10 Goals for the Week

10 Goals to Tackle This Week

Even though I set goals late last week, I didn’t do all that bad getting things crossed off my list.

It helped that we spent most of the weekend at home. We did have a long day away on Friday, because we had to drive to Chicago for a regular appointment with David’s stem cell doctor. We ran a few errands on the way home, but didn’t get to everything we’d hoped to before traffic and hunger started to get the best of us. ;)

Then on Sunday, we went out to shop for groceries and things we need for our upcoming trip to Florida for David’s wish. But other than that, I spent the rest of the weekend planning, cooking, cleaning, watching movies, and eating.

Here’s what I accomplished last week:

Family/Mothering Goals:

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

2. Make zucchini muffins — I ran into a few problems with the zucchini. First, it seems they froze having been in a bag towards the back of the refrigerator. I noticed that some of the pre-made mashed sweet potatoes I’d put in bowls for later also had icicles on them, so we obviously needed to adjust them temperature of the fridge. ;)

Anyway, I had set the zucchini out to thaw, and afterwards, they just didn’t look good. So I decided not to make zucchini muffins after all!

Personal Goals:

3. Read 20 pages of Virtual Freedom (affiliate link) by Chris Ducker

4. Walk a total of 60 minutes on the treadmill

5. Read 20 pages of The Hobbit (affiliate link) by J.R.R. Tolkein

6. Go to bed by 11:00pm the rest of this week — Oh man. I failed miserably at getting to bed by 11:00pm, but I am going to bed earlier overall. I’m also getting up earlier, which is my ultimate goal. I want to get to bed at a reasonable time, so that I can be up and ready before most of the kids are up.

Home Management Goals:

7. Clean bathrooms

8. Finish homeschool planning

Business Goals:

9. Rework my home/work/homeschool schedule in Google Calendar

10. Spend 15 minutes a day writing blog posts — I’ve been letting this slip, but now that I’ve reworked my schedule, I’m hoping to cross this off next week. :)

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 Night

Personal Goals:

3. Finish reading  Virtual Freedom (affiliate link) by Chris Ducker

4. Walk a total of 60 minutes on the treadmill

5. Read 20 pages of The Hobbit (affiliate link) by J.R.R. Tolkein

6. Get up by 6:00am every morning — So far, so good! I woke up when my alarm clock went off at 6:00am today.

Home Management Goals:

7. Sew two items that need it

8. De-clutter my desk

Business Goals:

9. Shoot and edit photographs for an upcoming post

10. Spend 15 minutes a day writing blog posts

10 Goals to Tackle This Week

It’s Thursday. Yes, I know.

I should’ve written this post and published it on Monday. I’ll blame my lateness on the endless dishes that need to be washed, getting ready to start our new homeschool year, and the many impromptu family nights that seem to keep happening so that we can squeeze in more Hobbit and Lord of the Rings movies.

(I love family nights, by the way. :) )

Here’s what I accomplished last week:

Family/Mothering Goals:

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

2. Go shopping for clothes to wear on David’s wish trip! I need to pick up some things for myself and the kids.

Personal Goals:

3. Read 20 pages of Virtual Freedom (affiliate link) by Chris Ducker

4. Walk a total of 60 minutes on the treadmill — I ended up logging around 45 minutes on the treadmill. Now if the treadmill had been located in front of the television, then I’d have made my goal easily. ;)

5. Read 20 pages of The Hobbit (affiliate link) by J.R.R. Tolkein

6. Read 10 pages of The Early to Rise Experience for Moms (affiliate link) by Andy Traub — I’ve decided not to finish this book and instead just work on going to bed earlier, so that I can wake up before my kids. I made it to bed before 11:00pm last night (big accomplishment), and next week, I’m going to try to be up by 6:00am every morning.

Home Management Goals:

7. Vacuum stairs

8. Continue home school planning

Business Goals:

9. Shoot and edit photographs for an upcoming blog post

10. Spend 15 minutes a day writing blog posts — I didn’t write every day, but having this as a goal has definitely made a difference.

Here are my goals for this week:

Family/Mothering Goals:

This week is going to be busier than usual, so I’m going to try to keep my goals a bit simpler. We have a fun family day out planned one day and then a not-so-fun day planned at the hospital for David. He has two appointments this week (on the same day), and we’re also […] Read more »

Once again, I met most of the goals I had set last week, but I didn’t meet my goal of writing at least three blog posts. After thinking about it, the thought crossed my mind to actually put together a plan for how I can make this goal a reality each week. So this week, […] Read more »

Similar to last week, the next seven days should be pretty laid-back. So, I’m going to try to break out the juicer at least once, and I’m planning on working hard to actually write three posts this week! I feel like I just need to get into a rhythm with my writing, and then it’ll […] Read more »
