In honor of the New Year and starting new, I'm going to make some goals for 2014!
Writing them down definitely seems to help and this year I am going to start off small and hopefully increase/add to my goals a little at a time. Here is what I have so far.
1- My body. Continue to go to the gym 2-4 times a week. Eat healthier including limiting my sweets/soda intake. (Notice I didn't say cut it out completely! I want REALISTIC goals here.) Cook healthier meals and buy healthier snacks. I would like to go down in weight I see on the scale and up in weight I lift. (Seems pretty vague right now but hopefully after a month or so of working out I can give actual numbers for my goal weights.) I would also like to run a 5k before the year is up.
2- My home. I am having a hard time finding balance between keeping a tidy house, working full time, and taking care of little Z. I want to do a few little chores each night after work including cooking Michael dinner and cleaning up the mess afterwards. I want to do some deeper cleanings on Saturday mornings such as cleaning the bathrooms, mopping and vacuuming. All while still having SO much fun playing with Z and watching her grow and learn. I think that updating the blog at least once a month can fall under this category as well.
3- My finances. I would like to save more money. I would like to have all of our medical bills from Z's arrival paid off. This ties in a little with #1, eating out less.
Those are my goals as of right now. Hopefully in a month or so I can add to them and increase them.
Happy 2014 everybody!
