the unnatural mother

embracing mother-ing and all its glory – from wet diapers, spit-ups, tantrums to first smiles, hug-a-bugs and sweet cuddles

I never made any resolutions. I was always too lazy to think of meaningful ones and even if I could think of any, I didn’t like pressuring myself to stick to them. I guess I didn’t want to sit down and realize that I wasn’t able to achieve any of them. But next year would be different. For 2014, I might just make some. I want to feel accomplished when I sit back on this day next year and read this post. I want and need a sense of purpose this year.

These are my SMART goals for the year:

  1. I need a financial goal. I’d like to believe that I am earning enough (to support my growing family) and that I am blessed with the opportunity to satisfy our needs and, at the same time, save a little for the future. Thus, I have written the amount I should have saved by June 2014 and Dec 2014 and hid it under this keyboard.
  2. Make date time with hubby more regular. It should be a once-a-week thing or at the very least, twice a month. A simple dinner or coffee out should suffice. 18 date nights should be logged.
  3. Make time for ME – even if it means walking around the mall along for 2-3 hours, that’s okay. At least, 10 dates with myself should be made this year.
  4. Exercise. I plan to take boxing or if not, bike in our stationary bike at least twice a week. For this to be a successful resolution, I should have had at least 35 exercise sessions in the year to come.
  5. Donate more clothes. My closet shouldn’t be bulging by the end of 2014.
  6. Throw away things I don’t use or need. I still don’t know how to measure this.
  7. Eat more healthy. I don’t drink softdrinks or coffee regularly but I need to it more vegetables. A meal of salad substituted for dinner must be made at least once a week. I should have done this 30 times in 2014.
