This post contains affiliate links. We took the week off and had a low key week relaxing. Despite that, I still managed to make progress on my goals. Here is my progress for my goals for 2022: week 7 of 52.
My Goals for 2022
Stay Ahead in My Work
On track. I was a week ahead, but not anymore! I’ll start working on getting a week ahead again in March.
On track. I am now a half week ahead in my blog. However, like my freelance work, I’d like to be two weeks ahead. The following goals will help with that:
Keep an Editorial Calendar
Take Classes on SEO and Pinterest
Update 52 Blog Posts
This goal is 7.7% complete. I didn’t update any blog posts this week.
These are the posts I updated previously:
Eliminate Broken Links
Not yet. I have 1,600 broken links on my blog! I started to tackle this, but then I realized it would be better to work on eliminating old pages that no longer have worth. Doing that will take care of a lot of the broken links, but I need to learn how to do it properly so people don’t get an error page. (I really should be better at behind the scenes work as a blogger, but I really just like to write!!)
Get My Two Blog Email Accounts Down to Zero
This goal is 9.4% complete.
At the start of the year, my main work email had 112,413 messages; it now has 107,344. The other had 8,291; it currently has 5,917.
We did so many home improvements in 2021 that most of 2022 will be spent replenishing our home improvment fund. However, there are some small improvements that we’d like to get done.
- Put handles on the kitchen and bathroom cabinets,
- Replace the sliding glass door handle
- Finish our master bathroom (We had a new shower tile installed, but now we need to do something with our vanity, paint the walls where we had the large mirror removed, and add smaller mirrors.)
- Replace the underlay on our roof. (This will either be done in 2022 or early in 2023, depending on life circumstances.)
Walk 400 Miles This Year
This goal is 11.8% complete. This week I walked 6 miles for 116 minutes.
For the year, I’ve walked 47.4 miles for 889 minutes.
Make a Recipe Binder
Not yet. I have a lot of recipes our family likes, but they’re not written down anywhere.
Have One Health Challenge a Month
This goal is 8% complete
My goal for February is to do 10 sit ups, 5 push ups and 25 squats for 14 days this month. I only did this once last week. I keep forgetting!!
Complete–walk a 5K on the treadmill!
I had never walked more than 2.5 miles since last year when I started walking, so this was a stretch for me. However, I did it and couldn’t be happier about it. Unfortunately, it did kick my butt and resulted in a lower number of miles walked this week than the last few, so I won’t be walking a 5K again for awhile.
Take One Day a Week Completely Off Work
This goal is just not going to happen in this busy season of our lives. Instead, I replaced this goal:
Make 80+ Freezer Meals So I Don’t Have to Cook During the 100+ Degree Summer Days
I wrote a post about my goal to make 80+ freezer meals by this summer.
This week I didn’t add any meals. My total so far is 14 meals and this goal 17.5% complete:
These are the meals I have already prepared:
Stuffed Pepper Soup, (x2)
Sloppy Joes (x2)
Chicken Fajitas (x2) (I just froze the filling)
Vegetarian Chili & Cornbread,
Spend No More Than 45 Minutes on Social Media a Day
This goal is 9.6% complete. Yes! I did great with this during the week.
Finish The Bible in a Year
This goal is 8% completed. I didn’t listen to any episodes this week. (I started the year on episode 183.)
Read 52 Books
Brother Andrew (review coming soon)
The Forest of Vanishing Stars (review coming soon)
Die with Zero (review coming soon!)
I’m currently reading/listening to six books. (Check out my reading challenge to see what I plan to read this year.)
Write in My Journal 100 Times This Year
This goal is 4% complete. I didn’t write in my journal this week.
Take Four Local Trips
No trips this week.
Travel to Michigan
Not yet, but we’re hoping to go maybe in the spring?
Travel to Japan
I’m putting this goal here because we were planning to go to Japan in February, 2020. Covid had already hit Japan by then, so my husband’s mom asked us to cancel the trip. Little did we know how much our world would change in March, 2021. We’d love to go to Japan in 2022, but that will depend on how the pandemic goes.
There you have it, my goals for 2022! I’d love to hear how your goals are progressing in the new year.
