#BookishResolutions Progress Report ~ February 2016

The 2016 Bookish Resolutions Challenge is hosted by 
Laura at trips down imagination road and Michelle at Because Reading.

The Road So Far...
>I remember now why I stopped doing challenges. I suck at them. LOL Since I'm rusty at challenges, and resolutions in general, I've decide that January, my least favorite month btw, is going to be my practice month even though it looks like I didn't do too bad. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
>February is not looking much better. I hate challenges.
Reading Goals
1.  Get my NetGalley % up to a minimum of 80. Currently at 45%
**I'm guessing I need to read at least 2 per month to boost my % and I managed that even though the reviews haven't gone up yet. Goal reached**

2.  Finish 3 series that I ha
ve started and that are now complete.
          Sookie Stackhouse
          The Hollows
          Night Huntress
**Zero progress on this front so far. Goal in progress**

3.  Listen to a minimum of 1 audiobook a month in addition to the ones with the boys.
**Goal reached for February**

4.  Work on backlogged review requests. Try to rebuild review spreadsheet that was lost when computer crashed to help with this goal.
**Currently 1 complete. Spreadsheet may be a bust, but I'll still attempt it some point. Goal in progress**
Blog Goals
1.  Write reviews no more than 24 hrs after completing book unless real life interferes.
**Been pretty good with this goal. Real life interferred a little but I got them all done. Goal reached**

2.  Draft posts for current reads, so I only have to slot in the review when finished. 
**Goal reached**

3.  Draft meme posts a few months ahead of time.
**I have all but 3 days scheduled for March. However, I should have those done and ready by the end of this week. I have a few for April already done. Goal reached**

4.  Maintain alternating schedule as closely as possible: M-W-F then T-TH-S with a weekly Sunday Post. 
**Goal reached**

5.  Start new memes: Book Treasures and Kindle Reviews
**Meme graphics done by Michelle at Limabean Designs and first posts are ready for Feb. Goal reached**
Personal Goals
1.  Develop healthier habits.
         Move more
         Drink more water
         Give yoga a try
a. Drinking more water means getting up to pee more often. So, two birds, one stone. 
b. I am drinking more water.
c. Still no progress on the yoga front.
Goal in progress**

2.  Get this catastrophe of a filing system under control.
**Yeah, right. Not even. Goal in progress**

3.  Write/plot/research my stories a minimum of 20 minutes, 3 days a week.
**Does in my head count? Because then I totally rocked this goal. Goal stumbled**

Bonus: Money permitting, finish the Exterior Library. Post pics.
**No extra monies yet and tax refund is earmarked for other things.**


  1. You are not doing bad at all and it is only March so you got plenty of time! :)

  2. Ah there is plenty of time to work on some of them goals, I didn't do all that great with this challenge either...lol.

    1. It doesn't feel like there's plenty of time left. lol

  3. Good luck with all of your goals and challenges. I think I will be giving challenges a miss as I am hopeless at keeping them up!!!

    1. This is the 1st one I've done in a few years. I'm not sure I'll do any more. I'm just not up to doing challenges any more.
