What things can you do right now?

 I can get overwhelmed when I think about my goals and how much WORK it is to get there. Sometimes it seems so daunting and I don't know where to start, if you can relate to this, join me and see if this helps you, no matter what your goals are! Taking baby steps to make it to the big steps!

Things I can do RIGHT now to move me towards my January goals!
Making time for myself
Schedule alone time! It's easy to say and put off. I am adding it to my planner. Just 1 thing so far

And I want to tell you how much I LOVE these pens! So smooth and fine!
You can find them HERE.

Diet Bet, staying hydrated, eating well
I am using MyFitnessPal, my water trackers in my planner, so cute right?


Meal planning is really what saves me. I put my dinner in and do breakfast and lunch around that to make it fit my goals.

Financial Goals, not eating out
Meal planning, and using my planner as best I can to thaw/prep in the morning! Set an alarm on my phone to prep dinner. Different times each day, we have a insane schedule in the evenings right now!


Kid Dates
Similar to making time for ME, making time for us, planning and putting it in the planner ahead of time (and fitting it in the not eating out budget) We won't be doing anything extravagant this month, but we will be using up some old expired groupons and gift cards for fancy coco dates.

House-Finish sanding cabinets, Organize Plan
 I started keeping the sander IN the house as motivation. And my weekly organizing plan handy!
Sticking to my Weekly Cleaning so I still have FRIDAY free to get the organizing done!

January Goals

 Already 3 days in and I feel behind! But I am starting with small steps, little chunks of the big goals!

Self~ MAKE TIME for myself, twice, even if it's something small like a trip to the gym

 Health~ I joined a diet bet, nothing like the dread of losing money to motivate ya, right? Especially when it's ALL on me, 100% me.  Little parts of this are staying hydrated and being aware of my food choices. I use something like these to track my water!

Financial~Eek, this is my least favorite to jump right in. So January I am taking it a bit easy, my only goals are to not eat out (besides what is planned), update all our debts/accounts and make a plan for the year. 

Relationships~ Take each kiddo out once and one for hubby and I. NO PHONE (besides pictures)
If you struggle with phone time, the app InTheMoment

House~Finish sanding kitchen cabinets, finish the last door molding and 1 last floor board piece! 
Stick to my Organizing Plan!

2017 Goals/Resolutions

Like the rest of 2016, I am behind! I love the idea of fresh starts and new possibilities! I like to choose a WORD OF THE YEAR and make goals for different areas of our lives. I haven't done anything!

Today is the 31st so I figured I better get with it!


I decided on the word WILD   I love the description

uncultivated or growing freely without human intervention.


It just really speaks to me, not letting others comments/opinions intervene with my life.



Self Goals: Take chances, have more faith in myself, remember that not everyone who shares their opinions has my best interest in mind.

Health Goals: Make time for some kind of exercise because I love it.  Continue to find ways to get good nourishment into our picky kids. Manage the health issues I've been dealing with more efficiently

Financial: Make Dave Ramsey proud 😆

Relationships: More dates and less helicoptering

House: So many!! Slow and steady, budget fitting projects! Keep purging unnecessary things, keep working on the best ways to make life run smooth! 

We usually take our big goals and make monthly goals in little bite size chunks! January goals coming soon 👍🏻

December Goals!

Goodness has it been a while since I have written down some of our goals, or shared them. November was all about getting doors and door molding up (just 1 more door molding to go!) It felt good to have something constant to work on! There are things I can't do solo or don't know how to do so I had 2 Goals in November, 1 was renovation based the other was more just stuff for me to deal with.  Last month it was purging, my favorite group on Facebook (join us!!)  did a challenge for the month and it was so inspiring! I could actually go for it another month!

December is all about the kitchen when it comes to renovating 😳 I am scared and nervous and indecisive! We've got to pick a cabinet color once we get the cabinets sanded! Can't do anything until we get the sink in, I'm scared of that! And we also need to decide on what our breakfast bar part is going to look like, it used to have a pantry on top (weird) and now it's just plywood hanging out and I don't know what to do! Need to find a faucet! Leaning towards this one!   All of this while we prep for Christmas and enjoy the season!

Here is where we stand right now.. sawdust all over from the little sanding I have been able to do.


The non renovation goals I have for our house is meal planning for January! I don't think I will get much detailed planning going for December and I want to make sure we get January off on a good note!

This book is on my wish list for meal prep! And this might have to be added to my daily use!
