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!
Here’s this week’s plan (and an update on last week’s!):
Run/Walk at least 25 minutes 3 days √ ( I ran 1 mile on 2 days, and walked one.)
Run/Walk at least 25 minutes 3 days
I had a really busy week last week, so my only family goal was to have some family time on Tuesday or Wednesday night. √
(Keeping it simple again, because I have several appointments this week.)
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
Each week I choose a project to work on ten minutes a day (read why here).
Last Week: Writing project. √
This Week: Blog project.
drink 8 glasses of water daily (see my DIY drink reminder magnets here) 1/2 √
take cod liver oil capsules daily 1/2 √ (I remembered 3 out of 7 mornings.)
eat veggies every day √

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.)
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. 🙂 )
Do you have some areas in which you want to accomplish more? Leave a comment about your plans for this week.

I just love your site and everything you blog about. It’s so real and uplifting! I noticed the past few weeks you have been working on a life list. Did I miss what this is or is it a secret?
Hi Amy- So glad that you like the site. As far as the life list, I intend to write about it but I am still working through it because I want to make it great–haha! I will try to do a preliminary post soon. 🙂
