This post contains affiliate links.  This week was quite successful in the goals area. I’m hopeful for actually accomplishing all of this six weeks’ goals, especially my three major goals–improving my health, learning Japanese, and homeschooling.

Path through a green forest. Overlayed is "My Goals for 2024: The Third 6 Weeks"


Health Goals

Eat My Meals 3 Hours Apart

Accomplished! This is necessary to help me get rid of SIBO.

Follow a Low Fodmap Diet

Accomplished! I’m hoping the next 6 weeks will be enough time for me to finally eradicate SIBO, so I want to stick to a low fodmap diet to help my body recover.


I have two goals for exercise:

Walk at Least One Mile a Day 5x a Week

Accomplished! I walked one mile exactly 5x this week.

Lift Weights Four Times a Week and Do Yoga Five Times a Week

Working on it. I did yoga twice and weight training twice.

Meal Prep 4 out of the Next 6 Weeks

My husband did the meal prep this week, so I’m still counting it as accomplished this week.

Learning Japanese

PB & J Girl and I attempted to learn Japanese on our own this year using Japanese Pod 101 and watching videos on YouTube. My husband and I want to enroll her in an online Japanese II class next year, so we need to make sure she’s caught up with what the students learned in Japanese I. She’s in a good place with her learning, but we do need to amp these up from now until September. Here is my plan to amp up my own learning:

Listen to Japanese for 1,000 Minutes

Did not do this. I need to get into the habit again.

Like last time, I plan to listen to Japanese music in the background when I work, listen to Japanese practices, and watch the news and videos in Japanese.

Study Japanese for 30 Minutes 5x a Week

Accomplished. Wow did I so rock this one this week!! My goal is 150 minutes a week, and I studied for 162 minutes

(We’re using Japanese Pod 101, watching videos on YouTube, and studying with PB & J Girl’s new textbook and workbook.)

Homeschool Goals

Last year I planned out all of PB & J Girl’s assignments in the summer so I didn’t have to do it during the school year. That’s what I plan to do this year, but I have less time since my hours increased at work, so I need to get started earlier.

Plan Out Her Entire Geography Course & Work

On track. I’ve planned six weeks of her geography so far. Over the next 5 weeks, I want to plan the remaining 30 weeks.

Complete the Girls’ Quarterly Reports & Submit

Accomplished! Now I don’t need to worry about this again until the end of June. (Four times a year I have to spend a few hours completing each girl’s quarterly report to submit to our local school district.)

Read 2 Books

No progress this week. The books I will read this 6 weeks will be books I’m planning to assign PB & J Girl.

Complete 5 Biology Labs

No progress this week. Since my husband is the scientist, I planned to hand PB & J’s Biology labs off to him. However, he doesn’t have the patience for it, so I need to start doing these with her. So far she’s only completed two labs. If I don’t get busy, she’ll end up with a Biology credit without labs, which is NOT what either of us want.

Financial Goals

Only one financial goal for this six weeks:

Don’t Spend Any More than $2,000 on Groceries

Eating Healthy Gluten Free Dairy Free Food on a Budget

On track. For the first week of this six weeks, I spent $124 on groceries.

I need to make sure this goal happens this six weeks because we WAY overspent in March.

How are you doing on your goals for 2024?
