It’s the first week of 2016 and I am pretty much ready to tackle whatever comes my way. I am so excited for this month and just this year in general and I can’t wait for all the amazing memories to come. Now onto my January goals!
Recap of December Goals:
- Pick my wedding photographer and videographer // Semi success! I haven’t picked a videographer just yet but I have been in contact with a few trying to figure out rates and whatnot so that’s at least progress. I do have my photographer for the wedding picked out though!
- Get some blogging goals in place for 2016 // Complete. I actually blogged about them here and I am completely stoked to take on all my blogging goals this year.
- Read at least one book // Success! I was actually able to read two books during December so that was exciting.
- Go to the gym at least once a week // I went to the gym once a week for most of December but then kind of fell off the wagon during the holidays. Time to get back to it in January.
- Finish tweaking my blog posts and making them all SEO-friendly // Complete! I have finally finished updating all of my post and making them SEO friendly. Hopefully this helps my site in the long term.
I’d give myself a 4.5/5 since two goals were semi complete which isn’t half bad considering that it was the holidays.
- Finalize wedding invite list and get addresses so we can send out our save the dates // This is a pretty pressing one. I have my photo and design for the save the date picked out but I can’t order them until I know the exact numbers. We’re planning on sending out the save the dates sometime in February so knocking this out during January would be ideal.
- Workout twice per week // I pretty much succeeded once a week so now it’s time to try for twice per week. I hope I can wake up early and knock out a workout at least once a week and then go to the gym once or twice on the weekend.
- Read two books // Because I was able to read 2 books last month, I want to strive to do that again this month. I am currently reading Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn and I am really enjoying it so far. Not sure what my second book will be since I have a plethora of books to choose from.
- Don’t procrastinate on my coursework // The other day I wrote a paper in less than a day because I procrastinated and I don’t want that to become habitual so I vow to be on top of my coursework this month even though it’s been a bit of a struggle lately.
- Save money // After the crazy spending that happened during in the month of December, I plan on saving as much as my paychecks as possible.
