2020 Goals

Goal Updates for Week 10

**I dropped the Home Improvement goal from my list and replaced it with a $5 Weekly Charity Challenge goal. A few years ago I did a challenge where I tried to get the most amount of food I could get for $5 and then gave it to charity. Recently I have seen more and more needs being unmet at our local food bank, so I thought this personal challenge would be a great way to help out and hold myself accountable.

1. Walk at least 500 miles this year (88 miles down and 412 to go)

I completed ten miles this week by doing Bodyfit by Amy videos on YouTube, walking, and doing the elliptical at the gym.

2. Eat at least five fruits/vegetables every day

I did this for 5 days.

3. Learn Spanish this year

I did Duolingo for 60 minutes.

4. Take a family outing each month

Not yet

5. Have more family game nights

Not yet

*If you need ideas as to what games are fun for families here is a list of our current favorites.

6. Buy more used items and keep track of the savings

Nothing used was bought this week.

Estimated running total saved by buying used for the year: $172**

**I am doing a rough estimate based on how much I could find the items on sale or on clearance at a store for minus what I paid for the items…so its not a perfect guess, but close.

7. Finish my 2019 NaNoWriMo novel (~35,000 words) and publish it before November 1st.

14,120 words and counting…

If you want to check out my novel from last year it is Murder at Kelsey Hall and is free right now with Kindle Unlimited on Amazon.

8. $5 Weekly Charity Challenge


This week, I bought five boxes of instant oatmeal at Kroger to give to a local food bank.

9. Make a spiritual checklist to do with my kids each month

For March, we plan on:

Attending one daily mass

Praying the Rosary on the way to mass

Going to an adoration Completed at the Lenten Mission

Going to confession Completed at the Lenten Mission
