(I hope to recap my goals and why I am or why I am not achieving them each month.)
Physical: Drink 5 mugs a day, get 8 hours of sleep and run a 5K.
Drinking - I give myself a D. I was doing well for like a week! I never did write it down, so that's the action point again. As for the 8 hours of sleep, I give myself a B. It happens at times, but not consistently. Right now we have a newborn in the house so unless I nap or go to bed at 6pm, that is just not happening!! I actually signed up for a 5K. MAY FIRST, people, I have until May FIRST!! I rocked the workouts this month (w/the exception of this past week - more on that later). I have been doing the 30 days w/Jillian and I made it to level 3. As a friend pointed out, level 3 is easier than level 2!! Out of the 30 days, I think I did at least 20, so I give myself an A there. The past week I received an F, but my excuses are that my grandfather passed away and I spent a day going to pick up the newborn at a hospital an hour away. Also, I wasn't feeling well. This week I really need to push myself even harder and I am looking forward to the challenge! I can do it!!
Personal: Weekly planning time, bi-weekly date w/Dave, 2 hours me time and attend a women's retreat.
My weekly planning time still is not on track. I get a C- there. I did write our schedule (getting crazier now that we signed up for more stuff!) out in a public place, so we didn't miss anything. However, I didn't plan meals, or at least not too many. Dave and I did secure a once a week babysitter for 2 hours after the kids go to bed so that is really helpful! We have had one date and are going again this week. We get an A+ there!! In regards to the 'me' time - I went to a women's coffee...I think I get a B- here. I tried, I really did, to have scheduled me time. It's just not happening yet. No leads on the women's retreat yet either...
Spiritual: Track Bible reading, family devos, and a missions trip
Oof...we have been going through a Bible study using the Purple Book, so I have been doing plenty of reading, just not on my own. Can I claim a B here? As a family, we decided that we want to do more scripture memorization. It's been pretty easy for me to do that, a verse or 2 each week, and easy enough to include Moses. That kid complains when I practice w/him but then when we least expect it, he busts out w/the whole thing memorized like he had someone else practicing w/him! He motivates me! I've got to keep up w/him, right? Again, the missions trip is a longer term goal...
Well, I like writing about these goals each month. It really helps me focus and attempt to eliminate excuses. It's good to examine my behavior and publicly humiliate myself! (Kidding...mostly...)
