I’ve been going through this Bible Study with a young woman I’ve mentoring and it’s been SO good!
Kierstyn has been begging for me to braid her hair multiple times per week.
Micah is a huge fan of solid foods and doesn’t like it if anyone is eating and not sharing with him. 🙂
My mom sent a box for the kids and Kierstyn and David spent a long time trying to get this toy opened.
Right after swimming lessons this week!
While I was with Micah and Kierstyn at swimming lessons, Jesse took David to get a hair cut… and he got hair on him so he was blowing off his sweatshirt and David was very fascinated!
We went to do laser tag with a few other couples on Sunday. It was my first laser tag experience and we had a BLAST!
Our biggest highlight of the week was Kathrynne turning 18!! I can’t believe we have an adult child now! You can read my birthday post for her here.
Here’s my update on my Habits Chart from last week. My goal is to have 5 x’s in each line — and I didn’t hit that at all this past week! I know it had to do with me staying up too late four nights in a row. This meant that I didn’t get enough sleep and was tired and dragging. This, in turn, impacted my productivity and focus and also made little things that usually wouldn’t bother me feel heavier and more irritating.
The beauty of habit tracking is that you can quickly spot areas which are likely contributing to you falling off the bandwagon or just feeling off track/unproductive and you can easily get back on track. By Friday of last week, I realized that I had to make sleep and going to bed earlier a priority. And within two days of doing that, things were in much, much better shape!
Here’s to hoping for a lot more x’s on my chart this next week!
2023 Weekly Goals Update
Every week, I’ll be giving an update on how I’m doing on my goals — since they are weekly goals. I thought it would be fun to do an update with a running total of how many weeks I hit them throughout the year. This week, I hit all of the goals — yay!!
Goal #1: Lose .1% Body Fat Per Week
This goal was pretty easy to hit this week just by hitting my workout goals, making movement a priority, drinking more water, and eating more protein.
Goal #2: Have One Family Dinner Per Week
We had three family dinners last week. I think just prioritizing it by putting it on my goals and daily habits list has made SUCH a difference in me getting creative in finding ways to make it happen!
Goal #3: Finish One Book Per Week
I finished one book last week. My review is coming tomorrow!
Goal #4: Have One Date With One Family Member Per Week
I took Kathrynne to the mall for her birthday to shop for some business casual and dressier clothes. We had so much fun and she found some great options!
Goal #5: Spend 25 Minutes on Organizing/Decluttering Each Week
You can see the decluttering and organizing I did last week here.
Goal #6: Delete 300 Photos/Videos From My Phone Each Week
I deleted more than 300 and it felt good!
Happy birthday to Kathrynne. She was so little when I first started following you. 18 is a big birthday. Time just flies. 🙂

It does fly, doesn’t it??
You have inspired me. I did a twist starting today of the habits. I am making 9 daily/habits for month of February – created chart in excel. I have never done anything like this, but I am optimistic.
My activities for Februry:
Move 1 mile
Drink 1/2 gallon water
Read 30 minutes
Listen 30 minute audiobook
1 collagen serving
Empty sink by bedtime
15 min organizing clothes
One comment: I work full time from home during traditional business hours, so easy to say I will shower later, but work, family, life gets in way – so for me need to prioritize.
