May Goals

this will never not be funny.

 

I’m super excited to set some goals this month. A couple weeks ago after seeing and scrolling past picture after picture of Lara Casey’s power sheets, I decided to take the plunge…again.

I got the power sheets years ago, but they didn’t really work for me. I had a hard time using them, so I figured that was that.

Wrong.

I am so happy I gave them another chance because it’s helped me immensely with getting back on track. I’m sure there’s a blog coming on the whole power sheets process, but for now.

Here’s my May goals.

+Get the new Megan Elizabeth Photography up and running
Can’t. Explain. How. Excited. I am for this! Also can’t give away any details.

+Find a daily routine with Jesus
As mentioned previously, Em’s back to actually sleeping (PRAISE GOD) so I’m trying to figure out what time of day works best to get with God. Before she gets up? Ya’ll I’m such a sleeper. It’s a work in progress.

+Write out a cleaning schedule
Figuring out what days to vacuum, or what days to do laundry would be helpful. Right now it’s kind of a “that looks super messy, I should clean it” thing.

+Plan a family vacation
This one REALLY fires me up. Also have no idea on where to go. We live in Orlando, the hub of all vacations. But we’re thinking something different. And yes, we’re away she’s only 1 and a half and won’t remember it, but we will! Any suggestions are super welcome!

+Get back to meal planning and eating out less
I do not even want to know what our Uber Eats bill has been these last two months. Nope.

+Give social media free weekends a try
Hi, my name is Megan and I’m on my phone too much.
Baby steps here. But something has to change.

New Year, New Goals

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

I still haven’t totally made my mind up on whether I like goals or not. I make them every year, and most times I don’t come through with them.

But when I say I feel a little different this year…I actually mean it.
I’ve got this, “You go, girl” attitude happening right now.

And the key is to keep it going.

I came up with nine goals for my year. Nine goals that get me really, really excited about life in general.

#1. Read through the Bible.
I’m pretty sure this has been on my goals list for a couple years now, and to be even more honest here I’ll say I’m not even sure I’ve ever started it. Ok I’ve started, but I get to the end of Genesis and stop. If you’ve got a good plan let me hear it!

#2. Get in better shape.
I actually wrote “loose weight” in my notebook but I don’t really love that idea. I’m not defined by the number on the scale, so it’s so much more about how I feel. I’ve never struggled with weight, but I’m currently the heaviest I’ve ever been. And while I’ve thought I’d loose all that baby weight by now, I haven’t. I’m starting the 21 day Fix again next week, so there’s a jump start on this goal!

#3. Cook through “French Country Cooking”.
Sonny got me this, and a Dutch oven for Christmas and I’ve never loved a cookbook more. I’ve also never picked one up and thought that I needed to make every.single. recipe in it. Like, every one. Every. Single. One. I’ve already made three so far. Which is pretty much more than any other cookbook I own.

#4. Read 25 books.
Between last June and now, I’ve finished 15 books. When I counted them all up the other day I was so proud of myself. So here’s to reading more than my goal!

#5. Find a home for everything!
Even if I have to buy every organizer and container known to man, my home will be organized!

#6. Reevaluate/ Redesign Megan Elizabeth Photography.
I own a photography business. That I’ve honestly put on the back burner for the last couple of years, but I’m so freaking excited to move it up to one of the front ones. I’m sharing a big announcement on there today in fact!

#7. Go on a family vacation.
When you live in the place that people normally vacation to, it makes actually taking a vacation hard. And yes, I get that Emily is only a year old. But a nice weekend away would be lovely. I’m thinking Savanah.

#8. Memorize more scripture.
Because it’s just better for everyone.

#9. Start having dinner all together.
This one might be more towards summer and the end of the year, to be honest. Em still eats dinner around 430/5 so once I can get her more towards 5/530 I want us to start having dinner all together. Sonny and I usually don’t eat until 8, so it would be a nice change for everyone. Plus. Family dinners are the highlights of my childhood.

So 2017, let’s do this. All the things, but not too many of the things that I loose focus.
