SPRING Goals

Y'all don't even know how excited I am that it is SPRING. Bye Winter!!

But first, Winter goals:

- No shopping in December, January and February budget $100 each. lol no. I went overboard in December, not great but not bad in January... February was birthday month so I don't know what I was thinking with this goal at all.

- No paying for eating out at work. If boss buys, doesn't count. Eat out with KC only once a week. I paid for lunch (like jimmy johns etc) 8 times in December, zero times in January (WHAT) and too many times to count in February. Moving on....


- Exercise consistently. If you add up all the days and then all the workouts, I totally succeeded on average. However, I slacked off a lot in December and the start of January, but picked it up and as of today, I have exercised 39 days in a row. High five.

- Organise photos. boom. Gina suggested I set a timer or work on them 10 minutes here or there and that really helped me get it all done.



2 out of 4 ain't bad.

Also, wanted to check in with my 2016 goals, considering we are now a couple months in.


  • Exercise consistently (3-4 times a week) and eat well (lots of fruit and veg). - going strong with exercise, weak with food.
  • Try new recipes. with KC and I doing the Sunday thing, and me trying a new recipe or two a week, this is going really, really well. 
  • Shop less. Save more. Not so great with this one right now, but I am hoping to get a couple of no shopping months under my belt. Our savings account is going strong right now, which is great, but in the words of Ariel, I want moooooore.
  • Pay off debt. I am not making enough headway with this, and that is not okay. This needs to be the most important one.
  • Fix the house up a bit. Nothing crazy, but paint some rooms and work on the list. We haven't done anything yet, but hopefully will when the weather gets warmer.
  • Successfully set up some sort of meal plan routine. Eh. Not horrible, not great. I have good weeks and bad weeks. I will get there.
  • Give up soda. After 53 days of no soda, I caved. And you know what, I don't care. I am trying to make sure I drink all of my water before soda, and I am trying not to go crazy and have 75 a day. I know soda is bad for you. But I don't drink coffee, I rarely drink alcohol (except when I do, then I drink it all, but during the week or 'one-offs' is not something I do), I don't smoke, soda is my only vice (besides all the food I eat) and life is short (probably shorter with the addition of soda) so for right now, I am giving up on giving soda up.


Now for Spring goals! (March-May)

- No shopping in March. Be reasonable in April and May if I 'have' to shop. I would like to say no shopping at all for 3 months, but I think it's smarter for me to take this goal one month at a time. If I say 3 months no shopping, I'll freak out and accidentally fall into Target on the way home.

- No (paying for) eating out for lunch. If the boss buys pizza, how can I say no? But seriously. Eating out is a waste of money and it is never as healthy as a meal from home. I need to remind myself of that. Also, no vending machine visits, as they add up when you go 3 times a day.

- Continue working out consistently but up the effort. I don't know if everyday is gonna work forever, but right now it is absolutely working to keep me motivated. However, I do need to increase the effort in each workout, because right now I am not giving it my all for fear of burning out. 

- Organise photos for future photobook orders. The purpose of organising my photos was to get some sort of yearbook thing going. So now I need to go through all of them and decide how to go about photobooks and such. I don't think I want to order them right now, but I'd like to at least get ready.

- Reduce current debt by 15%. I think this is doable over 3 months. The thing I need to realise is, if I don't stop shopping and start paying off debt, we will not be going to Australia next year, we will not be moving in the next 5 years and we will not be paying off our cars.

- Increase savings so that it is triple our 'norm' from last year. KC once told me a minimum he wanted in savings at all times, so I took that as a 'as long as we have this much in savings, I can do whatever I want!' and I'd end up shopping too much or being reckless with money. We are now at double that amount we (I) got too comfortable with, but I'd like to triple it.

- Declutter and purge like a mad woman. I am feeling the spring cleaning fever you guys. I open a cabinet and ask myself why do we have 50 beer glasses? WHY? Why are the closests in the spare rooms jam packed? Why do I have 75 books to read, and another 100 that I will never read again? Shit has got to go.

