2014 Goals, January Update

My Goals for 2014

One month has passed by so it’s time for me to update my goals for this year. While I don’t have any to cross off, some of them will be ongoing for the full year, I did make some progress this past month.

I really concentrated on my personal goals this past month. I did well with my exercising this past month. I’m participating in the 12 Months to a Healthier You Challenge and January’s focus was on exercising. So that really helped me to stay focused on my exercising goal.

I also finished a book in January, keeping me on track for reading 12 books this year. I struggle at times to find the time to read but I’m really trying to get some reading in each week.

January all in all was a fairly good month as far as making some progress on my goals. I’m hoping to make good progress again this month.

How did you do on your goals for January? Did you make some good progress?

    Great goals!!! My word for the year is “intentional.” I want to be intentional about all I do- my housework, feeding my family, my health, my marriage, my child, and my faith. 🙂
