10 Goals For This Week (+ why it might look like I bombed last week, but I’m actually calling it a win!)

Well, it might look like I sort of bombed last week’s goals. However, the week didn’t pan out at all like I envisioned — there were numerous unexpected things that ended up taking up a lot of my time, the babies had a few rough nights, and I also didn’t do a good job of remembering how much time it would take me to finish up my book edits (it was the second and final big edit and I wanted to read the book through word-for-word and make final edits — which takes hours and hours of time!)

But even though it looks like I flopped on my goals, last week was a success in my book. I spent lots of time holding and rocking and singing to and reading to the babies, we had lots of great discussions as a family, I was able to reach out and serve some people in our local community, and I got my book edits turned in! So I’m calling that a win!

Here’s how I did on last week’s goals…

Last Week’s Goals

Personal Goals

1. Take 3 walks in our neighborhood.

2. Read 5 chapters of The White Rose Resists. Read 5 chapters of Atomic Habits. Read 5 chapters of Standing Strong.

3. Finish listening to Dare to Lead.

4. Do pelvic floor exercises at least four times.

5. Do 3 days of Couch to 5K.

6. Get 48,000 steps in.

Home/Family Goals

7. Read 20 pages of A Boy’s War as a family. Read three chapters of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory to the babies and Silas. 

8. Watch the Presidential Debate together and discuss our thoughts & opinions as a family. (We love having intense discussions on political topics — and are learning to share our thoughts and disagree with grace and kindness!)

10. Have a family movie night.

And here are my goals for this week (basically, just a repeat of last week’s goals!)
