2018 Goals

December 30th, 2017 at 02:58 pm

So I've been thinking about goals for the coming year. I want to try to keep them fairly simple so I may actually manage to do them.


Big Goal: Lose 5% of current weight

(I lost 10% in 2017 and have managed to keep it off since May.)

Plan - Average 35k steps per week.
Minimal use of processed foods.
Water from the tap, plant milk, and tea only.
Complete the Daily Dozen at least 90% 5+ days a week. (Have a check off list on my fridge)


Big Goal 1: Fully fund both ROTH's - $12k

Big Goal 2: Reduce Grocery Spending - keep personal average to $160/month or less. (not including DH's food) *Check sidebar for explanation*

Big Goal 3: Increase EF by $3k


Big Goal 1: Complete at least 3 tasks daily before vegging at computer

Big Goal 2: Get the office organized with functional files. Put together the bookcases. Keep it that way.

Big Goal 3: Read 52 physical books.

I am not planning on doing the uber frugal challenge, however, I do want to be more transparent with my spending. I think I've gotten lax on being mindful.

So, I am going to attempt to post my spending a few days a week here - starting January 1.

    I like your goals. I feel like I have so many ideas on things I'd like to work on, but I know that too many goals can be overwhelming. Need to narrow mine down. I'm back to looking at losing weight again this year. I didn't make it as much as a priority as last year, although I did eat healthier foods overall. I guess I'll see you over at MFP! Smile

    Your goals inspired me to actually post a health goal. I guess I should head back over to MFP too! And 52 books? I'd love to do that!

    Thanks all!

    CCF - There were a lot of other things I thought of too, but I knew if I made too big a list it would never happen.

    I'm going to be writing these out on notecards and post in several places around the house to keep them in front of me. Maybe keep an updated grocery total on our chalkboard ...

    Amber - Thanks. I've been frustrated because I've made no progress since April/May ... but at least I've mostly maintained.

    Scottish Girl - I love to read, but have found that most of my reading time has been online. I miss reading actual books ...so hence, my goal. Smile
