January 2017 Goals

by Mindy @ Just A One Girl Revolution on January 2, 2017

in Goals and Challenges

Only two days into 2017 and I am fired up for this year. I know, that’s an easy attitude to have this early in the game. I don’t care, because I feel like this year is going to be amazing. Even more, I am determined to put in the work and make it amazing. Yesterday, I wrote about my goals for the year. Although I haven’t entirely committed to monthly goals in the past, I know the power in that approach. Each month, my plan is to re-evaluate my goals for the year and my progress. From that, I will create monthly goals that push me towards the (both literal and figurative) finish line.


My primary focus for this month is to get back to a consistent fitness routine. It’s been a sporadic, at best, priority over the last year and if a PR at the Chicago Marathon is a main goal, I need to get back on track. The important thing will be a focus on consistency, while not doing too much too soon. I know my body well enough to know that’s a recipe for injury and I am determined to keep my body healthy this year!

My health and fitness goals for January 2017:
+ Lose 5 pounds
+ Swim 3 times
+ Bike 100 miles
+ Run 30 miles
+ Take 6 yoga classes
+ Finish Level 1 of BODYSHRED
+ Average 10,000 steps a day (a total of 310,000 steps)

My business and finance goals for January 2017:
+ Pay off $500 in debt
+ Post 12 blog posts
+ Rewrite my about me page (according to that page, I’m 30 years old, so it’s been awhile)
+ Increase social media followers by 5%

My personal development and life goals for January 2017:
+ Read 6 books (I started Amy Schumer’s The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo last night which I’m loving so far!)
+ Read the Gospels
+ Write thank you notes for my Christmas gifts
+ Floss daily

Tomorrow, I return to the real world after eleven days off for the holidays, and as much as I loved the staycation, I’m ready to get back to a routine. Can someone remind me of that when my alarm goes off bright and early? It may be a rude awakening. I know myself well enough to know that I thrive best when I’ve got a schedule to follow, and I think that will be extraordinarily important as I work towards my goals for the year!

What is ONE thing you want to accomplish this month?

THANK YOU NOTES!!! I put it off last week, and now there is no excuse, because if they don’t get out this week they may as well not be written.

We just celebrated on Sunday, so that bought me a little time – that said, my goal is still to have them done this week!

I love that you broke your goals up in to monthly goals! Floss daily! That is a great one.

Thanks, Jessica! I used to be SUPER consistently with flossing and it’s a habit I’ve fallen away from lately, but I need to get back to it! Happy 2017!
