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


Exercise At Least 3,900 Minutes This Year

I exercised 38 minutes over the last two weeks for a grand total of 342 minutes for the year. About a week and a half ago, I stretched and felt a twinge in my back.  That turned into back pain and tightness that is only now going away.  Because of this pain, I didn’t exercise much over the past two weeks.

Track on WW Every Day

Accomplished this week. Ugh, what a roller coaster my WW weight loss attempts have been.  I’ve decided to not weigh myself until my birthday.  Why?  Because I can be following my plan, tracking points, and then I weigh myself.  If I gain weight, I feel like all is lost and I overeat.  If I lose weight, I feel like, great, I can take a little break, and I overeat.  Weighing myself right now just doesn’t lead to anything good.  Instead, I will return to my original goal and track every day and focus on sticking to my points range.

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

No progress on this.

Attend One Week Day Mass Weekly

Accomplished this week. So this year, we’ve gone to weekly Mass 6/9 times.  I’m happy to report this has now become a regular part of our routine!  In the last two weeks, we missed one time because I woke up to discover that our water softener system in our garage had broken down and leaked all over our garage.  My morning was spent taking care of that rather than going to Mass.


I’m working on changing my blog focus and hope to slowly implement that over the next few weeks.

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 11 books so far this year, making this goal 27.5% complete.


My Goals I Want to Achieve in 2020: Week 8 of 52

In the last two weeks,  I’ve read The Girl with the Louding Voice, which I loved!  I also read, But You Did Not Come Back by Marceline Loridan-Ivens, which was a completely different type of book.

Now, I’m going to begin The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah.

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 two weeks, putting me on a 123 day streak.

Complete Japanese from Zero Book One

No progress.  Rather than using Japanese from Zero Book One right now, I’ve instead signed up for Mango Languages‘ Japanese course.  There are well over 300 lessons there, and I’ve completed 8 lessons.  I also signed the girls up for this.

Reduce Our Grocery Bill

My goal this year is to reduce our grocery bill to $10,000 or $833 a month.

I had a big freezer cooking session this past weekend (I’ll share next week), mostly because we have a busy two months coming up, but also just in case we ever have to be quarantined with the coronavirus.  So, March has started high!

So far in March, we’ve spent $407.09

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.


Ugh.  I’m beginning to wonder if either of these trips will happen this year.  My mom was supposed to fly here in April, but she is likely going to cancel that trip amid coronavirus scares.  We were planning to go to Japan in May, and we already know that won’t happen.

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

We have been tentatively planning a trip for May, but this week my husband’s mother called and said she thought we should wait to come because she’s worried about the coronavirus.  Then it’s rainy season in Japan until the end of July, and then at the end of July, there is the Olympics in Japan.  Our son starts school at the beginning of August.  Who knows when we’ll go.  Hopefully we can go in May.

That’s it.  My goals I want to accomplish in 2020: Weeks 9 and 10 of 52.
