Goals for September

A new fresh month, and a few new goals to consider in September!

1) Financial - 
  • Meet with a financial planner
  • Finalize investments & budget from post rental house sale
  • Plan our 2018 budget
  • Plan our 2018 travel plans
  • Finalize list of house projects for our "new" house
  • Find one alternative cost cutting option
  • Sell another $100 of items on either eBay or my local Facebook swap site. If nothing sells, donate & get rid of the clutter.

2) Family - Spend more time together as a family!
  • Cook one meal with each kid, so they can start helping with the cooking.
  • Have a family game night. 
  • Get the kids involved in prioritizing our 2018 travel.
  • 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)

    Fitness/health - Lose 4 pounds in September
    • Stay on track on my business trip to London (complete at least 3 workouts)
    • Eat five servings of fruit & vegetables (combined) per day
    • Complete 1000 minutes of cardio
    • Complete 6 strength workouts.
    • Complete 6 stretching workouts
    • Find another event to train for, now that my relay is over

    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 using my new crockpot
      • Do something social at least once per month.
      • Volunteer a minimum of 1x/month.

      That's it for me! What about you? Any big new goals for September? Or, small but manageable goals? Sometimes those are the most fun. :-)
