Late Goals of 2015...!!!

Hey Y'all,

So I feel like I'm already doing better with my blog. I know its only been a few days since I made that pledge to myself to start writing more. I think I'm off to a good start. This would be my third post. I hope to continue this trend that I seem to be on. 

Anyway, as many of you know of you know that this year is coming to a close. Unfortunately some of the goals I made for myself never came to pass. I really ought to write these things down more often so that way I can reference them on a day to day basis. If you'd like to see these goals, you can find them here

Some of the ones I did accomplish were my goals to read more, saving some money, and trying to live life to the fullest. I have been spending a lot of my free time reading. I love to read. I love getting lost in a a good book. I also love using Goodreads as a way to track my reading progress for that year. I am currently eleven books away from my goal of reading twenty-five books. I'm almost there. I also did start to try budget my money better and save more. It's a lot harder than it sounded. I'm just lucky I have people in my life who I can talk to about it and help me keep on track. I'm nowhere where I'd like to be but at least I have a nice start. Once I find a new job, I will be able to take another look at my budget and see how things will fit into my finical life. I also am allowing myself to live a little. I don't have a lot of money so trying to do some of these things is kind of hard but its not entirely impossible either. I just have to work at it. 

I wanted to add some goals to my goal list. One I want to add is to Be Healthy. To me this means taking the time to workout, eat better, and using an app on my phone to help me track it. I'm just starting out so I know I won't make a huge difference in my life. I just know the earlier you start caring about yourself, the better chances of keeping those trends later in life are usually much higher than vise versa. Currently I am trying to get at least thirty minutes of being active every day. I plan to accomplish this goal through tracking my steps with an app. 

I hope to keep up with my goals and try to push the ones I can't complete this year into next year. I still want to do those goals. I just know that some of them aren't possible for me right now. Hopefully that will change as I find a better job and start to pay off my debt. 

I'll keep everyone up to date on my progress for the rest of the year. I'd love to hear from others about what goals they set and which ones they have come to work on. If you have any, feel free to comment below.
