I don't make New Years Resolutions. I don't think I ever have. Resolutions are made and then forgotten about, usually, before the end of January. There are some things I want to accomplish this year so instead of calling them resolutions I'm going to call them goals. I'm also going to break them down throughout the months. Making them short term will mean they'll likely get reached instead of being forgotten about. Also, I'm limiting each month's goals to 10 to keep from feeling overwhelmed and at the end of each month I will do a post updating on my goals.
January 2012's Goals
1.) Blog more. Won't be that hard to accomplish this one, I don't think I posted at all in December.
2.) Potty train Bug. She is not even a little bit interested in "The Big Girl Potty". Any ideas? We had her in training pants & big girl-tinker bell undies last week and we'd sit her on the potty for 5-10 minutes only to have her get up and pee a couple of minutes later.
3.) Lose 8-10 pounds. I have GOT to get rid of this baby weight. I have been using myfitnessplanner.com for about two weeks now. Tracking my calories and activity level has been fun and its a free website that is similar to using WW. I have lost 3 pounds but I have a LONG ways to go before I'm where I want to be.
4.)Days 1-30 of P90X. It will help me accomplish goal #3.
5.) Write a business plan for SBE. I haven't done a darn thing for SB's since I had 2.0 and I feel like I've lost motivation to make the business happen. I had a pretty hard blow from a potential customer at the end of November. He called asked if I could do something custom for a cigar box he was making ((that would have been FRICKIN SWEET)) and when I gave him the price quote he gave me the old, "Let me talk to my wife..." and I haven't heard from him since. Jerk. Anyways, I let the fact that someone found no value in what I do get to me and between that and not being on the ball for Christmas last year ((hehe)) I am just feeling behind.
6.) Clean my office. It looks like a two year old has gone in there and thrown paperwork, boxes, supplies and stacks of bills everywhere. It's weird. Definitely not helping the business rut I feel in.
7.) Go on a few dates with my husband. J will be deploying soon and it would be nice to have some Us-time before he goes. I made an agreement with one of my awesome neighbors where I will babysit for them and she'll babysit for us. So hopefully we can take advantage of that and get some good date time in before her leaves.
8.) Take more pictures of the girls. Time is zooming by WAAAYYY too fast ((what happened to days that used to drag?)) & I want to remember everything.
9.) Start planning a wine-tasting party for the end of Feb. I've never had one and having it at the end of February will combine two of my favorite things ((wine & friends)) at a time when I will likely need the both of them the most.
10.) Paint the living room. While J has been on block leave we got the kitchen decorating done with a new backsplash & paint color. Bug helped us out in the decorating department by finding an orange crayon somewhere and adding a large piece of artwork to a wall in the living room ((isn't she helpful?)) I will pick a room a month to finish while J is gone. The LR would have been the first on my list but I guess there is no harm in starting a month early.
Alright, let's see how this goes.
