It's time to look back at the "Summer Bucket List" I made back at the end of May and see how I did.
~ Clean the house. By that, I mean really clean the house.
I actually did pretty well with this. Doing those posts of my house may have helped a little; I didn't want to let y'all think that I didn't take care of my house! :)
~ Clean out closets. There are a couple of closets that have been neglected; I need to pay attention to them and get them reorganized.
The hall closet was reorganized and cleaned out. That was the main one I wanted to do. I still need to do the front hall closet. We have quite a few jackets that are just hanging in there that need to be donated.
~ Look through the totes in the basement and purge them. We've been in the house for almost 10 years; it's time to seriously get in there and get rid of some stuff.
I made it through some of the totes, but I couldn't do anything else because the stuff in there isn't mine.
~ Eat right. I'm a stress eater, and this past school year was very stressful, which resulted in quite a bit of weight gain.
Yeah for this one!!! I did very well with this. My lab results for my A1C & cholesterol (as well as the numbers on the scale) confirmed this.
~ Exercise more. (See the previous explanation)
See above. I walked every weekday at 6 a.m., except for a couple of days when we were in Mobile & Huntsville, and then a couple of days after Mama passed away. I also did my arm exercises. I gave myself a break on the weekends.
~ Read. I have about a gazillion books on my Kindle app that need to be read.
I did much better in June than July, but I only have 1 more book to finish before I complete my Goodreads Book Challenge. I'm about half-way through "Killing Jesus" (Bill O'Reilly).
~ Keep the tv off during the day.
I kept the tv off most days until around 5 or 6 pm. Except when I watched "Orange is the New Black". I watched it through ChromeCast (like Apple TV) and it was easier to watch it while CH was at work so I wouldn't slow down the internet when he wanted to play
~ Limit my time on the computer during the day.
Some days were better than others. I would check emails & read blogs a little bit in the morning, then close my laptop and do things around the house.
~ Do a better job at blogging.
Looking back at the number of posts I wrote, I guess I could've done better than I did. Out of all the items on my list, this one was the least successful.
So, there you have it. If you had a summer bucket list, how did you do or how are you doing (since it's really the middle of summer!)?
