BUT, before that...
My December goals were as follows:
1. Finish reading the New Testament with Daniel. -- WE DID IT! We're going to start on the full Bible for 2015.
2. Drink 80 oz. of water daily. -- Yeah, that's a fail.
3. Hit 100 miles on Nike run. -- I DID IT! I have no idea HOW I did it. But I DID it!
4. Get my budget/spending in order and get out of debt. -- Getting out of debt is going to take a lot longer, but I've got my budget figured out and we're taking great steps towards being out of debt. More to come.
5. Complete the 30 day fitness challenges -- I did 2 days. We don't talk about it.
So, back to the present.
I've decided that I want each of my monthly goals to fit into my larger "word" of 2015 -- intentional.
In order to make this happen, I've decided on 5 categories -
Physical Health/Weight Loss
Each month time will also tie into one of these categories.
Another thing Meghan and I are doing is a "No _____________ Month" each month and tying it in.
mental health & recovery// be open and honest at my initial appointment for therapy.
I have my first appointment Friday the 2nd and if I want results, I'm going to need to be open and I'm going to need to be honest.
physical health & weight loss// No fast food. Pretty self explanatory. For the month of January, I will not be eating fast food. Hoping that will jump start my weight loss, which is officially part of my overall physical health because I let it get out of control.
relationships// send my grandma a personalized birthday card in the mail. This is where "time" comes into play. I will take the time to intentionally make my grandmother a card for her birthday, as well as to mail it. I'll also call her on her birthday. My grandma is one of my biggest supporters and it's time I show her how important she is.
faith// challenge myself to learn something during each section of my church's spiritual formation. Daniel and I joined a small group for the next 7 weeks that is going to be going through a "spiritual formation" workbook. I want to challenge myself to go out of my comfort zone if needed and learn something new in each "section" or chapter.
money// connect my investment account to my checking account so I can make deposits. Ideally my goal is to deposit $25 a month back into my investment account. For now, baby steps, let's set this up.
