June 2011 Goals

I haven't made monthly goals in a while. I also haven't been productive in a while. Coincidence? Maybe. After seeing the awesome goals some of my favorite bloggers have been making, I decided to jump back on the goal-setting wagon. My plan for June is as follows:
  • Write for at least 30 minutes every day. Write something new or work on revisions - both will count towards this goal.
  • Read for at least 30 minutes every day. Books, journals and magazines count. The Internet does not.
  • Post one recipe per week on my blog. Cooking rut, be gone!
  • Continue to weight train with Sonnie twice a week on our lunch break. I pay for a membership to the Rec Center, so I really should be using it. Also, muscles. But mostly? I want to unlock the Gym Rat badge on foursquare. (Shut up.)
  • Finish cleaning, de-cluttering and organizing all our wordly possessions and material goods. Didn't you hear? Summer Cleaning is the new Spring Cleaning.
  • Finally put together my damn roller derby scrapbook. I have a ton of newspaper clippings, bout programs and other assorted memorabilia from my derby days. I'm not much of a scrapbooker but I'd like to organize this box of stuff to better relieve my glory days.
  • Make an appointment with the lady doctor and convince him to give me an IUD. I will blog more about this later, I'm sure. Consider yourself warned. 
Getting all those things done will make me feel pretty awesome about June. Oh, and for the first two goals I am stealing/adapting an idea from Raquelita (aka Historiadora on the Run). I made a new Google Calendar named "Goals" and at the end of each day I will enter how much time I spent writing and reading. It's not quite a gold sticker, but it should get the job done. Accountability, ahoy!
