January Goals

For 2015, I plan to write a monthly post that lists my goals for the month and also recaps progress on past month's goals.  I got the idea from Blue-Eyed Bride who did this last year.  I think this will be a fun way to keep myself accountable for things I want to focus on.  Each month as I post new goals I will also report back on how I did the previous month. 

Sadly, aside from this current weekend {that has been spent at home sick...all three of us} we have something planned for every weekend in January already!  It's all fun stuff so don't feel too bad for me, but I usually like to keep our weekends somewhat open since this is our only time to decompress from the work week.  We have birthday parties, meetings, baby showers and even an out of town wedding that Jack is in!

With all that said, my goal list might be a little lofty, but I will give myself some grace if not everything gets done. 

My January Goals:
  • Read one book
  • Spending freeze on buying clothes for myself
  • Try one new recipe
  •  Blog a minimum of twice per week
  •  Get at least 8 hours of sleep every night
  •  Drink more water on a daily basis
  • Home Improvements:
    • Dress up our front door
    • Dress up our living room/mantle
    • Install bottom gate for stairs and improve existing top gate
    • Finish Jack's "Campsite" Playroom
The hardest goal listed will probably be the 8 hours of sleep each night since I am a major night owl and use this time for reading, watching TV, blogging, cleaning and meal planning, but I need to listen to my body more this year and one thing I know about my body is that it requires more sleep than I've been getting this past year.  Likely why I got sick recently.

Are you setting goals for yourself this month or year?  Would love to hear yours too! 


  1. Ahhh I am such a night owl too! Love this idea of doing monthly goals!!! I set a few small goals for the year but picked a theme of "balance".

    1. Fellow night owls unite! Love the theme of balance. That is a great mantra for the year!

  2. I'm with ya on the sleep thing & spending freeze! In fact, I just put all my credit cards away out of reach - no.more.plaid ;)

    1. No more plaid. No more plaid. We can do it! Spending freeze now so we can buy a few new spring lovelies in a few months.

  3. Yeah, getting enough sleep is hard, especially when the evening hours are often my "me" hours, the only time of day I get to do just what I want after the kiddos go to bed :) For January, I'm doing a 30 day fitness challenge, so completing that is a big one, and just keeping better track of things. I'm also hoping to get my blog going again, and read more blogs.

    1. Good luck with your 30 day fitness challenge!!!
