Small Goals for February 2023

Wednesday, February 8, 2023

I forgot that setting small goals publicly on this blog also means admitting when I've failed at them! That's why I'm doing this, though, right? Gotta hold my feet to the fire, or whatever. Here's a recap of my January goals and how I did on them.
  1. Make a smoothie every weekday. I didn't exactly achieve this, as there were some weekdays when I didn't have a smoothie. But there were many weekends when I did, so I think it probably all evened out?
  2. Schedule a DXA scan. Ugh, I tried to do this, and then it got hard, and then I gave up? But I did finally schedule an appointment as of February 1, so we're gonna say I achieved this one. 
  3. No fast food at night. This is another one that I soooort of achieved? I got Arby's mozzarella sticks twice, including one time after boxing, so I technically didn't hit it. But I got close, so I'm proud of myself.
  4. Organize and put away Christmas decorations. I forgot I set this goal, and no, I did not achieve it. Our decor came down early in the month, but... yeah, the tree is still up. Oops. 
  5. No booze (mostly). I had a few drinks during January, but less than usual. It wasn't all that hard, and I felt fine about it. I realized I just don't really drink all that much to begin with.

We're already more than a week into February, I know, but here are the goals I set in my head for the month and am already working toward completing. 

  1. Spend my FSA money. I have some money left over in my Flex Spending Account, which can only be used on, like, medical stuff? I don't want to spend it all on Band-Aids and Neosporin, so I've got to figure out a worthwhile use for it all before it expires in March.
  2. Complete some important paperwork. This is hella vague, I know (sorry), but I'm putting it here so that I hold myself accountable to it. I'll tell you about it later, maybe, but suffice it to say, this one is important to me and has to be done this month. 
  3. Schedule physical therapy. I threw out my back early this month (cooool, cool) and was given PT orders to help heal. I'm prone to putting off medical appointments for as long as humanly possible (see last month's goal), so I want to prioritize this one.
  4. List purses and shoes online. I've got a bunch of stuff to try to sell on Poshmark, Mercari, Facebook Marketplace, etc. I've listed some of them, but I want to get everything online so that I can promote the heck out of it and hopefully start making some money. 
  5. Finish wallpapering the guest room. I started hanging peel-and-stick wallpaper in our guest room, but I stopped about halfway through because... I don't know, that shit is hard? But now it's just sitting there half-done, so I want to wrap it up.
They don't seem to hard, but life gets in the way sometimes, so I guess we'll see. Do you set monthly goals? What's on your to-do list?