- Lose weight. I don't 'need' to lose weight. But I feel like crap, and my clothes don't fit properly. I have an extra chin. I have an actual gut. I know this will sound conceited, but I have always had a flat stomach - all my food goes to my butt and thighs, so I didn't get off scot free, but I never had to worry about my stomach. I don't think I need to get 'bikini ready' for the cruise, but I would like my bikinis to fit and to feel good. I am happy with myself inside and out, my happiness does not depend on this goal, but it would be nice to drop a few pounds.

- Train properly for my half marathon. I didn't end up signing up for the triple crown that I mentioned, but I am signed up for a half marathon at the end of April, and to put it bluntly, I am not ready. At all. This will be 4 years after my best, and it always amazes me how far away I am from that best. I'm not going to get any better by sitting on my butt. My goal is to do it under 2 and a half hours, which is not amazing, but whatever. Baby steps. To refresh memories:

2011: 2:37:15
2012: 2:04:48
2014: 2:39:15
2014: 2:33:21
2015: 2:50:36

- Try and eat well. But mainly, no junk food or binges. No candy, no chocolate, no chips, no doritos (sobs), no ice cream, no milkshakes. This might seem drastic, but with all the food I plan to eat on my cruise, I will more than make up for it. So I can handle a couple of months with no 'bad' food. I hope. 

Okay so I know I have a lot of Spring goals. But I feel comfortable with a lot of them because they really shouldn't be too hard. As long as I don't shop - shopping impacts me paying off debt and saving money, as does eating out for lunch. If I don't eat out for lunch and stay away from junk in general, I will eat better and hopefully lose a bit of weight. If I increase the effort of my workouts and runs, I should do better in my half marathon and also lose a bit of weight.

They all go kind of hand in hand, I think.

Anyway. I know this is the most exciting of all posts to ever grace your computer, so here are some recent funnies:









Also wanted to throw it out there that our What's New With You link up is tomorrow if you want to join us!

What's New With You

Happy Wednesday all!

  1. 53 days without soda is awesome! I used to never drink coffee until I started leaving for work at 6:30 am... ugh. But I need to cut it out. And I am right there with you on the alcohol thing ha! I still can't believe you've worked out 39 days in a row. You're a bad ass :) <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  2. I think you've done pretty well with your goals and think 53 days without road is mega awesome, lady! Keep up the great work and thanks for the funnies this morning!

    ReplyDelete
  3. Wow... Now I have the overwhelming urge to go look at all my clothing tags and see what mysterious messages might be on them! (I'll let you know if I find anything noteworthy! LOL!) Good luck on your continued goals!

    ReplyDelete
  4. Love love reading your goals and getting inspired to create my own for spring! Looking forward to linking up tomorrow and seeing more about what's new with you!

  5. These are all great goals! Once we did our no spend month in January, I've really been SO much better about not shopping and getting things without even trying that hard, so that's been really good. Hopefully the same goes for you (and yes to your boss ordering pizza for everyone--you definitely can't turn that down haha)

    ReplyDelete
  6. You know I'm all about goals so if you need any support (particularly with the no buy since I'm on month 3 of mine) you know where to find me :)

    ReplyDelete
  7. You've been absolutely killin' it with the workouts girl! And I couldn't agree with you more on eating out, it's such a money waster plus it's no where near as healthy for you as good ol' fashioned home cooking. Good luck with your spring goals <3

  8. this month and last we totally shit the bed with money. like our credit card bill came and i nearly cried. oh well, YOLO.

    and hey, soda once in a while isn't bad. i have wine EVERY DAY. like, with the intention of getting buzzed and IDGAF lol

    ReplyDelete
  9. I think all of these are great goals and the best thing is that they are all obtainable. You can do it! The hardest thing for me is to give up candy! I seriously LOVE candy!

    ReplyDelete
  10. That Ron Swanson gif could not have been more perfect for your thoughts on soda.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I also hate when I fall into Target. Oops. I used to browse Target, TJ Maxx, wherever, during my lunch break, just for something to do and would take random stuff home almost every time. Spending $ & ending up with more stuff. So, I just stopped going in. Harder to buy things that way. Now I read during lunch, or take a walk, or a nap in my car, because naps are great.

