Goals are hard


Goals can be hard. I know this because I have set so many for myself and haven’t met them. I get bored or tired or lazy and they just go the wayside. They say having a partner helps keep goals, but who really wants to participate in my plethora of goals I set for myself. As a result, I think I’m going to start a list here, in my blog. That way I can keep up with them and you, the readers, can help keep me accountable. Here goes nothing:

  1. Fitness
    -Walk at least a mile at least three times a week. This can get hard for me as life gets busy, but it’s something I want to stick to. At some point I’ll increase this, but for now three times a week sounds good.
    -Stick to my calorie goal daily and actually chart things. This gets frustrating sometimes because life gets crazy or I go out to eat or something makes it so I don’t want to log. That’s the only way to see habits and correct them though, so that’s what I’m going to do
  2. Blogging
    -Get organized with set posts and times. Right now I have four different categories I want to do weekly: obsessions, goals, weekly update and a weekend update. I’ve set times and days for each of those, so I’m hoping that will lead to organization.
    -Hit 25 followers. I’m only at 10, so don’t judge too much. I’m trying to grow my followers so 25 is the next milestone I want to hit. I will do that by blogging consistently and using social media.
    -Write a guest post for Young & Twenty.
  3. School
    -Bleh. Especially during the summer this is not a fun one for me. I want to get A’s in my three classes for Summer II.

Those are my three categories and goals for now. I know setting and reaching goals are hard, so what are your suggestions? How do you meet your goals? What are some goals you’re currently trying to reach? Comment below!

  1. You have clearly defined goals- which is the crucial starting point! I would recommend *really* focusing on one or two goals at a time. Stretching yourself thin just ends up tiring you out and discouraging you. Your fitness and school goals go well together! Exercising for 20-30 minutes is a great study break, so they are easily achievable!
     As for your blogging goals, I found writing posts ahead of time to be helpful. Having them done a week or so ahead helps you keep a good pace. As for followers- they will come! Comment on other blogs, interact with other bloggers, and perhaps invite people to do guest posts.
    Good luck with all of your goals!!

      1. In terms of my blog, I’m trying to increase my daily views- I don’t have a set number right now, just trying to gage where I am at!
        In other areas, I’m hoping to get my daily run time to 30 minutes from 25! It will probably take until mid-August, but that’s okay. I’m also attempting the 3 litre water challenge- attempting is the key word 🙂
