2019 Reading Goals!

My goal isn’t really ambitious. It’s 3 books a week. I can do that. Easily. I read 206 books last year!

But my goal this year is to read more than just romance novels.

Some self-help. Some basic fantasy. I’m going to try all the genres.

Okay, not really, but I am going to try and read something besides romance novels.

I’m currently reading (along with an actual romance novel) “” by Ryder Carroll.

I love my bullet journal. I don’t do a traditional one in a book (I do have books. LOTS of books. Several ones, including the actual that came out this year). But I have a , instead. I got mine from Michaels, and I love it. I can have more than one, and switch them out as I get bored with the color or the design. I have a for my A5. That’s the size I prefer to work with.

Okay, my ADHD is kicking in and now I’m focusing on something different. I was explaining a book I was reading. We’re talking about books here. The planner talk will come later, I promise.

So, my goal is small, but I plan on making CHANGES to what I read. Hey look! That word of the year! You saw it in yesterday’s post too!

As you can see, the goal isn’t too out there. 2014, I read over 300 books. 2015, I don’t think I even DID a challenge. 2015 was a weird year for me. I honestly don’t even remember MOST of 2015 :O

2016 was the full year of me working. I was still only technically part-time, but I remember working 10-15 days in a row. I remember having an “OT battle” with coworkers.

2017 was the year I went full-time. 2017 was the year both kids were starting school during the time Josh would be home.

  1. Oh. 2018. I barely made my goal of 200. I chose several short small books to reach that goal. I read like 4 or 5 books in one day during that time. I didn’t feel like I cheated but I did feel like I could have chosen different books and just dealt with not hitting 200 books for the year!

So, 2019 will be year of making changes to my reading habits. I will read what I enjoy, but I will attempt to branch out. I shared a link on my Facebook (personal, but I will share it right now on my FB blog page).

What are YOUR reading goals?

Project 2016 Weeks 7 & 8

I’m not behind! I’ve had Week 07 done for like half the week, :lol:. I finished Week 08 done on the 31st. I just couldn’t focus long enough to get anything done. But, I’m mostly on top of my Project 2016! And with Project: Life for Android out now, I’m going to be able do even more pages with ease!

Project 2016: Week 07

I worked a double. Doubles aren’t fun, but I finished it. I didn’t mind the hours. I liked the extra day off as well 😉 I am loving Project 2016. I’m getting into the hang of making sure I pick a picture at least once every 2 days for the Project 365 portion of it!

I had to work on Valentine’s Day. Not just work, but had to do a double. So I got to enjoy an extra day with the kids. Though they weren’t too thrilled with it. We at least got pretty flowers.

Project 2016: Week 06

Template: My Turn by LissyKay Designs Pieces: #2016 by Connie Prince Project 2013 by Connie Prince Fonts: Give It Your Heart Medium Graphite Std Bold Narrow Journaling: I worked during the superbowl but it wasn’t too bad. The teams I’m a fan of weren’t in it, anyway. I’m slowly working on getting a better diet, though days off throw it all for a loop. I’m also working on getting things better organized in the little space I have for myself. I’m not 100% sure what or how we’re going to do it just yet. The favorite part was that I got tagged for “nature shots” and I got to play with my camera more than I usually would! http://store.gingerscraps.net/-2016-February-Bundle-Collection.html

And that is almost literal. I’m losing inches all over the place. I am so loving it! It’s all about not allowing myself to eat everything in sight. So far, that’s the only real change I had to make. I like that!

Project 2016: Week 01

It’s only the second week (officially started the 3rd week), but I am already behind. As I shared in yesterday’s post, I’ve been busy, :lol:. It’s okay, though. I’m at least taking pictures. I’m researching desks, cameras, and laptops, so I’m ready to get more productive again!

January came in without much fanfare. It was a good week, winning two out of three Workweek Hustles I’m proud of myself for that. My goal for 2016 is to hit goal as many days as possible. No excuses. So far, I’m doing great at it, too! YAY!

I’ve set a goal of 250 books for 2016 as well. I also want to blog more about my reading; book reviews and things, as well as expanding my actual reading tendencies. Not just romance by some non-fiction as well! We shall see how that goes in 2016!
