March Report Card

For those of you who have not read my resolutions post, this is the final result of how my month has been in terms of March Resolutions. Here goes...

March Report Card

1. Learn ASL: F
This one didn't happen. Even though last month, I practiced about 5 signs. Maybe I should aim for a lower, more reasonable goal and go back to 5 signs per month.

2. Classic Reader Project (Catching up on Omnibus reading): B-
I did well on making a plan to get Omnibus all caught up within the next few weeks and making a dent into it, but the goal was to get completely caught up, which didn't work.

3. Diary Writing Project: F
I'll admit, I'm embarrassed with this one. I completely forgot about diary writing. I'll try again this April to make it a habit.

4. Teach Youth Group: A
Finally a good grade! :) I hope to be teaching sometime in the near future. 

5. Bible Reading Project: C
I began reading some from Proverbs, and was reminded multiple times of stories from Judges. I haven't completely read through both books, but I got an excellent ESV Study Bible for Easter this year, so I will definitely do my best to follow through on it in April. 

6. Gluten Free/Sugar Free Cooking Project: A+
I tried multiple variations on the peanut butter cookie recipe, including Almond Mocha and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip. As for cooking recipes, I found multiple things including gluten-free soups and sandwiches, rice, a chicken curry salad, and the many wonderful ways of the egg. :) It's not completely impressive, I know, but it's much better than where I was this time last year.

7. Fitness Project: C-
I did very well with gluten-free, and was diligent about finding ways to exercise outside of P.E., I just need to be willing to wake up early enough and find times during the day to follow through on them.

8. Music Goals (Practice): D-
Once again, I failed to practice very much outside of rehearsals at all, let alone 45 minutes per week. Perhaps I need to create a better system to keep myself better accountable about practicing.

Total Grade Average: C-

Yuck. I obviously didn't do very well this month. I learned a couple of things from this: first, I need to keep checking resolutions throughout the month to make sure that I am following through on each resolution as much as possible, and second, I should not make goals that in reality are not likely to be reached.

If you'd like, be sure to share your resolutions and report card for March.

Question for the reader: What were your monthly resolutions for March? Did you have a good report card?

"The plans of the diligent lead surely to abundance, but everyone who is hasty comes only to poverty." --Proverbs 21:5


  1. A good rule of thumb for monthly resolutions is to make sure you don't set more than one or two big goals, and always throw at least one in that you KNOW you'll complete easily. It helps with morale, if nothing else! ;) I also write my resolutions out on my calendar so I'll be reminded of them throughout the month. All that said, C- isn't that terrible of a grade, especially considering how many big goals your set for yourself in March! Just remember, these grades don't reflect our value as a person.. they're just a fun motivational tool :)
