2012 Goals Tracking - July End

I missed doing my monthly reviews for past couple of months. Will let you know why, but for now here is my July review.

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.

Personal :
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 July end and let's see how am I fairing in these goals.

Over to tracking now:
Goal 1H - Bringing my weight and stamina to pre-preg days - NO Clue. I don't even remember where I stood at the end of July.

Goal 1F - Bringing down mortgage - NA Yet. No more applicable actually as must have been clear from my March update.
Goal 2F - Having EF as 3 months of living Expenses - PASS. Ontrack for the first time in this year on this goal. YIPPEEE
Goal 3F - Save for Retirement - PASS.
Goal 4F - Survive on DH's salary alone- PASS. Cheating. My husband got his bonus, hence, again for the first time this year, I cracked even this one. ;)

Goal 1P- Getting up early - PASS. I got up between 7:00 AM to 7:30 AM almost all weekdays.
Goal 2P- Having a balanced life - Not Sure. Yes. I had a tiff with my manager and I quit my job in middle of month. Well I am known to work on my terms and conditions. Don't get me wrong. I have always got feedback that I am very professional and thorough with my work. I always expect basic respect in a job. Thats how I treat even my domestic help. Hence I quit and started another job search.

This was about me. How was your July? Well too late to ask this. :(



  1. Pooji!! Hey lady! Gosh, it's good to see you!

    Great job keeping your goals in focus. Summer is a time for lines to blur a bit here in the US, so you're either inspiring me or making me feel bad (still not sure which). :)

    This summer I got to kick something off my Bucket List - I bought and learned to ride a motorcycle! The rest of my summer may have been crap, but I'm still smiling because of that!

    I sincerely hope your reasons for being so "behind" are good... Great to see you again!

  2. Hi Emily. Sooooooooo goood to hear from you after so long. How are things at your end?
