Report on July Goals

Wednesday, July 31, 2013

So this is the 31st and I have been sitting here with my July goal list pasted to the edge of my computer all month. How have I done? Well, the really good news is that I lost the 5 lbs. I wanted to lose this month. The last one dropped this morning -- that is what I call close, but I made it! The other items on my list included:

Sell items on Ebay -- I have sold almost $250 worth of stuff that I didn't need!
Lose 5 lbs. -- I went from 153 lbs. to 148 lbs. - Yea me!
Clean out 2 refrigerators - yuck job - did that the first day to get it over!
Take photos of food for cookbook - did 8 photos and inserted them! (more to go)
Paint card table - Did not get this done (mea culpa)
Find part time job - I do have an application in the works and initial contacts made (so technically not done)

So there's the report. Actually I'm pretty happy with it. I guess my motivation to paint the card table isn't too high. Will rethink that one. The part time job -- to be honest I was reluctant to make it a high priority until I got a lead on a job (full time) that I would really like to have. Then I got resume together, put the online application in, took the supervisory test (and passed), and now I am waiting for the interview. I am really excited about it so will be praying about that one!

My main focus has been to get healthy and I am getting there. I have lost 12 lbs. so far and I am pleased with that.

Here is my August goal list:

Lose 5 lbs. by August 31st
Find, interview and secure job.
Sell $200 in items on Ebay

That's it for now. I may think of other things later, but if I become employed I don't want to have too much on my plate (pun intended!)

I do like this goal setting stuff even though it is short term, it is certainly motivating and working for me! Hope you are setting your goals and getting motivated as well!

Take great care of yourself,
