January Goals

Thursday, January 04, 2018

In my last blog I talked about my goals for 2018 overall. However, to get to these goals I need small mini goals so I decided I would do monthly goals like I have done in the past.

Here are my goals for January 2018:

emoticon Goal #1: Log all my food

emoticon Goal #2: Fit in ME time and ensure I get my workouts in - This one is hard during these months due to gymnastics meets and wresting meets. But I am going to make sure I fit it in!

emoticon Goal #3: Make sure the house is picked up before I go to bed - Having a messy house stresses me out. So doing a little picking up before heading to bed will help ease my stress. It only takes a few minutes to put things away, wash dishes, etc...

emoticon Goal #4: Start looking for races/walks/rides to participate in 2018. I already got a jump start on this goal and found some great races I want to sign up for in 2018. Most of these the sign ups are not up and running yet. But I have my list ready! Here are a few I am going to do:

May 5: Jump to it 10k

June 3: Hope In Motion 5k (This race is to honor the survivors of cancer. The money raised goes to the Angel Fund helping families cope with cancer.)

June 23: Get your Rear in Gear (Another race for colon cancer in Rochester, MN)

July 15-19: Tour De Minnesota (MS Tram! I did this last year and LOVED it so I already signed up for it again this year.)

Sept. 10: Tour De Tush Bike Ride (Another ride to support and raise awareness of colon cancer)

As you can see most of these races revolve around colon cancer which is what my husband is fighting right now. I am going to dedicate each race to him!

I think these four goals will help me make a great start to my overall 2018 goals! I will post at the end of the month how I do and then make new goals for February.

How about you?.... Does setting smaller goals help you achieve your bigger overall goals?

    Prayers to you and your hubby. I am so sorry to hear he is dealing with this. emoticon I'm catching up and just read your other blog where you mentioned he's been sick.

    I am here if you even need a listening ear ... I have no idea what either of you are going through but a listening ear is all we need sometimes. emoticon And virtual hugs emoticon My friend.

    I think you are onto a great plan here setting yourself monthly goals.

    My first step & goal - I am going to give the SP 30-day small changes challenge a go to see if that jump starts me back to a healthier track. I know when I started my journey way back in July 2010 that I set myself small goals/rewards and tried to keep my streaks alive and see how long I could do it!

    Day 1 complete - I shared my goal with someone! emoticon LOL

    Great strategy to have monthly mini goals so you can have continuing successes instead oif just steps toward a long term goal!

    Keep on keeping on!

    Make today the greatest day of your life,
    emoticon Until tomorrow!
