Challenges for October 2011

And I’m back. What better way to return than a post about what I’d like to accomplish this month? Some of it’s money, some of it’s fitness, all of it requires attention!

Yes, I call them Challenges rather than Goals because I’m a competitive sort of person with myself and think it’ll make me more likely to get stuff done. It’s October which means that my quarterly items from my 101 in 1,001 need to be done too.

  • Complete weeks 1-4 of Couch to 5K
  • Update resume
  • Go through closet and dresser for tossing/donation/sell back
  • Save 75% of swim pay and babysitting pay
  • List 2 items on Etsy
  • Track spending and establish budget for November
  • Start making lists for the holiday shopping season
  • Submit for reimbursement for LP trip
  • No shopping for me other than work related stuff for convention.
  • Send out packages to D, The Bro, and BatGirl
  • Write for 4 of my JoyJuice prompts
  • Pick Sewing Sunday with friends
  • Bring lunch 4 days a week and only 2 dinners out a week (one with Gia, one with Frank)
  • Pack up winter hats to send home
  • Make eye appointment

I think that’s good for now, I don’t want to get too ambitious. Ha.

What would you like to accomplish in October?

Challenges for this week (May 16-22, 2011)

I’ve decided that it’ll be more “fun” to call my goals challenges. I can be a fairly competitive person (with myself) so I think this will help more. Also, you should know that my weeks go Monday to Sunday.

Goals Challenges for this week (May 16-22, 2011):

  • Bring lunch all work week other than travel day. Eat out no more than 2x over the weekend.
  • Take printer to get fixed (under warranty)
  • No groceries outside of fresh/frozen fruit, yogurt, milk, and a cake mix for a little friend’s birthday. And a skein of yarn for a specific Etsy project. This one to be exact
  • Dinner out only one night. (After dance class with Gia!)
  • Sort books in to Keep, Maybe Keep, and Get the Hell Out of My House Donate. Donate the ones I don’t want.
  • Finish book I’m reading and choose another to read before bed.

So that’s it for me. What are you working on or towards this week?

Challenges for this week (Feb 7-13, 2011) Recap

I’ve decided that it’ll be more “fun” to call my goals challenges. I can be a fairly competitive person (with myself) so I think this will help more. Also, you should know that my weeks go Monday to Sunday.

Goals Challenges for this week (Feb 7-13, 2011):

  • Take clothes I don’t want to Clothes Mentor or to donate. Nope.
  • Bring lunch 4 days this week. I brought lunch 3 days. One day I went out with Mom and Friday I had to get lunch.
  • Move money around and put 75% of swim pay in savings (25% in Cap Com and 50% in ING) Yes!
  • Get groceries as in ONLY what’s needed (Make a list and stick to it!) Do laundry with only cash on hand. I did. I added one thing to the list at the store though, razors, but I meant to put them on the list at home. Laundry didn’t get done.
  • Finish current Etsy project, list and promote. Post and promote The Lauren. No on the first one. Yes on the second one! But I called it the Daisy Next Door. And it’s so cute.
  • Test drive 2 cars. Nope. Worked through lunch and then opted to relax in the evening.
