March Goals - the month of moving!

I'm looking forward to getting the move all wrapped up! Here's what's on the list for March. 

1) Financial - 
  • Declutter, pack & move!
  • Get our San Francisco house rented (we are limited on what we can do, other than keeping the house clean & ready, and making it available for showings.)
  • Build a brand new budget for our lives, with our new costs & expenses
  • Find one alternative cost cutting option (so far, in January I started using newspapers to clean mirrors, in February I utilized my bike to run errands, so let's see what March will hold!)
  • Sell another $100 of items on either eBay or my local Facebook swap site. 
  • Unpack & organize the new house
2) Family - Spend more time together as a family!

  • Do a minimum of one fun activity/month with the kids. This can be family puzzle night, cooking dinner together, board games, going out somewhere, etc. 
  • Be more present with the kids & M - play games, minimize computer time, exercise together, etc.
  • Have two dates with M per month (one lunch, one evening) 
  • Figure out adjusted travel plans for 2017

    3) Fitness/health - Lose 3 pounds in March
    • Run 12 miles in March
    • Eat five servings of fruit & vegetables (combined) per day
    • Complete 1000 minutes of cardio
    • Complete 6 strength workouts.
    • Complete 6 stretching workouts. 
    • Work out at least once on my business trip

    4) Work/career - Improve my work life balance.
    • Keep better perspective at work/reduce stress 
    • Work from home 2x this month.
    • Find a new job

      5) Personal/creative - Spend more time on myself/creative pursuits.
      • Try a new recipe
      • Do something social at least once per month.
      • Volunteer a minimum of 1x/month.

      March is going to be a big month for us, with the move, a business trip, & hopefully me finding a new job. What about you? What are you hoping to accomplish in March? 


      1. Its funny how kids still like real non-electronic family games. At Christmas my 22 year old stepson and 19 year old stepdaughter wanted to play game after game of family scrabble and yahtzee :)

      2. Moving is very exciting and I imagine it will feel great to be settled! I hope you find renters soon!

      3. I like your couple and family goals. It is so easy to get caught up in the business, and being intentional is so important. You got this!
