Weekly Goals July 4-11

Hooray, I have finally got my priorities tweaked and knew that I had to start making my goals!  Some people are able to make monthly goals- however, I need to have them weekly.  I find I get away from them too easily if I have a whole month…it is a weird mind game I play with myself!

So here it goes, my first set of goals while living in Germany!


Run at least 3 times this week!  Go for 20 minutes each time (easing  back into it).  For the 3rd run aim for 24 minutes!

Complete 2 yoga workouts

Complete 1 pilates workout

Complete 1 Shred OR a toning workout of my own


Allow for a few indulgences on 4th of July.  If I completely restrict, I am setting myself up to binge (just being honest).  So it is simple: If you want a treat have it.

Get back to healthy, natural foods for meals and baking.

Aim to have clean eats with treats thrown in as extras.

Make a new item for dinner at least once

Track food and how it is making my belly feel (prep for doctor appt. on the 15th)


Take 1 hour everyday for my exercise, and mental quiet time.  Usually this would come in the morning when Gavin has a nap.  Read, relax, run, yoga, pilates, baking….just take this time and make it my own without interruption (that I can avoid).

Write in a journal EVERY NIGHT to get out anything that is stressing, bothering or causing anxiety.  Review those stressors and come up with ways to help ease them!

If I need help, ask for it and receive help that is offered.  If I feel like I need to go for a walk on my own, I am going to enlist the help of a neighbor and then offer the same help in return.  If I am feeling like I need help around the house, I will ask Eric to give me a hand.  I will try to stop being in control of everything and just ease up on how much I am putting on my plate!

Do two things that I wouldn’t normally do with the boys.  I always get wrapped up in them getting too dirty or making a mess.  We have been getting past that slowly but surely.  This is something I have been doing the past couple of weeks (painting boxes without restrictions or rules, throwing our packing materials around to make fun climbing piles, messing in the dirt, etc.)


I hope you all have a great week and I look forward to posting these goals on my fridge and keeping to them!!! 

Happy Monday!

  1. Love the idea with weekly goals. And also the goal to do something new with the boys. I need to have a goal like that with Makenzie.
