2012 Goals Update | February Wrap Up

It’s been three weeks since my last goal update and while I feel once a week is a little too often for progress reports, I’m kinda missing the frequent reminders.  There’s got to be a happy medium!  Maybe mid month and month end?  I don’t know for sure but hopefully I’ll find a rhythm in this process eventually…

But even without the constant reminders, I’ve been doing pretty well on my goals.  I completed another project on my 12 projects for 2012 list, I’ve been (mostly) keeping up with c25k with the exception of a minor quad injury last week, we paid off our last credit card, and I made it through 6 weeks of a gluten-free diet.  So I’m gonna call that a win.

But I have also been feeling that perhaps my goal setting isn’t specific enough, so I am going to change the format a bit this time.  But as usual, this is a work in progress.

Here is what I hope to accomplish in March…

Health Goals

  • Finish weeks 3-6 in the c25k program.
  • Complete 20-30 minutes of yoga 2-3 times per week.
  • Review my supplement regiment and replenish supply.

Financial Goals

  • Try new bill paying system.  (More on this if I like it!)
  • Cancel credit cards.
  • Shop for a new home/car/life insurance provider.
  • Prioritize saving goals with Matt.

Family Goals

  • Have at least two at-home date nights and maybe one real date?
  • Print off new activity sheets for Allison.
  • Plan some fun “staycation” activities for Allison for when I’m on vacation.

Home Goals

  • Clean out the playroom and donate some toys to make room for new ones that will inevitably arrive on her birthday.  *crossing fingers for less toys and more clothes* 
  • Shred old paperwork from file cabinets and organize current files.
  • Work on a manageable cleaning schedule.
  • Start seeds for veggie garden.

Personal Goals

  • Pull out the (new to me) serger and figure out how to use it!  Then serge edges of diaper wipes.
  • Buy some new clothes that actually fit.

Blogging Goals

  • Install a new theme to my blog.
  • Finish designing a blog button. 
  • Shoot some photos for future blog posts.

Phew!  That’s kinda a long list!  But I do have the entire month to do it.  I’ll try a mid month update so that I don’t freak out the last 3 days of March trying to finish 15 things.

How do you keep on track with your goals?

    That’s a great list! I’m so unorganized in my goal setting – one of my goals is just to get better at it. 😛

    P.s. I’m working on a blog button right now, the designing is killing me – now I know why I have my brother do my designing LOL!

      I know the feeling. I do my own design work and buttons are my least favorite. I apparently have difficulty working within small spaces. :)

    Looks good. I love your 12 projects idea. I did 12 goals for 2012, but I should have added some stuff to do around the house. Those little things are hard to build energy for sometimes.

    Good luck with you C25K!

      Thanks! I feel like I could’ve made a longer list because I’m nearly halfway through. I may have to revise/add mid-year. I’m really shocked at how motivating a public list can be.
