Moving Forward: Goal Reassessment



If you have been following me you know that I am a very goal oriented person. I post monthly goals, set yearly blog goals, set personal yearly goals, and I wrote a detailed post on setting your own goals. Unfortunately, my goal digger status has been revoked.

I really should have sat down a couple of months ago when I realized I was having trouble reaching my goals. Somehow I thought I would magically catch up to my six month goals after falling behind for four months. 

Take note: If you are consistently failing at your goals, it is time for a reassessment.

Yearly Blog Goals

Reach 5k followers on Pinterest: Pinterest growth is always slow but I am already a little over halfway there.
Averaging 10k pageviews: I have drastically reduced how often I am writing so this will be difficult. I think it might still be attainable if I start writing consistently again.
Reach 10k followers on Instagram: I can't believe I was able to reach this already. My new goal is to reach 20k!
Earn at least $5,000 for the year: When I had set this goal, I was making a large sum from sponsored posts and had thought about selling my own product. I haven't had the time. A more accurate goal would be around $2,000
Develop a free resource library for my readers: I can't figure out a way to do this until I move to Wordpress and I am not ready to do that yet.
Streamline my blog content:I actually don't want to do this anymore. A lot of popular bloggers will tell you to niche down, but I am not convinced.

Yearly Personal Goals

Pay off medical bills: I can't believe it but we did it. We paid all of the bills from the NICU and my C-Section.
Earn $5,00 in extra income: Again, if I am lucky I might be able to earn $2,000.
Lose 40 pounds: I have gained weight this year. I'd have to lose 60 to get to my goal weight. Because of some of my food struggles, weight loss is hard for me. While I'd love to lose the entire 40 pounds, I think 25 pounds might be more realistic.
Complete a 5K: I'll be honest, I don't want to do this. But I can use the training as a way to make sure I exercise.
Do Whole 30 Twice: I have already completed Whole 30 once, I have no doubt I will do it again. I am thinking about doing it in September or October. 
Try something new each month: This has been a struggle not because I don't want to, but because I don't have a lot of time. However, I have managed to so far. 

May Goals

Month of me: This didn't happen. I'd say I had a few days sprinkled throughout the month. My husband had so much work that I just couldn't get away very often. My mother did allow me to have a bit of time to myself which was nice. 

June Goals

Try something new: For this month's try something new I am going to make myself uncomfortable. Yes you read that right. I don't talk about it often on here or really anywhere but I have an unhealthy relationship with food that goes back to my childhood. It is really keeping me from being able to succeed with my weight loss. I know that is going to take more than a month to get these issue resolved but I need to put myself out there and at least get started. 

Return to the gym: I haven't been in over a month. I'd like to set a goal of going once a week.

How have you been doing with your yearly goals? I'd love to know.
