10 Goals for the Week

10 Goals to Tackle This Week

Well, I managed to cross off all of my goals but my business goals.

I kept putting off finishing up the peppermint sugar scrub post; though, I did work a bit on the images. And I scheduled time to work on my new blog design, but then I didn’t actually work on it.

Oh well! It’s a new week, right? ;)

Here’s what I accomplished last week:

Family/Mothering Goals:

1. Continue to work on memorizing two verses of scripture as a family

2. Plan a fun family day

Personal Goals:

3. Do resistance band exercises 4x

4. Walk a total of 130 minutes on the treadmill

5. Read 20 pages of The Most Important Place on Earth (affiliate link) by Robert Wolgemuth

6. Journal 2x

Home Management Goals:

7. Spend 25 minutes cleaning/organizing the basement

8. De-clutter my desk

Business Goals:

9. Post DIY project/recipe for peppermint sugar scrub

10. Spend 1 hour on my blog redesign

5. Read 20 pages of The Most Important Place on Earth (affiliate link) by Robert Wolgemuth — I’m taking away so many good ideas to implement in our family from this book. However, I was sad to find out that the author’s wife, who is mentioned regularly in the book, recently went to Heaven. (I jumped on Google one afternoon because I wanted to know more about this incredibly smart mama.) By all accounts, she was a wonderful wife, mother, and grandmother who lived life well and to the glory of God!

6. Journal 2x

Home Management Goals:

7. Spend 25 minutes cleaning/organizing the basement — This has become a fun activity to do with the kids over the weekend.

8. Create a cleaning schedule

Business Goals:

9. Post DIY project/recipe for peppermint sugar scrub

10. Spend 1 hour on my blog redesign

10 Goals for the Week

10 Goals to Tackle This Week

I knocked out nearly all of my goals last week.

The only one I didn’t complete was my goal to post the recipe for peppermint sugar scrub. I did make a bit of progress, but I’m still only around 40% done. I’m definitely planning on finishing up that post this week! :)

Here’s what I accomplished last week:

Family/Mothering Goals:

1. Continue to work on memorizing two verses of scripture as a family

2. Plan a fun family day & individual “Day Out with Dad” dates for the kids — We decided to start scheduling these special dates again now that the holidays are over.

Personal Goals:

3. Do resistance band exercises 4x

4. Walk a total of 130 minutes on the treadmill — I’m slightly increasing my goal and will also be paying more attention to what I’m eating. Thankfully, the cookies, candies, and holiday goodies have all been eaten!

5. Read 20 pages of The Most Important Place on Earth (affiliate link) by Robert Wolgemuth

6. Journal 2x

Home Management Goals:

7. Spend 20 minutes cleaning/organizing the basement

8. Fill one bag with items to donate

Business Goals:

9. Post DIY project/recipe for peppermint sugar scrub

10. Plan out my blog redesign — This is long overdue, but I’ll admit I’m a little scared and don’t know exactly how I want my blog to look when it’s all said and done.

Here are my goals for this week:

Family/Mothering Goals:

1. Continue to work on memorizing two verses of scripture as a family

10 Goals for the Week

10 Goals to Tackle This Week

For the first time in quite a while, I was able to cross off all of my goals!

I’m not sure if that’ll happen next week, because life is returning to normal on Monday. The kids start homeschooling again, and I won’t have as much “free time” as I did during our two-week break.

Anyway, Happy New Year, friends! :)

Here’s what I accomplished last week:

Family/Mothering Goals:

1. Continue to work on memorizing two verses of scripture as a family

2. Plan a fun family day — We decided to start watching The Lord of the Rings trilogy (again :) ) and enjoyed pizza and snacks.

Personal Goals:

3. Do resistance band exercises 4x

4. Walk a total of 120 minutes on the treadmill — In case you’re wondering, I get most of my treadmill time in while watching Dateline, Forensic Files, FBI Files, or 48 Hours with my husband after the kids go to bed. ;)

5. Read 20 pages of The Most Important Place on Earth (affiliate link) by Robert Wolgemuth — This week I read about the power of our spoken words, and I’m working on changing the way I talk to my family. Words matter, and I want to use mine to build up and bring correction in a more loving way.

6. Journal 2x

Home Management Goals:

7. Spend 20 minutes cleaning/organizing the basement — I’m hoping that by spending a little time in the basement each week, it’ll end up a lot more organized, and I’ll get rid of things our family no longer needs or uses.

8. Spend 20 minutes de-cluttering the kids’ rooms

Business Goals:

9. Create and photograph a DIY project to share in a future blog post

10. Photograph a product that’ll be featured in an upcoming blog post

Here are my goals for this week:

Family/Mothering Goals:

1. Continue to work on memorizing two verses of scripture as a family

2. Plan a fun family day & individual “Day Out with Dad” dates for the kids — We decided to start scheduling these special dates again now that the holidays are over.
