― Leo Tolstoy. “Spring is the time of plans and projects.”
I love this quote and enjoy having a bit of a spring clean. In fact, I read somewhere that spring cleaning is actually good for your mental health and it releases endorphins. My WOTY this year was plan and it’s fully something I want to embrace, this prompt felt like a good opportunity to review these plans.
So my plans were:
|Food plans||Mostly on track (I have been following a monthly plan)|
|Exercise plan||Some variations but still an increase, so I don’t want to beat myself up about it too much.|
|Budget plan||Mostly on track, with everything going up in value we probably need to readjust a little.|
|Blog Post Plan||Mostly on track with the introduction of Tile Tales on Monday, followed by Book Reviews on Tuesday, WQW participation and #Writephoto Thursdays.|
|Research for the new novel||Time limitations have caused some issues with this but it’s still in the pipeline.|
|My Goodreads book reviews||Mostly on track.|
|More Writing (ideally finish first draft of one novel and start first draft of the second).||Time limitations have caused some issues with this but I hope to be back on track asap.|
I also planned to revive my travel ambitions this year (if time and covid allowed), and luckily that has proven to be the case (although I am sticking with the UK for the moment). We took a brilliant trip to London earlier in March. I was hoping to visit the tower but we decided with our little guy it would be too much so we’ve saved that for another time.
We have a wonderful trip to Skye booked for later in the year. Two very different holidays.
I haven’t totally achieved all my targets but I think I have made good progress and I’m happy with that.
Have you set yourself any plans for this year? If so, I’d love to hear them.
