May 2010 Goals

I am recommitted to consistently making monthly goals since I have been pretty sporadic with them thus far in 2010. I only have three goals this month, but for me, it's about quality, not quantity:
  1. Make May a low-spend month! I plan to make this a low-spend month by cooking most of my meals, packing lunch and snacks on work/class days and minimizing all non-essential spending. Mother's Day is right around the corner, so I will have to spend money on Mother's Day gifts, but that is the only shopping I plan to do for the month outside of grocery shopping.
  2. Be productive in personal endeavors! I have quite a few personal endeavors I work on at any given time, but for this month, I plan to focus my energy on: this blog, tasks for the nonprofit I am involved with, and my spring semester class which wraps up during the month of May. If I find myself with any 'spare' time, I'd like to work on learning how to use Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, which I had been doing on the weekends for a while, but stopped for some inexplicable reason.
  3. Exercise! Whether I go to the gym with a buddy, do an exercise DVD at home, or dance around my apartment (hey it burns calories so it counts!), I've got to step up my exercise regimen. I'm going to make a concerted effort to go try going to the gym before work, but I so love sleeping until the last possible moment in the mornings...so we'll see how that goes.
I plan to have a positive, productive month and I hope you do as well!

I love the financial goal, I may steal that one from you.

And I too dance around my house, so it does count as exercise! I don't know if you have any bike trails around where you live, but that's a neat way to exercise. My mom has recently picked up that hobby :)

@fallingintofavor Biking is such a great idea! But I don't currently own a bike :- ) But I may try some hiking trails in my area. I'm not much of a jogger or biker, but I love walking and have always wanted to try hiking.

Let me just put a plug in here for racquetball. I play with friends on Mondays. Before we know it, two hours have gone buy and we've burned a thousand calories. Racquetball is the kind of exercise that doesn't feel like exercise. It's just a lot of fun. :)

@Keith Morris Racquetball sounds like a good option! I'm always down for exercise that doesn't feel like exercise.
