15161469566_c43cab836a_zFebruary is officially over! Here is my total review of the month:

2014 Goals:

  1. Increase savings account to $1,000 – PASS – Savings aren’t up to $1,000, but I am over $500!
  2. Demolish $10,000 worth of debt – FAIL – But I did increase the amount paid off when compared to the January results!
  3. NO OVERDRAFT FEES! – PASS – I didn’t have any.
  4. Clear out clutter. – PASS – I made progress in February.
  5. Continue going to Crossfit 3x/week – FAIL – The very last few days of January and the beginning of February I didn’t go. First, I was sick with sinus congestion and couldn’t breathe. Then my mom had surgery and I was left to do the farm work while my parents were out of town for her surgery. After that, I worked out 2-3x/week. I am hoping to get back on track with this goal this month.
  6. Paleo 80/20 and eat down my non-Paleo food stores without replacement – PASSish – I didn’t do Paleo, but I am eating down my stores without replacement. When I re-organized my food, I got it condensed down to less shelves!
  7. Loose weight and continue to tone-up – PASSish? – I don’t think I lost anything in February, but I didn’t gain.
  8. Continue to NOT chew my fingernails – PASS – I think I’m cured 🙂
  9. More books, shoes and clothes out of my horde than new ones coming in. – PASS – net reduction of 13 books for the year, and more clothes gone.
  10. Read 52 books in 2014, that averages to 1/week – PASSish – I am one book behind, but I am currently reading 2 books that I’m almost finished with.
  11. Find areas to scale back involvement so I have more free time at home – FAIL – I’m still trying to figure out where to cut back on my schedule.
  12. Spend more time with family, friends and my pets! – FAIL – See #11 above.
