Goal Planning Monday -- a Catch-Up Week

I missed checking in with Goal Planning Monday last week. On Monday night, I told myself that I'd make time to write a post the next day. Unfortunately, Lauren was sick Monday night and I stayed up most of the night with her. I was exhausted on Tuesday, and then came down with the stomach virus we think she had. Thankfully, it only really bothered me for a day or so. By the time I was back on my feet, Goal Planning was way at the bottom of my priority list.

Progress on ongoing goals:
1. Exercise: Even though I didn't feel like running last week, I still made it to kickboxing (both last week and earlier tonight).

2. Bible Reading: I'm at least a couple of days behind. Having my chronological Bible on the family iPad is a good idea most of the time, but it didn't work too well when I had a sick kiddo that spent much of each day curled up on the couch with the iPad.

3. Scripture Memory: I need to make scripture cards for this week (and maybe last week, too). I still practice when I'm stopped at red lights, but I didn't do as much running around last week.

4. Read: I need to count up my books for the year before I forget them. I just started a Jodi Picoult book that's pretty interesting.

5. Blog: I'm not drowning in deadlines, but I'm not on top of my game as much as I'd wish either.

Accomplishments (aka goals from two weeks ago):
1. Catch up with long-term goals. It didn't happen last week, but I'm optimistic.

2. Buy ingredients for new lunch recipes. I not only bought ingredients, I also tried a new one today. I thought it was good, but Lauren still didn't have much of an appetite.

3. Digital Photo Organization wasn't a priority in the midst of feeling on the puny side.

4. I did take care of all the various phone calls I needed to make.

New goals:
1. Catch up with my long-terms goals in terms of Bible reading, exercise, and blogging.

2. Blog about the sewing project that I finally finished.

That's all I'm going to set my mind to this week. I have a calendar packed with appointments for this week and housework that got a bit neglected last week. I'm just going to take this week to catch-up.

I'm adding my list of goals and accomplishments to the others at Mama Manuscripts. The GPM link is back at its old home, and we'd love for you to join us.

  1. You and Kym both had sickness last week. I am so glad it can't be transmitted through the Internet... so I can't catch it from you guys by visiting your blogs.

    I hope you have a much better week and catch up with some of the things you got behind in.

    God Bless and have a great rest of your week.
