It's time to set goals for July! I only accomplished half my goals last month. Let's see if I can do better this time around.
1. Spend no more than $400 for transportation costs this month.
This is from Krystal's Transportation Challenge for July and includes gas and bus fares. It could be tough, given the current high cost of gas and our trips to the house. I'm a little nervous about this, but we'll see how it plays out.
2. Lose 5 pounds.
Hey, if I'd managed to lose 3 pounds last month I'd just have to lose another 3 this month. This is all because I want to be 120 pounds in time for my birthday at the beginning of September. I'm currently 129 pounds, 5'4" with a tiny frame. I don't want to be a size 2 or anything. I just want to flatten my tummy and firm up a bit.
3. Go to the gym at least once.
How hard could this one be? It's not like I'm saying 'work out every day' or 'run a marathon'. I just haven't been a single time since, um, December. I'd probably be more successful with Goal #2 if I'd go to the gym. Right?
4. Post at least 27 times in July and post at least one book review.
That's one post per day, except on Shabbat. I did fine last month, so I think I can do this. I also managed the book review last month, so it's not out of reach.
5. Learn to upload pictures to my blog.
I actually have to find the box for my digital camera in order to be able to get the pictures from my digital camera to my computer first, so this could be a little challenging (given the number of boxes I might have to go through to find the box the camera came in). But I want to continue learning how to do new things and this certainly qualifies. Maybe if I do this, I'll finally get around to figuring out my iPod.
That's one more goal than I set last month and I'm pleased with these goals. I think they're challenging without being overwhelming, so let's leave it there.
