Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
You should file actually both motions at the same time. The court will likely deny the reconsideration, unless you have some very compelling new evidence you believe the court did not consider as courts rarely like to reverse themselves. If they deny the reconsideration, you still have a shot at asking them to vacate and you cite your legal grounds as to why the case should be vacated and if the motion to vacate is denied, then you can seek to appeal the denial of the motion to vacate, which would only be to appeal the motion to vacate being denied arguing that you had legal grounds for the judgment to be vacated and the court improperly denied that motion.
You really should consider, since the courts really dislike pro se litigants, getting a new attorney to step into the case as it greatly increases your odds here of success.
