This year I decided to arrange my goals differently.  Every week, I set weekly goals and share how I did on those goals.  I think of them as micro goals.  Then, once a month, I’ll update you on my yearly goals.  This is my first monthly update post.

My Goals for 2021

Concrete Goals

Read 26 Books

This goal is 15% accomplished.  I have read 4 books so far in 2021:

Blood & Silver,

When We Meet Again,

Charles Mulli,

The Book of Lost Friends,

Complete Half of The Bible in a Year Program

This goal is 16% accomplished.  So far, I’ve listened to 30 days of Father Mike Schmitz’s podcast, The Bible in a Year.  I had planned to cover 1/2 of this in 2021, but I’m liking it so much that right now I’m on track to complete the whole program in 2021.

Complete & Utilize Two Trainings for My Blog

This goal is 0% accomplished.

Live a Healthier Life

Sure, live a healthier life is vague, but here’s how I break it down:

Track my points on WW’s Green plan every day

This goal is 8% accomplished.  I’m doing fantastic following and tracking my WW Green Plan points every day.

Exercise at least five days a week

In January, I should have exercised 20 days of the month to meet this goal.  Instead, I exercised 7 days, so clearly, more work is needed here.

Lose weight

In early December, I had lost 18 pounds.  Then, I stopped tracking for a few weeks around Christmas, and I gained 2 pounds.  In January, I lost those 2 pounds plus lost an additional 2 pounds, so now I’m at 2 pounds down in January, and 20 pounds down total since I started losing weight last year.

Watch videos and read books on how to stop emotional eating

I have listened to several podcasts from Real Weight Loss for Real Women.

Find and Eliminate Time Wasters

This year I plan to be more efficient.  This means finding and ruthlessly eliminating time wasters.

In January, I found ways to reduce my time in the kitchen!

Research My Ancestry

This goal is 16% complete.  I’m loving this and will be sad when my subscription ends in June!

Declutter the House

This goal is 8% complete, but I have to say, this is my least favorite goal.  I really hate decluttering, which is probably why I need to do it more!

Complete Home Improvement Projects

This goal is 43% complete!

This year, we’d like to:

  • paint the livingroom,
  • paint the kids’ bathroom cupboards
  • paint the kitchen cupboards,
  • paint PB & J Girl’s ceiling,
  • replace the carpet,
  • replace the sliding glass door handle, and
  • paint the outside of the house

There’s more we’d like to do like replace some light fixtures, fix our rusty wrought iron gate, put in back splash, and replace our bathroom mirror, but we’ll wait on the other items.

Maybe Teach Bookworm to Drive

No progress on this one.

Overall, I’m happy with the progress I’ve made in January on my yearly goals.  If I can keep up this momentum, I think I can accomplish a lot this year.

What are your goals for 2021?  How much did you accomplish in January?
