Weekly Goals to Achieve Plus Meal Plans

Today marks the first Monday of a new month. I am not finding that a refreshing as I  did earlier in the year. For those of us that are goal setters this is "crunch time". Even when I don't have a lot going on I always seem to feel that unconscious reminder to keep moving, pushing, and accomplishing new things.

If that is only me please do your sister a favor and leave a comment telling me I am insane! Seriously, it would be reassuring to hear how people that don't set goals handle life. I feel like I would be a big ball of nerves not having anything to work towards but in a odd way I wonder if they are better at being spontaneous and trying new things. Just thoughts I think guys!

Let jump into this post now for real!



3 Things I did Last Week


  1. I bought myself new shoes. This may not seem worthy of a "thing I did last week" but it was really exciting for me because my last pair of Sneakers were from Payless on Clearance for $12.00 over 2 years ago. I have now been a gym goer for almost a year and have worn those ol' faithfuls OUT! I was so happy to have found a great pair of Asics on sale at Dick's Sporting goods cheaper than on Amazon. WIN!! I am hoping this will help with some of the joint pain I have been experiencing after workouts. 
  2. I finally decorated for fall, harvest, Halloween...whichever you like to call it. I normally like to get to this the week of Fall because it is may favorite season and really the longest season you can stay decorated for. My attempts failed so I finally took the time one evening last week and am so happy to have it up.
  3. I saved the best for last....I saw Lysa Terkeurst Speak!!! I went to a local church Women's Conference this weekend and the keynote speaker was Lysa. I was so happy that she was just as down to earth as I was hoping and her message was just as encouraging as I needed. 


Goals

My goals this week are a little different than how I typically goal set. They are goals I feel have been laid on my heart and will help me accomplish ALL the other goals I want to accomplish.

1. Rejoice Always
2. Pray without ceasing
3. In everything give thanks

How am I planing to implement this your ask and how are they even goals that will help me create habits, book speaking engagements, or clean my house?

First I am making it my goal to pray about almost everything I do. When I pray it is not going to be a Dear Jesus, give me strength....I am going to try my hardest to listen as well as pray.
Second, I have started my gratitude journal again and I am going to write every little thing that I am thankful for each night. Finally, I am going to simply choose JOY. I struggle the most with finding Joy in all things and even having a Joyful spirit. 

By doing these things I know God will bless my house, my dreams, and the day to day things that I need to accomplish as a wife, mom, and student. 

My only other goals for this week is to have my mentor call, teach a coupon class for a great group of ladies, and get an oil change.
