As I scrolled through my Facebook Feed this morning, I came across a post that I found inspiring. Erin, from Blue Eyed Bride, wrote a post about her July Goals. As I read it, I kept thinking how fantastic of an idea this was and I was inspired to begin doing the same. I am always setting goals for myself and making a ton of “to do” lists but sharing them gives you an accountability I really like. Plus, I think the most important tasks can get lost in all of my list making. Because if I’m being honest, I love making lists. Probably a little too much!
So here are my top 5 Goals for July:
Create the “Get Organized” Printable Collection for Sweet Mady: This has been a collection I have been wanting to design for some time now. I love to be organized and as I mentioned, I love lists. Every time I sit down to start this, I get overwhelmed and push it to the side. This month, I am going to move past that fear.
Read 2 Books: As silly as that sounds to actually have reading as a goal, I feel like if I don’t write it down, I will forget about it. I love to read. However, once I get out of the routine of reading at night, it’s hard for me to jump back in. My first book choice is A Fault in our Stars. Who has read it? Did you love it?
Workout 4x’s a week: I am headed in the right direction and am making exercising a priority. Having children, you often put yourself last. I’ve realized that isnt’ always the best thing for you. I have a couple races coming up and I want to be a healthy role model for my children.
Get Madelyn signed up for a 5K: She really wants to do this and I keep putting it off. I have found a couple I think she will love and it would be so fun to do together. I just need to put it on the calendar and get us signed up!
Paint our Bedroom: A couple months ago we redecorated our bedroom. As much as we love what we have done, the paint color does not look great with the new furniture we picked out. We know we want to paint it, but haven’t sat down to actually pick out a color. This month, not only are we picking out a color, but we are getting it painted!
It feels good to write these goals down and give myself a focus. Next month I will let you know how I did on these goals and what my goals for August will be. Again, thanks so much to Erin for inspiring me to do this. If you have not visited her blog, Blue Eyed Bride, please stop by and do so!
