I had a better week than usual this week.  It’s starting to get bright out earlier, so I think I should be able to start walking in the mornings, before the household gets going.  Hopefully that will help me achieve my exercise goal more consistently.

As a reminder, here are my January goals and my added new goal.

Make Time to Relax

Read a book a week.  I finished both You Need a Budget. and The Invention of Wings, Tonight I plan to start reading Reading with Patrick by Michelle Kuo.


Write. I wrote in my journal once this week.  I think I’ve figured out why I don’t do this consistently.  I don’t want my kids to see me writing in my journal because I don’t want them hunting for it out of curiosity.  So, I try to write at night, but by the time the kids are all down at 9 p.m., I’m too tired to write.  This week I’m going to try writing in the morning.

Care for Myself

Exercise.  I took one 10 minute walk this week.

Manage my sugar cravings. I once again started tracking my Weight Watchers points, and I lost 3 pounds.

Create a Manageable Schedule for Myself

The chore chart is working great for the kids, but I’m still trying to tweak my own schedule, as you can see.

Re-establish My Prayer Routine

This week was not so good.  I only said my morning prayers about half of the mornings this week because we got up late a few mornings.

Make $25 a Month on Swagbucks

I started at 214 Swagbucks back at the end of January, and now I’m at 2,011.  So close to my first $25 Amazon gift card for 2018.  And it’s a good thing!  Cuddle Bug’s birthday is in April, and she’s already filled my Amazon cart with all of the American Girl doll accessories she wants.


These are my initial goals for 2018.  How are you doing on your goals?  I’d love it if you’d share in the comments!
