April Goals

It's a new month, which means a new list of goals for the month!
Let's take a look back on my goals from last month and see how I did!

March Goals

For Myself:

Journal at least once a week. I journaled a total of three times.
I'd say this was a success, but I'd still like to do it way more!

Spend time in the word. I've been doing way better with this!
I've made some good progress, but know it still needs to be better!

Give up shopping for Lent. BIG FAT FAIL.

Read a few books. Again, this was a fail. I didn't try as hard as I could have.
I've been opting for tv over books, which is a bit sad!

For the house:

Declutter, declutter, declutter.
I've had so much success in doing #40bagsin40days and have gotten rid of so much!
I still have a ways to go, but I'm going strong and I have a feeling I'm not going to want to stop!

Get back on track with the cleaning schedule.
Success! I never thought I'd get the house back in order after having baby #3.
It's looking good and I'm keeping up with things daily for the most part!

For the family:

Go to church. Fail. This makes me so sad and I really want it to change!
Have Bible time with my kiddos every day.
It happened a few times, but not as much as I'd like!
Go on a few dates with my husband. Hasn't happened. We tried, but didn't work out.

So, I didn't do great, but I did okay.
The month wasn't a complete failure, so that makes me happy!

Now, onto the goals for this month!
 I'm going to do things differently and not break them up into sections.
I'm also going to do fewer and see how that goes for now. I
need to give myself grace because I'm just now starting with these monthly goals
and hello three little children! They sure make life crazy! ;)

April Goals

1. Blog every single day.
Even as I write that I'm so nervous.
I participated in a challenge to do this last year and didn't succeed.
I want to grow my blog. I want to write more. I want to document life more.
So, I'm going to participate in this blogging challenge in hopes that it will help me out!
Some days I will post using Karissa's prompts. Other days (like today!) I will post other things.

2. Workout for 1800 minutes.
That's a whole lot of minutes isn't it?
Or so it seems, but really it comes down to just 30 minutes a day.
I'm participating in the #1800minutechallenge, which you can check out ----> here.
Hopefully this helps me to lose some pounds and feel better about myself and life!

3. Keep up with the #40bagsin40dayschallenge.

4. Use my actual camera more and maybe teach myself something!
Ever since my husband and I got iphones, my canon has rarely been in my hands.
I've used it a time or two, but it's been pretty darn neglected.
I want to use it more to document my everyday life and my kiddos.

That seems like a good amount to me. Hopefully I do better this time around!
What are your goals for this month? How did you do last month?


  1. It sounds so impressive when you say 1,800 minutes of working out! Also, I totally agree about giving yourself grace, I think it's a healthy perspective. Good luck, have a great April!

  2. Good luck. You can do it! Just knowing that you've been able to get the house back in order is a great thing! It's hard with kids as young as yours, so consider yourself a success. Baby steps! You're an amazing mom and doing what's best for you and your family. Hope that this month you can get out for a couple of date nights. If we were closer, I'd be happy to watch the kids for you! ;) Hugs, friend!

  3. Great goals, Kassie! I especially love that you are busting out some decluttering around your house...simplifying is one of my all time favorite things and it makes me happy when I realize I'm not the only one ;) If you need more inspiration, I just wrapped up a two week series on Simplifying on my blog!

    Yes! Less goals = more focus = more success. You go, girl!
