13 in '13 February Update

Here is my monthly update on the 13 goals I set for myself for 2013. Check out the whole list here! 

I also made some fun new graphics to go along with my goals. 

Once again I paid myself first and put 10% of my paycheck directly into savings. I also paid myself last and put half of what was left in my checking account into savings on the last day of the month. 
I had a good reason and a bad reason for this not getting done during the 6 week Resolutions in Motion link-up I participated in. 
So I sold it. It was a handshake deal. We hadn't even put it on the market. It was pretty amazing. Then they had to back out before I got to the title company to sign papers and get their earnest money. It was a bummer, but it's okay. We are having the estate sale this weekend, so after that we will really get the ball rolling on this one.
I'm up to 2 and a half. I added Grave Surprise by Charlaine Harris to last month's Janet Evonavich book. It's more cupcake reading, but I read for fun so I am okay with it. This is a slow start to my yearly goal, but March = spring break and hopefully I can get some good reading time in!

Thank goodness I am teaching an after school Zumba class, or I fear that I wouldn't be any where near my 12 hours for this month. This month I did 11 hours and 15 minutes. Boo on me. Spring break is next month so I really have no excuse to not get closer to 15 hours.

In January a friend of mine and I started the Couch 2 5K program. (Have you heard of it? It's awesome.)  Then her house was struck with a horrible stomach bug and I was struck with a horrible case of the lazies. We just picked it back up again this week, and we started at week 3. 

How are your resolutions?

I love the Couch 2 5K program! It's great for beginners, I really need to start it again.

That's such a bummer that the house sale fell through!! I'm sure you'll have no trouble selling it though!

I want to join your Zumba class! ;)

I like Charlaine Harris's other two series better than the Sookie series.
