How Did I Do In 2019?

2019 ReviewWhen I started this year, I had some goals set out for this blog. I wanted to publish posts on specific subjects every Wednesday of the month. The only exception to this was on the fifth Wednesday of the month, and I got to choose the subject then. The first Wednesday was devoted to nutrition posts, and the next was for fitness. The third Wednesday was for travel, and finally, the fourth was for writing. So, let's see how I did!


  1. What Is The “My Plate” Diet?
  2. Can You Choose More Healthy Cookies?
  3. How To Save Money With A Healthy Plant-Based Diet?
  4. How To Help Loved Ones With Dementia Get Better Nutrition?

  6. How To Improve The Nutrition For Your Next Picnic?

  9. Whole Eggs or Egg Whites?
  10. Is It Healthy To Microwave Food In Plastic?
  11. So You've Hit a Weight Plateau!

OK, in the writing topic, I messed up! I don't know what happened in March, but I totally missed it. I did cover a lot on writing a memoir and in journaling. If you didn't keep one, I hope I gave you some ideas to start! Of course for the December post, it was a review of the year instead of help in writing.


  1. What's On The Agenda For This Year
  2. Is It Time To Take A New Look At Retirement
  3. 5 Simple Morning Habits of Highly Successful People
  4. Why Should You Hire A Retirement Life Coach

In this topic, I tried to post on topics that I thought might interest my readers, including laying out what was in store for the year. I'll do another of those posts next week as I plan on changing things up some!

My Scorecard

Well, except for dropping the ball in March, I think I did pretty good. I was sidelined for a few weeks in September and October after having some surgery, but I had worked hard before that to write the posts beforehand. I would give myself a B for the year!

How about you? How do you think I did for the year? I would love to hear from you in the comments below!
