April Goals

Ugh!  April is flying by.  My goals group met March 30 to go over our plans for April but I never got around to posting them here.  There's been a lot going on around here, and I'll detail it all out in a future post or two, but for now here's a recap of March and look at what I'm hoping to get done in April.

Chair in the Shade April Goals
March Recap
  • Read four books- No go, only got through three.
  • Daily devotions- Did pretty good.  We'll call it a win.
  • Exercise five times a week for 30 minutes a time- Only managed about four times a week.
  • Finish kitchen curtains- Ah... no.
  • Make one item of clothes for me-
  • Plan meals- Worked on it.  Made some things that allowed leftovers for work lunches and worked at making good food choices, but didn't actually plan meals.
  • Write daily in some form: mail out a card to a friend, journal, writing exercises- Did better, but still didn't make it everyday.
 So, while I made progress on a lot of goals, I just didn't get as much finished as I had hoped.

April Goals
  • Read four books.  I know I list this one every month, but my goal is 48 books a year, so I need to break it down to bite size chunks.
  • Daily devotions and prayer time.  I've been reading a book about prayer and have really been striving to incorporate it into my daily life.
  • Exercise five times a week for 30 minutes a time.  Repeat of last month's goal, but now that it's getting a little nicer, I'm hoping to get out more.
  • Limit myself to $20 pocket money.  This is for things like coffee, snacks at work, online shopping, clothes, ect.  I'm trying to declutter my life and by not bringing in a bunch of new items, I'm hoping to make headway.
  • Declutter home.  I've thinned out my clothes last fall, but there's things like dishes, craft supplies, books, and more that I can do better at.
  • Write daily in some form.  Just can't seem to get this down!  We're trying again in April.
