Better late than never right? I really wanted to get this up yesterday but let’s just say that yesterday was one of those days. You know, the ones where it feels like everything went wrong? I’m just glad that it’s over and now I can just get the post up today instead 🙂
I’ve never done goals before but I thought it was a fun way to keep track of accomplishments and helps me to keep pushing myself to be better. I made a goals list about halfway through November but never posted them so I want to start by posting that and how I did with them and then list what I plan on focusing on for the month of December.
+ focus on words you’re saying/listening well –I wouldn’t say that I did this as effectively as I wish I did but I did find myself stopping and trying to listen better a few times this month, which is a start.
+ focus on submitting –I still feel like I have a lot of work on this one.
spend more time in the word/journaling -I spent a significant more amount of time reading my bible this month and I can tell it had a huge impact on my moods, the way I handled problems, etc.
find a time of day that works best to journal/read your bible -I wrote about the first day I tried reading my bible in the morning here and it didn’t go so well but I preservered after that and I’m so happy to say that I love love love reading my bible in the morning now. It’s easily become one of my favorite things to do.
+ workout twice a week -I did work out once a week since I started the goal which is an improvement but not quite what I was looking for. Tommy and I also set up a schedule to work out on Tuesdays and Thursdays so hopefully this will help keep us on track.
+ eat less refined foods -This one was hard to track because I don’t really know how much refined foods I was eating before making the goal to really compare, but I think I did a little better. I also bought a real food eating plan and course about what is good and bad and recipes to go along with it so I’m excited to start that.
finish reading Love and Respect -Done! I wrote a review for it here- it was great!
+ read two other books -I started One Thousand Gifts but didn’t finish it.
+ focus on words you’re saying/listening well
+ focus on submitting
+ continue spending mornings with Jesus
+ thank Jesus for “mundane” gifts
