It might be January 3rd already but it’s never too late to set a few goals for the new year. Having goals helps me to stay focused and make progress. So I took some time to outline my personal and professional goals for 2012.

Personal Goals for 2012

  • Get Healthy! Yes, this involves losing the baby weight as well as the weight I gained after my sister’s death. I know how to do it so I just need to buckle down and focus on eating better and getting active.
  • Mommy time! I am looking forward to meeting more with some other moms I know in the new year. I have learned that spending time with other parents can be a huge support. It’s great to know that you’re not the only one dealing with certain challenges sometimes! W also loves spending time with other little ones.
  • Us time! Since W was born, J and I have not spent as much time together as a couple. This is something I aim to improve upon in 2012.

Professional Goals for 2012 (aka the blog!)

  • Trademark it! This is something that has come up recently with some fellow bloggers and I’m really interested in pursuing the development of Formula Mom as a brand!
  • ShePromotes! You might be wondering what I’m talking about with this one. ShePromotes is my newest adventure that I am on with my blogging friend and co-host, Darcy of Tales From the Nursery. Our goal is to bring you great blog events throughout 2012 and to offer support and guidance to fellow bloggers.
  • Relationships! This year my goal is to develop more long-term, lasting relationships and partnerships with PR agencies and brands. I enjoy working with a variety of companies but would love to develop partnerships that extend beyond the one time review or promotional event.

I figure 3 goals for each is a good place to start. Of course, once you set goals then you need a plan to make them happen. That’s what I need to work on next!

What goals do you have for 2012? Have you written them down and developed a plan of action?

    This year I have also made it a point to make some goals:
    – I WILL lose the baby weight after I give birth to my son. Also will make it a point to stick to a work out plan even when I don’t feel like it. I might even try Weight Watchers.

    – I WILL NOT GIVE UP on breastfeeding as quickly as I did with my daughter (granted with her it was a nightmare).

    – Me and my husband do plan to make it a point to spend more “quality time” together working on our relationship. We have been together for 12 years and in the hustle of daily life we seem to forget about our us time.

    -I want to go back to school. Even if I do take the classes online since my son will be a newborn. I have been meaning to do this for quite a while now but always find an excuse not to do it.

      Joy, I went back to school right before W was born and I’m glad I did it for myself! You will be happy when you do it. Moms are awesome and can get anything done! I’m sure you will have a fabulous 2012!

    My personal goals:
    to figure out a workout plan that will work with my schedule and stick to it

    spend more quality time with my hubby, after 2 kids and both of us having hectic work schedules it gets hard at times

    become more organized around the home

    make more food from scratch and eat healthier

    begin to homeschool my preschool daughter instead of sending her somewhere

    find a full time teaching position instead of being an aid
