30 Day Challenge


For the month of January, I vow to do this challenge – fill 30 grocery bags with either donations or items to trash/recycle. It’s a small, bite-size way I can start de-cluttering our home without getting overwhelmed. I figure one day I may do three bags but another day I may do none. As long as I have filled 30 by the end of the month, I will have succeeded.

I plan to put a simple tracker up in our home. Next month I will do another challenge of some sorts – maybe something with writing or blogging. Each week I will post my progress hoping this will keep me accountable an on track.

Here’s to big, exciting stuff in 2015!


2015 Goals

This year I have big plans as I do every year. I always start out with the best intentions. This year I plan to keep my big goals in front of me in hopes of moving forward.

Freelance full-time This is a scary goal. I can’t believe I actually want to leave my well paying full-time job for the unknown, uncertain world of freelancing. But I value my time and my best hours are work hours. I want to do more for me. To get off to a good start with freelancing leads me to the other goals for 2015.

Debt Free With debt gone, we get to keep more of our money a month. Win- Win.

Save at least $3K I want to have a starting amount for freelancing to help me get started. That way if I only make $100 the first few months I have some money to fall back on since my income will be the fun money.

WRITE If I want to make money writing, then I need to write and write a lot.

Draw Another hobby/passion I am developing hopefully into a web comic at some point.

Lose Weight and RUN! Have to do this!

Organize and clean house By this I mean clear the clutter

So over the next week I will take each of these goals and break it out further for a better plan/course of action. Also maybe a monthly checklist/tracker. So my action items for the next week:

Blog about each goal
Develop tracker for goals for monthly blog post

Here is hoping 2015 is the best year yet!

Stress for the Holidays

Here it is almost the middle of December. The full swing of the holidays is right around the corner. I am so not ready but I never am really. This year though it just seems different.

I can feel the stress slowly building. Work is picking up which only makes me wish that I didn’t work there. I want to write more and do my own thing. I shouldn’t let this stuff get to me but instead use it as motivation to do something about it.

The last time I had a running routine it was because of stress. Running helped relieve the anxiety I was feeling. I’ve joked with my husband that life has been too good and I don’t have any anger issues to work out therefore I cannot seem to get back into running. But that all may be changing as this past week has really taken a toll on me.

This weekend will be about relaxing (and possibly running) and just getting into the holiday zone. I will not stress about gift giving or anything else this December. It’s so much easier said or in this case typed than done.
