This month, I am really taking the time to focus on goals and goal setting. I am trying to create a few different aspects and breaking my goals down into very manageable portions. Often times, I get overwhelmed and feel I try to take on entirely too much too fast and that ends up in burnout and not completing even one task. So, here we can have a place for accountability for our goals.
Goal 1 – Create a morning routine. I want to start getting up at 6 a.m. Like out of bed, up at 6, not hitting snooze for the 6th time that morning. Having a six month old, sleep is often times so hard to come by, so I value it. But, having a little extra time in the morning to curl my hair, put on makeup, have a second cup of uninterrupted coffee, blog, whatever it is I chose to do, would be so nice. To accomplish this goal I will be starting with 10 minutes per week earlier.
Goal 2 – Blog more. I want to start creating something outside of working and coming home that I can do for me. I love having this little space and want to start utilizing it more. To accomplish this goal I will be blogging twice a week. Consistency is key here.
Goal 1 – Etsy. I have started a tiny Etsy store of my own and really want to put a lot of focus into that this month. I have a whopping one item in my store as of now, but for this month I am going to work on getting at least ten items in my store by the end of the month.
Goal 1 – Run, run, run. I am finally at a place where I feel I have a little time and with the weather cooling off, I feel like I can run for at least 30 minutes on my lunch break, which is awesome now. So, I am committing to running at least 3 days a week. I have been on a RunKeeper plan for beginning runners and I am going to finish that and start a new plan for training. I will finish that plan this month.
Goal 2 – Back to healthy eating. Running at lunch provides me time to do meal planning/prepping and cooking at nights. It is something I can do that I really enjoy and helps out my family. Through October, I am going to accomplish every Sunday doing my planning for the following week. *I will do a dedicated post on this this week as well.
Ok, there we have it. Here is a great place to keep up with my goals and have something to work towards. I will do a little check in once a week on some goals. I would love to hear any of your goals that you have set for yourself. Small or large, drop them below in the comments!
