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 second monthly update post.

My Goals for 2021

Concrete Goals

Read 26 Books

This goal is 27% accomplished.  I have read 7 books so far in 2021:

A Higher Call,

Elisabeth Elliott: Joyful Surrender,

Forty Autumns,

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 32% accomplished.  So far, I’ve listened to 59 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 16% accomplished.  I did a fantastic job doing this in January, but February has been hitting and miss for tracking my WW Green Plan points every day.  Got to get back to tracking.

Exercise at least five days a week

In February, I should have exercised 20 days of the month to meet this goal.  Instead, I exercised 9 days.  (In January I exercised 7 days, so I’m at a total of 16 days for the first two months of the year.  Not great. ;))

Lose weight

I lost 4 pounds this month!!  In January, I lost 2 pounds, and in 2020 I lost 18 pounds, so now I’m down 24 pounds 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!

In February, I started limiting my social media time to 30 minutes a day.

Research My Ancestry

This goal is 32% complete.  I’m loving this and will be sad when my subscription ends in June!

Declutter the House

This goal is 10% 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!  We’re currently working on the garage.  To be honest, I forgot this was a monthly goal a few weeks ago and haven’t been keeping up on it!

Complete Home Improvement Projects

This goal is 45% complete!  We’re now starting to tackle our ugly livingroom:

So far, my husband painted the area by the front door (this picture is the BEFORE picture) and the ceiling.  By the end of March, the livingroom should be completed.  (I can’t wait to get rid of these ugly brown walls!)

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 & February 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?
