These are my goals for 2012.
1H) Aim to get back to my pre-preg day’s weight.
Goals to work on once I join back my job
1F) I want to bring our mortgage to such an extent where my house can service itself.
2F) Maintain my EF as 3 months of expenses.
3F) If I can save for retirement as much as I did in 2010, that will be a good punch to future expenses.
Newly Added(missed in setting goals but was always there in my mind)
Goals to work on till I am on leave (unpaid and would be bonus if can be continued even when I join back)
4F) Manage our all monthly expenses within my DH's salary.
1P) To start the habit of getting up at 6:00 in the morning.
2P) I think one of the most vague yet most important goals is to maintain a WORK-LIFE balance once I join back my job.
It's January end and let's see how am I fairing in these goals.
Goal 1H - Bringing my weight and stamina to pre-preg days - PASS. Though I'll be officially joining GYM only once I join back my office, I am trying to maintain an active lifestyle. Doing some household chores, taking stairs, taking care of my baby is improving my stamina slowly.
Goal 1F- Bringing down mortgage - NA Yet.
Goal 2F- Having EF as 3 months of living Expenses - NA Yet.
Goal 3F- Save for Retirement - NA Yet.
Goal 4F- Survive on DH's salary alone- PASS. Including an unplanned trip to Delhi. Wow. Touchwood !
Goal 1P- Getting up early - PASS. I am starting this with small steps because I desperately want to achieve this. I aimed that for this month I will get up between 7:30 to 8:00 and I consistently achieved it while in Hyderabad. For next month I am aiming to getting up between 7:00 to 7:30.
Goal 2P- Having a balanced life - PASS. Very difficult to quantify but when I look at my sheet for my baby's daily chores its almost filled with done. Also my house is generally in order so it seems I was able to strike a basic balance last month.
This was about me. How was your January?
