This post contains affiliate links.  Last week I had a stern talking with myself.  I know that current events can be very distracting, but for the last three weeks, I had accomplished very little in way of my goals.  So on Monday, I started fresh.  That’s not completely reflected here because I update these goal posts on Thursday, so you’re only seeing half of my new and improved week.  But, I did start to make changes, and I feel much better.  Here are my goals I want to achieve in 2020: weeks 14 of 52.

My 16 Goals I Want to Accomplish in 2020: Week 1 of 52


Exercise At Least 3,900 Minutes This Year

I exercised 30 minutes over the last week for a grand total of 437 minutes for the year.

Track on WW Every Day

Accomplished this week. I had been following the purple plan, but I found that very difficult in our current times.  We’re out of potatoes, sweet potatoes, and rice, so I lost many of my free carbs.  We’re also very low on eggs, which I used to rely on for a zero point protein option.  Instead of throwing in the towel, I decided to switch to the Blue plan.  So far, that’s worked for me.

Learn Techniques to Handle, Recognize, and End Emotional Eating

I am continuing to read Made to Crave and the Made to Crave Devotional so I can remain focused each day.  I’ve also been scouting YouTube to watch other people talk about how they overcame emotional eating.


I have two goals with this.

Read a Passage of the Bible Daily

Accomplished this week. I started reading the Mass readings in The Word Among Us as well as reading the reflections.  It’s a nice way to start the morning.

Attend One Week Day Mass Weekly

Accomplished this week. I did it.  I watched a weekday Mass on YouTube.  It wasn’t the same as going to Mass, but there’s no reason why I can’t keep reaching this goal.  So far, I’ve accomplished this goal 7/14 weeks.


Progress on this has stalled.

DONE!!–Have the Site Redesigned and Updated

The new redesign is complete.

Transfer My Email List

As I mentioned previously, over the years, I have lost access to my email list!  Yikes!  Enough people have resigned up that last week I was able to send out a newsletter again.  Yay!   If you were on my previous email list and haven’t signed up again yet, will you please sign up?

Update at Least 200 Posts for SEO

No progress.

DONE!!–Delete at Least 100 Irrelevant Posts

I did a little bit more on this and have deleted 635 posts.  That’s the good news.  The bad news is that I’m only on July, 2011.   I still have almost 9 more years to go through!!!!

Read 40 Books

I have completed 13 books so far this year, making this goal 32.5% complete.

Last week I finished Local Girl Missing, which I enjoyed.

Local Girl Missing Cover

Now I’m reading Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination that Changed America Forever by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard.  Once again, I’ve hit that sweet spot where I can’t put it down.


Be sure to check out my historical fiction I want to read.  If you’re a fellow bookworm, follow me on Goodreads; I’d love to follow you.

Learn Japanese

Do Duolingo Every Day

I did Duolingo every day the last week, putting me on a 150 day streak.

Complete Japanese from Zero Book One

No progress.  I’ve haven’t looked at Japanese from Zero Book One or Mango Languages‘ Japanese course for over three weeks.  This upcoming week, I have to get this started again, too.

Reduce Our Grocery Bill


My goal was to reduce our grocery bill to $10,000 or $833 a month.  HOWEVER, given the current pandemic and the fact that I can no longer bargain shop as I used to, my husband and I decided to eliminate this goal.

Right now, we’re not stepping foot in the store, so we’re relying on online deliveries and what I can get from the grocery store pick up, which is really hit or miss.  Given our food intolerances, we can’t just eat whatever is available.

In March, we spent $1,258.37 (I had a large freezer cooking session in the beginning of March that made this bill a bit higher than normal, and I also put down $100 as a deposit for a 1/4 side of beef.)

In February we spent $895.08Not accomplished

In January, our total was $804.74Accomplished!


Gain Control of My Email

My Google email now has 393 emails———–>down from 5,957 emails at the beginning of the year.  This email is 93.4% completely finished.

No progress on these other nightmare email accounts:

My Yahoo blog email has 93,155 emails.

My Yahoo spam email has 161,328 emails.

My Yahoo personal email has 58, 832 emails.


I’m pretty sure these two travel goals will be scrapped for 2020.  Life, what can you do but roll with the punches?

Take a Trip to Michigan

This year, we plan to take another trip to Michigan.  We’ll either go as a family vacation, or we’ll go to help my mom if she has her other hip replaced.  We’re starting to save money for the trip now, but we won’t have any definitive plans until we learn what my mom plans to do.
