Spring 2015 Goals

At the beginning of every year I set goals for myself. I enjoy taking time to reflect on where I hope to be in the future and setting goals helps me outline a path forward. In 2015 I hope that I can accomplish some pretty significant goals that will benefit not only myself but also my future family.

Goal #1
I am going back to school in the spring. Although I am only taking one class, I wanted to get a start on taking classes and get a sense for how much of an academic workload I can handle before jumping in to a full class schedule. I hope to do well in this class as I have not been academically challenged since taking a class in 2012. With going back to school, I am anticipating that I will be reading a lot more than I do now. I set a goal for myself to read 25 books this year. This is quite a large goal but I have so many books that I want to read so I know that if I set a goal, the chances of me reading the books on my nightstand will be higher than if I don't set a goal. Right now I am currently reading the American Sniper.

Goal #2
I am taking the GRE in a few weeks and would like to get a decent score so that I can apply to a Ph.D program in the fall. I am not the best test-taker so to say I am nervous is an understatement.

Goal #3
Over the past couple of months, my fitness goals have taken a backseat due to cold weather and the holidays. I am looking forward to trying out the new GoQii Band and App. Equipped with personal coaching and the ability to earn "karma" points to help worthy causes, I hope to get motivated to train for a half marathon and be encouraged to be more active. Join the GoQii beta program along with me! I am looking forward to being motivated by a personal coach to specifically help me with nutrition goals and with working up endurance and stamina to be able to run 13.1 miles again.

Goal #4
Try new things. I love new adventures and I find myself eager to learn and explore activities that I have never tried before. I am interested in taking a cake baking class at Michaels or even signing up for a sewing class so I can learn to make quilts. Signing up for Crossfit has popped in my head as a new activity to try although I am hesitant because I hear that it can be really rough on your body and I don't want to get hurt if I plan to run a half marathon in the spring. I have even thought about getting a tattoo to document my newfound strength and pride in how far I have come over the past couple of months. There are so many new things to try and afterall, I am feeling rather brave these days.
What are your goals for 2015?
