Summer of 2012 I read The Happiness Project while on vacation with Adam. And I just loved the way she had a goal for each month. Because how many of us remember what we resolved to do last January? But one month? That is an amount of time I can handle!
Then I started reading Motley Mama during her one month with out the internet. I had to read it because so many other bloggers were tweeting about it and I got curious. I fell in love with her blog, and there was that same idea again. One month = one goal.
I admit, I'm worried about how these will all go down since I'm having a baby in January. Good thing that's not a surprise so I can kind of tailor my goals to the situation. And I'm excited to blog all of these because I know I wont lose the list somewhere. I am a great loser of things.
January: Get my apartment in order before the baby arrives
February: Cook dinner once a week
March: Learn to really budget well
April: Attempt to potty train Olivia

May: Open my Etsy shop
June: Work out every day, except Sunday
|This is not me. This picture came from here.|
July: Eat vegetarian for a month
August: Read religious texts dailyScriptures or conference talks, I want to make that part of my every day routine (right now I do just okay) and hopefully a month of doing it will make it stick and I'll continue in the months ahead.
September: No Sugar for One Monththis before, two years now, so this month was a no brainer. I'll be following the same rules as last year so no need to type them again.
October: Family coordinated Halloween costumesBilly Idol, Barbie and a Lady Bug have in common? Nothing! I know this is a silly goal, but its probably the only way it will ever happen, otherwise I'll be putting together costumes on Oct 30th!
November: Complete my Christmas Shopping
December: Create four new Christmas decorations
Some are silly and some are serious but hopefully it will push me to do a little more and be a little better this year!
