Don't hate, evaluate.

As far as January's goals went, I definitely had a hard time keeping to them.  I did ok on my water drinking, but didn't go to the chiropractor even once.  My gym attendance has been spotty, and certainly not 3x/week...  maybe once a week.

I can easily explain why--it's tough to get out of the house when baby naps from 9-11 and 1-3 in general, especially when the gym class I like is at 9am, but also when he's going through some separation anxiety issues.

So, all I can do is keep on plugging, keep on trying, along with adding in February's goals. 

Speaking of which, I just looked at February's goals and....UUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGH.  I don't wanna!!!!!

I'd love to say I'm doing great on my January goals, but that's just not the case.  It's no that I haven't been THINKING about my goals, and it's not that I don't have a ton of reasons to not be successful, but I just haven't made the progress I had hoped I would. 

The biggest problem with my success has been my baby's schedule and development.  He is currently going through separation anxiety, which has made leaving him in the gym nursery difficult.  I have made it to the gym about once a week this month, though definitely skipped one week.  Boo.

I also haven't made it to the chiropractor at all this month.  This is embarrassing because it's my own fault; I just haven't made it a priority--the story of my life.

As far as my water drinking, I haven't really been tracking the glasses I drink, though I have made a conscious effort to drink more water and to monitor how I feel--dehydrated, tired versus drinking enough.
