2017 Goals

It’s like the saying goes “write it down and then make it happen.” I’m more of a visual person, so I’ll print this out and hang up near my computer and on the fridge which will hopefully keep me on track.

My (personal) goals for 2017….

Purchase a second car for the hubster, so that I can use the van.

Start a meet-up group. I had quite a few members on my previous group but couldn’t keep it up due to our car situation.

Apply for a part time job related to what I’m in college for. I recently learned that I could work as a “sitter” for kids at a behavioral center.

Write and blog more (I so miss writing outside of college)

Start exercising/becoming active (applies to the hubster too)

Eat healthier (applies to the hubster too)

Time

It has become (painfully) aware to me that I’m not using my time effectively. Every day I lose about 4 – 5 hours because I’m sleeping. It’s a combination of my medical issues and going to bed late. By the time I wake up (around noon and as late as 2 p.m.) half the day is already gone.

So what does one need to do to change this? Plan!

I will be printing this out to place on fridge

Monday – Friday

  • Make sure to eat breakfast when I fix the hubster his.
  • Do whatever chores need to be done.
  • Zumba on the Xbox
  • Check emails and social media. Respond if necessary.
  • Snack
  • Spend 1 – 2 hours on classwork.
  • Shower
  • Eat lunch
  • Take nap if feeling tired and not feel guilty about it
  • Spend time blogging, working on organization (not giving up on this) reading or anything “fun” that I enjoy doing.
  • Start dinner around 5 p.m, so we can eat between 6 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.
  • Watch an episode or 2 of Lost.  Will catch up with Lost in our bedroom on weekends that we have kids 
  • Head to gym around 7:30 p.m. Hoping to do at least 4 times a week
  • Shower after getting home around 8 p.m or shower at gym.
  • Make sure house is tidy before bed
  • Climb into bed to: read, watch a movie or play a board game with the hubster
  • Hoping to be asleep around 10 p.m.

Back To School

college

I’ve been trying to complete my degree, well since forever. There has been one thing after another that would force me to take a leave of absence. Those would eventually run out and I’d  end up having to withdraw. Last year it was due to complications after having my hysterectomy.

I decided to re-enroll because at this point in time, I have the opportunity to really focus on my studies. I know I cant predict  when something may happen but it’s a bridge I will cross once I get to it.  Continue reading “Back To School”

It’s All Starting To Come Together

I’ve been doing some major research and planning so that I’m not thrown for too much of a loop. I have to be organized in some way and having a binder helps. Especially since I will be utilizing public transportation which will limit the amount I carry in my backpack. I’m sure the first few weeks days  (of my walking from the bus stop to the office) will be rough and tough cause I haven’t exercised in well over a month….*sigh*

Aside from all things related to my organization, I also wanted to start having a meet-up, maybe once a month that would include women that I personally know that have been through it – emotionally, spiritually, physically, etc. Maybe if this takes off, it will go beyond this initial stage with more women joining in. That would be totally awesome. I know it can be difficult when you have a bunch of women together but I’m hoping to form a sisterhood that focuses on empowering and encouraging each other. There will be no tolerance for drama and gossip. If disagreements arise, I would hope that we’re all mature enough to handle them as an adult and remember that not everyone will always agree. I’m all for constructive criticism but blatant disrespect, won’t be tolerated either.

Luckily my office has a really nice, large meeting room and I’ve contacted the person that I need to, to set aside a date for next month to hold my 1st meet-up. Only those who receive an invite will be allowed to come as I want this to be a safe place to meet-up as well.

Things are starting to fall into place and I’m pretty happy about that….
