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.

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.

10 Goals to Tackle This Week

I hope you were able to enjoy extra time with your family last week.

We stayed home most of the week, but we did get out as a family to see the final Hobbit movie in IMAX 3D. It was a wonderful experience. :)

As far as my goals, I wish I could’ve crossed off more. But that’s okay; I should have time to really tackle them 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. Make homemade cinnamon rolls

Personal Goals:

3. Do resistance band exercises 4x

4. Walk a total of 120 minutes on the treadmill

5. Read 20 pages of The Most Important Place on Earth (affiliate link) by Robert Wolgemuth — I’ve been having a hard time picking this book up lately. Not because it isn’t good. I’ve been truly inspired and love what I’ve read so far. It’s just that I can’t get enough of J.R.R. Tolkien’s stories. As a family, we’ve been spending time reading & listening to the books, watching the movies, Googling history about the characters, and, well, Middle Earth has captive my imagination right now. ;)

6. Journal 3x — I only journaled twice.

Home Management Goals:

7. Spend 15 minutes cleaning/organizing in the basement

8. Move photos and files over to an external hard drive

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

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve written a goals post. For some reason, I kept starting this post but not finishing it. Oh well. It was nice to have a break, I guess! I am ready to start back up again, though. Here’s what I accomplished three weeks ago: Family/Mothering Goals: 1. Continue to […] Read more »

I hope you had a fun-filled Thanksgiving with your family and friends. Our family spent Thanksgiving just taking it easy, enjoying good food, and talking about what we’re thankful for. It was great.
