2019 Goal Update for Week 2

1. Walk at least 500 miles this year (15 miles down and 485 to go)

I was playing catchup on my mileage this week due to being sick, so I made sure to get in 13 miles this week. My miles included working out on the elliptical machine, treadmill, YouTube videos, and a very interesting Zumba class (I took my 14 year old daughter with me and let’s just say it felt more R-rated than PG-13, but she surprisingly liked it! Lots and lots of gyrating!!).

2. Read two classics or non-fiction books each month Accomplished

How to Be a Good Creature: A Memoir in Thirteen AnimalsRebecca

Being sick made that goal an easy one to mark off:)

3. Buy nothing new this year

Nothing new was bought this week.

4. Have two family game nights each month


Emma’s words were: worried, tricky, awful, terrible, and scared  **They just kept getting worse and worse as the game went on, but at least she won twice:)
Ben’s wonderful words were favored, truthful, and loving           **Emma rolled her eyes:)

This week we played an edible Scrabble game (the chocolate was inhaled after the game!) and a rousing game of Apples to Apples.

5. Take each of my children on an outing by themselves

6. Learn to knit and crochet

7. Publish a book this year

I worked on editing Chapter One this week. I am still trying to pinpoint a more exact time in history for this novel to occur. Right now I am leaning towards 1902 because it is one of my favorite times in history, but we will see where we end up:)

8. Pay off our car this year

I kept my grocery bill for the week right at $100 and worked out a new monthly budget to incorporate adding $100 more to the car payment each month (which hopefully means we will have it paid off by December…yay!)

9. Complete one home improvement project each month

I am still debating on what I should do first. I am leaning towards repainting the stairs because it is quick, easy, cheap, and within my skill set:)

How are your goals coming along? **It is still January, so find some things you are wanting to accomplish this year and write them down, then come back and share it with us!!
