Goals

Back in January this year I made a few goals.

 

 

GOALS

One goal I had is I wanted to read 20 books this year. Now I know that may not sound like a lot to some people, but at the time I made this goal I was working A LOT of hours, and honestly didn’t have a lot of time. So I thought 20 books was a good place to start. Well I am happy to say that as of today I have read 26 books this year! So now I am upping my goal to 35 before the end of this year. Now 35 may sound like a lot, but I have got into a kick of reading short stories, most of these only take me a few hours to read so as long as I stay away from anything 500+ pages I should be good. 🙂 Wish me luck!

Another goal I made this year was to get into shape. This is a goal i have struggled with for the past few years. See my dad passed away when he was only 51 of a heart attack in his sleep. I wouldn’t say he was super unhealthy, but he had been a diabetic since he was 17 and diabetes run in his side of the family. He had type one diabetes, and was on insulin as soon as they diagnosed him.  I know that if I don’t take care of myself that is something I may have to deal with. So I have tried really hard this year to get into a workout routine, and stick with it. Sadly the last couple of weeks I’ve been a bit of a lazy butt, and haven’t done much. But as soon as I get over this head cold I am getting back to it. (I promise this isn’t an excuse, I just dont want to snot on my Wii while boxing. Or stop every 2 minutes to cough and blow my nose. haha) I have done pretty well with this goal, so far I’ve lost 9 pounds, and my clothes are fitting better. 🙂 Yay!

 

This year I also wanted to learn to sew well I am not the best at it yet, but I am making progress and I have 2 skirts, a scarf, and half a shirt to show for it. I would have my 3rd skirt finished, but I had a little mishap that I have to fix before I can go on. Hopefully I get that finished soon, cause I am running out of time to get my Halloween costume finished. Ekk! Thankfully I don’t have to do much, just make a skirt for myself and some ears. I can’t wait!

 

I also have a few goals this year that sadly I am not as close to finishing as I’d like to be. I want to get my craft room functioning I told a friend the other day I think my craft room is where half finished projects come to die, I am also SUPER SUPER lazy when it comes to cleaning up in here. I kinda take the no one but me goes in there so what does it matter approach to it. Well it has gotten to the point where I cannot finish anything cause I can’t find whatever it is I need to finish it. Ugh So I have made it a goal that before the end of the year I will go through EVERYTHING in my craft room and organize it so I can use it, or throw it away if I can’t, or maybe even give it away.

Every goal needs a plan. Step one of this plan is to get my desk cleaned off completely so that I have a place to go through stuff. I think on that note I am going to go get to work and find my desk! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! I actually had some time to spend with my husband this weekend, it was really nice. 🙂
