Setting goals for June

June is going to be a month of summer camp, vacationing at the beach, and the kids out of town for a trip to Disneyland with my parents. I'm looking forward to all of it! Here's what I'd like to accomplish in June.

1) Financial - 
  • Meet with realtor to discuss/adjust pricing & get our Seattle house sold!
  • Finalize our budget list for our (new) house
  • Finalize family budget for post rental house sale
  • Find one alternative cost cutting option
  • Avoid buying groceries while the kids are with my parents (this should be easy, as we always have plenty in the fridge) & keep grocery spending in check when I'm with the kids at the beach
  • Sell another $100 of items on either eBay or my local Facebook swap site. 
  • More decluttering & organizing in our new house (would like to get the boys closet shelving installed, so they can put away/organize all of their games & toys)
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 three dates with M  - the kids are out of town for a few days, so this should be doable!
  • Finalize M's birthday & Father's Day
  • Figure out what to do for my dad for Father's Day

    3) Fitness/health - Lose 4 pounds in June
    • Run 25 miles in June
    • Start training for my relay
    • 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 June? Any big goals for the month?

      1. I love reading about your goals. I wish I could join you, but right now, there is no way. My one and goal is to keep from having a break down with the building the house. So stressful!
