Goals for April 2019 *Update*

Hey there!

Last month i shared my goals for April, and today i’m going to tell you how i did with my April goals…

april 2019 goals update

  1. Lose 7 pounds – I failed last month to lose any weight, in fact i gained weight, so i’m really going to hit it hard this month. I’ve been struggling since the middle of February to lose weight at a good and steady pace. I lost some this month (3 pounds), but missed this goal. 
  2. Read 4 books – I’m doing pretty good hitting all my book reading goals and i want to continue doing well, so i’m setting a smaller goal this month. I was able to accomplish reading 4 books in April! 
  3. Get 10,000 steps every day – I’m lowering it down this month, only to take some pressure off of myself. I’m starting to feel myself getting burnt out from big goalsThere was only one day in April where i didn’t get over 10,000 steps.
  4. De-clutter my closet – My closet is in desperate need of attention. My goal this month is to get it cleaned out and organized. I was so happy to clean out, organize, and de-clutter my closet. I’m so glad i made this one of my goals for the month and that i was able to do it!

I feel like the past couple of months i’ve been super struggling with reaching all my goals, i’m really going to push myself harder this month to reach my goals. How are you doing with your goals?

Goals For March 2019 *Update*

Hi Guys!

Last month i shared my goals for March, and today i’m going to tell you how i did with my March goals…

march goals 2019 update

  1. Lose 5 pounds – This is the same number i had last month, and i think it’s doable again for March. I failed this goal big time! I actually gained 1 pound! 
  2. Read 6 books – This is a jump from my previous months of reading 4 books, however i think it’s totally doableI’m excited that i was able to complete this goal! I did a lot of reading in March!
  3. Get at least 15,000 steps each day – It was tough to get 15,000 steps every day last month, that’s why i don’t want to increase it yet. Yes, i was able to complete this goal again! 
  4. Go on 2 field trips – We didn’t go on any field trips last month, so i really want to go on 2 this month. We did go on 2 field trips, finally! 
  5. Remodel our camper trailer – We have an older camper trailer, that we temporarily fixed up a few years ago. Now we are really wanting to do a full makeover on it. I really hope we can get it done this month. We started taking apart the camper trailer, only to realize how badly rotted all the wood and everything was. So after gutting everything from inside, we have put a hold on the project to decide our next steps. 
  6. Plant a garden – With Spring right around the corner, now is the time for us to start planting. We got several things planted and we are about to plant more this weekend.

 

As you can see, i accomplished most of my goals for the month, however I’ve just been in a funk lately and working out/eating healthy have been incredibly hard for me. And that shows with my lack of weight loss. I’m really hoping i can pull myself together for April.

If you set goals for yourself in March, i’d love to hear how it went for you. Did you crush all your goals? Did you struggle to accomplish them?

Valentines, Colds, and Goals… {Life Update}

Hi Guys!

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day, and if you don’t celebrate, then i hope you had a wonderful Thursday! Fun Fact: My husband proposed to me on Valentine’s Day, 16 years ago. It seems like so long ago, i was just a baby then (17 years old).

We have been battling a cold in our house for the past week, so that is why there hasn’t been much new content on the blog. The 2 year old has it really bad, and is not really napping because of the cold. Which, if you are a work from home mom, you know those nap times are when all the work magic happens, so if they stop taking the naps, your whole schedule gets messed up. But it’s fine, it’s fine. He is on the mend (he actually took a 2 hour nap today), so i’m back on track.

One of my goals for February was to put out 3 blog posts every week, but i don’t want to just put out content for the sake of putting out content, i want it to be good/useful content. So far, it looks like i’m going to make that goal, but it would be super helpful if you (Yes, YOU reading this blog post) could leave me a comment and let me know what else you would like to see/hear about… Do you want more homeschooling things? Mom life/parenting? Food? Animals? Books? Fitness?… Let me know in the comments.

I did this crazy thing recently, well crazy for me at least because i’m such a big introvert. We joined a homeschool co-op. It had really been a goal of mine to get out there, and meet new people, etc. So i heard about a new co-op in my area starting, and i went to the information meeting, and ended up signing the family up to join. This was a huge step for me. HUGE. It has turned out to be pretty great though, the kids are loving it, and all the people there are so friendly.

That’s about all the news i had to share. I hope you all had a fantastic week.

Take care,

Happy Holidays

Hi Guys!

I kinda fell off the Blogmas wagon, but for my first time ever doing Blogmas i made it 17 days, so i’m pretty proud of myself for that. Especially since i didn’t plan to do Blogmas at all, i only decided to do it on the actual first day of Blogmas!

Hopefully i will do it again next year, and be able to make it all the way through.

I hope you all had an amazing Christmas. We were really hoping to have a white Christmas, but that didn’t happen. However, a few days after Christmas we got a good dusting of snow, so the kids were happy with that.

Right now we are really looking forward to the new year, i’m already starting to work on a list of goals for 2019. I’d love to hear what some of your goals are for the new year.

That’s all i really wanted to say, i hope you all are doing well.

Oh and If you are a blogger yourself, be sure to stop by again tomorrow, as i will have my 2019 blog planner up on my blog for free!

Until then, take care!

My parents visited last month and while they were here they built us an amazing chicken coop!

My girls are so spoiled!

Speaking of the chickens, they are all still doing really well. Hazel, our crooked beak chicken, is struggling to gain weight. However, we think we have found a better way for her to eat and she seems to be doing well.
