10 Goals for the Week

10 Goals to Tackle This Week

I was able to cross all but one of my goals off my list last week.

I decided not to upload any family vlogs because, by Friday afternoon, I was spent as a mom and needed a break.

If you watch our vlogs, you know that my husband, Ruben, is in just about every video, and that’s because we film the vlogs on weekends or on days he’s requested off work for a particular reason. But on the days he works, which is obviously most days, he works outside of the house for much of the day, and then comes home and works some more — inputting information into work systems, calling customers, etc… He usually finishes up around the time the kids are heading to bed, but many days it’s later than that.

Anyway, while I can normally handle the kids and regular home life with his crazy work schedule, by the end of last week, my patience was gone. And all I wanted was to be alone for awhile.

I felt better by Sunday, but I’m glad Ruben only has to work four days 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. Read to my children 5x

Personal Goals:

3. Do resistance band exercises 4x

4. Walk a total of 150 minutes on the treadmill

5. Read 10 pages of The Lord of the Rings (Part One) The Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien

6. Journal 2x

Home Management Goals:

7. Organize bookshelves

8. Organize, delete, and clean up files on my computer

Business Goals:

9. Shoot, edit, & upload three videos to our family YouTube channel 

10. Shoot, edit, & upload two family vlogs

10 Goals for the Week

10 Goals to Tackle This Week

I was able to cross everything off last week’s goals list!

One handy little tool that’s been helping me stay on task (alongside my calendar) is the Habit Streak Pro app. I had installed the free version of the Habit Streak app on my phone and was using that until I realized that I couldn’t add more than 5 tasks to work on at a time.

I don’t remember exactly how much the upgrade was (a few dollars…), but it was WELL WORTH IT! :)

The app has been such a blessing in my own life that I decided to install the free version on two of the tablets that Nathan and Breanna (my older kids) use, and they’ve been working on five areas in their lives every day, too.

I wish I’d known about the Habit Streak app sooner, but I’m thankful to be using it now.

Hello, not-perfect-but-smoother-days!

8. Mop the floor

Business Goals:

9. Shoot, edit, & upload one video to our family YouTube channel and apply Disney themed Jamberry Nails because my nails need a break from regular polish

10 Goals for the Week

We spent two super fun days away from home earlier this week, but things are back to normal today. However, because we were away, I don’t have as much time as I normally would to tackle my goals. So I’m going to be realistic and keep them (hopefully) doable. Here’s what I accomplished last week: […] Read more »
