One Little Goal // 2

a thousand threads
In the spirit of honesty and accountability… I have to admit that I did slip once or twice on my January goal.  What can I say?  It’s been a long, cold month and sometimes a girl just needs some Starbucks.  But overall, I’m happy to report that I really have cut down.  In fact, if we do a little math, I was having one tall cup, at about $3 and 120 calories a pop, at least 3 days a week when I set my goal to cut back… and even when I include the two cup slip, that comes out to $30 and 1200 calories in four weeks… which I know doesn’t seem like much, but think about those numbers over the course of a year.

Guys that’s $360 and over 14,000 calories… otherwise known as 4 lbs.

I mean I know it’s not as simple as all that (I’ve probably been replacing those calories with something else) but when you add it all up, it really can make a difference.

So, in the spirit of using small steps to accomplish great things, I thought I’d tackle something different this month.  And since the idea is to eventually work toward some bigger goals here, my February goal is to write one sentence a day that has nothing to do with work or the blog.  My goal is to do a little journaling.

It doesn’t matter what the sentence relates to… it can be whatever just happens to be on my mind.  The idea is just to get that pen to paper and see what comes out.  And already I can tell that this particular goal is going to be good for me.

Who knows, maybe at the end of this month I’ll even share a few of my sentences!  (haha a whole other level of rambling from me… I’m sure you’re stoked).

So, until then, tell me… what are some of your goals?  Big, small, or anywhere in between?

P.S. Catch up on January’s goal here.

    I think this is a genius way to stay focused each month! I’ll admit, my January goal was mostly just “survive”, and I don’t know that February will be all that different, but once this big work project is done, I’m hoping I can be more thoughtful about my other goals!

    [...] the words… I love to write. But journaling is my weakness — it’s telling that my series on small goals wandered off into the dark land of bloggy purgatory right about the time I decided to set my sights [...]
