Goals for 2020

Today is the first day of the new year, the first day for new beginnings, the first day for those resolutions. 

I don’t really stick to resolutions, I don’t know why really. Goals, goals I can stick to, I guess I just trust that word more than resolutions.

Why do we need goals?

Goals are a way to keep us focused although sometimes we get distracted, goals help to bring us back to the now and keep us pushing forward.

Goals for 2020

Goal List:

  1. My freelance business – I want to get it up and running, full time. I am hoping to make $2,000 a month by June. I  think it’s impossible for me to work full time in a office work environment with my poor mental health at times & migraines. Writing is by far my dream job and I’d love to be able to make a living from the fruits of my labor. I don’t think I’ve every been so excited or motivated. 

This brings me to my next goal:

  1. Mental health – when I have good days I get so much done, Other days not so much. You’d think mania days were productive but in my case you’d be wrong. I successfully start about 4-5 things and never finish them. Yeah, I need to make improvements.
  2. Healthy foods – I’m definitely going to start cooking and eating heather foods. At the end of 2019 I lost 25 pounds and feel great! I’d like to lose about 20 more which would put me at my goal weight again. I want to try foods I’ve never thought about trying before and sometimes forcing myself to like them.
  3. Running/Walking – this category & I have history which is also a love hate one. I use to run 6 miles everyday then after the half marathon (I didn’t train for – I know!) I hurt my knee so I dropped off (hints the weight gain). I’ve already signed up for a 5k, 10k (starting slow), and a challenging.

  1. 1000 Mile Challenging – yes, you read it right. It’s to help raise money for charities. I have all year to do the 1000 miles but I’m hoping to knock them out by July. I’m so impatient.
  2.  Read more books – I’d like to start reading again, I’d like to read a book a month. We will see how that goes.

Wow, that’s more goals than I thought I had.. 

What’s the biggest goal you wish to accomplish this year?

  1. I hope you will achieve all of them! I would add, if you want to try new food, do not force yourself to like it. Start by adding small dozes, and then gradually move up. That’s how you won’t have trouble of forcing anything!
    Happy new year 😊🎆

  2. You and I have very similar goals for the upcoming year! Work from home, exercise (bad knee here too), eat healthily, prioritizing mental health…it’s a lot but it’s achievable! Starting your own business and moving is so inspirational! I know you can do it. Best of luck in 2020 🙂

  3. Awesome goals! I’m a freelance writer and $2000 is more than doable. It helped me to set smaller goals to reach my bigger income goal, then create action steps for reaching each one. Hope you have a great 2020!

  4. I’m about to have a bub, due in 6ish weeks now! I will definitely be working hard at walking/running too to help get my weight down. Ah the effort!

  5. What type of books do you like to read? If it’s urban fiction, I have TONS of recommendations! And girl, I’m in the same boat, trying to drop about 20 pounds. Yesterday, I tried cooking a stuffed bell pepper and succeeded! So gone ahead and give it a try. 😊 ignore the messy middle and focus on the beautiful ending 💜

    1. I read almost anything as long as I can get into it, I’m not really into a sci-if type books. I guess I could give me a try though. I’ve tried my hand at the illusive stuffed bell pepper but I don’t think I’m cooking it right. This weight was so easy to put on yet so hard to take off. 😩 I want a redo! Lol

  6. So right now I’m reading Vengeance by Zane and it’s awesome. I’ve been consistently strength training but it obvious that I need to hit some cardio 🤦🏽‍♀️ so next week I’m gonna try my best to get some good cardio work in!
