Happy New Year!
If you celebrated last night, I hope you had a great time!
new year = new goals
2014 is going to be a big year for us, and while I’ve made goals for the year (see below), I realize that some of them may need to change according to where we’re at in life. Only time will tell :)
I divided my goals up according to category, in an attempt to touch on each major aspect of my health and well-being.
I also have more goals than listed here, but I can’t share everything on the blog ;)
My Goals for 2014:
- spiritual goal: Read the devotionals Jesus Calling by Sarah Young (each morning, plus journal along with it) and The Confident Woman by Joyce Meyer (each evening, plus write in my gratitude journal).
- health goal: Long story short, my goal here is to balance my hormones. They’re all sorts of out-of-whack. I keep saying I should update you all on this one, and I promise, when the time is right I will, but for now I’m just trying to be patient (yet proactive) about it – plus I need to work up the nerve to share!
- fitness goal: Here’s where I’m a little unsure about my goals (see above goal for reasoning), but my hope is to be running some decent mileage again in the near future. I hope to run (at least) 1 half marathon and 4 smaller races (10k, 5k, fun run, etc.).
financial goal: For the past couple of months, Jesse and I have been reading/listening to/learning from Dave Ramsey‘s advice on living a debt-free life. We’re currently reading his book The Total Money Makeover and following a strict/specific budget and long-term spending plan. We have student loan and car loan debt (plus house debt, of course), that we’re working hard to pay off. There’s a set amount that we’ve planned to pay off this year, but we *should* be, excluding the house, debt-free by the end of 2015!!
- reading goal: Read (at least) 14 books.
- career goal: The specifics of this goal are hard for me to “assign” right now, but here’s what I do have planned for the year: complete my work and graduate from IIN, obtain my certification from the AADP, launch my business, and work with (at least) 10 paying clients. Obtaining my personal training certification is also on my mind, but I’m not sure when that will come into fruition – we’ll just have to wait and see when the time is right for that!
- service goal: Be a part of (at least) 5 different volunteer opportunities.
Wishing you all a happy, healthy 2014, full of laughter and love!
I can’t wait to see what the year brings! :)
