Another week, another update on my goals.

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

Make Time to Relax

Read a book a week.  I started Still Alice.  I wanted to read this a year or so ago, but the wait list was always too long.  This week I compulsively read the first 150 pages, and then the book started messing with my emotions, so I put it aside and went into You Need a Budget.  I hope to finish both this week.

Write. I wrote twice in my journal last week, thanks to reader Lisa’s gentle nudge.  Thanks, Lisa!

Care for Myself

Exercise.  No exercise this week.  I have to get back on this, but every time I move vigorously, I feel a throb in the tooth in front of the one that got pulled.  I should be able to start walking this week, though.

Manage my sugar cravings. I didn’t give this up for Lent.  Instead, I gave up raising my voice with my kids.  Ha!  It’s challenging, but going well so far.

Create a Manageable Schedule for Myself

I am happy to report that the chore chart is working beautifully with the girls.  Bookworm is a different story.  What is it with teenage boys?!

Re-establish My Prayer Routine

I said my morning prayers every day this week.  I’m also saying my basic night prayers.  For Lent, I added in saying a rosary a day.  That is also PB & J Girl’s Lenten resolve, so we’ve been able to pray it together.  We just missed twice this week.

Make $25 a Month on Swagbucks

I think know I might have been overly ambitious with this goal.  I started at 214 Swagbucks, and now I’m at 587, so I have earned 373 Swagbucks in the last four weeks.  I’m excited by the progress,  but I’m going to have to spend more time on this to get the 2,200 I need to get a $25 Amazon gift card.

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!
