50 Goals for 2017

Published on: Jan 02 2017 by Lillian

2017goals

So I had a big, beautiful post written called Hustle & Grace about how this year I’m focusing on actions not outcomes. And in it, I said that instead of publishing a massive list of goals for the year like I usually do, I am focusing on things within my control rather than externally-influenced outcomes. But to be totally frank, I still have a list of goals, because I’m Lillian. And I still love transparency and accountability.

And I also spilled coffee all over my computer this morning and am waiting to access the cloud backup of the Hustle & Grace blog post and to find out the fate of my computer. So, screw it. Here are some goals.

  1. Admirable! Working on mine now!
    (My health ins alone is around $6k for the premiums alone. By the end of the year, I’ll probably spend closer to $15k including medication & visits)

  3. 6k, but insurance doesn’t pay for medication until I meet it.

  4. Halley Weaver that sucks terribly. my premium is much less ($231 month) but the real saving grace is that most of my costs are paid for by the copay assistance program for enbrel. it counts towards my OOP max so i meet that by the end of feb!

  6. Keep up the habits. Squatting bodyweight is relatively easy, but a bodyweight bench press is a real milestone.
