Monthly Goals for April {2017}

Happy April! Boy am I glad to be done with March. Tell me I'm not the only one who thinks that month is so depressing. It's supposed to be the beginning of Spring but it usually looks more like Winter. Still. And when it does look like Spring, it's rainy.

Not to mention there aren't good holidays. And since I'm not in school anymore, there's no Spring Break. It's just a boring, dreary month in between the winter holidays and Spring/Summer.

Although this year, March at least had one thing going for it: Beauty and the Beast. We saw it twice And I've been listening to the sound track non-stop for more than two weeks now...

Anyway, enough of my rambling. Let's see how I did on my goals in March (hint: not well).

March:


Word of the Year (confidence):

  • Journal every night before bed and include daily personal affirmations.

Spiritual:

  • Attend Church every Sunday and Wednesday this month.
  • Read the book of Esther.

Physical:

  • Drink 80+ ounces of water every day. - This has become a habit so this will be the last time it's on here.
  • Do Country Heat as well as 21 Day Fix Extreme 4 days per week.
  • Only eat out on weekends - and be conscious of what I eat then.

Reading:

  • Read The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers - Instead I read The Importance of Being Earnest and How to Win Friends and Influence People (reviews here).

Marriage:

  • Go on one intentional date per week and we can't repeat any this whole month.
  • Do my Couple Check-In every week this month.

Blog:

  • Post at least 3 times per week
  • Go through the Instarevealed Guides
  • Land at least one sponsored post
  • Finish adding my posts to StumbleUpon

Work:

  • Take initiative and look for work when there isn't anything instead of wasting time.

Home:

  • Organize the office
  • Keep home clean (especially dishes)
  • Switch my closet to Spring and clean it out.

30x30:

  • Catch up with and stick to our budget. We've been pretty terrible about that for the last few months (this is in the 30x30 list because several of my 30x30 items involve saving money).
  • All my "physical" goals could also be in this category.
  • My "reading" goals could also be here.
  • Keep up with our German lessons on DuoLingo.

Lent:

  • I'm giving up drive-through for Lent. -I only went through a drive through twice in the whole month of March!
I did pretty bad this month. But I have high hopes for April!

April:


Word of the Year (confidence):

  • Journal every night before bed and include daily personal affirmations.
  • Work through the "Self Confidence" workbook from my therapist.

Spiritual:

  • Attend Church every Sunday and Wednesday this month.
  • Work through Becoming One: A 30-Day Devotional for Wives by Madison Weaver. (Madison is releasing this ebook to the public on May 1st and I will be sharing my review of it on that day)

Physical:

  • Do Country Heat as well as the 21 Day Fix workouts at least 4 days per week.
  • Eat at least one helping of veggies per day.
  • Be in bed by 10:30 pm to journal and read. Lights out by 11:00.
  • Get out of bed by 7:00 am on work days.

Reading (affiliate links):

Marriage:

  • Go on one intentional date per week and we can't repeat any this whole month.
  • Do my Couple Check-In every week this month.
  • All three books I'm reading this month (including the devotional) are marriage related.

Blog:

  • Post at least 3 times per week
  • Land at least one sponsored post
  • Update pictures in old posts

Work:

  • Take initiative and look for work when there isn't anything instead of wasting time.

Home:

  • Keep our home clean (especially dishes)
  • Meal plan and prep every week.

30x30:

  • Have a "no-spend"month. We have a few things we'll have to spend on that we already know about. But other than that, no spending. No eating out. No silly pointless shopping. And not even groceries. We have so much food in our fridge and cabinets that we really think this is possible.
  • Keep up with our German lessons on DuoLingo.

Lent:

  • Continue staying away from drive-throughs.
Those are my goals! I think they're doable. What are your goals for the month? Thanks for reading!
