10 Goals for the Week

10 Goals to Tackle This Week

Last week was ‘Conference Recovery Week’ for me.

This week, I’ve started an improved work schedule, and it’s going great. I’ve also taken on quite a bit more work, so this new schedule is much needed. Besides a changed work schedule, I’m in the process of looking for a virtual assistant to work with. I know once I find the right person, my workload will feel a little lighter.

I’m looking forward to that.

Anyway, I managed to accomplish some of my goals last week:

Family/Mothering Goals:

1. Take Breanna to get her hair cut — I have it on the calendar for this Friday.

2. Plan which days I’ll cook with the kids in July

Personal Goals:

3. Drink juice or smoothies 5 days this week — I think I managed to drink juice/smoothies 4 days last week.

4. Read 10 pages of the book Desperate

5. Walk on the treadmill for 2 hours — I’m struggling with getting on the treadmill. If I don’t get on before my baby girl wakes up, then she wants to join me. In the past, I’ve used a baby carrier to ‘wear’ her while I walk. She doesn’t seem to really enjoy it, though, so I didn’t even try last week and logged 0 minutes on the treadmill.

Home Management Goals:

6. Clean the master bedroom — Yay! Got this done, and my husband was happy and surprised to see that I was cleaning our bedroom! :)

7. Unpack our suitcases from the trip to Ohio — Ruben unpacked our suitcases before I could even get to them (which probably would’ve been Sunday night), so it’s done.

Business Goals:

8. Get caught up on work — I’m still working on this…

9. Return emails

10. Write 4 blog posts

    I can relate to you needing to get your exercise out of the way before the baby gets up. Most morning I get up before anyone else and get my exercising out of the way right away. There was two days during my husband’s vacation time that I slept in and then when I went to exercise my son joined in with me. It was alright but I had to be careful as he almost knocked me over twice while I was exercising. His exercising can be a little wild.

    I hope you have a great week and find a good VA to work with.

      Hi Shelly, that’s so funny, and your son sounds a lot like my 6-year-old. :) I’m still working on getting up before the baby. We co-sleep, so it’s a little more difficult than if she slept in a crib.

      I think I’ve found the right person to work with here on The Sensible Mom. I’m interviewing her next week, and I’m looking forward to this new chapter. :)

    With both my kids we co-slept so I know it’s more difficult to get up and away without waking the little one up. Maybe you could get some walking in while out at the library each day. A few laps around the parking lot while your older kids work on their schoolwork? I used to mall walk with a friend when my daughter was small. She didn’t mind riding in the stroller so we could walk for about an hour. But there is a temptation to shop at the mall.

      Thanks for the tips, Shelly! I have thought about how to get in some exercise while I’m at the library. I wish there were treadmills in the rooms there, because then I could walk and work – without having my baby girl try to join me. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by The Sensible Mom! Now join the conversation!
