My goals for 2014 are just a continuation of the post I made in October about my goals for age 36. I have added more details about how I am going to achieve these goals.
1. Lose weight
- exercise more (30 min a day)
- walk more
- record what I eat
- get more sleep
- drink more water
- stop going overboard on weekends
Ideally I would like to lose 1-2 pounds a week and end up being under 200 pounds around January 10, 2015. I don't think this is an insurmountable goal, but I do need to pick it up from the average of 0.7 pounds/week lost in 2013. Since I joined back with SparkPeople I have lost an average of 1.24 pounds/week.
2. Work on my Online Course
- set aside 1 hour each evening
- read the textbooks and make notes
- take tests on schedule
I am finding it really hard to get back on schedule with school. I have no excuses. I basically took a vacation from the end of November until now. Tonight I WILL get started on finishing the Microsoft Office portion of the course as I am really close to completion for that section. I think I need to make a chart or something to figure out how many hours I should be putting in each week.
3. Get Divorced
- get last couple of financial ties cleared up
- fill out paperwork
- have ex served with papers
It's frustrating, but I think I am just going to keep that Scotiabank credit card in my name and pay it off. The ex is just such a loser. His credit is so crappy that he doesn't qualify for a new credit card to transfer the balance. I just don't care anymore, I want to be free of him for good.
4. Find Balance
- spend more time with friends
- pay off more debt
- move out of parent's house
- start dating
- organize days/weeks so I have time for my goals and also for myself.
Since I moved back to Edmonton in April, I have paid off almost $5000 on my credit card. I really appreciate my parents letting me live with them rent free so that I can get back on my feet. I think the plan is for them to purchase a condo here in Edmonton, and my youngest brother and I would pay rent (the mortgage). Then they will sell the house here and move permanently to Victoria. I think we will start getting that all sorted out in February.
