Personal Growth Goals

I changed up the way I do New Year's Resolutions this year and decided to attack each month with a specific goal instead of a big one for the year that I would definitely forget.  I organized life in January, in February I got my fitness goals going (and have been sticking to them ever since) and for March/April and now into May, I have been working on simplifying my life.  I am so far loving these goals and look forward to working some fun ones in May/June with my focus more going to creative outlets like photography/videography and such.

What also came with this goal setting, without really planning for it, was some personal growth goals that I've been accomplishing with the help from my friends. Here's a look at what we've done:

1.  Budgeting

My friend, Alynne agreed to give us a presentation on budgeting.  She came super prepared with a powerpoint and we had some great discussions about how we manage finances.  The things that stuck for me was how accountability and keeping records is necessary in order to recognize patterns and make a change.  Since the presentation in February, she has been sending us emails with tips.  Love that girl!



I just wanted to share a couple more ressources that I have looked into that I thought I'd share with you:
Smart Cookies: (They used to have tons of great info, but now they charge...but the courses look really interesting)
Dave Ramsey: I love the concept of  what he teaches and there are some great ressources on his page.  This also comes highly recommended from my blogging friend, Sarah.


2. Vision Boards

My friend Carmen is awesome at organizing great events and when she suggested we do some vision boarding, I was all in.  She set it up as one of our Splurge group events and I am so very happy that I got a chance to sit in on a session and create.  We did this for March and had a Clarity Coach come in, Jolene Watson: Clarity Coaching Saskatoon- Vision Board Workshop

I loved talking about personality types in jobs and relationships and then making the link to that to our goals and vision boards.  This was a great follow up session to our February budgeting.





3. Healthy Changes

Our recent goal has been making healthy changes to our habits and we have yet to do a session, but I have some great ressources on standby.
My sister and cousin are Dietitians, so I've been referencing them for ideas here and they've agreed to do a healthy eating session with us- I just have to figure out what that should look like.

In the meantime, I have created a FB group (Temptation Island- ha) with my besties to encourage each other to make the changes we feel we need to do.  Then I got us all copies of 50 Ways to Soothe Yourself Without Food along with the workbook Eat, Drink and Be Mindful.  We're all currently working on little changes and then hopefully near the end of summer we can sit down and Lea and Kyla can teach us some stuff.

4. Body Image

My last goal ties into the Healthy Eating goal and I hope to cover it after we get our healthy eating in check.  Lea and Kyla both recommended this documentary (on Netflix) - Embrace - and there are some workshops you can do on it.  Having a healthy a body image is super important to me, but becomes more important to me raising a girl.  So stay tuned for these last two.


Other ideas I have for things to work on:
Volunteering
Creativity
Learning

Do you have any other ideas I can add to this list?
