2014 Goals

  1. Lead a Healthy Lifestyle
  2. Work more with Little on her Training
  3. Earn enough money Blogging & Selling products to support myself
  4. Give back to the community
  5. Gain control of my finances

I’m not sure if I really accomplished any of them…

  1. Lead a Healthy Lifestyle – I worked all year on this, but never really succeeded…I gave up meat, which one would think would have helped me lose some weight, but instead I compensated with cheese and peanut butter and gained…I purchased a FitBit to help track my steps, and some days I did really good, others not so much. As for cooking, I’m mostly spent the year doing super quick and easy. Zero effort is where I was at. 
  2. Work more with Little on her Training – ya so she’s good at walking beside me when we are alone, but the second we walk with a group, she feels the need to be in front….not good. We have the shake a paw, high-five, and spin down. Are working on dancing, but other than that, not so good. I’ve also not been attending as many drop in training sessions as I had hopped to. I was either too tired, or too busy. 
  3. Earn enough money blogging & selling products to support myself – still working at my other jobs. 
  4. Give back to the community – In the past I’ve been really good at this. I loved volunteering and helping out. But this summer, I joined a committee and it was the worst experience ever. The stress and frustration of being on it sent my health into a tailspin, and I had to work very hard to recover. As a result, I’m a little leery of volunteering to be on any committees for the time being. I am however still happy to donate to various charities. 
  5. Gain control of my finances – well, I know exactly where I stand with these, and although I wish they where better, it’s a start. It took me a long time to get to where I am, and it will take me time to get to where I want to be. This is one of those “need more time” things. 

Please tell me that your goals for 2014 where a lot more successful than mine 😉
