February Goals

in Adventures, goals

I’m doing my monthly and yearly goals a little differently this year.  You can read all about that here.
1.      Budget – Stick to my spending limits.  I set some spending limits last month, but now I’ve got to stick to them.  I may need to redo some of the limits, but I hope to do my best to stick to the limits I’ve set for myself.  I have a feeling that my grocery budget may be the hardest one to stick with, but I’m going to try!
2.      Food – Try at least one new recipe a week.  I’ve done this before, to decent success, so I thought I would give it another shot.  My to-try recipe stack is getting really extreme and trying new recipes is a great way to fix that problem.  I have two new recipes in this week’s menu plan, so that’s a good start so far!
3.      Blogging – Move to my own domain name!  I’m so excited about this goal! I’ve been working with a blog designer and she suggested I go ahead and buy and move to my own domain, so the plan for this month is to buy and move the blog to a new domain.  Get ready for some big changes!
4.      Social – Make plans with friends and stick to them.  I’m keeping this goal from last month because I don’t feel like I kept to it as much as I could have.  I hope to make social plans at least twice a week, but I’m not going to put a requirement on it.  The goal is to avoid turning into a hermit and get my butt off the couch.
5.      Personal – Get back to doing my quiet times.  I’ve fallen off the wagon on this and it’s time to get back on.  It always makes my day better when I start off with a reading and prayer, but I don’t have anything against doing it a night or when I find the time.  As long as I get back into the habit. 
Have you set your monthly goals?  Want to share?

1. Budget tracking is always a good idea. 🙂
2. I wish. I'm still trying to not burn stuff when I cook it. 😉
3. That's so exciting!!! I can't wait to see it!!!
4. I need to do the same, especially when Manny leaves for training.
5. I think the gym is going to be my quiet time. It's not exactly quiet, but it is me time.

Ooooh dear. Another month and I haven't gotten on the bandwagon with finding time to blog! Or answer emails (I'm sorry). Or find time for me! My life feels like a whirlwind 😡 Can you make it slow down please????

I love your goals…. And I sincerely hope you accomplish them all!

I think I'm looking at these:
1) Carve time out to blog
2) Manage yoga three nights a week
3) Spending Fast (similar to Cate Linden's!)
4) Print STDs for the wedding
5) Come out ahead on credit cards again

I like your idea of monthly goals. Some of mine are:
1. Track my spending for the month so I can create a realistic budget.
2. Schedule time for homework and stick with it – trying kick this procrastination habit.
3. Regular exercise
4. Daily quiet time
5. Start cooking more…both more often per week, and trying new recipes
