June Goal Check/ July Goals!

Last month I decided to finally get on the goal bandwagon, and I am so glad I did! I love having a goal to work towards. Things that I normally would let slide, I have actually worked hard at getting done! It feels so good to mark things off of the list!!
Here are the results from June...
 *quiet time every day- well, to keep up with this and the exercise I put check marks on my calendar. I only had two or three days without checkmarks.  I know these were days that we were gone or super busy! I was really happy and I can tell you I have felt much better making sure that I sit aside time for God every day.
*exercise at least 3 times a week!! WOOHOO!! I actually did this...from my check marks I exercised around 5-6 times a week! I can totally tell a difference!
*read 3 books- FAIL....not sure what is wrong, but I am having a hard time getting into reading. Back a few months ago I read like 6 books at a time. I am wondering if this did something crazy to my brain and now it just needs to rest!
*2 dates w/ hubs- Yes! We did this. 1 date was our anniversary and the other was dinner! We have got to get better at putting our marriage and each other first!
*1 day a week no technology! FAIL....I had actually forgot about this one. I am truly going to work at this during the month of July. I am hoping if I go ahead and set a specific day of the week aside for this it will work out better!
*get enrolled in college! YAY! This is finished...just waiting on a few more last minute things!

Overall I think I did pretty good for the month of June. Now on to my goals for July!
*exercise at least 3 times a week- I am going to keep this one on the list so that it will hold me accountable!
* read 2 books- I am going to try this again!!!
*2 dates w/hubs!!  I think this time we are going to do 1 at home date (just watch a movie at home), and then one go out date! I love date nights! It is such a great thing that I totally recommend for every married couple!
*1 special date w/just Jagger- I love getting to spend one on one time with my boys! When Hudson came home I really tried to make sure that Jagger didn't feel like he had been pushed to the back burner! I am going to try this month to take Jagger and do something just the two of us!
*have a family over for dinner- This is one that I am going to start doing all the time! I really want to teach my kids hospitality and plus we just enjoy being around other people. I would like to start having over a family for dinner and I would like it to be a family that we don't spend time with on a weekly/daily basis!
*stay under budget (eating out, etc)- The Cohn's are back to the budget! Boooo......and when I say budget I mean tight budget no budging! We are trying to get some things paid off and this is the only way we can really buckle down to get things done.
*HAVE FUN!!!   This is the last month I have before I become a working momma! I am going to enjoy every second with my kids!! We are going to have as much fun as possible!!
(I didn't add in quiet time this month because I want this to just happen, not be a goal. I know it needs to happen every day, so I am just going to do it!)
Well, there you have it..July Goals! I am ready to conquer the month!
Hope everyone has a blessed day!
Lots of love..


  1. Great job using the check marks to stay accountable! And college?? That is so awesome Megan! I will be praying all the pieces fall into place..such a great gift for yourself and your family.

  2. I'm pretty sure I commented on your last month goal list that I was going to make a goal list....FAIL!!!! OK, maybe next month--LOL!

  3. Back to school for mama!!!!! GO girl! You can do this. I may be getting a second degree...maybe this one will be more profitable. We could be in this together :) I needed to put a C only date on mine but failed to...mommy fail? Proud of you! xo Amanda

  4. Way to go for going back to school! I started back this month, and it has been an adjustment, but do-able, so far :) Way to go with all of your June goals, and your July goals look great. My budget is always on my list :) I have a horrible time with groceries. Good luck, and I can't wait to hear how you do this month!

  5. I love that you scheduled in fun, I think everyone should set time aside to have fun. Sometimes we need to remind ourselves to do this! You kicked butt last month!! You are going to crush it in July! Enjoy your date nights!
