I took the last few weeks off from setting goals as we were adjusting to life with the sweet newborn baby we are fostering. He needs a lot of extra time and care because of some health issues, so I just focused on loving on him and finding a groove.

I feel like we really have gotten into a good groove and I decided to jump back on the goal-setting train this week — even though I’m 38 1/2 weeks pregnant and moving pretty slow as a result! 🙂

Here’s an update on how I did on my goals from the week of March 30, 2020:

Week 13 Goals for 2020

1. Get in 54,000 steps total. (I use the FitBit Ulta HR to track my steps every day.)
