5 Goals for 2015 & Repeats from 2014!12/22/2014
Last year around this time I posted my Five Personal Goals for 2014. Well as crazy as it seems, 2014 has come and gone (almost). We are in the final weeks of the year and as I reflect it’s been a really great one. There have been ups and downs but there’s been so much to be grateful for. I wanted to make this post to share what goals from 2014 I accomplished and what’s ahead (hopefully) for 2015!
My first goal of 2014 was a Financial Goal. This one was not completed. I’ll be honest and say that I started off strong. I got to about day 20 before I couldn’t keep track of what day it was anymore and got all confused. And as is life with a family the money went to something useful I’m sure, like a car tire or something. Now saving money is still my financial goal for 2015, I’m just going to try a different strategy. I found something similar to my 2014 post but it’s monthly instead of daily. I’m hoping that it will be a lot easier to track and to be honest it works out to be the same amount of money saved over the year which is A-OKAY with me!
My third goal was a Physical Fitness one. This is one that I feel like I met in the middle. While my ultimate goal was to do a 5K, I failed in that area. However, with getting pregnant in February of this past year I took really good care of myself. Only gaining ten pounds during my pregnancy (where I’ve previously gained A LOT more), I was very proud of myself. I made better food choices and drank a ton more water than previous years probably. The best part about doing that while I was pregnant is that I’m now back to where I was pound wise (if not better) than I was when I got pregnant. This means that in 2015 I can really focus on getting my body back now that there won’t be any more babies.
Finally, my Selfish Goal. This goal was only going to work out if the previous Financial Goal had been met. But I like to think that I met this is some form. Throughout the year I took the time to buy things for me. Whether it was makeup, clothes or spa time. Now it definitely wasn’t any luxury purchases but maybe 2015 can make up for that.
All in all I think all of these goals are going to stay the same for 2015. But the biggest goal I have is just to be the best mom and wife I can possibly be. While I know I’m a great mom and wife, I know that I can and have been distracted from my husband and toddlers through my pregnancy and now having a newborn at home. Since everyone is finally adjusted to our new family of five, I want to focus on giving them all of me that I can. Enrolling the girls in some sort of activity like dance or gymnastics, raise a little boy with dope fashion sense and devote my time and energy to positively encouraging my husband (maybe even take a dance class or two with him!).
What are your goals for 2015? Did you succeed or fail at your goals for 2014? Are you going to be retrying any of them again like I am? I’d love to hear your stories!