    And those clothes tags had me in stitches. And that pun as unintentional, but terrible now that I'm proofreading this.

  12. Good job! I need to work on some goals too... like no eating out and organizing photos!

  14. Have that soda and don't even feel bad. Seriously. Life's too short to deny yourself the good stuff!
    I love those pictures- I was cracking up about the tag one and the water balloon fail! Haha!
    I need to pay down our debt, too. Ugh. Money is the worst.

    ReplyDelete
  15. "I'll freak out and accidentally fall into Target" Bahahah! Love it! I'm the same way about pop (aka soda). Good luck with all your goals!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Go Kristen for 39 days of working out! Killing it.

    Also your soda paragraph is my favorite ever. Life is too short to cut out every delicious thing, and you know what?! If soda is your vice then I think you're doing just fine. #atleastitsnotdrugs ;)

    ReplyDelete
  17. 53 days of no soda is so amazing! I do try to limit my soda intake but I have never gone so long without it. I do enjoy it every now and then. I hear ya with the shopping. It's so hard not to shop. You have done so well with your goals, I know you can do it!! Now, I'm off to do a goal list for myself.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Seriously, these are AWESOME goals!! I especially love your Ariel quote... "I want moooooore" too! And I am HORRIBLE absolutely horrible about organizing photos! Also, I gave up soda but got a soda stream. It's the bubbles I like not necessarily the sugary deliciousness. So you can add fruit (natural sweetener) and make your own soda with less guilt! It's worked for us! Make today work, Rachel -CubicleCouture

  19. I've never really thought about setting monthly goals. But I do need to save money (especially since I found out I'll be spending about $600 on dental work in the next few months.) So maybe I should start. I'm with you on the lose weight goal. All my weight goes to those same places but I've def developed a bit of a pudge and it is not attractive. womp womp.

    Oh and yay for Spring!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I've been pretty blasé about goals but I'm starting to feel the itch. I might even go back to doing monthly goals, but I'm holding back for now. Don't want to get too crazy. :P (Although I really want to switch my seasons over to the months that you use - it really doesn't feel like Winter anymore and I'm still technically working on those goals, but I don't care at all about them anymore. SPRING!!!)

    Good luck with the healthy living and the money saving! I'm not on track for either of those things right now, but I am all about the decluttering!!! Huzzah for spring cleaning!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Ugh, I know your feelings about soda. I try not to drink it, but if it's on sale and we buy it, I go through Sprite Zero like no tomorrow. I once read that to balance it out, you should drink a glass of water for every soda you consume. So, I always try to do that and not stress about it. I need to lose weight like nobody's business, and I second a massive spring clean out! Purging shit out of the house gives me such a joy, and I look forward to it all the time.

    ReplyDelete
  22. LOLOLOLOLOLOL those GIFs and pics. I love that cat. The GOT is too funny. I hate it when I "accidentally fall into Target on the way home" #daily. I've been wanting to spend so much money... but I think it's maybe... going ok. We'll find out. LOL. I hope to be very buy in March/April.. and maybe, you know... spend less again. LOL I need to type up some kind of goal thing for tomorrow. Yep... XO - Alexandra

    I am shopping my buttocks off in March. Birthday month!

  24. You are going to rock them because I feel like some have something do to with the other!! Definitely trying not to eat out as much at work!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  25. I'm always tempted to get stuff, browsing Amazon doesn't help at all. I'm so impressed by your dedication to go to the gym, it's inspiring me to go there more often :) I'm also tying to eat better and only get wild with food on the weekends. Drinking more water is also something I've been trying to get better at. Good luck with all of your goals!

    ReplyDelete
  26. So nice your boss pays for lunch! I wouldn't say no either. I'm also wanting to workout at least once a week, up to 3. I did pretty good in Jan! Oh yes, photos! I hear ya on the organizing and getting them printed! I make yearbooks for each kid, covering their milestones throughout the year. I take notes on my phone to remember all of them.

    The water balloon gif so funny!

    ReplyDelete
  27. OH my LORRRDDD... I laughed so hard at that water balloon in the back of the head :)
    & that cat. What in the world!?!?!
    I have been bringing my lunch lately at work & I always feel like you would approve :) Save that money! Dentist bills for me to be paid. UGH.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Those funnies are too much! That one cat looks like my cat and that makes it extra hilarious.

