Happy Wednesday!

 I'm gonna be all teacher-y on you and make a personal glow on/grow on list for myself, based on how I've been doing in the New Year.  (In case you didn't figure it out...glow on is thinking about the positve things that should be praised, and the grow on are things that could still use some improvement -- we use this model a lot when we do parent/teacher conferences). 

Glow On:
*I have been much better about washing my face every night!  I used to awful at it, but now with a new skincare line (more on that later) and the results that keep me going (mostly clear skin! woo!) it's easy to stick with it.
*I have been maintaining my consistent gym routine - 3-4 times a week no matter what. 
*I have been more productive at work during the day, so I don't feel the need to stay late/come early anymore.  Sweet!

Grow On:
*I want to try and make sure Dan and I have more couple time together during the week.  I thought moving in together would mean that we would see each other automatically all the time, but in reality we really don't, given late night gym workouts, babysitting, tutoring, meet ups with other friends, dinners with parents, etc. 
*I still need to get better at saving more money, and more consistently.  I wouldn't say that I'm bad with my finances; I always pay my bills and I don't usually splurge a lot with my credit card.  However, I really want to figure out a way to save more each month, especially for retirement since my retirement benefits are pretty crap-tastic.
*I need to eat more veggies!  I have been on a fruit crave for a while now, so I'm covered with that, but I have been slacking on my veggie intake!  I hope to start packing some in my lunches from now on, whether it be a salad or some carrot sticks with hummus, or just some cut up bell peppers (Mmm!).  

I know I said I wouldn't do a New Year's Resolution post, but I guess these things can be sort of like a resolution...or just general day-to-day goals for myself.  :)
