Reviewing My Progress on 2019 Goals: A 90 Day Check-In

In today’s show, I am taking inventory of the first 3 months of 2019.   This year, I want to make a habit of checking in with myself every 90 days (quarterly) to see how I am tracking against the goals that I set for myself for the year.

I set goals in multiple areas of life: Spiritual, Financial, Health, Marriage, Parenting, Personal Development, and Relationships.

I'll review each area briefly, starting with my PUSH Goal.  This is a concept I learned from Michael Hyatt in a goal-setting course.  A push goal isn't necessarily your most important goal, but it is the goal that will have the biggest impact if you can achieve it.  It can start a domino effect to help you achieve your other goals.

  1. PUSH Goals:  Plan meals each week and track food daily
    1. What is going well:
      1. Planning Meals!  
      2. I did meet with a registered dietitian and that has superseded the tracking goals, in that it’s taking a long time to get my meals planning to make sure that I am getting the 3 macronutrients correct (carbs, healthy fat and lean protein) at every meal.
    2. Could be improved
      1. Not tracking daily.  I’ve gotten better and am tracking multiple days per week, but not daily.  
      2. Macronutrients for the kids for each meal
      3. Better lunches
    3. So, I would give myself a B here
  2. Marriage
    1. Date night 2 times per month (1 out and 1 in)
    2. Be intimate at least 2 times per week
    3. Less screen time--we cut out screens for the kids during the week and as a result, we cut our own screen time

    1. Good
