First of all, Happy New Year!
Because my 12 in 2012 goal list was less than successful, I decided to break it down and be more realistic this year. On the first of each month, I will decide on 5 goals for that month. If I complete just 1 per month, I'll already be doing better than I did in 2012.
So, without further ado...my goals for January 2013.
1. Open a savings account
2. Read ONE book
3. Only eat out (lunch/dinner) TWICE per week
4. Change sheets & vacuum every Sunday
5. Lose 1 pound
Yeah, I don't have a savings account. I also make a budget every month and never stick to it. In 2013, I will try to change that. Any leftover money from my budget will go into a savings account at the end of the month. Any amount that I'm over budget will come out of my budgeting amount in the following month.
I think I'll start with this book.
My office eats lunch together every Friday, so twice a week will allow for one lunch or dinner with friends each week. If I don't pay, it doesn't count -- so bring on the dates.
I do this regularly but not on a routine. I'd like to start a routine and Sunday seems like a good day.
This will be on my goal list every month. I figure, losing 1 pound per month isn't anything extraordinary...but it will ensure that I'm at least not gaining weight this year.
What are you hoping to accomplish this year? Or even just this month?
