This post contains affiliate links. I’ve been on the wait list forever for Atomic Habits.  I finally got it a few days ago and started reading it.  I’m only 50 pages in, but I can already tell it will change the way I set goals.  So, based on what little I’ve read so far, I’m going to start changing how I present some of my goals to focus more on the process.  For me, right now, that means making some things like exercise a habit.  Rather than focusing on how much time I want to exercise, I’m going to just focus on the act of exercising and doing it every.single.day even if it’s for 5 minutes.  I want it to become ingrained in my routine before I start setting lofty goals about how many minutes I want to achieve.

An Update for the Last Week

And, here is an update on my goals I want to achieve in 2020: weeks 24 of 52.

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

My Goals from Last Week

  1. Start using my planner again.  I did this for half the week.  (I may be home almost every day, all day, but we still have Zoom meetings & appointments, and I need to start keeping a list of things to do regularly again.)
  2. DONE.  Create a new chore chart.  (This will be the week it gets done!)
  3. Exercise for 100 minutes.  I exercised for 55 minutes.
  4. Track and stick to WW’s Purple Plan.  I did for half the week, and then I fell off the bandwagon for Father’s Day and one of our children’s birthdays.
  5. Eat 8 fruits and vegetables a day.  Not there yet.  I had 6 fruits and veggies a day.  (My weight loss has stalled even though I’m sticking to my WW plan, so I’m hoping this helps jump start things.
  6. Declutter & organize my bathroom closet.  Half done.  This is a big project as I literally haven’t cleaned this closet in the 6 years we’ve been in our house.  
  7. DONE.  Put up a new bookshelf and reorganize our homeschool material and books.
  8. Redo our budget.  I’m shelving this one for now as it’s hard to rework the budget when I don’t know what his salary will be.  (There’s a chance my husband will have a pay cut starting in the next few weeks, so I want to alter the budget to reflect that.)
  9. DONE.  Update 5 of my old blog posts.
  10. DONE.  Continue doing Duolingo daily.
  11. DONE.  Continue toward my reading goals.  I am still reading The Island of Sea Women by Lisa See.

I am also reading Atomic Habits by James Clear.

My Goals for Next Week

  1. Use my planner for 5 days this week.
  2. Exercise for 5 days this week.
  3. Track and stick to WW’s Purple Plan for 5 days this week.
  4. Eat 8 fruits and vegetables a day.  (My weight loss has stalled even though I’m sticking to my WW plan, so I’m hoping this helps jump start things.
  5. Declutter & organize the bottom two shelves of my bathroom closet.
  6. Pray in the morning and night 5 days this week.  (I pray every night, but I’ve let the morning prayer habit disappear.)
  7. Create a rough daily schedule for the girls and myself.
  8. Update 5 of my old blog posts.
  9. Continue doing Duolingo daily.
  10. Continue toward my reading goals.
