I finally reached my number one goal for this year by getting a new job a couple months ago. Since then, I have enjoyed my new found time and lower stress level by just relaxing and not really getting anything done.
A couple weeks ago I started getting really bored. I realized that I needed to start setting some goals so here are a few goals I came up with:
Lose Weight, Eat Healthier, and Exercise
Over the last few years I have slowly been gaining weight. I decided that I can’t keep gaining weight. Over the holidays I was eating a ton of junk food and it was really starting to show. Since the year began I have been on my new diet called the “Eat Less Bad Food Diet”. It is pretty self explanatory. It was working well for a while and I lost 10 lbs in about two months. However, I got lazy and slipped into eating some bad food I had been missing and gained 5 lbs back. About two weeks ago I started my Eat Less Bad Food Diet again and have lost 4 pounds so far!
I will be the first one to admit that I have never really actually exercised on a regular basis. I hate exercising, but know I need to find something I enjoy doing. For now I get in some exercise by walking my dog. I have decided to set a goal of walking her at least 3 times a week. I walked her 4 times this week so I passed!
Start a Blog
As you can see I have accomplished this goal! My next goal related to my blog is to post regularly. As you can see in the left sidebar I have posted a posting schedule. My goal is to post at least 3 times a week and I believe that goal is reasonable. I already accomplished this goal on my first week blogging!
Quit Being So Lazy!
Now that I finally have some free time at home I have been rather lazy. I haven’t been doing the little chores around the house and absolutely dread doing them when in reality most of them only take 5 minutes. My goal is to get more done around the house and I have been doing better at this.

Michelle at Making Sense of Cents wrote about buying too much house. I agree that many people do this. I only bought a 2 bedroom and we rarely even go into the second bedroom!
Derek at Life and My Finances wrote about how getting out of debt does not make your rich. He makes the important point that you have to accumulate assets after you get out of debt to continue increasing your net worth.
That is it for this week!
