Goals, mid-January progress

Halfway through the first month of the year, let's take a look at those goals! ;)
  1. Lose an average of one pound a week - I'm a little ahead of this one (YAY!), and hopefully we'll keep on trucking with this.
  2. Work out at least 20 times a month - 14 workouts so far!  I'm terrible at working out at home though, and haven't done that once yet.  But I have had a couple of more active outings with my son, so that's a bonus!
  3. Cook one new (and healthy!) recipe a month - I made goat cheese from scratch today!  Not sure if that's particularly healthy, but it was new to me and it was just three ingredients (goat's milk, citric acid, salt).  Not sure it's worth the effort and expense, but I'll probably do it again. ;)  I've also improvised two dinners this month that turned out pretty good.
  4. Make an effort to eat clean and healthy the majority of the time - I'm on track with this one.  I have had a tough time a few days this month, and haven't given into the fast food temptation (even though I've REALLY wanted french fries a couple of times!).  Part of it is because I'm focusing on the clean eating - so even though I want fries, I really don't want McDonald's fries with the "natural beef flavor" and other odd ingredients.  I'd be happy to have In-N-Out or Five Guys, but there aren't any drive-thrus nearby for those, so I haven't had the fries. ;)  
So there we go!  I missed workouts two nights in a row this week due to husband needing to unexpectedly work late a few times, and a couple of nights, I really didn't want to go, but I dragged myself and I'm glad the scale is reflecting it.  I really hate missing workouts two days in a row - today I won't be able to go to a class, but I did yesterday and I am really hoping it works out for me to make it to one tomorrow night.  

Hope your goals are motivating you, too!
