This post contains affiliate links. Back in Michigan, three of my extended family members had the virus. Two of them are in the hospital; one of the two just came off the ventilator after 11 days, which we are so thankful for. However, the third one passed away yesterday afternoon. I’m worried and sad about the situation there, but rather than give in to sadness and eat junkie food, I’m trying to take care of myself. Plus, I’ve been reading that obesity, just obesity by itself, is the second greatest risk factor behind age for the virus, so I’m back on plan with Weight Watchers and exercising. Here is an update on my goals I want to achieve in 2020: weeks 16 of 52.
Exercise At Least 3,900 Minutes This Year
ACCOMPLISHED THIS WEEK. I exercised 75 minutes over the last week!! I think that’s the first time this year that I set the weekly goal I had in my mind for this challenge. I now have a grand total of 564 minutes for the year, making this goal 14.5% complete.
Track on WW Every Day
ACCOMPLISHED THIS WEEK! Again, I think this is the first time since I set the goal in January that I actually achieved it one week. I didn’t do perfectly, but I did keep track.
Learn Techniques to Handle, Recognize, and End Emotional Eating
NOT accomplished this week.
I have two goals with this.
Read a Passage of the Bible Daily
NOT accomplished this week. I did read a few of the Mass readings in The Word Among Us as well as reading the reflections, but I didn’t do it every day.
Attend One Week Day Mass Weekly
NOT accomplished this week. So far, I’ve accomplished this goal 7/16 weeks. It’s really challenging for me to watch daily Mass. I’d much rather be there in person.
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
I updated three this week.
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 16 books so far this year, making this goal 40% complete.
Last week I finished It Rained Warm Bread by Gloria Moskowitz.
This week, I’m reading Mrs. Lincoln’s Dressmaker by Jennifer Chiaverini.
Do Duolingo Every Day
I did Duolingo every day the last week, putting me on a 163 day streak.
Complete Japanese from Zero Book One
No progress. I did one day of Mango Languages‘ Japanese course. I don’t really have time for it in the morning because I’ve been exercising, so I need to find a different time during the day to do this so I can do it more regularly.
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
Not happening this year.
Take a Trip to Japan
Who knows when we’ll go.
That’s it. My goals I want to accomplish in 2020: Weeks 16 of 52.
What are your goals for the year?
