**UPDATE** This is a re-post of my Goal List from the beginning of the year! Updates/Additions are in red…and new goals added at the bottom!
EVERY year I make myself resolutions and EVERY year I forget them because a) there are so many of them and b) I never write them down.
THIS YEAR, all that will change (hopefully). I have decided I will not call them resolutions. They will be GOALS and I am splitting them up into categories: Physical/Mental Goals, Financial Goals, Work Goals & Miscellaneous. Then, I will make a plan for how to accomplish these goals…it’s one thing to say it, it’s another to actually DO it
Run a 1/2 Marathon
- Run is booked for April 21st, 2013 – DONEEEEEEEE and you can read about it HERE
- Cross Train my Workout
- Zumba, Running & Tabata – DOING!
- Meditate/Yoga once a week to calm my mind & stretch my muscles
- This will be my new Saturday morning routine– Have done once…damn Yoga is hard. My brain does NOT want to relax
- Add more Fruits and Vegetables to my diet
- Make more meal plans for each week and incorporate more veggies/fruits into snacks – eh…somewhat done. Trying to eat more veggies at each meal
- Reach my Goal/Healthy Weight of 150lbs
- I have re-joined WW…I have lost weight on this before (and kept it off) so I am going to try again-Re-opened. Have since gained the weight back and working through that
De CLUTTER the apartment
- J and I are making plans every weekend to attack a certain part of the apartment to purge – We moved! So that fixed that!
- Pay off any left over VISA/School Debt
- Automatically comes out of each pay cheque. Leaving ONE VISA at home so it does not get used, and keeping one in my wallet for emergency only– work in progress
- Save for a Trip in the summer (We’re thinking of road tripping EAST)
- Also comes out of each of our pay cheques and into a savings account – went away to Philly & Washington instead in the spring. Summer trip is unlikely, looking for a new apartment instead
- Went to Montreal for our 1 year anniversary!
- Save for at least 1/2 a house down payment
- Ditto above– Opened our RSP’s so sort of starting to save for a house this way
- Not quite, but getting there
Budget more carefully
- Have a spreadsheet laid out for what comes out of each cheque and what money goes where We’ve had a few hiccups, but overall, we’re getting there
Reach 25,000 Fans on our page
- YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS WE DID IT
Become more organized so less gets missed/forgotten
- Read Dad’s book to learn more
- Personal goal I know about but not going to put here
- Learn to play ONE new song on the Piano
- Song: NEW SONG: To a Wild Rose – half of song learned!
Keep a Memory Jar
- Has been made & started – have fallen behind in putting memories in, but will re-start this
- Get a Library Card and start going to the Library! – LOVE THE LIBRARY! New fave place on earth!
**NEW GOALS for the rest of 2013**
FIND A NEW HOME – preferably with a backyard for our Mollycakes
- Run another half marathon – why? Good question…mostly because I want to capture that feeling that I had last time after I finished…pure amazingness
- Start selling my treats and baked goods at craft fairs/farmers markets etc. while also communicating my message of enjoying food & being healthy at the same time
- Develop this this blog & my facebook page into more of a community/space for exercise hating people like me
Run a Colour Run – because it looks like an awesome good time, I mean, look at that…SO COOL!
- Continue to save for a vacation, but more likely to happen near the holidays
- Get my handsome hubby out running with me and Molly
