2014 Goal Update

2014 Goals January Review:

Lose 2lbs a week by December 31 2014 ON TRACK – Lost 10.6 lbs in January, which works out to 2.12 lbs a week! I’m pretty happy with this success, except when I got sick 2 weeks ago, I threw my diet out the window for convenience and comfort eating :S My c-section scar also re-opened at the end of the December, which meant that I was unable to work out at all. So, now that I am almost healed on all fronts, I’m looking forward to pumping it up in February!

Put $12000 into savings by December 31 2014NOT ON TRACK
– I put $273.35 into my savings account and took out $500, which sets me way off track. However, this was because I bought a bunch of stuff for the basement renovation, and daycare start up, which is what I’m saving for. So, in total I spent $903.57 on basement renovations and daycare supplies (some great sales I couldn’t pass up).

Earn an extra $12000 by December 31 2014 NOT ON TRACK – Outside of regular income, I brought in $426.91 – almost half of what I should have to stay on track.

Start a daycare in September 2014 ON TRACK– I pinned a bunch of kid friendly lunches, came up with some new activities, purchased some toys and storage supplies all on clearance, and started thinking about daily operations.

Read a book a month by December 2014NOT ON TRACK – I only read the first page of The Twelve Tribes of Hattie. I’m so looking forward to reading this, but just haven’t made the time for myself. Guess that means 2 books in February 😀

Finish the basement by August 2014ON TRACK – I am taking a plumbing and electrical course, and a framing course at the local college to learn the basics. I also picked up a bunch of Dricore when it was on-sale and some tools (that I also needed for my courses).

Plant a fruit/vegetable garden in spring 2014ON TRACK – I started to think about what I’m going to grow and have been pinning ideas like crazy!
