This post contains affiliate links. Slowly but surely knocking these new goals out (or at least making good progress).  However, I need to find a way to implement yoga, weight lifting and Japanese into my schedule more regularly.  Those are the areas I’m falling behind in.

My Goals for the Remainder of 2023:

Health Goals

Take 750,000 Steps: 25% Accomplished

I walked 63,360 steps this week for a total of 191,991 steps for the last three weeks. I love using my treadmill desk to watch YouTube videos while walking and to practice my Japanese.

Have 22 Weight Lifting Sessions: 0% Accomplished

I did not do this.  I did find my weights, though.

Have 22 Yoga Sessions: 4.5% Accomplished

I did not do this.  So far, I’ve had one yoga session.

Follow a Low Fodmap Diet to Treat SIBO for the next 4 to 6 weeks: 0% Accomplished

Honestly, I’m confused about what diet to follow because everyone says something different.  Instead, I’m using my FoodMarble to monitor which foods cause fermentation and avoid those foods.  So far, a major culprit is apple, which is my favorite fruit.  Actually, at this point, almost all fruit gives me trouble, except blueberries and bananas.

Make an Appointment with a Heart Doctor: 0% Accomplished

I had my last heart doctor appointment in Arizona 18 months ago.  I’m supposed to go in for yearly monitoring, so I need to find a heart doctor here in New York, especially since most specialists here have long wait times.

Create a Work Routine

Making progress, but I still don’t have a work routine I love.  Working from home is a blessing that I’m thankful for.  My goal is to set defined work times so I know exactly when work time is and when off time is.  I’m working toward trying to get most of my work done in the morning hours, but this is still a work in progress.

Get Two Weeks Ahead in My Posts for Work: 0% Accomplished

Not yet, but I’m so close and hopefully that next week is the week I can do this!

Get 4 posts Ahead in My Blog: 25% Accomplished

I wrote one post ahead.  Progress!

Read 2 Books: 12% Accomplished

I was on the hold list for Jill Duggar’s book, Counting the Cost.  It came in last week, and I read it in two days.  Review coming soon!

Study Japanese for 1,500 Minutes: 5% Accomplished

I studied Japanese for  35 minutes this week, for a grand total of 78 minutes over the last three weeks.  To meet this goal, I’ll need to study 177 minutes a week, or 25 minutes a day.  Oof.

Final Thoughts

So far, breaking my goals into quarterly goals seems to be work.  I feel inspired rather than defeated as I did when I saw all of my yearly goals that I didn’t/couldn’t accomplish.
