I seriously can’t believe it’s already December! First of all, how crazy that Thanksgiving is over already! And we’re only a few weeks away from Christmas! Nuts, right? Now that I’m adjusting to the fact that we’re almost at 2016, I’m full of ideas and plans for the new years. I’m excited to create a new, lasered focus for my blog and shop, and get ready to buy a house with Dave! My December goals are definitely reflecting my lofty plans for the new year!
Let’s start with a recap of my November Goals:
Start jotting down ideas for the wedding-planning e-book and create a basic outline. Yes! And I’m super excited about it! I wrote out a general outline, started working on some specific sections, and started brainstorming ideas for cover and page design.
-Write a new mission statement and tagline for my blog. Unfortunately, I didn’t do so well on this one. As you can see, I removed my former tagline from my blog header. That was the only step I made though, and I need to get inspired this month and do so!
-Create a budget for Christmas and begin Christmas shopping. Done! We actually got a fair amount of our Christmas shopping done, and have just a few loved ones left! -Decorate for Christmas! Done! I’m definitely not about to fall behind schedule on my Christmas shopping!
Meet my food and fitness goals each week, with the exception of Thanksgiving week. I got into a really good groove of working out and eating mostly healthy. Of course, I fell (and fell hard) out of that groove over Thanksgiving. I’m definitely proud of how I did during most of November, so I’m hoping to keep that up during December. I found some awesome workouts that I’m super excited about, so I’m excited to keep at them!
Overall, I thought I did pretty well in the month of November! I definitely felt like I made more progress in my personal life than I did with my blog and shop, but I plan to put a lot more energy into the latter in the month of December to get ready for the new year. I want to enter 2016 with a new, lasered focus on what I hope to accomplish.
-Create a business plan for 2016 for my blog and shop.
-Do a visual audit of my blog and make necessary changes (including sidebar, About Me page, etc.)
-Create three new products for the Etsy shop.
-Make a sincere effort to cut back on all spending that isn’t holiday related.
-Do some reorganizing to make our apartment more livable and organized. Specifically clean up my office area and the breakfast bar.
-Set aside anything blog and work related to give my full attention during the holiday to Dave and family.
