    Mini Goals for January

    Well yesterday, I posted about my big plans for this year so now I am going to do a mini monthly goal setting post.

    1. On the weight loss front I want to
        A. Exercise 2x a week for 20 minutes each time. - considering I am starting from scratching and have been so sick, I didn't want to make it more
        B. Lose 10 lbs- that works out to about a third of a lb a day. But I figure when you first start you end up losing water weight.

    2. Get closer to God-
        A. Attend Church every Sunday- I am trying to find a new church I like and feel like is the place God wants me to be so it might be a different church each week.
       B. Memorize 2 new verses this month.

    3. Increase income -
        A. I am going to read the want ads daily to see whats available.

    4. Fix up the trailer-
        A. Fix up the bathroom. We just replaced the floor so now we need to put down tile and while I am at it I may as well redo the whole room.

    5. Date-
        A. I have no clue where to really start with this one, so I am going to say wear make up every time I leave the house. I feel better about myself when I am wearing some make up.
        B. Talk to more people. - I am very shy around new people and so I sometimes come off as snobbish when really I just don't know what to say. I am going to work on being more friendly and talking to more people (men and women).

    Happy New Years

    I just love when a new year rolls around. It is just full of such promise and hope. I am one of those people who makes resolutions or as I call them goals. We write out our goals and pack them away with our Christmas decorations so we can read them when we decorate at the end of the year to see how well we did.  Here are my goals for the new year.

    Goals for 2014

    1. Lose weight- sad to say this is always on my list. Obviously I have yet to achieve this one. But I am believing 2014 will be the year.  I want to lose 100 lbs this year.
    2. Grow closer to God- its always my goal for each day to become more Christ-like. I want to spend some time working on this one.
    3. Increase my income- I love my job but I only work 20 hours a week. That just isn't enough money so I am going to try to improve on this. Maybe another part time job since I like my job so much.
    4. Fix up the trailer or find something better- Honestly the trailer is in such bad shape that I would prefer to find something else and just move. It feels like for everything we do that 5 more things crop up.
    5. Date- I still am not sure where I am at emotionally but I am tired of staying home and being alone so I need to work on this one.
    There you have it folks, the 5 goals for this year. I am hoping to work on each one monthly.   I plan to do a post at the beginning of each month with mini goals related to these goals and each month I will comment on how the previous month went.
