2015 Goals Progess

December 27th, 2015 at 07:31 pm

Since I ended up getting engaged, moving, getting married and moving again....2015 goals did not go as planned since I had so many life changing events. That being said....I am totally happy that I didn't make my goals! LOL I would much rather have MO, and our puppy, and our new home and have the added debt anyday!

Here are the goals from January 2015 and where I ended up on them:

-Pay in cash for repair and painting of living room, kitchen, bathroom and entry way walls - DONE
-Pay in cash for new garage door - DONE
-Pay in cash for new patio door - DONE (just repaired rather then replaced)
-Keep savings at/above $25K by end of year - This definitely would have happened if we hadn't bought a new house, but since we did, we used savings for the down payment. If we hadn't bought a new house, we would have about $35K in savings.

-Remain Debt free other then mortgage - Since I "inherited" MO's debt when we got married, I/we do now have a loan from my Mom ($13,770 left), store loan ($13,000 left) and a HELOC (about $28,000 left). Hopefully we can attack those and have them paid off within a few years and then be back to just the mortgages.
-Get mortgage balance to under $160K ($166,850 as of 1/1/15) - DONE - Currently at $158,190.00!

-Continue contributing 6% to 401K - DONE
-Restart contributions to ROTH IRA - Didn't do and I don't plan to at this time until we get more debt paid off.
-Research and review allocations of ROTH and make appropriate adjustments - Didn't do, NEED TO!

-Be positive - Still working on this, it is something I work on everyday, I have a hard time with painful, hurtful, sad memories seeping into my brain when I least expect it.
-Work on letting go of the past and embracing the future - See above!
-Lose 50lbs - I am down about 13lbs, need to make this a priority now that we are done with wedding and settled into house
*Sub goals for this are
--Work out at gym at least twice a week - I cancelled gym membership when I moved in April, so that is out
--Quit drinking pop (currently drinking 2 cans a day minimum)Though I saw a vast improvement on this throughout the year, I still fall off the wagon on a consistent basis.

-Find Renter for basement - DONE Renter moved into the basement in April. Now working on either him getting a roommate, or renting out the entire house by March 1, 2016.

    I'd say that you made good progress on your goals overall, even without considering the life events. It's better to have challenging goals and get almost there than to have easy ones that are achieved. Nice work. Now for 2016...
