It’s that time of year again: goal-setting time!
I love setting goals for myself””always have, always will! They keep me accountable, motivated, and, of course, I feel so good when I accomplish them. That said, here are my goals for 2014!
Give birth to a healthy baby
My #1 goal for 2014 is to give birth to a healthy baby. Eating right, exercising, getting quality sleep, not stressing about the small stuff”¦ anything and everything to give this baby the best start possible.
Have a fit pregnancy
I want to stay active all 9 months of my pregnancy. Of course, I’d love to CrossFit right up until my due date, but we’ll see how feasible this is as the months progress. I also have a current goal of doing 10 pull-ups per week, but again we’ll see how that goes in the coming months. I just want to stay as active as possible for as long as possible.
Turn our guest room into the most adorable nursery ever
So long guest room. Hello, nursery! I’ve been pinning nursery ideas on Pinterest for weeks now, and I can’t wait to redo this room of our house!
Separate work and home”¦ for real
Ever since I started CNC almost 6 years ago, I’ve struggled with separating work and home life. I go through periods of time where I feel like I have a good balance between the two, but then I find myself checking my email in the middle of the night or waking up on Sundays at an ungodly hour just to get a jumpstart on the coming week’s work. Basically, my mind is totally and utterly consumed by work, so it takes away from other important parts of my life. Things just get unbalanced and ultimately make me an unhappy person.
A few things I plan to do to help me achieve this goal:
- Work five days per week with two days totally off
- Stop checking email at 5:00 PM during the work week
- Limit time on social media to 30 minutes in the evenings
Finish book #2 without having a mental breakdown
Book #2? Say whaaaat?! Yep, that’s right. I’m a crazy lunatic and agreed to write another book. Please pray for me. Details soon!
Slow down; stop and smell the roses
I’m the first to admit that I don’t have an off button, and I know that I sometimes miss living in the present because I’m so focused on getting to the next thing””whether it’s tackling an item on my To Do list or planning for the arrival of Baby Haupert. I have trouble simply enjoying the act of doing something (and the little things in life), so I want to be more present in 2014. Basically, slow down and take it all in.
