Every woman should know what she can or can’t accomplish in a day, month and year. Bearing that in mind, here is my list of goals/resolutions/to-dos for 2011, some to be completed in a day, others in a week or a month and some may be works in progress that take all year.
Read one fiction and one non-fiction book every month.
Eat more veggies. Get creative and try new things.
Stick to a two-drink limit if I even want to drink at all.
Downsize. Live simply. Donate things I don’t use (monthly) and don’t buy crap.
Lose 10 pounds before the fall weddings.
Complete 60 things total on my 101 list.
Climb the seven summits of Phoenix in seven days.
Earn $3000 side income, personal training, writing, whatever.
Build a $1290 wedding fund for bridesmaid expenses (yes, I realize NOW that it’s a stupid number, but it’s what my twisted math came up with). Contribute $50 a month + gifts.
Spend less time with social media and more time with society.
Write six short stories.
Write girl side of dating book and begin collaboration.
Contribute to a Roth IRA…and 401(k) if company restarts match program.
Complete my eight-month emergency fund and leave it untouched in my MMA.
Make and follow a budget each month (< $2000/month or $24000/year).
Make and follow a training schedule each month.
Honor my appointments with myself. Put myself first as often as I want.
Overpay on student loans (by more than $5, smart girl) to get below $11000 before the end of the year.
Pay off my CC each month, if I use it at all.
Hang out in Starbucks and Barnes & Noble and look approachable so as to be hit on.
Look presentable anytime I leave the house.
Don’t waste more than one date on a bad prospect. Future me says so.
Try a new dating site.
Leave the baggage in the past. Leave exes in the past. Look forward.
Say yes more. Say no more.
Go all in. Finish hard, finish strong – fitness, life, love, everything.
