NEW YEARS GOALS UPDATE . . .

I thought I'd update you on my New Years Goals.

TO LOSE WEIGHT: So far I've lost 11 lbs. That means I have 3 more to go for the initial Weight Watchers goal. And about a bazillion more to go until I'm completely finished. It's very daunting. Not sure I'll make it. I've been making healthier choices in what I've been eating. No chips, no sweets. More fruits and veggies. But that's getting REALLY old, REALLY fast. (And I will tell you that I am taking tonight off. We are having our monthly Game Night tonight and I plan on enjoying the appetizers that I'm making, and having a few drinks as well). I've been trying to drink more water too. So far I've been drinking about 3-4 glasses of water a day. My goal for next week is to increase that to 5-6 glasses of water a day. More water means less diet Coke. I LOVE my diet Coke, but I know water is much better for me. Another thing I've decided to do to help with that goal is to change what I order at restaurants. If I go to a restaurant that serves Diet Pepsi, I am going to order water instead. It may not sound like much, but it's a start, and it's a big deal for me.

TO BE MORE ORGANIZED:  I've been writing down all of my appointments in my calendar, and I've also been putting them in my phone and computer.  I don't think I'll ever be organized at home, but maybe my schedule will at least be organized!  
 
TO WRITE MORE:  My goal was to write 4 times a week.  This posting is only number 3, so I need to work on that one a little more.  I LOVE to write, my problem is that sometimes I don't know what to write about, and other times I feel like it's just not that important.  But I guess if it's important to me, then that's really all that matters.  So next week, I'm going to write 4 times, and not 3.

TO DO BETTER IN MY BUSINESS:  Real Estate:  This past week we went out on a Listing appointment on Saturday.  After that appointment I met with some potential clients.  They won't be in a position to buy until AT LEAST August, but I met with them to try and get the ball rolling and to see what they need to do to be ready to buy in August.  On Wednesday we had our all company awards meeting.  I didn't win any awards.  But my goal is to join the 20% Club for next year.  That means that I have to do 20% more business than I did last year.  You gotta start somewhere, right?!  

Thirty-One:  I talked to 2 different people about having a party in February when the new catalog comes out.  I also talked to someone else about maybe joining the company because she is looking for a small part time job that she can do along with her other job.  I'll let you know what comes of it.

So that's the update on my goals.  I'll update you again next week.  I figure I'll be more likely to accomplish them if I have to be accountable to someone.

Congrats on the weight loss. That is great!

I sometimes can't think of anything to write about either. Sometimes I just start typing and see where my (much abused and neglected) mind takes me. ;)

Love that you're posting more!
