February Goals - let's get it started!

February promises to be a better month than January. ;-) It's my birthday, we're going to visit my family, and my oldest is turning 8. Where has the time gone?!

Here are my goals for February. If you're curious about my 2014 goals, you can find them here.

  1. Lose 2 lbs. This is a must do, and will be tricky, since I'll be out of town, and there will be lots of celebrations. I need to stay focused & make every day count.
  2. Continue tracking my calories in My Fitness Pal.
  3. Improve my fitness by doing the following:
    1. 900 minutes of cardio (less than usual - a short month)
    2. 8 strength workouts.
    3. 6 stretching workouts.
  4. Decide on a half marathon.
  5. Have one date night with M.
  6. Build financial scenarios for the long term, considering all options for us (one income, two income, locations, etc).
  7. Finalize our legal documents that I finally ordered. I'm SO PROUD that I did this! :-)
  8. Put $500 in boys college accounts, as their birthday gifts.
  9. Save $1,000 for downpayment fund.
  10. Pay off $3500 towards our mortgages.
  11. Track spending, create a month end summary/report.
  12. Get together with one friend. Still working on broadening my social network in the new area. :-)
  13. Read 4 books.
  14. Have 10 no spend days.

I think that will do it! How about you? What are your February goals? 


  1. I'm proud of you for getting those wills done too!!!

  2. Great goals - very ambitious though. Good for you on the wills! Something you will never regret! Good luck on the weight loss - it is tough, but you are motivated enough!
