2019 Review of Goals

So, how did I do?  Do you think I met them all?  Well, let’s find out.  I will list them one by one and give the results.  Tomorrow I will share my goals for 2020 for this blog and my Health Coaching business.

  1.  Get at least 100 followers.  Yes, I actually have 123.  It does make me said that no one has signed up to receive my newsletter but I will work on that.
  2. Upgrade this blog.  Not yet, but hopefully by the end of January.  There are several things I still need to research and consider before taking the leap.
  3. These were my daily goals as I wrote them Daily:  Exercise, meditate, promote this blog, read, read Bible, check email.  I do exercise almost every day, meditate not daily but close, promote this blog yes every day, read- yes every single day, read Bible-  I failed this one, and check email- yes I have managed to check both email accounts daily.
  4. These were my weekly goals:  Weekly:  Make a new to-do list each week, take classes, crafts, clean and declutter, lose 1 pound per week, blog at least 1 day per week.  Make a new to-do list weekly- absolutely always, take classes- yes I have completed several classes in the year 2019 I will share them all in a later post, crafts- yes but not weekly, clean and declutter- yes, but declutter not weekly, lose 1 pound per week- absolutely not more on that later, blog at least one day per week- yep met that one.
  5. These were my monthly goals:  Monthly:  save money every month, date night at least once a month, fix something at least once a month, check MD appointments, volunteer, update this blog.  Save money every month- yes we have done quite well this year with that goal, date night once a month- probably not but we tried, check MD appt- yes, volunteer-no we are looking for new options, update this blog- yes at least monthly if not more often.
  6. Last but not least was my yearly goals:  Yearly:  Join/rejoin nurse.com, be an advocate at NKF, take a vacation, buy SUV tent for camping, buy state park passes, visit family in NY, Hurricane prep, renew Nsg license.  Nurse.com-yes, and nursing license-yes.  Be an NKF advocate-yes but I switched to AKF to be a Kidney Coach more on that later, didn’t buy the tent no one had interest in camping, didn’t buy state park pass either- my daughter wanted the local park pass instead so we bought that, visit family in NY-  no but we already have it planned for 2020, hurricane prep-absolutely yes.

So, as you can see I did pretty well.  How did you do for your goals or resolutions in 2019?  What are you planning for 2020?  Maybe to work with a Health and Wellness Coach to meet your goals?  Hint, Hint.

Happy New Years Eve!goals

Move Your Goals Monday

What goals are you working on for this week?  I try to set at least 5 goals, per week, other than the basics of everyday life.  I have quite a few weekly goals for this week.

9500 steps per day for 7 days.  Last week I missed 2 days.

Exercise at least 30 minutes 5 days a week.  I have been consistently doing this, it can soon be considered a habit.

Discuss recent labs with kidney doctor and make sure it is OK to keep doing what I am doing.  On this goal, I will most likely be increasing my protein from 45 grams per day to 65 based on my most recent labs.  I think I need to increase fluids, also for these hot sweaty months.

Continue Guided Imagery class.

Continue advertising my group session for September, Better Sleep.  You may want to consider joining that group session.  All 5 spots are still open. It is an easy, and affordable way to get to know me as a Health Coach.

Go to the local library to test my AKF Kidney Coach presentation, to make sure it works with their equipment.  If it does I will set up the first class for September.  If it doesn’t I have some more work to prepare for that.

Stick to my eating plan, no cheating, or at least no cheating more than one time per week.

I have a bunch of crafting, and cleaning goals, but they kind of aren’t as important.

Keep the pool clean.  This one is hard right now because we are getting so much rain every day.

What are your goals for this week?  Leave me a comment.  If you would like to learn more about working with me as your Health Coach, you can use the contact form below, or read about my updated available plans, here.

Goals vs Resolutions

Updated 1/31/2022: I am editing old posts and I came across this one. Some of these goals are still goals, but more of habits now. Some of these goals may have not been as realistic as I thought and have been tweaked over time. I can say, with the exception of losing one pound per week, all the other goals have been met.

Happy New Year, 2019!  It is that time of year.  To make resolutions you never intend to keep, or maybe keep for a bit and then let them go.  I don’t set resolutions, never really have.  Why?  Because resolutions are not realistic, and I am a Realist.  I do set goals, however.  Some are daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly.  I do not set goals past one year, never have, probably never will.  Why?  Because to me, there is no control in that, and again I am a Realist.  Life changes, daily sometimes, meaning goals may need to be changed.  That is the Realist in me.  Below I will share some of my goals for 2019.   I am human, so that means goals are often not met, that is why they are goals.  If you want, or need help setting good realistic goals, use the contact form to send me an email and make an appointment for a free consultation.

My Goals for 2019:

Daily:  Exercise, meditate, promote this blog, read, read Bible, check email

Weekly:  Make a new to-do list each week, take classes, crafts, clean and declutter, lose 1 pound per week, blog at least 1 day per week.

Monthly:  save money every month, date night at least once a month, fix something at least once a month, check MD appointments, volunteer, update this blog.

Yearly:  Join/rejoin nurse.com, be an advocate at NKF, take a vacation, buy SUV tent for camping, buy state park passes, visit family in NY, Hurricane prep, renew Nsg license.

Do you make resolutions or set goals?  Please share if you are willing, which, and why.
