Goals for 2016

2:35 PM

It's only in the last couple of years that I have listed goals for the new year rather than cheesy resolutions like lose weight, be nice, etc. 

For 2016 I would of course like to lose weight and be nice to everyone but that just might not be possible.  I'll be as nice as I can (sometimes the general public is annoying) and weight isn't as important as being healthy.  

* I am going to set doable financial goals for 2016.   And I am going to blog about it.  You will be my accountability people!  For January my goal is to pay off two past due medical debts.  Those debts are close to $500.  

* I said for 2015 I was going to learn a foreign language.  I downloaded the Duolingo App onto my iphone and ipad.  While we (Corrine & I) didn't learn a whole new language, it has become a game for us to play together.  We will continue to play both Spanish and German in 2016.

* I am going to take more time for myself.  And I don't mean time to knit as time for myself.   I mean time in addition to knitting.  I downloaded an app called Headspace.  It's a meditation app.  I will take 10 minutes a day and do one mediation.  

* I will continue with Plexus.  I will try to work the business side of it to my best ability.  But I will continue to focus on my own health journey through Plexus.  

* I am going to finish all of my current on the needle projects.  I would like to start & finish all of the projects that I currently have yarn for.  I will not buy yarn to start a project this year (unless I need it to finish a project).  

* I would also like to run again.  I am going to sign up for the Bolder Boulder 10K race.  I will lose the competitiveness with myself time wise and accept that I will not run the BB in under an hour.  I will run for fun. 

I think that is a doable list for 2016.  I'll keep you posted.
