Day 1: Goal Setting

Hi All

Well here is my first post for the 'Blog Everyday in May' challenge. See my original post here. The topic for today is 'Goal Setting' whether that be in life, the year, month or just today! I thought I'd do a little bit of each.

Goals for today:
  • Tidy up ready for visitors at the weekend
  • Spend an hour sorting out filing/bills
  • Complete 7 minute workout
  • Drink at least 6 glasses of water
  • Update 'to do' list for Christening plans
Goals for the month:
  • Put savings away for the 52 week Instagram challenge for this month
  • Finish buying Steven's birthday presents (done)
  • Complete the 'Blog Everyday in May' challenge (started!)
  • Try to blog hop at least once a week
  • Finish sorting the filing
  • Find a mother/baby group to go to
Goals for the year:
  • Save and budget money more (a necessity with being on maternity leave! Going...okish!)
  • Lose baby weight (attempting to lose half a stone before we go on holiday in 5 weeks! Start off with a small goal....going ok at the moment!)
  • Blog more and about a variety of things (hopefully this challenge will help with this!)
  • De-clutter and organise the house (work in progress but have little time to commit to this with a newborn!)
  • Take more photos and begin to use video camera (started but would like to improve quality)
  • Complete Project Life album for 2014 (in progress but would've liked to have done more by now...)
  • Read at least one book for pleasure each month (going very well-in fact probably read more than one a month-when baby falls asleep in my arms, the kindle comes out!)
  • Spend two hours crafting a week (not going too well....hopefully will get better at this!)

So that's it for now! Love having a list like this that I can tick off...think I am a bit of a listaholic! Anyone else feel the same?

Enjoyed my first post for this challenge-hope I can keep it up! Why don't you join in? Link your blog below and I will pop over and say hello!
