Resolution Review 6

1. Read 12 novels.
I polished off Astrid and Veronika, plowed through Elizabeth Berg's Dream When You're Feeling Blue and started John Irving's Until I Find You. I think it is safe to say that I've found my reading groove.

2. Find a new job or go back to school. Or, ideally, find a new job AND go back to school.
Seeing as how I still haven't heard about that job I interviewed for, I'd say that was a strike out. I feel like this will never happen.

3. Go to the gym with increased frequency.
Gym: Matching my previous record - which I consider a miracle, considering all of the soccer I'm playing - I made 16 trips to the gym in June! I'm at 79 of my goal of 175 in 2007.
Skating: Again, a mere 5 times. I always skate less in the summer.
Soccer: I played 14 times in June. I'm a little surprised my legs haven't fallen off.

4. Not make a weight-related resolution.
I haven't even bothered weighing myself lately. It's mostly because I'm too tired but, hey, I'll take success where I can get it.

5. Knit more.
Ummm. I picked out the knitting project that I'd like to tackle next. Maybe I can make an attempt at starting it next month.

6. Stop the incessant purchasing.
I bought a few things for our Vegas trip. Other than that, I was relatively well behaved.

7. Visit with my grandparents more.
I stopped in and saw Grandma one Friday afternoon last month. We celebrated Father's Day together, too. The best visit was on Saturday, when we went out to their boat for the weekend.

8. Cut back on the coffee/hazelnut cappuccino mix that I feast on allfrickingdaylong at work. It’s as bad as sipping on a soda all day.
While I did technically quit coffee, I managed to have one cup on a sleepy day sometime last week.

9. Become a sweet-ass juggler.
No dedicated juggling practice. Bad me.

10. Allow myself to trust Colin.
Progress was not made in June. We hit a bump and it knocked us a step back. I can't analyze it anymore than that.

June’s resolution of the month: Drink water like woah
I thought that I'd done it, because I feel like I'm constantly throwing back another glass of water and I've been really good about tracking my consumption. Not so much. I averaged 7.45 glasses of water per day. I should note that I probably got in my 64 ounces a day, because I was drinking out of a lot of big glasses, but I wasn't tracking by ounce, so I still failed.

A pinch to grow an inch: July’s resolution of the month
Rededicate myself to the job search

It's exhausting and it is disheartening, but I need to be stubbornly dedicated to finding a new job. I want to be out of here by the time my lease is up in September. The only way I'll be able to do that is by applying for jobs. I'll apply for a minimum of 20 jobs in July. Hopefully I will land some interviews. Hopefully one will stick.
