June Goals

I feel like I'm constantly running behind on here! My June goals were all made over a week ago, but I seem to have a hard time getting around to blogging them the last few months.

First, a quick recap of May.  For some reason, May was an abysmal month for me.  Here's what I hoped to accomplish:
  • Spend half an hour writing, three times a week. Fail.  I wrote a handful of blog posts and a few times throughout the month, but not close to this.
  • Walk 10,000 steps three times a week.  Sorta...I came close on this one, but can't be sure because the last week in May, my cellphone died.  Also, in the weeks prior my battery was draining hardcore.  (Probably not a coincidence.) So there'd be times I would take my phone out of my pocket to check my progress only to find it was dead.  
  • Continue to exercise 30 minutes a day, five times a week.  Success!  It's getting harder now that it is hotter, but I try to walk on my lunches and/or in the morning when I get up, and/or with friends, so some days I walk a couple times a day.
  • Memorize ten Bible verses.  I made good progress, but don't have them solidified yet.
  • Finish my prayer cards.  Ah, no.  Not done yet.
  • Increase veggies and decrease grains.  Nope.  I didn't realize how much grains I really eat though, so it was eye opening.
  • Read four books.  Only got two done, which is really putting me behind on my Goodreads goal for the year!
  • Daily devotions and prayer time.  Was doing good, but falling back off the wagon.  I really need to get back in the habit!  Ha!  Typing that totally gave me a visual of Whoopi Goldberg in Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit.  Cracks me up.

And here are the new goals for June, or as I'm taking to call it, "The Month of Finishes":
  • Finish two of the Craftsy classes I'm currently taking.
  • Finish sewing half of the things I've started.  Which, seems very overwhelming now that I've looked through all the half finished projects I have.
  • Finish the five books I've started- or at least decide to not finish them if I'm not interested in them any longer.
  • Finish cleaning my office, which will be easier if I clear out some of the projects.
  • Finish memorizing my ten vereses.
  • Finish my prayer cards.
  • Read four books.
  • Daily devotions.
  • Exercise 5 times a week.
  • Work our a plan for the second half of 2016.
There's a lot on here, but I know clearing up some of this will make more space in my life for new projects.  After awhile, stuff hanging over your head gets suffocating.

  1. Good luck. I'm running a bit behind on my goals for the month too.
