I took a trip down memory lane and looked back at my older posts, specifically my goals. I’ve been blogging forever since the days of Xanga in high school. I went back in time to 2010 when I first started this blog when I had an eating disorder. It’s painful to see how I wrote down so many crazy goals and wrote out my meal plans to a “T.”
I wrote my goals for the next year because they’re expected. Now I just want to delete them. But I won’t. I’m sharing them because these goals are nothing like the goals of 2010, 2011, or even 2012.
I wrote these goals because this is where I am in life. There are no weight loss goals here. The closest thing to it is “picking smarter snacks,” but that’s because I’ve been eating ice cream everyday since I bought a carton. 🙂
So here they are, the 2014 goals that aren’t that big of a deal:
Dress my age. Does anyone else have this problem? My work clothes are my mom’s clothes. Then I shop for clothes in the junior section because the misses or women’s sections are a
little lot older. This is a work in progress.
Take more time getting ready. I’m known to be ready in 5 minutes. I’m not 100% sure if I want to give this up yet since I find I look the same.
Fall in love. Yeah, that’s on my bucket list. It’s happening this year and I can feel it. 🙂
Read at least 1 book per month. I’ll work on a list and let you know, but it begins with the Divergent series. Might try to read the books my book club is reading though.
Save up for student teaching. Gah, I don’t wanna… The holidays and that $500 leak in my car made this difficult this month.
Get a better [summer] job. F the fair.
Go out in nature more. That means hiking once per month and taking walks or bike rides outside at least 2-3 times per week. I really have no excuse as our weather here is fantastic.
Be more social. 2013 was a big change from the other years in that I was social at all. This will continue. I even went to a couple of Meetup group events and would like to go to more. I’d also like to join something, like kickball.
Get enough rest. Ideally, 8 hours of sleep and yoga/walk instead of my afternoon naps. However, my 6 hours of sleep at night and afternoon naps were nice and completely acceptable during the fall/winter. I needed to recharge after work before working out.
Pick smarter snacks, like edamame, Quest bars, Greek yogurt, and do not buy things like “healthy” chips & nuts as much.
Go on vacation to… Asheville, Savannah, Seattle.
Take that Tspoons cooking class I bought a Groupon for awhile ago. Also, try a wine and canvas class.
How have your goals changed over the years?
