2015 Goals

January 3rd, 2015 at 06:56 am

Though I'm not too successful at following through on resolutions, I think it's a good idea to have some general goals to bring some focus into your life.

I've already mentioned that I want to raise my net worth by $10K. I raised it $25K last year, but I gave myself a big jump in my condo value, when a comparable unit sold for $17K more than I paid myself. So the actual rise was more like $8K. I think doing $10K this year is within my reach.

I am not setting any weight-loss goals, other than these two: I will track my calories/exercise daily in MyFitnessPal, and my eventual aim will be to be in a size 12 by the end of the year. I'm a 14 now, but topping the charts, if you know what I mean.

Personally, I want to stop worrying about what others think/feel about me. I can get myself quite depressed when I feel like I am not loved or appreciated enough. I pledge to concentrate instead on being a good person -- someone I like myself -- and let the chips fall where they may.

I think those three areas are enough to keep me busy!

I had a very quiet day at home yesterday. I did not leave the house, so it was a no-spend day.

Today I have to get out and do things. I need to start shopping for the mattress, I need to stop at the jewelers to get a battery replaced, I need to go to the post office, and I also want to see the movie "Wild."

I'm planning to make a turkey casserole today, too. I parboiled a bunch of potatoes for the brunch, but didn't use them all so I'm going to slice them and layer with turkey, top with white sauce, bake, and add cheese topping near the end of the baking cycle. I think it will be good! I also have to use up some baby spinach, so a salad is in my near future!

I've started keeping grocery lists on the "Out of Milk" app on my phone. My plan was to go shop when it got to ten items. But if I do that, I will shop too often! My list is at 13 now, and I just shopped on New Year's eve. So, I will continue to keep the list, but try to keep the shopping trip to once a week, and make some hard decisions about what makes the cut.

I guess that's it for today!

    I have been using a grocery shopping app for a couple of years now, it's great! I only shop once a week and sometimes (like yesterday) have to decide what makes the cut (eggs, vinegar & peanut butter got pushed over to next week).

    Your personal goal sounds like a good one. The only person you should really satisfy (other than God if you are a believer) is yourself. You'll never make everyone else happy about who you are / what your beliefs are / how you do things, etc.

    CB, I can't imagine you would ever worry about what anyone thinks of you...you seem like a lovely person with wonderful family and friends that love you! I try my very best to be the best person I can every day, and if someone doesn't like me, that's ok, I don't let it bother me! I wish you lived near me, it would be great to have you as a friend!

    Oh, thank you, Bluebird! I think, because I have had a lot of critical people in my life, I am overly sensitive to real or implied (or even imagined) criticism. That's what I'm really trying to work on.

    Laura, your statement is very true; I just have trouble getting to that level of confidence!
