2016 Goals

I was trying to decide if I should start a new blog or just revive this one.  I’m still doing the same kinds of things, so I thought it would be easier just to stick with this one.

Since I last posted, I did complete that marathon in 2014.  I was slow, but I got the finishers medal!

The kids are bigger, as you’d expect.

I’m still trying to budget and save money.  Still learning self-discipline.  Still trying to improve.

It’s a new year, so I’m energized to recommit to this blog.  I’m just going to write about whatever comes to me.  Nothing earth-shattering, but hopefully something for me to look back upon.  I hope to see that I am improving with various aspects of my life.

I’m putting my goals in writing and committing to improving myself this year.

So, here they are:

  1.  Workout 3x per week and participate in a 5k and a 10k race.  Not sure if I will walk, run, or a combination, I am just committing to finishing the races.
  2.   Read something religious each and every night before sleeping.
  3.   Attend Tuesday Mass when available.
  4. Update Mint.com 5x per week.  I am really wanting to get my spending under control, so I need to categorize each purchase to see where the money is going.
  5.  Follow the written budget each and every month.  I totally stink at this, but I really need to do it so that we can keep spending under control.
  6. Follow the Trim Healthy Mama diet and get to my goal weight.  I need to lose 12 pounds achieve this goal.

These are what I want to focus on this year.  How about you, any goals that you are planning on tackling this year?
