Spring Goals - How Did I Do?

1. Raise money for March for Babies for the March of Dimes. I raised $175 and team Eva the Diva as a whole raised over $2100 to support March of Dimes research and programs that help moms have full-term pregnancies and babies begin healthy lives. Thank you so much to my donors: Mom, Mare, Sister Arleen, and Heather!

2. Further pare down my wardrobe when I switch over my summer and winter clothes. There are a ton of shoes that must go. Dunzo. I donated three bags of clothes and shoes to Goodwill and a few boxes of other items. 

3. When Lent is over and I've completed my 46 days in a row of 40 minutes of exercise or more a day, formulate another plan and stick to it. Done. I've been doing weights Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and walking two other days. I'm also cognizant of being more active in general on the weekends although those are typically active rest days. Now it's just something I do. I'm happy with it and feeling stronger and healthier. Slow and steady.

4. Pantry and freezer clean out - use or toss. The time is now. I worked on this throughout May. The first week in June was my last cleanout week. 

5. Canoe. Done on Memorial Day weekend. Thanks Jack!
6. Yard and flower bed cleanup and flowerbed planting. Done, although I did a shitty job on the yard cleanup. 

7. Check out the Before I Die Board on Broad Street. I walked down there but it's no longer there. So fail but good try.

8. Try two new restaurants. The Kite and the Key on April 29. Tacconelli's on March 22. 

9. Go strawberry picking. I think this is on my list every year. I never do it. Fail.

10. Spend the morning in New Hope. I ran out of time for this one too. Fail.

Did you set spring goals? How did you do?

  1. Kudos to you!!! That's so wonderful how much Team Eva the Diva raised.

  2. It's not time for Strawberries around here yet but I am so excited for fresh strawberries! Congrats on doing so much work towards your goals and getting things accomplished!

  3. I love #3. I think a lot of people erroneously think they need to do ALL THE EXERCISE on ALL THE DAYS and if they can't (because no one can) they might as well not bother. But what you have going on is the key: create a manageable routine, and generally just move your body more. It's simple as that! Also, I love New Hope! Haven't been in a few years but hopefully I can squeeze in a New Hope day this summer too!

  4. Slow and steady!! Great job on all. New Hope in the morning is an interesting thought ! I like walking around Lambertville, too.
    Maybe we can do it this Fall. Too hot now.
    Love, your Momma

  5. You did an amazing job on your goals! Way to knock em outta the park.

  6. Well done!! I'm proud of you!!!!! That's impressive to accomplish so many things in such a short time!

  7. You did really good. Strawberry picking is a good one, maybe next year.

  8. That's awesome you still completed a lot of your goals for Spring :) I have been trying to be more physically active and I do at work but it doesn't work here at home on most days. Lol. Baby steps! Have a great weekend Stephanie! -Iva

  9. I didn't get to strawberry pick either, apparently some of the weather ruined the pick it yourself season here.

    Yayyy for Goodwill trips, I've been looking around lately thinking it's time to get rid of some clutter and crap. Starting with Little K's clothes, I wish I got a new wardrobe as often as she does.

  10. Not to deter you from visiting New Hope, but the one time I visited, I didn't like the shop/restaurant owners there. Everyone seemed that they were too good to greet/serve/treat me like a human being. Of course, that was also 10 years ago.

  11. You did awesome! You tried for the Before I Die wall and it's not there anymore so I call that a success on your end!

  12. i think you did pretty good! i always think about going strawberry picking as well, but have never done it. good try on the before i die thing though! and that's awesome about feeling stronger and healthier, slow and steady is definitely the way.
