2015 has begun, everyone is coming up with ways to improve their lives, a new year a new me, the same thing as every year. But really, does a new year really mean that someone can change who they are? Sure I have new years resolutions, plans to move forward, but i’m not planning on changing myself on any profound level.
Currently I am a married, 24 year old student, mother of 4 fur babies. Tomorrow I will be a married 24 year old student mother of 4 fur babies. Three months from now it’ll be the same. There are a few things I want to improve on, of course so here they are my major yearly goals and smaller monthly goals. I’m keeping it simple, I don’t want to overwhelm myself all at once. I think that is why so many people fail at their new years resolutions, because they decide to change such large things like I wanna go from a size 16 to a 4 or I want to be completely debt free.
Smart Realistic Goals! that is now you make changes that matter. What are SMART goals?
want to lose weight I will be down to 110 +/- 5lbs by June 1st by increasing my cardio.
I want to read more –– I will read 30 books by the end of 2015, I will do this through reading nightly before bed as well as when I am waiting for appointments & such. (Comics & Graphic Novels Don’t Count)
I want to pay off my debt I will use a minimum of 10% of my income to pay off loans & credit cards. I will take out a consolidated loan to make it easier to pay off my debt and have it lowered by the end of the year.
I want to finish school– I will study nightly in order to graduate in November with at least a 3.7 GPA.
want to tone up– I will reduce my body fat– I will exercise more. In order to get down to 20% Body Fat I will attend 3 exercise classes a week as well as daily ab workouts. I will reduce my body fat to 20% by December 31st by attending 3 exercise classes a week, daily ab workouts & twice a week skating/swimming (depending on the month)
Blogging Goals– See 5FF from last week
Hope everyone has a great 2015.
