2014 Goals

I love setting goals. I don’t always follow through with them forever, but I try to work on them for as long as I can. I’m still figuring out what I want to work on this year, but here’s what I have right now:

  1. Lose 20 pounds
  2. Quit nagging and speak in a nice tone
  3. Organize my Apartment
  4. Stick to our budget
  5. Give more affection

Lose 20 pounds

My goal is to lose 1.5 lbs each week, so hopefully I achieve this goal in 14 weeks. Or 3 months. Right in time for summer. It seems kind of quickly when I see 20 lbs in 3 months. But I am going to use the MyFitnessPal app where I track everything I eat and I have faith I can make it!

Quit Nagging and Speak in a Nice Tone

Is this dumb? I just think I nag T.J. too much. He’s a grown man and knows how to live his life. He doesn’t need me to remind him to do things all the time or overwhelm him with my worries. I also want to speak in a nice tone to my family. These two goals I think will help me become happier on an everyday level.

Organize my Apartment

This year we want to finally buy a big book shelf which will take care of a lot of our boxes and toys. Then I want to cut down half of our storage bins by consolidating and getting rid of things so we don’t feel so tight here. I also want to deep clean our apartment every month. I’ve got a little schedule made where I just do one deep cleaning chore a day so it’s not overwhelming.

Stick to our Budget

I know I say this one over and over. But we are going to do it. 2014 is the year.

Give More Affection

It may surprise you, but I am not a touchy-feely person. Sometimes I feel claustrophobic when I’m all cuddled up with T.J. It gets worse the more I think about it. But it’s all in my head! T.J. loves affection and physical touch is his love language. (Mine is receiving gifts, btw…) So, this year. I’m going to show more love and affection to my husband. I am so grateful for my husband so I need to let him know it!

What are your goals?

    20 pounds! You don’t look like you have 20 pounds to loose missy! I’m trying to loose 10 and I’m having a hard enough time with that! We can do it, right? And yeah I’m with you on the affectionate thing. I hate hugging and touching. And Alex is super touchy…I should work on that too!

    Just found your blog and I love it! I am with you on the more loving thing as well, my husband and I are the exact same way. My love language is gifts and he knows it, so he has been surprising me a lot with gifts, I need to return the favor now. Will be reading your blog from now on. Also my husband served his mission in New Jersey, so that’s cool. Anyway love the blog!
