Goal Planning Monday for Week of June 20th

. at . 3 comments

Last week was full of recovering from women’s retreat, starting back to work (full-time), and doing even more physical therapy exercises at home. My range-of-motion isn’t coming along as expected. It feels like I didn’t get much else accomplished. I did, but since I didn’t document it, I cannot remember know what it was.
This week’s documentation is below. My goals are as follows . . . 
1. Exercise (4 more weeks of  intense therapy)
  • Walk 25 minutes 3 times a day.
  • Do passive resistance exercises 7 times a day. Incorporate changes from Wednesday’s  physical therapy appointment.
  • Soak in hot tub or bathtub with Epsom salts 2 times a week.
  • Attend pt at the doctor’s office twice.

2. Work (I’m back at work full-time)

Children’s Ministry
  • Transcribe notes from meeting with Pam and plan when to do what.
  • Write letter to teachers/helpers.
  • Finalize summer second service schedule.
  • Gather children’s church materials and print out lessons.
  • Sort out 1st prepare/enrich meeting with new couple.
Small Groups
  • Prepare notebook and address list for class members of Wednesday (66 Love Letters).
  • Call women who didn’t pick up materials.
  • Prepare to lead class.
  • Start arranging Fall schedule.
Women’s Ministry
  • Write out list of what needs doing.
  • Finalize July 3rd details.
3. Miscellaneous
  • Write in my gratitude book daily (with a gel pen in a notebook with purple paper it’s quite fun)
  • Read the book of Jeremiah.
  • Check in daily with maximize your mornings group.
  • Make annual physical appointment for Chip.
  • Finish writing out details for summer bucket list.

Your Turn . . . What are some of your goals in the area of exercise, work and miscellaneous?

 I participate in Goal Planning Monday so I’ll have a record of what I complete each week. I’ll also have a tool to energize my (sometimes) flagging motivation to complete (1) the jobs I tend to avoid or (2) jobs that get overshadowed by the urgent but not necessarily most important items on my to-do list.

    It is very timely that I found your blog with your good habits to guide me. I’m rushing off to water exercise classes at the YWCA right now. I’m fortunate that I am retired and have more time than you, but you also are called in your ministry. Thank you!

    Thank you for these kind and encouraging words, Jan. I find that this blog helps keep me accountable to the good habits I want to do.

    When my back was injured I went to the pool twice a day to walk and exercise. It was the best therapy. Plus being in the water itself was so soothing. I no longer have a gym membership (all I did was go to the pool) and I am looking for an exercise that I love. That is one of my summer goals.

    Debbie here… fellow participant in Goal Planning Monday. I am stopping by all those that linked up, to read their goals, and leave a comment.

    You have a lot of goals there. I have exercise goals also but have not been doing well with them since school was done. I need to get back to being consistent with that. I have all kinds of excuses… none of them good.

    I love the gratitude book idea.

    Good luck with the physical therapy, exercising and soaking.. I hope you feel better each day and get better range of motion… though I am not sure what your injury/problem is… I will have to go back and look at some of your older posts and see if I can figure it out.
