Just Keep Moving!
Life is busy and in the midst of all that busyness, it’s easy to end up at the end of a week (or month!) without having really accomplished anything. It is so true that if you aim at nothing, you will hit it every time.
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 √
This Week: Run/Walk at least 25 minutes 4 days (hopefully increasing my running time during each outing)

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 pretty well with this one with only a couple of exceptions.)
Have one-on-one devotion time with 11 year old 4 mornings √ (we managed 3–yeah! We also had two dates this week.)

One-on-one exercise time with 11 year old 2 mornings (My daughter has become interested in joining me on my exercise outings, so I’m jumping on this opportunity!)

Each week I choose a project to work on ten minutes a day (read why here).

For the last three weeks I’ve been wanting to try your Take Ten, even putting it on my To Do list. But I never made time for it. I LOVE the idea, I just need to actually DO it. No excuses.
I know exactly what you mean. I have a hard time doing it some weeks too! 🙂
