little ahead of schedule.
- Use all of my vacation days.
- Go through storage items and purge.
I keep waiting for a crummy weekend to do this, but I should just start weeding through stuff once a week for a few hours.
- Boycott shopping at Wal-Mart.
I haven’t been in a Wal-Mart in nearly two years. How refreshing.
- Limit my soda intake to one a month.
Those occasional Cokes are lovely.
I feel like I’m doing pretty well. Time for some museums and less fried-foods. How is everyone else doing?
