Review of November 2019 Goals

Monthly goals are hit or miss for me.  I have good intentions at the beginning of the month then things sometimes go south.  My last Monthly goal post was in August How's that for consistency? 

Oh well, I still want to keep trying to do better and keep things on track. 

  • Keep dining out to $150 $285.11 Spent 
  • Track grocery spending this month $642.85 Spent
  • Continue to build my eBay business (Here are my 2019 goals)
  • Rebuild  short-term savings account to $1000 Hovering at $865 $1070.00


  • Weekly dinner with grandkids, daughter, and son in law Yep!
  • Have two date nights with my mister One date only 
  • Touch base with my sons with text and or phone calls. Done! Chatted with each a couple of times.


  • Walk at least 2 continuous miles 4-5 times a week. Started this last week about 2-3 times a week.
  • Lose 8 pounds  Ehh..... Not so much. 
  • Strength training at gym 2-3 times a week We have a gym membership through husbands' work but have not been for MONTHS!  Yes, I started back to the gym the last week in November.  

  • eBay Slow and steady

  • Spend time with a friend (time to use that Disney Pass) Accomplished a couple of times. 
  • Continue to research paternal side of the family I have not spent but a few minutes on it.  
  • Find a hobby that explores the creative side but does not break the bank :-)  Gardening, rock painting? Just not enough time in the day!

Here is to staying on track with a manageable list of goals this month.  We did get our two-mile walk in this morning.  The weather has finally changed and it was in the 70's which made for a much more enjoyable walk.  

I am pretty sure I need to upgrade my walking shoes, after this morning's walk my knees were hurting.  I  am currently icing them down to reduce the pain and inflammation.  I had both knees replaced in 2016-2017 and I sure don't want to do that again.

Do you set monthly goals?  Are they helpful or do they stress you out?
