May goals

I love the freshness of a new month, and the feeling that anything is possible. Here's what's on the list of projects to tackle for May!

1) Financial - 
  • Finish all projects for our rental house & get it listed!
  • Update our project & budget list for our house
  • Start new family budget for post rental house sale
  • Find one alternative cost cutting option
  • Sell another $100 of items on either eBay or my local Facebook swap site. 
  • Finalize our decluttering & organizing in 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) 
  • Plan M's birthday & Father's Day
  • Figure out what to do for both parents (Mother's Day & Father's Day)

    3) Fitness/health - Lose 4 pounds in May
    • Run 25 miles in May
    • Run a 10K
    • Eat five servings of fruit & vegetables (combined) per day
    • Complete 1000 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.
    • Brainstorm how I would spend my time if I wasn't working. Really think creatively about what this would mean, what the challenges would be, etc.

      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.

      What about you? What are you hoping to accomplish in May? 


      1. These are great goals and I am sure you will accomplish most if not all of them. May is gong to be a bear for me, so I am mainly hoping to just survive it!

      2. Survival is sometimes the only thing we can hope for in certain months! Our moving month was very much like that. :-)
