This post contains affiliate links.  So far, I’m enjoying breaking my goals down into 6 week increments. While I’m writing my goals for 2024: the third 6 weeks here, I won’t start working on these until I finish my goals for 2024: the second 6 weeks on Thursday, when I’ll give a wrap up.

For this upcoming 6 weeks, I have 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

I failed last 6 weeks at eating my meals 4 hours apart, so I’m going to make this goal smaller for this 6 weeks–eat my meals 3 hours apart to help get rid of SIBO.

Follow a Low Fodmap Diet

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

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

What? Am I crazy? The past 12 weeks, I rarely accomplished the simpler version of this goal. Why am I upping it? Well, I discovered that I have arthritis in my back and osteopenia, so it’s time to get going on this goal. Yoga will help the arthritis, and weight training will help the osteopenia.

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

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

I’ll continue to use Japanese Pod 101, watch videos on YouTube, and study 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

I’ve planned two weeks of her geography so far. Over the next 6 weeks, I want to plan the remaining 34 weeks.

Complete the Girls’ Quarterly Reports & Submit

Four times a year I have to spend a few hours completing each girl’s quarterly report to submit to our local school district. They’re coming up soon, so I need to focus on writing them this week and next week.

Read 2 Books

The books I will read this 6 weeks will be books I’m planning to assign PB & J Girl.

Complete 5 Biology Labs

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

This should be the last 6 weeks without our CSA, so I’m hoping grocery costs go down in the summer.

How are you doing on your goals for 2024?
