10 Goals for the Week

10 Goals to Tackle This Week

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 become a habit.

Or not.

Because I do have five beautiful children that tend to keep life sort of unpredictable. ;)

Anyway, 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 at home — We watched The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (again! :) ) and ate hobbit/dwarf-themed food.

Personal Goals:

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

4. Walk a total of 100 minutes on the treadmill

5. Drink water with lemon (or lime) and cayenne pepper 4x — We ran out of lemons…

6. Read 20 pages of Tasty Food Photography by Pinch of Yum

Home Management Goals:

7. Mop the floors

8. Fill a bag with items to donate

Business Goals:

9. Bring in a piece of furniture from the garage to use for food photography

10. Write 3 blog posts — I wrote two posts.

10 Goals to Tackle This Week

I was able to cross almost everything off my list from last week.

In case you ever wonder how I stay mostly on top of my goals after I set them, my not-so-secret tool is Google Calendar. I use it so often and it’s become such a helpful tool that I finally stopped using any sort of tangible planner.

In the past, I couldn’t stay organized without physically writing out and scheduling things in my planner, but now that I use Google Calendar and realize how much better organized it allows me to be, I did away with my planner.

Someday, I may write a post to share why I personally love Google Calendar. ;)

Anyway, 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 at home — Our family days usually happen on Sunday afternoons, and lately, they’ve involved a movie and fun snacks. To be completely honest, we’ve been watching The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings films week after week for a while now. We went through all five movies and now we’re checking out the extended versions from the library.

Personal Goals:

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

4. Walk a total of 95 minutes on the treadmill

5. Drink water with lemon (or lime) and cayenne pepper 5x — I only drank this twice.

6. Read 20 pages of Tasty Food Photography by Pinch of Yum

Home Management Goals:

7. Organize Elisabeth’s play area — It’s become overridden with LEGOs.

8. Unpack one box in the basement — I decided to unpack a garbage bag of old swimming/pool stuff that was sitting in the basement instead of one of the boxes.

Business Goals:

9. Get caught up on emails

10. Write 3 blog posts

10 Goals for the Week

I was able to cross almost everything off my list for last week. I completely missed drinking a single one of my lemon (or lime) water concoctions. And I only wrote one blog post last week, but this week should be different. Now that the July 4th holiday has passed, and my neighbors are no […] Read more »

10 Goals for the Week

I know that it’s almost Thursday. But that’s okay, because it’s never too late to set goals, right? I may have had this post published earlier, but I was a bit thrown off when I woke up this morning and went to change Elisabeth only to find that there wasn’t a diaper or Pull-Up in […] Read more »
