Goal Update for Week 13

1. Walk at least 500 miles this year (132 down and 368 to go)

I completed my 10 miles** this week by walking, taking a Zumba class, swimming, and trying out a couple new YouTube exercise videos. (**Not counting yard work!)

2. Read two nonfiction or classic books each month

Not yet.

3. Try to buy nothing new this year

I bought two new dresses this week (Belk has a lot of great clearance deals right now), but since I used my Christmas money it doesn’t count as a violation for this challenge. Thank goodness for my rules:)

4. Take each child on an outing by themselves each month

Not yet.

5. Have two family game nights each month

We played a couple of rounds of Old Maid this week (always a favorite for Ben)

6. Complete two home improvements each month

This month I am hoping to:

  1. Clean our house’s siding (it is getting a lot of mildew in random spots for some reason)
  2. Replace an older wood exterior door with a door that matches our current front door (which should be free because we kept our old front door when we replaced it with a more energy efficient door a few years ago)
  3. And maybe add gravel to our driveway

7. Edit and publish my NaNoWriMo novel this year

I got back the suggested edits from my friend at co-op (Thank you Ginger!) and now my first four chapters feel much more polished. I printed out the next four chapters and hope to start working on them this week.

8. Try out two new low carb recipes each month

This month I am hoping to try out mini-cheese ball bites and a very interesting Greek chicken gyro recipe I found on Pinterest…so stay tuned:)

9. Learn to knit and crochet

Not yet

10. Keep my grocery spending to under $500 a month

Here’s hoping it works this month…because it failed spectacularly last month…
