Setting my 2013 Goals

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

This seems like the first time in my life that I feel like I only have to say, continue what I have been doing. I feel like I have made huge strides this past year in gaining control over my emotional eating. Also, I am consistently working out, so that when I do eat more calories than I intend to, I burn them off.

These are my goals for 2013

1. Lose an average of one pound a week to reach my goal weight by next New Year's Eve.
2. Continue walking and jogging with doing 60K steps per week.
3. Seriously plan to retire. I am so afraid to take this leap of faith that I will have enough money to live on since who knows what our economy is going to do. But I will take all the necessary steps to see if I can retire by this summer.
4. Plan a nice vacation to take after I retire. We have been thinking about buying an RV, or a 2nd home in Arizona so we can be snowbirds. So this is a pretty big decision.
5. Help my son and his girlfriend in their new business and try and get them on a strong financial footing.
6. Continue developing our YouTube website which can hopefully pay me a small retirement income.
7. Show up and be active here on Spark because it is the place and the people who help keep me accountable. Thank you Spark friends.

  emoticon emoticon emoticon Happy New Year! These are some exciting and life changing pursuits for 2013! I can't wait to hear more about it!!!

emoticon my grandparents were snowbirds to So Cal, and also pulled a travel trailer, back in the day, and would take 3 - 4 mos trips and go toodle different parts of the country, visiting all the state capitals & sites that struck their fancy... like the upper NE states, the dakotas & gr8 lakes, at a time... i loved the idea & we ponder toodling too... I think retirement can be active & exciting & how fun would it be to have things you can do from anywhere over the puter... exciting!
