My Weekly Goals

Inspired by Crystal Paine's new book "Say Goodbye to Survival Mode: 9 Simple Strategies to Stress Less, Sleep More, and Restore Your Passion for Life " , I have decided to start making a list of 10 weekly goals that I hope to accomplish this week. Each week I hope to post a listing of my goals for the week in the categories of: marriage, mothering, personal, blogging and homemaking.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


FIRST LET'S RECAP LAST WEEK:

My goals for last week were:

MARRIAGE GOALS: 
  • Leave a love note for Bill on nights he works late  did this 3 times! 
  • Figure out what to get Bill for Valentine's Day  bought on Saturday! 
MOTHERING GOALS:
  • Read a book to each child before bed each night
  • Clean out toys in living room and bring play kitchen down for kids to play with
HOMEMAKING GOALS:
  • Clean out file box for 2013 and begin filing for 2014
  • File taxes for 2013  (this one I am counting as done, even though I have to mail off our city tax papers; but federal and state are done and submitted!)
PERSONAL GOALS: 
  • Exercise each day (in line with my big February goal)-- I got in 3 days of exercise
  • ONE soda a day-- NO
BLOGGING GOALS:
  • Write 3 book reviews and publish at least 1 this week--I got one published, still 2 to go.
  • Kroger Simple Truth review written and posted-- NOPE
So....I did much better on my marriage, mothering and homemaking goals, but not so much on my personal and blogging goals. Will have to step it up this week.....

  2. I don't make weekly goals but every night I write a list of things I want to accomplish the next day. I usually get about 90% done. Like today I'm trying to catch up on laundry too :)

  3. I used to make a daily list too, but I found that I was going overboard and not allowing everyday life to happen and I would get frustrated with not getting 100% of stuff done. I do go into each day with what is most important to get done that day though....

  4. Taxes are one thing that are on my list to do this week. I need to get on that possibly even later today. Hearing all these people like you who have them done is motivating me. The government doesn't need my money any longer :)

    Good luck with your goals this week!
