Weekly Goals

Set Goals

Here are my goals from last week:

Spiritual Goals

1. Daily mass and meditation, and rosary. Ongoing.

2. Memorize Psalm 62:2-3 (“My soul rests in God alone, from whom comes my salvation. God alone is my rock and salvation, my secure height; I shall never fall.”)

Family/Mothering Goals

3. Write love note for Michael and hide it in his work bag.

4. Read at least 3 books and two chapters from the Bible to Andrew. (Haven’t decided which books yet.)

Personal Development

5. Get ready and go (on Friday) to the Apple Blossom Wine Festival in Virginia with a friend of mine. Having a “girl’s only” weekend with two of my dear friends that’s I’ve known since High School. I am so looking forward to this! We had a blast! We drank wine, walked, chatted, laughed. It was awesome. ๐Ÿ™‚

6. Exercise on treadmill for 30 minutes, stretch for 10 minutes.

7. Finish and turn in the short analysis paper for my Short Story class. Complete assignment and quiz for Intro to Lit class. (Got my due dates mixed up. The quiz and due date for the paper is next week. Did get the rough draft done, though!)

8. Drink at least 4 glasses of water a day. (I am terrible as much water as I should, so I’m working my way up.)

Blogging goals

9. Plan posts and writing schedule for the month of May. (Trying to get ahead on this!)

10. Continue reading “Past Suspicion” and write book review.

Here are my goals for this coming week:

    About last weeks goals, I think I did pretty good. I worked out almost every day (made it to 12 flights of stairs), ate clean and took better care of myself than I have in quite a while. I networked and in the process found some wonderful new blogs. I posted more items to Ebay (no sales yet but I’m staying optimistic). Most important of all, I let myself be happy. Instead of wasting my energy stressing over stupid things, I managed to blow, whatever the issue was, off. To quote Ricky Bobby “Thank you Dear Lord Baby Jesus”

      That’s great Lorne! It’s pretty impressive that you made it up 12 flights of stairs. ๐Ÿ™‚
      Good luck with your Ebay store.

  2. Looks like your goals are coming together nicely! Good for you! I like how you use your blog as accountability.

      Thanks, Kathleen. It really helps me stay focused knowing that I “have” to post my results and linking to Money Saving Mom. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Carol, you’re doing such a great job of creating balance in your life with spiritual goals as well as goals for daily responsibilities. God keeps interfering with my goals as He did during Lent. My health is so fragile that I’ve decided to set few goals, but keep my habits of daily prayer and getting at least two blog posts done every week. Anything past that is pure gravy for me.

      Thanks, Barb. I’m trying!

      You are doing the most important work of all, Barb, keeping up your prayer life. The world certainly needs more prayer warriors, for sure.