    Organize photos is perpetually on my to-do list and it never gets done. I think it's just so overwhelming at this point that even 10 minutes a day seems impossible.

    ReplyDelete
  29. You are great with your goals, girlfriend! Such solid and motivating ones listed here! I've been trying to have no buy months and since the holidays it hasn't been too hard - now I'm tempted with all the brights and florals coming out!

    ReplyDelete
  30. You're doing great with the goals! I know you've set yourself up for good things over the next 100 days before vacation, so stick to your list and keep being so proud of your accomplishments. You're motivating us to be as amazing as you are!

    ReplyDelete
  31. 39 days at the gym is awesome! You are really building that habit! And going without soda that long is really impressive. Good for you! And really, like you said soda isn't the worst vice you could have. And you're drinking water first so that's awesome!

    Those clothing tags are funny! And the koala is adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Those are all great goals! Way to go with 39 days straight of working out! I am the same way when it comes to lunches. I work in the same building as a winery and they have really good paninis and salads and it's so tempting to just order food from there for lunch. I try and at least have leftovers or something in mind for lunch so I'd feel guilty for skipping on that haha.

    ReplyDelete
  33. girl you know i love my diet coke so whatever. i have one a day which is fine if you ask me. two if i'm being super bad haha. these are amazing goals! you got this! you set the bar high though :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. YES to the photo organization. I try to sit down and do it little by little as well because then I'm at least chipping away at it and not quite as overwhelmed ;) I'm in Spring cleaning mode as well. The past few months we've donated/purged SO MUCH but I think I'm in crazy pregnant lady mode where I feel like our whole house needs donated haha!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Such good goals!!
    we are cracking down on our debt too! Trying to to save as much as we can to put on them!!

    ReplyDelete
  36. You're doing great. Better, by most counts, than you probably think you are or are giving yourself credit for. Keep up the awesome work in everything you're doing right, and when it becomes second nature, that's when you can up the effort on the things that take a little bit more discipline, focus, and concentration. You've got this—for spring, the rest of the year, and forever!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Oh my gosh, first of all, those gifs. I was laughing at the cat (thinking, wtf) and then got to the balloon one and laughed for like 5 minutes straight. I am horrible! lol

    It does seem like a lot of goals, but like you said, they do sort of go hand in hand for the most part. I have to definitely focus on saving money too and that involves shopping and eating out less, and generally just doing less. I think I have to live more like a hermit. Which I'm totally fine with, until plans creep up and Joey & I are terrible at saying NO! lol :) anyways, good luck with your goals!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. hey -- all in all you're doing pretty good. It is so hard to give up soda -- as soon as Nadine and I were done, I was like eff that shit, give me some diet coke! and go you for the photo organization. this has been on my to do list since the kid was born, but I have yet to tackle any of it. I think I'll take that advice of setting aside 10 mins to do it every night. Good luck with your goals -- you got this!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I still think that's so awesome how long you've been going on your working out train! I don't think that I could do everyday! I'm with you on the whole feeling the need to purge! We have so much stuff and none of it's organized! If we can find some time in the weekend, maybe we'll actually go about organizing things.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I say two out of four is perfect! Yay! Haha!!!! Ughhhh diet soda. You are my crutch!!!! I am back to the point where if I am out then fine, I can have one. But no more at work or home. It is such a slippery slope! You have lots of wonderful goals this month! I am trying to get back to some type of eating plan, but more sustainable than Whole 30...obviously since that was only for 30 days and now I am kind of just floating out here like hey girl hey. Some days I am good and others I am like fuck it and eat all the things. Oops. Best of luck this month! YOU CAN DO IT!

