Although I have many things I want to accomplish this year, I’m taking the goals slowly, month by month. My January goals are all about taking care of myself.
This week, I added on some of the other things that I didn’t get to last week, so I’m pretty happy with my progress so far.
Make Time to Relax
Read a book a week. I finished one book this week, And Every Morning the Way Home Gets Longer and Longer, and I’m in the middle of reading two others: American Fire and Avoiding the Greener Grass Syndrome.
Write. I wrote in my journal once last week.
Care for Myself
Although losing weight was not one of my explicit goals, I did join Weight Watchers.
Last week I lost .8 pounds. This week, I found more foods I like and am having an easier time sticking to my points range, so I’m pleased.
Exercise. I walked twice last week, once for 12 minutes, and once for 10 minutes. (Thanks for the motivation, C!)
Manage my sugar cravings. Still working on this one. I have a plan that I’m going to try this week.
Create a Manageable Schedule for Myself
My mom just left after staying with us for 6 weeks, so this will be the week I can start to evaluate how our new schedule, which has us home in the middle of the day for 6 to 7 hours, works for us. We’re slowing ramping up school again, and I also plan to come up with a new chore system for the kids.
Re-establish My Prayer Routine
Right now, I’m just regularly saying my night prayers. Since I’m having success with the rest of my goals, it’s time to tackle this one this week.
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!
