18 Goals for 2018

It's the most wonderful day of the year! I love the beginning of January for all the newness and freshness and wonderfulness of it. Something about a brand new year with so much potential always motivates me and inspires me. So on that note, I'm going to share my 2018 goals with you all! Although seriously, this whole as many goals as what year it is thing, not going to keep working for me for much longer. I think I'll have to rethink things when I hit 2020. But until then, enjoy my goals for this upcoming year.

1. Put $2,000 extra on the mortgage
2. Put 15% of my income into retirement savings
3. Read 15 books
4. Donate my hair again
5. Do some front yard landscaping
6. Eat dinner at the table together at least 8 times a month
7. Run my 7th 5k
8. Go away for our 10th anniversary
9. Take a yoga class
10. Invite a different family/couple over for dinner at least once a month
11. Replace sun room
12. Complete the Couch to 5k program (FOR REAL GUYS)
13. Visit the Grand Canyon
14. Knit myself a pair of socks
15. Replace cleaners and personal hygiene items with greener options
16. Organize and run the second annual Rejuvenate Retreat
17. Have a vegetable garden
18. Repair my ring from my mom

Let's see how I do this year! Maybe for once I will actually complete 100% of them? That may be wishful thinking but you never know. 2018 could be a year full of surprises.

If you have made any goals, feel free to share them in the comments. We can keep each other accountable throughout the year.


  1. I want to drink at least 6 cups of water/day. That's my goal for starters...more to come!
    Also, let me know if you want me to come up with a consequence for you if you don't complete 12. ;)

  2. That's a good goal! I am also trying to drink more water, maybe we could be water buddies.

    And you think consequences will work better than rewards? Because I thought I'd try the reward system again first, since it mostly worked for me.

  3. So nice to see a post from you! Those goals seem achievable to me, and you did well in 2017. I'm at loose ends here - after moving in October and having surgery and being trapped in these arctic tempeatures! Need to get my act together.

    1. I'm so happy you're still reading! I've been such a slacker at posting, life has just been really busy. Maybe I'll get around to sharing more in the 2018.

      Did you just move homes or new city too? I'm sorry to hear about surgery, I hope you're recovering well. And yes, these temperatures are brutal! I'm ready for some cold that doesn't hurt to breathe in!