    ReplyDelete
  41. BUT DORITOS. WHY GOD WHYYYYYYY

    The GOT meme at the end. lolol

    ReplyDelete
  42. Changing eating habits is definitely way harder to me than adding in working out! And I really need to work on savings and paying off debts. Ugh. Ummm I swear I've been to the wildlife park where that koala is wiggling his ears! (The sign in the background looks familiar.) Now I'm sad that the koala I pet didn't do that! Ha!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Your goals are so hardcore! They make mine look simple. I dont think I could commit to three months of no shopping either. Month to month is much more cautious!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Great progress on your goals and I love your goals in general. They basically cover every base of what is important. Seriously impressive. Even if you fall short of a couple of them they are still putting you in a good range. Those memes are hilarious. Especially the water balloon one and the waiter asking you how your food is one. ha~!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Not eating out for lunch saves SO MUCH MONEY - it's insane. I want to get better at improving our savings, too - especially since life with a baby is probably about to be a lot more expensive!

    ReplyDelete
  46. You have been killing it with the workouts! Keep it up pretty lady!

  47. I am with you - bring on spring and ta-ta winter!!! Not eating out for lunch is always such a big money and calorie saver!!!

  48. Decluttering isn't so bad once you just get in there and start! And I am always tempted by the vending machine so I started not carrying any cash except an emergency 20 so I can;t buy anything on a whim - I have to go and get cash for it or go out and grab it on my lunch break!

    ReplyDelete
  49. omg LOL at the 'try on a small' funny! You did so good with your winter goals- I think February should cancel out since it was your birthday month. I should try the timer thing for my photos, I think about how I should do it basically every day and I never make a dent! I've started gaining so much weight too-- I guess I didn't realize how going from a job where I was on my feet constantly to doing a lot of sitting would make a big difference. Buut it sounds like you're on the right track with all of your goals for the next few months- yay spring!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I'm definitely impressed with your photo reorganising. I think I may adopt the ten-minute-approach to some of the goals I've set and failed with!

    I'm getting the decluttering itch too, but I don't have enough time to do the full declutter so I just end up making a mess and then annoying myself and S. Oops.

    Working from home a lot recently has turned me into a total lardass, so I need to do something about that asap. Totally with you on seeing flab in places you've never had flab before - terrifying.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Laughed so hard at the waitress at the restaurant "how's everything" gif. So true. I'm with you on soda-it's pretty much my only vice, and I just can't cut it out so whatever. Haha.

    ReplyDelete
  52. What is it about vending machines? When I've worked somewhere, I eat from them (3x's a day). Now, I work with an iga in the same corridor of our shop, but I don't go 3x's a day and buy bags of chips, candy, granola bars, etc. The call of a vending machine is weird and powerful.

    If your only vice is soda, I say fine. There are a lot worse vices to have. You are doing ridiculously well with your exercise. A soda here and there ain't gonna kill ya.

    ReplyDelete
  53. That koala is adorable! I've been feeling the urge to declutter and purge as well. I recently finished reading Get Rid of Fifty Things, and I feel so accomplished when I fill a box with stuff and drop it off at donations :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. I actually screamed at this: "Also, wanted to check in with my 2016 goals, considering we are now a couple months in." Ah! Why? It just started! Wah.
    I do think that all your spring goals are definitely doable because of the common thread running through them, you little genius :)
    That tumblr thread is fucking hilarious. It remind me of a Hunger Games one I found (I'll text it to you if I find it), where they highlighted a part when Katniss is all like "Ugh, Glimmer, the names they give their kids in that district" and someone's like "you're named after a plant root, Katniss, get off your high horse" !!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Once I gave up soda and I did really well. I didn't drink any for several months ths (whereas before I was drinking 3-4 per day). Then I realized, hey, I like drinking coke! So I drink coke when I want it, which is pretty infrequently. I drink one cup of coffee per day then usually water for the rest of the day. I may have 1-2 sodas per month.

    Good luck with the rest of your goals! Not shopping seem so hard!

    ReplyDelete
  56. You sound like a total abstainer. I'm that way too...I can't have "just a little bit" of something. Moderation isn't really a thing. I gave up all candy two weeks ago and feel so much better.
    As for soda, I'll have maybe one of those small cans at lunch once or twice a week, depending on my mood and motivation. I gave up Doritos cold turkey like 6 years ago. It was the only way to go.
    And yeah, if someone else buys, that's okay!

