My Life Focus

So I made an impossible list. But what’s a list without trying to get through it? You know me. So this little page is where I can find my focus on a quarterly basis.

September – December

Health and Fitness

Tracking calories – I will try to do so every day, but we’ll call it success if I track 5 days a week. At this point, I’m not trying to lose weight, limit my calories, or change my diet. Just trying to form a habit of watching my calories. FINAL GOAL: 45YTD WEEKLIES

Complete Zombies, Run! – Go on a Zombies, Run! mission 1 times weekly (so I want to be on mission 12 on my next focus update)

Walk to Mordor – It is 1,932miles to Mordor. That is 5669454 steps (according to The Calculator Site). I have started this journey before, but I’m going to start over and do it right this time. Right now, I plan on doing 50k steps a week for a total of 17.37miles. FINAL GOAL: 45YTD WEEKLIES


Unpack the house – I want to have this goal complete in September

(After I have unpacked) Keep up cleaning maintenance on the house and car for 12 months – The kitchen and living room should be cleaned at least 5 times a week. The bathrooms, nursery, car, sheets, and laundry need to be completed 1 time a week. The bedroom, dining room, laundry room, and basement need to be cleaned once a month. END GOAL: 45 YTD WEEKLIES; 10YTD MONTHLIES

Education and Reading

I will rotate between Well-Educated Mind, NPR’s list, Read My Own Damned Books (including finishing series, even if I don’t own the whole thing), and just reading whatever I want. I will aim to listen to 10 hours a week.

WEM – Moby Dick, by Herman Melville

NPR – Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, by Douglas Adams

RMODB – The Siege of Macindaw, by John Flannagan

Whatever – The Lost Apothecary, by Sarah Penner


Cross-stitch Groot – I will work on this 1 day per week

Scrapbooking – After I have unpacked, I will scrapbook 1 day per week. My first project will be to organize the pictures that I have into projects.

D&D Campaigns – Currently working on Legend of Strahd with the family

Letters – write 21 letters a week. AT BEGINNING OF QUARTER:42

For my Soul

Attend a mass weekly

Work, blog, and financial health
