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. 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 (hopefully increasing my running time during each outing) √ (I actually ran 1.5 miles on one of my runs!)
This Week: Run/Walk at least 25 minutes 4 days
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 great with this goal, especially Thurs.-Sun. when I didn’t work on the blog at all. 🙂 )
One-on-one exercise time with 11 year old 2 mornings 1/2√ (We went for a walk one day.)
One-on-one date with 14 year old X (We didn’t get to the thrift store as planned, but we did have a couple of one-on-one conversations.)
Family outing on Friday afternoon/evening √ (We enjoyed a free dinner –thanks to my husband’s job–and a concert.)