    ReplyDelete
  57. I have been trying to drink less Diet Coke and while it isn't fun, I know I need to. I am starting with one every other day and hoping to move to only twice a week eventually....

    ReplyDelete
  58. OMG 39 days in a row?! You go girl! I need to set some goals because I have been so bad at like everything right now! Ugh!

  59. I'm linking up tomorrow with my February goals and results, and let me just say that it's great to see I'm not the only one who hasn't been able to keep up with all of my goals. It's not like I want you (or anyone else, for that matter) to fail or anything, but it definitely makes me feel a lot better knowing I'm not the only one who has to post things like "Yeah, that didn't happen." (And, really, I think you did a good job overall. We're always much harder on ourselves!)

    I think you're fabulous for keeping up with your workouts! I think working out consistently can be incredibly difficult sometimes, so working out so many days in a row just blows my mind.

    Good luck with your spring goals! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  60. I totally agree - eating out is the biggest waste of money and is never healthier than what you can make at home no matter how good your intentions! I'm so inspired by your awesome run of exercise! I need to focus on that in the coming months for sure, although these last few weeks have been really good on the exercise front so hoping we can keep it going!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Paying off debt and saving more is a huge one for us too!! I know in the Spring when photography picks back up we'll be able to pay off so much more, so for now I'm trying to enjoy the downtime. Nice job on your no-soda streak!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. you freaking rock with your goals as well as want you want to accomplish this upcoming season! i can't quit diet coke. i give it up every feb and then boom, back on it, march 1. but i don't drink it as much as i used to. i need to quit coffee creamer!

    ReplyDelete
  63. You've been rocking your goals. It looks like a long list, but like you said - it seems like a lot are just stop spending, save, and be healthier. Always good goals.

    ReplyDelete
  64. It's like you're in my head . . . I suppose the lesson here is that you will ALWAYS be doing the above listed goals because they are all still mine in my 40's. I suppose the good news is that we are aware of what we need to work on and while we may fall off the proverbial horse, we get right back on! High five!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Love the savings goals. I recently paid a bunch of stuff off and doubled our savings and it feels fantastic! It helps that I only take one debit card with me when I leave the house. I have the info for one of my credit cards in case of emergency but I don't carry too much money with me. That way I'm not tempted to spend it - it's definitely helped a lot!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Those GIFs... Too funny.
    Congrats on the goals you met. It's not easy to make big changes but you're making progress.
    53 days soda free is impressive.
    My goals here: http://runwright.net/2016/03/01/february-2016-goal-check-in/
    I am trying to declutter and pay off debt and get back to regular rubbing and generally change the world. I am sure I can do it all 😀

    ReplyDelete
  67. I gave up soda for about a year. I wasn't even drinking it that much but it was something that I didn't need and seemed easier to just cut out entirely especially considering how rarely I drank it anyway. I've started drinking it again, like once a month or two maybe (which is about as frequent as before), and I really don't care. And I DO drink coffee and alcohol as well haha so I can't use your same excuse. I do drink tons of water though, way more than anything else so whatever, I can live with that.
    We've eaten out SO much just this week, it's embarrassing. It's been a really weird, really busy week, but still.
    I do the SAME thing with savings. It's really bad. I have no motivation to save extra, even though I should. Now that our finances are going to drastically change in the next couple months, we've started talking about saving serious money. We've always been good about saving, but we've been paying out of pocket for my school which means no debt (yay), but we've really dwindled all the savings we built up when I was working and just haven't been in a position to really build it back up. I know living in DC is going to be really expensive but we definitely need to balance that with saving a bunch of money.

  68. First of all those tags on those clothes... Shut the front door. That can't be real??? I had a lot of comments in regards to your goals and then I saw those and lost focus. Lol. I think your too hard on yourself. I mean working out 39 days in a row is phenomenal. No soda for 70 some days is fantastic. And going to the vending machine 3 times a day is the devil. Lol. I feel your pain in the saving/spending/debt category. We can only do so much right? Unfortunately shopping is the easiest. Lol.

  69. Going that long without soda is awesome - kudos! I need to declutter more too, it never seems to end! I wish I had your motivation for working out! Also, those tags are AMAZING.
