It’s already the end of January! Time has flown by this month. I want to start a monthly check-in progress report of my #22in2022.

2022 Goals: January Check-in Done List


I planned ahead with two of my DIY projects, so it was a manner of giving myself the time to complete the projects. I finished the gratitude jar over winter break. And I planned the February DIY out and bought all the supplies already.

I used Christmas bonus money to pay off my car loan. I thought my student loans were going to begin again in January, but then it was announced that the extension is going until May. We were trying to avoid one more monthly payment again, but it’s deferred again! Next we have to figure out how much is left on Zack’s truck.

2022 Goals: January Check-in To Do List

  • Read 50 books – I have started my sixth book. Check out the five books I read in January.
  • Write 10 Blog Posts per month – Yes, I did write 10 posts this month! It was a lot of planning and I’ve realized that all my efforts into writing and creating content that I haven’t been keeping up my socials! I have done a couple reels and a post here and there, but I really packed in my content in December then didn’t plan a lot for January.
  • Have at least one sponsored blog or Instagram post per month – Yes, I got to try some food and meet new influencers at Lemonshark Poke in Dallas.
  • Promote my blog in engagement groups at least once per week – I did participate in some engagement groups during each week. Some more than others. I am working on a post detailing the groups that I’ve been using. I will hopefully be done with it for next month!
  • Create welcome email series – NOT STARTED
  • Rebrand the website – NOT STARTED
  • Develop project outline for #confidenceismore – NOT STARTED
  • Grow my LTK commission by 10% – NOT STARTED
  • Complete 12 DIY projects – I completed one!
  • Pantry Upgrade – We have quite a few finishing details that we will need the time to do. There is more wood, sanding and painting involved. We had an electrician stop by to quote us on adding a couple outlets and are waiting to hear back. Other than that, we’ve been using the pantry!
  • Complete 6 pieces of art – NOT STARTED
  • Create a Capsule Collection for my clothes – NOT STARTED
  • Travel somewhere new – NOT STARTED
  • Complete 1 iFit live class per month – I walked the Commit to Fit 5K with iFit trainer John Peel
  • Complete each monthly iFit challenge – I completed the Italy Walking Series with iFit trainers Chris and Stacie Clark on January 17.
  • Lose 10 pounds by March 31 – Once I completed the monthly challenge, I found a Bora Bora Bootcamp which is 16 workout series that includes power walking, jogging, cross-training and tabata. I’m am working well towards this goal!
  • Pay off truck note – Zack has a work trip to Europe this spring, so we will be tabling this one until the summer.
  • Rollover 401K – I got my new account opened, but that is the only step I’ve taken so far. I also discovered that you can rollover your HSA accounts. Since I have three different debit cards for three different banks, I am adding in the rollover of those as well.
  • Go on more dates – We went out to Thirsty Lion on January 28th and had bread pudding for dessert. So good!
  • Drink less – This has been give and take this month.
