Insane Goals for 2012- Jan End Review

February 2, 2012

It’s time to review my goals that I made for January.

I’m still struggling with weight lost after losing 1 kg over the holidays. I am hoping for to hit 60 by April.

I have joined a 21 day weight lost challenge and hopefully it will help motivate me better in being accountable for my own weight lost.

I’m crossing off the items that I have completed so far from the list below and here’s a summary of things that have been done this month


1. Increase revenue on my blog- Dominique’ Desk I’ve managed to get a few sponsored post for Jan and the amount earned is enough to cover the hosting/domain for the next year. I’m hoping to reach the target of having enough to purchase a DSLR for Christmas.

2.I’ve got 3 guest post for Jan and have scheduled another 3 guest post for Feb so I’m doing fine in that department so far.

3. The kids toy cabinet has been de cluttered and left with 20% to rearrange.

4. We haven’t gone on a date night as yet but am going for a short holiday to Taiwan with only he girl next week 😛


Here is are my goals for 2012

Weight Lost Goals

I’m determined to get my weight down to 55kg by the time Tiger girl turns 2 in Sept. ( It’s currently down to 62/63kg)

My routine would be

    • Stair climbing (x2) 5 times a week
      Zumba WII or other interactive sports games.
    • Increase intake of fruits and water.
    • Cook more healthy foods
    • Try to get more sleep at night if possible ( hopefully Tiger Girl can sleep through the night soon)

Household maintainance

  • Organize the kids toy chest and donate the toys that they don’t need.
  • Clear out expired stuff from the pantry and the fridge.
  • Pack up the baking cupboard and put all the essentials neatly inside.
  • Wash all the air-con filters/ clean all the fans in the house.
  • Re-ogarnize the  bookshelf.
  • Sort out the pantry and all other cupboards.

  • Read daily to Tiger girl and start doing more flashcards with her.
  • Brushing up on Monkey boy’s composition and oral  skill for both English and Chinese.
  • Getting Monkey boy to polish up his piano pieces for the upcoming piano exam  this year. He will most probably be going for Grade 2.
  •  Getting Doggie boy to do practice the piano more often.
  • Getting the kids to read more in English/Chinese before bedtime.

    I’m impressed with all the guest posts you’ve lined up already this year. Do you have a list of guidelines that you give your guest posters? I’m looking for people to guest post on and want to give out some guidelines.

      Hi Rebekah,
      I do have some guidelines for guest posting. The article has to be originally written for my site and not posted anywhere else, based on topics which I’m comfortable to share on my blog. If there are any pictures given to be free of any copyright violations or I will source for the pictures to be added in myself. You can see some of the guest post done at Dominique’s Desk here.

    Great list! I’m working on increasing revenue on my blog as well. Have the domain and hosting covered so far plus a little extra.
