2010 Goals revisited...

January 1...I set the following goals for myself. Now that 2010 is almost to a close it is time for me to take a look and see how I did. (and to get an idea of what my goals for 2011 should be!)


1. Lose 30 pounds/ get down to 199.--didn't happen. I did lose some weight, but I am only down to 215.

2. Financial goals:

- Pay off ambulance bill--DONE!

- Pay off anethisiologist bill---DONE!!!

- Pay off Sears card--DONE!!!!

- add $500 or more to savings--didn't happen since we paid off the above. But we still have close to our $1000 emergency fund.

3. Declutter as much as possible--my stuff and basement---by selling, donating, or throwing away.--we threw out a TON of stuff when we moved over the summer. We also donated a TON of stuff after we moved. It felt so liberating.

-sell $500 worth of stuff by Dec. 31, 2010---we sold a few things but definitely not $500 worth.

4. Write on blog at least once a week---didn't happen, but am finally getting into a rhythm I think.

5. Take family trip that the kids would enjoy (can be a weekend trip)---we took the kids to Indianapolis. It was a fun weekend!

6. Find a way to bring in extra income--got a part time job at St. Vincent's.

7. Don't snap at Bill or Rebecca---working on this

8. Make decisions with confidence---trying to do this.

9. Find a church and join---We did this in November 2010. We joined the Catholic Church here, and had the kids baptized Dec. 12.

10. Have 200 no-spend days in 2010---I really don't know. I know that we did not do this.

11. Make a menu for each week--did this on and off

12. Exercise at least 3 times a week.--not

13. Buy NO junk food at all this year.---this did NOT happen at all.

Overall there was some positives and some negatives. I am okay with that. I am proud of the fact that we paid off the bills. Those were big weights on our shoulders and they are gone. We even had other medical bills that we had to pay as well this year.

Now I have to look forward to 2011 and evaluate what I need to do and how to get where I am going and how I can live better one day at a time.

How did you do with your 2010 goals??

    My main goal was to start writing and I have. :) I started a blog and have sent out a few submissions for children's books.
