Apartment Goal Setting

I went for a walk last night with one of my favorite people on the planet: my roommate Amy. We were talking about different things we wanted to change and work on. After realizing that we had similar things in common under those categories, we decided to set some goals together. So check out what we've decided to do:
1. Healthy Eating
a.) No eating after 8:30 p.m.
b.) Eating at least 4 servings of fruits/vegetables
c.) Only can spend $2 eating out a week---if not used, can be saved week to week.
i.) Only buy things on your list--only things you need--ingredients for a meal.
d.) Must make a new meal weekly--one we've never tried before.
i.) Eat 2 meals a week together.
2. How to be fitt---Let's get physical, physical
a.) CARDIO five times a week--40 minutes
b.) 5 day abs EVERY DAY at 9:30 p.m.--except for Sunday
c.) Bedtime at 10:30 p.m.
d.) Wake up at 6:30 (or 7:30) Amy will be easing into 2c and 2d.
3. Time Management
a.) Facebook--15 minutes twice a day
b.) Monday-Friday: No hulu--no internet tv, movies, youtube, etc
c.) Constructive ways to fill your newly found time--read a book, get homework done early, quality scripture study, write in your journal, write a letter, service, etc.
4. Churchy goodness
a.) Temple attendance--once a month
b.) Be ten minutes early to church to read the scriptures/mentally prepare.
c.) Scripture study
i.) Personal in the morning (at least 15 minutes).
ii.) Roommate in the evening. After abs. 1 chapter.
d.) Roommate prayer after scripture study.
e.) Go to FHE every Monday.
5. Roommate/social
a.) Every Thursday night we have to invite at least one other apartment over.
b.) Dance party? Book club?...something hilarious TBD

Anyway I just got so stoked about all of these goals because I've just been feeling like I haven't been progressing very much lately and I feel like making these tweaks will be super helpful to be more effective with my time, be happier, spiritually in tune, and still be able to have a solid good time. I'm just excited about all of this and felt like posting it. Happy Halloween!


  1. I'm loving these goals and will implement a few of them into my life and habits. thanks sorella!

  2. Wow! That is a lot of change. All great things. Good thing you have each other to keep you going. I'm glad you put some fun in there too.
