summer deals! (15)

At the beginning of every semester, I like to create a list of goals that I hope to accomplish by the end of the semester. It is my hope that by sharing the list with you, it will hold me accountable and I will work harder to achieve the results I want. Last semester I came up with 15 goals for 15 weeks of the semester.

I feel like 15 goals really set the bar too high for me and I wasn’t able to focus and grow in each area as I wanted too. In result, this semester I am only setting 5 goals for my self so I really can hold my self accountable. So I guess that means I am setting 5 goals for 5 months!

Since my spring semester started this week, it is time to decide my goals…

  1. GetRENT (5) Back in Shape. Put down that Oreo, lace up your Nike’s and turn your FitBit on because it is time to get serious girl! This summer I have the amazing opportunity to go to Hawaii. I would love to shed a few pounds and get back to my goal weight. I really need to make healthier food choices with my meal plan and exercise at least 3 times a week. Hawaii Count Down: 26 weeks! I can do this.
  2. RENT (10)Earn a Higher GPA. I need to work harder and, study harder. Last semester, I got a 3.29 GPA. I got A’s and B’s and thankfully no C’s.  I need to spend more time studying and reading the text book. Just because I don’t have homework due, doesn’t mean I do not have to do anything for the course- I always have trouble with this concept.  (Bonus: It would be amazing to get on the Dean’s List)
  3. RENT (6)Double My Traffic on My Blog- Over winter break, I spent a lot of time brainstorming and growing my blog audience. I finally got back into the grove of things and have been posting at least once a week. All my social media accounts have doubled and I would love to see the page views keep going up. I have meet so many amazing bloggers these past few weeks and it has really given me motivation to keep going.
  4. RENT (8)Stay on a Tighter Budget- I have been very blessed with the fact that my mom helps me keep track of my credit card bills. But since she does, I don’t keep as close of an eye on my spending as I should. After helping her out over break, I realized how much money I was spending and how I should be saving instead. Recently I downloaded the ‘WellSpent” app because I heard it works great for keeping track of your budget so I am interested to see if this app will help out.
  5. RENT (9)Grow in my Faith- Through out my college experience, I have really grown in my faith but I would love to keep going and gain a stronger relationship with God. Last semester I joined a group where we met once a week and read a devotional book. My plan is to continue reading the book each morning before my day begins. Also, I will be doing a new segment that I just implemented on my Instagram called #worshipwednesday, where I will spend time journaling in my Bible and then post a picture!

Well there you have it! These are the 5 goals I hope to accomplish by the end of the semester. What kind of goals did you set for your self this semester or year?

    I’ve been trying to stick to FitBit goals, as well. We’ll be hiking in Alaska this summer, and the last thing I want to do is hold the group back when I can’t make it up the side of the mountain. Have to work on that cardio!

    Oh FitBit … such a great reminder of what goals we are setting for ourselves, such great encouragement when you are reaching those goals, but such a big reminder when you are not. I’ve been teased a little bit for having and wearing a FitBit (and upgrading to the Charge instead of just the Flex), but for me it is a constant reminder of the goals I have set for myself. I have the goal of running the Walt Disney World Half Marathon next January … I guess that means I better start running! Great goals!! Good luck with school!
