Spring Goals {The 2016 Edition}

Spring Goals

What are you hoping to focus on in the next few months?

I started this year thinking that I would just be intentional about creating good habits for myself. Well- it’s not working. I’ve realized that I’m one of those people who needs concrete goals and a concrete plan for accomplishing those goals…

  1. Fitness– Right now my focus is on yoga, flexibility, and building strength. I’ve been scoping out 30 day yoga challenges for months and finally settled on this one.
  2. Reading– Audio books are where it’s at for me right now. For the next couple of months I’m going to work my way through my Audible library starting with Beautiful Ruins, Jess Walter.
  3. Get Outside– Still raining and snowing here but I’ve let that stop me for far too long. I’ve set a goal to enjoy some fresh air every single day. This means bike rides, playing in the yard, prepping the garden, hiking the dry trails, and walks.
  4. Sleep Less– Seriously. I get up when the kiddo gets up and I pass out when the kiddo passes out. I’ve kind of let his schedule run my life for awhile now. I’d like to get up a bit earlier to do grad school work and stay up a bit later to hang out with my husband.

Are you making progress towards your yearly goals? Do you have a word for the year?

    I’m not where I should be in terms of reading, and shifting stuff off my paper TBR, which is at “Defcon level 2” at the moment.

    I know what you mean about concrete objectives (they’re called SMART objectives in our part of corporate land) and I’ve done them for a number of years. Not only do mine cover the amount of books that I read, but things like the amount of traffic I want to get to my website, the number of followers on twitter etc – so it’s not just about the reading!

    I also take part in sessions like Bloggiesta, where you get to spend a specific number of days working on your specific targets – e.g. finishing off blog posts that need to be written and scheduled, clearing up tag lists etc. The week long Spring Bloggiesta happened a few weeks ago, but the mini-challenges are always there to give you inspiration.

    Meanwhile, here are my blogger resolutions for this year. Please bear in mind I have neither a hubby not a child!


    • Yes- SMART goals. I love it. We love Bloggiesta but didn’t have time to do it this go around.

    I can relate to wanting to get outside more! I think I have a very specific set of parameters for me to want to go out. My kids, on the other hand, were happy to play outside for most of the morning yesterday in spite of the drizzling rain!

    • Yes! My son is the same way. I’m trying to follow his lead.
