My Goals: Week of Feb 9

I cannot believe that March is almost here. I am willing it to be here tomorrow in favor of better weather, but that is beside the point. A little over 6 weeks ago I made a series of goals that I would like to accomplish by 2015. Since the year is almost 2/12 of the way complete my goals should be 2/12. I am attempting to break my goals into little weekly bite sized chunks to prevent me from being overwhelmed.

This week’s bite size goals

  1. Put myself first. This week if I don’t feel like doing it…I ain’t doing it. I realize I spend a lot of time doing things I don’t want to do. Doing things at work that no one cares about. Going out when I want to stay home. Buying something I really want. This week, I will take a moment to ask myself “What would Kelly do?” Then follow the answer.
  2. Make my own lunch. I spend a small fortune on lunch at work. I have gained 10 lbs in the last month. I want to get back to the simple things. Cooking is at the top of the list. Hopefully it will help my bottom and bottom line.
  3. Spend time with my man. I have been neglecting the love of my life due to work commitments and melancholy. I plan to make it up to him by scheduling a time for him to visit the vet and the groomer at PetSmart. I may even make him a meal while I am at it.
  4. Reconnect with friends. So many people in my life have gotten engaged or had babies and I buy them things, but never take the time to write heartfelt notes and send them out. I will do that this week. I often complain about being isolated when there are definitely people in the world who love me. I would feel the love more if I just took the time to reach out.
  5. Home project #1. Do you know that I love power tools more than my own mother? I daydream while looking at Design Sponge or Apartment Therapy. It’s better than a third date. My new apartment is pretty blah and I think if I do a few small weekend projects I can change that.
  6. EXTRA CREDIT: Get rid of 5 things. The Bestie is coming and giving me all of her furniture before she heads to LA. Don’t worry, that will get it’s own post as soon as I can stop frowning. I am super excited for new furniture as I am about to set flame to this shitty Ikea mattress. But I need to make room by getting rid of 5 things every week.

I will check in on Saturday night! Let’s see how far I get. I’m not totally optimistic.
