Looking through my favorite blogs (check my blogroll!), many have monthly goals and it is fun to read the weekly/monthly update when goals are reflected back on.
I can do this.
(This is a much easier "copy" than Sarah's pantry/fridge expose. My dredges are far too embarrassing, cluttered, and disorganized to share. I know it bugs the hell out of L too, but thankfully he is understanding and not too anal.)
So here are some goals for February. Which is my birthday month. Which, after I turned 29, I have decided that I hate my birthday. This one is one step closer to 35, which is horrifying. I hate getting old. It sucks. But that's another post.
I agree with research and the majority that goals need to be measurable, attainable, realistic, and since my life is pretty much crap right now, I am going to have a few more goals than I think most people should. But, I have the time. Thanks unemployed status.
Sunshine's February Goals:
-Call home 1x week. If you know me, you know that I HATE THE PHONE. HATE IT. Especially when I HAVE NOTHING TO TALK ABOUT. Hey S, what's up? Nothing. I'm unemployed. I sit on facebook, blog, eat, sleep, and now I workout and play football. I suck at football, and I probably won't ever see any game time, but I am trying.
And that sums up my life. Seriously. So, I see no point in calling and repeating the same dull updates. But, I will.
-Watch at least 1 movie with L. He likes movies. And he is a night-person. I am not. I need to make more of an effort.
-Try lentils. I'd like to cook with them and make something. I heard they are good for eating.
-Read 3 books. 1 Book club book, 1 YA book, and 1 Books I should have read in school but Didn't book.
-Do one of my yoga tapes at least 1X a week. I'd like to improve my mental and emotional health. Yoga helps. I love it.
-Go to Body Pump at least 1X a week. I love this class. It is hard. And crowded. And makes me sweaty. But I love it.
-Hang out at least two times with someone outside of L. I have to say 2 because I have an automatic 1 with my bookclub. I won't lie, L and I are homebodies--I am ok with that, but my friends here (and back in WI) are worth more time. I need to be a better friend--this includes making efforts to hang out with my friends.) Family excursions don't count.
Ok. I could add more, but I am pretty overwhelmed by this right now. I have 3 days to do yoga and call home and I need to haul ass with my reading progression. I guess that is what goals are for--lighting a fire under one's behind.
Consider it lit.
