February Goals

February is a big month, because we are buying a house! I can't believe it. Lots of fun changes ahead. 

1) Financial - Figure out our housing situation, and get it all resolved (i.e. moved, job changes as needed) before school starts. 
  • Set a move date.
  • 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 (last month it was cleaning the windows with free newspaper vs paper towels). 
  • Determine if we're doing any work in the house, and sources of funding
  • Build new cash flow model
  • Sell another $100 of items on the Facebook swap site. 
  • Continue to declutter so we can pack less!
  • Pack
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 20 pounds, bringing my weight to 133. This may sound familiar, as it's also a carryover goal from last year!
    • Run 12 miles in February
    • Eat five servings of fruit & vegetables (combined) per day
    • Complete 800 minutes of cardio
    • Complete 6 strength workouts.
    • Complete 6 stretching workouts. 

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

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

      That's it for February. It will really be all about moving & preparing to move. What about you? What's on your agenda for February? Any big goals to accomplish?
