January 2012

Wednesday, January 04, 2012

I have always been horrible at keeping a consistent blog or journal. Ha!

It is 2012 and I have joined the spirit of goal making, with my own twist. As I have learned through SparkPeople, it is very important to make ACHIEVABLE goals. I have set goals for January, because month to month makes more sense to me and allows me to be more specific. So instead of "keep the house picked up" I have a few things I want to get organized this month. . . then I will continue, and likely repeat.

My January 2012 goals are posted on my refrigerator with a little box for each week (divided if there are multiple times per week) and I will check them off as I go. I do love to check and cross things off that I have accomplished!

-Pick up desk pile
-Organize clothes
-Organize bedding
-Organize closet
-Pay USM bill (taking 1 graduate level class this month - my first!)
-Set up Mint (online budget making and tracking)
-Set guidelines for clean eating
-Eat non-yogurt breakfast 1x per week (trying to cut down dairy but love my yogurt!)
-Track food daily
Health & Exercise:
-Floss 2x per week
-Go to kickboxing once (I have been doing zumba only!)
-Go to gym 2x per week
-Get to work by 8:15am 2x per week (supposed to be here at 8, but no one cares and it is more often 9 for me)
-Read for 20mins 2x per week (I never read, and have lots that I want to!)
-Follow school board

Sooooooo. . totally do-able, especially because I already go to the gym 2 times a week and have been very good about tracking nutrition in the past.

New for me is that I made a motivational collage for the first time ever! I even made 2! They are the same pictures, one for home and one for work to remind me of my goals.

I also need to SAVE MONEY because my mini family is headed to DisneyLand on Feb 21st and I failed miserably at saving money through the holidays. The upside is that the easiest way to save money is to not go out to eat. . . which is also the easiest way to meet my nutrition goals! Just need to keep telling myself that every day!
