Well, last week didn’t quite pan like I had planned… I ended up getting mastitis on Tuesday and was pretty much bed-ridden Wednesday through Friday. Because of this, I didn’t get as many of my goals finished this last week as I had hoped. But that’s okay, my body needed to just rest!

My 10 Goals For This Week (+ an update on last week’s goals)

As I mentioned in the weekly update post, I’m so grateful to be feeling so much more energetic now that I’m not pregnant, I’m mostly recovered from the birth, and my hemoglobin is back up. And it’s been so fun to get back to goal-setting!

Some of you wrote in concerned that I’m doing too much or pushing myself too hard. I really appreciate your concern, but I want you to know that I am pacing myself. However, setting goals (when I have energy!) is something that gives me so much life! It motivates me but in a really life-giving and fulfilling way.

I know not everyone is the same way and it’s not like this in every season, but right now, I’m having fun setting goals and being intentional about working on them. And I promise I am pacing myself and taking plenty of time to savor the very full and wonderful season of life I’m in!

Here’s an update on how I did on my goals last week:

This Week’s Goals

1. Walk on the treadmill for at least 10 minutes five times.

My Goals For This Week (back on the goal-setting bandwagon!)

I took the last few weeks off from setting goals as we were adjusting to life with the sweet newborn baby we are fostering. He needs a lot of extra time and care because of some health issues, so I just focused on loving on him and finding a groove.

I feel like we really have gotten into a good groove and I decided to jump back on the goal-setting train this week — even though I’m 38 1/2 weeks pregnant and moving pretty slow as a result! 🙂

Here’s an update on how I did on my goals from the week of March 30, 2020:
