2010 Fitness and Finance Goals

January 8th, 2010. Filed under: Finance & Fitness Fridays.

I don’t make resolutions, but I do have goals.  I tried to find a post about my 2009 goals, but couldn’t.  Maybe I didn’t let you all in on those goals. 

I’ve met two of my big financial goals.  I’ve paid off two whoppers. A credit card and a loan.  My goal for this year is to pay off my personal line of credit by the end of the year.  That’s $9,915 and then I’m debt free. 

I also plan to increase my emergency fund along the way.  I will soon have two months living expenses covered.  I want to see that increased to at least three months by the end of the year.

One thing that has helped was my change from working a two week Baylor plan to working five nights a week.  That has been good for both my finances and my health. 

My one regret is that I no longer have much me time.  I only have Saturday and Sunday off and anyone who works nights knows that it is the equivalent to only one day off.  The first day off is wasted because you’ve worked all night and are too tired to do much of anything.  Then you have to go to bed and sleep.  The next day is your day off.  The following day?  Not much except going back to bed early afternoon so you can get up and go back to work.

That leaves little time to spend with my friends out in cyberspace.  I’m still working on getting that one figured out.    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Now it’s time to confess.  I didn’t do nearly as well with my fitness goals.  I didn’t regress, but I haven’t made much more than snail-like movements towards those goals.  I’ve been treading water and the end of the pool looks so far away.

Next Friday we’ll go into my fitness goals for 2010.  The motivation is there, boys and girls.  I’ve something in the works that will keep me on task.  Maybe I’ll be able to share that by next Friday.  See you then.
