I’m taking the plunge, I’m going to start sharing monthly goals on the blog. I’ve mentioned before how I feel like putting things on here makes me feel more accountable and it makes ideas more concrete. Since I’m in a bit of a transition, and don’t have a lot of structure to my days, I feel this will be really good for me. Time continues to be a tricky lady – my days seem to fly by even more now. When working 8-5 sometimes I could swear it was 3pm and it would only be 11, but now it’s 8am and I’m saying goodbye to P, and in a blink it’s already 3 and I’m wondering what I managed to get done. It will be good to look back at what I get done with all my “free” time.
My big picture goals during my time off are:
Get into a fitness routine
I really want to make exercise a more focused part of my daily life. I’m not sure I will ever be one of those super into fitness people. I think I like drinking and eating too much for all that jazz, but I can do better. P and I are healthy, and we are lucky for that. We need to make sure we are doing everything we can to keep it that way. From what I hear exercise is an important part of that. Are we sure it’s not a ploy by the yoga pant industry? No, oh, ok, just checking 😉
Develop new skills
I’m working on what direction I want to go in job-wise. I’m still trying to figure it all out, but I think exploring new skills is a good start.
Grow this blog
I really want to put myself back into this space. I have a whole list of things I want to do with the blog and now is the time to make that happen.
This month I want to:
- Do yoga or run/bike at least 3 times a week
- Complete 5 design/code Skillshare classes
- Take at least one photography class
- Finish website redesign
I’m linking-up with Melyssa at the Nectar Collective to share my monthly goals
I’m also joining in the Choose Your Own Adventure link-up. The October theme is food…I can’t pass up a food theme 🙂
My food related goals are:
- Try making chia seed pudding, this is something I’ve been wanting to try for ages
- Make fresh pasta
- Make something with pumpkin (to at least acknowledge the season)
I’m keeping my food list short, mainly because my real goal is to try as many new restaurants as I can 🙂 Check out my Discovering San Diego posts where I let you in on all my new adventures!
