Life is busy and in the midst of all that busyness, it’s easy to find yourself at the end of a week (or month!) without having really accomplished anything*.
To ensure that I’m living life on purpose, I make a weekly plan. I started calling it my Just Keep Moving List to encourage myself that even though I may be slow, I’m making progress!
I use this Weekly Planner to help me get a view of the week at a glance. It makes a huge difference in my being able to focus on what’s important each day. (You can click here to see all of the FREE printable planners I have available.)
Here’s this week’s plan (and an update on last week’s!):
Run/Walk at least 25 minutes 4 days; Run at least 1.5 miles on one of my runs. √ ( I ran 1.6 miles–woohoo! )
Run/Walk at least 25 minutes 3 days (I have a busy week so I am cutting myself some slack.)
Date with hubby √
Driving practice with son √
Confine blog work and writing to before 9 am, 1 hour at lunch and a couple of hours in the afternoon/evening √ (I did well again this week!)
Girls outing with my 3 daughters √ (We had a great time at a local amusement park. I was able to get tickets for all of us for $45 total!)
One-on-one date with 15 year old X (Didn’t make this happen. )
I have a really busy week, so my only family goal for this week is to have some family time on Tuesday or Wednesday night.
Each week I choose a project to work on ten minutes a day (read why here).
Last Week: Writing project. √
This Week: I’ll be working on the writing project again.

Even a little progress is moving in the right direction!
(*Just a Note: It’s good to remember that our value is not based in what we accomplish and depending on the season of life you are in, you may be doing well just to get enough sleep and get everyone fed for the day, so don’t be too hard on yourself. )
