May goals - yes, a little late

I'm late to the party this month, but half way through the month is better than not at all, right? :-)

I wasn't sure what the month would bring, so I tried not to overextend myself. Here is what I'm hoping to get accomplished for the rest of the month.

  1. Make an appointment with an eye doctor. (This is a requirement before I've been on my medication for more than a month, due to side effects.)
  2. Get together with at least two friends. I can feel myself "closing off" a bit as I deal with stress, and I need my friends now, more than ever.
  3. Work my network. I have 15 years of experience, and a lot of fantastic contacts. My best chance of landing a flexible role that pays well is through my network.
  4. Find one budget category to cut this month.
  5. Decide on next ten items for eBay, and take all photos.
  6. Figure out what to do with the odds & ends in my freezer, & then actually do something with it. I'm looking at you:
    1. carrots (already pureed). Maybe muffins?
    2. bits & pieces of homemade bread. Bread crumbs or just for the ducks? :-)
    3. A small chunk of ham. Lentil soup?
    4. Mango. Smoothies or mango sorbet
  7. Complete 800 minutes of cardio, 15 strength workouts, & 5 stretching workouts.
  8. Plan vacation in June with M.
  9. Plan/make reservations for girls trip in July.
  10. Celebrate my grandmother's 80th birthday, and Mother's Day with my mom this weekend, and stay calm. Keep the budget under control.
  11. Have 8 No Spend Days.

I think that will do it! How are you doing with your May goals?


  1. Those are great goals! :) Interesting that you say you're "closing off" because of stress.. i'm going through the same thing. Have a few *big* things going on and i've told nobody... :( I feel like i'm drowning somedays.. sad. :(

    Get together with your friends and have a blast!! Hugs!!

  2. I 'closed off' with stress a few years ago and it's hard to get back out - definitely keep your friends close at this time.
    May goals? I sort of set Spring goals and I'm about half way to achieving them.

    Good luck this month x
