Review of January goals

It is time to review how I did this month with my goals.

Goals for January 2015

I am going to try this again and hopefully this year be more successful.

Home Goals:
1.  inventory pantry, deep freezers and fridge.  All "food stuffs" and plan menus around this first.
  I did this twice this month
2.  organize sewing room now that Christmas is over.   Did not get this done
3.  go through kitchen"gadgets" and get rid of what I don't use  Not done
4.  clean "room of holding"  started but not finished


Health Goals:
1.  start working out 3 x a week  big fail
2.  record what I eat and when to see patterns  I did start this process
3.  test blood sugar more regularly  not consistent
4.  cut down soda to 2 a day  Yes
5.  lose three pounds  I lost 1.5 pounds


Spiritual Goals:
1.  start reading my bible every day  yes
2.  listen to more worship music  yes
3.  participate in ladies class at church  yes


Relationship Goals:
1.  have two dates night with dh  we did
2.  try to set up a "girls day" to craft  this did not work out
3.  have ds and his wife over for dinner once this month  we did and enjoyed it
4  have dd and her husband over for dinner twice this month  We had them over once.

Kind of a mixed bag this month.  I have worked more than expected which did not help. Hopefully next month will be better.  I will post those goals tomorrow.

We will see if these are doable or if next month I need to be more specific.

Looking Ahead instead of Behind ...

This past year has been a rough one for our family.  We dealt with our fair share of disappointments and joys.  So today I will look ahead to 2015.

I normally do not make resolutions as I rarely get half of them done but this year I am determined to make some changes and I want to be held accountable.

Hopes for 2015:

1.  To get us financially stable.  This is a huge one as retirement is looming in the near future.
2.  We need to start eating better.  I know this is one that most people list but we are dealing with some health issues that make it vital that we do this.
3.  Learn to let go what I can not control.  The doctor once again, told me to destress recently.
4.  Meet my short term weight loss goals.
5.  Meet more of my monthly goals.


We hope to travel more in 2015 to see family and friends.  Now that both kids are married we feel that we can do this more now.

Hear is to a healthy and happy 2015.
