End of Summer and Begining of Fall: New Goals!Posted: September 6, 2012
Medical-get his dentist appointment done. Fail. We discussed it and then life happened.
Car: So if we can get $50 into fund by the end of August after all is said in done, I’ll be happy.-Fail but mostly due to unforeseen expenses. I do have $40 in it so I’m close!
Efund: $350 would be great. –Pass. Exactly this amount.
Personal: rock Insanity and lose 3 pounds. –I lost 4 so yeah; I’m saying I passed this!
Last but not least, house fund: I’d love to get this to $150. –pass
I did pretty well for August I think. I try to come up with goals that are going to be a stretch to make as I feel if I make it too easy, I’ll “pass” but won’t feel great about it. And I don’t want to set goals that are too much of a stretch because I’ll “fail” and want to give up because it’s too hard. So, if it’s a monetary goal, I’ll look at what I have scheduled to go into that fund and will than add on a little bit more. Though honestly, right now, the monetary goals are stretching it with just being what I’ve “scheduled” to go there.
Medical-Get this fund to $85 and schedule him an appointment. (more doable now that our car isn’t acting up too much) The cleanings are free but he also needs contacts/glasses.
Car: $90. It should be doable but that car….yeah; with all its problems I am lucky if I can get to that.
Efund: I’m going to hope to get it to $400 but I think it’s more going to be only increasing by $10. Sadly.
House fund: I’d like to get this to $250. And yes, I’m putting this fund ahead of the efund but only because I really can’t stand to stay in this house much longer. I don’t want to pull from my efund if I can help it so the more I can bump this up, the less likely that will happen.
Personal: lose another 3 pounds. With Insanity month two coming up and my running? I think this is a good goal. I’m toning up nice!
I’d also like to get 1 blanket finished. I decided that everyone in my family would get the tied blankets from me. It’s personal and I’m not very crafty so should mean a lot!
