This post contains affiliate links. How are you doing in the current situation? Are you smashing out your goals, or do you find it hard to focus? Does your mind wander? Do you often wonder when this will all be over? I’m trying to remain focused, but I often feel like a parent herding a small child back on task over and over again. (That small child being myself, unable to focus.) I’m sure I’m not alone. Here are my goals I want to achieve in 2020: weeks 15 of 52.
Exercise At Least 3,900 Minutes This Year
I exercised 52 minutes over the last week for a grand total of 489 minutes for the year, making this goal 12.5% complete.
Track on WW Every Day
NOT accomplished this week. Seriously struggling here, but I really feel the pull to return to my Paleo roots as that’s the only way I feel satisfied.
Learn Techniques to Handle, Recognize, and End Emotional Eating
NOT accomplished this week. I’ll blame my continued lack of focus. However, with the news that just being obese is a risk factor for the virus, I feel a strong need to start shedding some pounds. Next week, I will have made some definitive progress on this one.
I have two goals with this.
Read a Passage of the Bible Daily
Accomplished this week. I have been 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
NOT accomplished this week. So far, I’ve accomplished this goal 7/15 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
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 15 books so far this year, making this goal 37.5% complete.
Last week I finished Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination that Changed America Forever by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard.
I also read and finished Gladys Aylward: The Adventure of a Lifetime by Janet & Geoff Benge. This was in our Sonlight curriculum. I’d never heard of Aylward before, but we all enjoyed reading about her adventure-filled life.
I’ve finished the library books I had checked out. I’ve ordered more books from Amazon, but until I get them, PB & J Girl loaned me her book, It Rained Warm Bread by Gloria Moskowitz, which I’m currently reading.
Do Duolingo Every Day
I did Duolingo every day the last week, putting me on a 156 day streak.
Complete Japanese from Zero Book One
Reduce Our Grocery Bill
I HAVE ELIMINATED THIS GOAL FOR THE YEAR.
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 $895.08 – Not accomplished
In January, our total was $804.74 – Accomplished!
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.
Take a Trip to Japan
Who knows when we’ll go.
That’s it. My goals I want to accomplish in 2020: Weeks 15 of 52.
What are your goals for the year?
