2020 Goals

December 31st, 2019 at 08:32 pm

Here are my goals for 2020. I found a Google template which I used to break the goals down further, and to be able to track them on my phone. There's two sheets - 1 with the goals, and one for tracking my chore cards (part of one of my goals.)

For some of these goals I actually chose a number that is 40-50% less than what I'd really like to achieve. However, in an effort to actually ACHIEVE these goals, I made them for a lower amount.

Here is a link to my goals spreadsheet -


1. Win my HealthyWage bet (Approx. 3.5lbs/mo) (Ends Sept 22.)
2. Eat healthier -
a-Reduce dairy intake to 2x a week and limited amounts.
b- Reduce processed food products to 2x a month i.e. Amy’s or store bought veggie products.)
c - Reduce junkfood intake to only stuff others buy. IOW - no money spent on chocolate or other overly junky food products.
3. Run for 30 continuous minutes at a 17 mpm pace.
4. Win 5 Stepbets.
5. Win 5 RunBets.
6. Do a weight routine 25 times.
Personal Enrichment:
7. Fund Ireland Trip by April. Go on trip in May.
8. Read 25 books - at least 5 non-fiction.
9. Memorize two complete songs on the piano from the simplified Hymn book.
10. Complete Lead Sheet 1 and Classical 1 in Simply Piano app, as well as at least 2 stars on all songs up to those levels.
11. Complete three classes with an A or better.
Home / Financial:
12. Complete 3 Chore Cards each week.
13. Scoop the litter boxes 150 times.
14. Digitize 250 slides and upload to FB group.
15. Finish basic financial info backup system for DH - including a binder putting all important documents in one place. (Possibly use The Big Book of Everything as a guideline.)
16. Clean out - sort, shred, file, one file drawers worth of stuff in home office.
17. Dishes - Go to bed with an empty sink, or a dishwasher full of dirty dishes being washed, AND no dirty dishes or silverware anywhere upstairs but the kitchen - 120 times.
18. Write 3 real letters - handwritten, not email.
19. Make the office into a “homey” space - i.e. look like someone who knows about homemaking lives here. (i.e. purchase and hang artwork or other decorations, clean off, sort, organize bookshelves so they look neat and organized, keep desk clear of stuff, maybe replace dad’s 13+ year old office chair, make the makeshift monitor stand look less makeshift …)
20. Make 10 real recipes I have not made before.

    These are good goals. I'm glad you broke them down and have more than just something general like "more steps."

    I like the idea of chore cards.

  2. Creditcardfree Says:

    Impressive goals! We run our dishwasher every night regardless of how full it is. They are very energy efficient. DH unloads it every morning.

    I really like that you have such a detailed plan to reach your goals! The chore cards are an interesting idea. Happy New Year!

    Thanks Rob, I was trying to follow the SMART goal method for the most part - simple, measurable, ....can't remember the rest. Smile
    CCF - We'd have lots of mostly empty loads if I did that. Big Grin

    Wink - Thanks! I wanted something to track both WHAT I did, and WHEN I did it.

    I can't eat dairy or soy due to allergies, and so I also can't eat chocolate. I get my chocolate fix by putting a teaspoon of Hershey's cocoa in my smoothie. It has no sugar or anything else in it.

    @Crazyliblady - Oof! Can’t eat chocolate?? I can’t imagine that ... though I’d be tons healthier. I have a cacao powder I use when I want that chocolate flavor (and am managing to abstain from junk food...) I have a brand new bag of it hidden in one of my cupboards... hopefully I’ll find it after completing my chore card for cleaning out and organizing the cupboard over the fridge (which I think is where it is at.)
