Quest for Happiness

Quest for Happiness: Week Forty Two


  • Long-term Goal: Shape the body I want and become healthier.
  • Last Week’s Goal: Keep working out and enjoying this nice weather while it lasts. Make something new to eat this week.
    • Status: Halfway! I ran/walked 3x last week, which isn’t too shabby at all. Ate pretty well until the weekend (*shrug* I’m getting there) and didn’t end up making any new recipes and not sure I will this week, either, but we’ll see!
  • This Week’s Goal: Keep running despite the cold weather (3x is the goal, this week). Be forgiving if your food intake isn’t the best, especially considering this week officially begins the holiday season.


  • Long-term Goal: Edit all previously written works. Query one.
  • Last Week’s Goal: Write 5x and keep up word count goal.
    • Status: Success!! Though I had two days where I didn’t meet my word count goal, I did write five times, even on the two days where I wasn’t feeling it at all. And the fact that I went from not writing at all to actually writing five days in one week, hell to the yes I’m counting this.
  • This Week’s Goal: Keep up writing (3x, this week, 4x if time allows) progress and remember that this first draft is all about getting the words down, even if they’re shit.


  • Long-term Goal: Read 60 books.
  • Last Week’s Goal: Finish Something Beautiful and write review.
    • Status: Success!
  • This Week’s Goal: Read The Tethered Mage and write review.


  • Long-term Goal: Create and maintain a mindset that taking care of yourself is just as important as everything else.
  • Last Week’s Goal: Enjoy the nice weather before it disappears into misery.
    • Status: Success! 
  • This Week’s Goal: Enjoy Halloween and my birthday!


  • Long-term Goal: Increase output over all three blogs, i.e., post more consistently.
  • Last Week’s Goal:  Keep blogging. Update bio and layout.
    • Status: Success!
  • This Week’s Goal: Write two personal blog posts and one review.


  • Long-term Goal: Manage money with more awareness, start retirement fund and build savings.
  • Last Week’s Goal: Continue to stay on top of it. Create a Christmas budget.
    • Status: Success! Though it does feel like I need to get a second job if I’m going to be able to get everyone what I want to get them for Christmas.
  • This Week’s Goal: Continue to stay frugal and be aware of my finances.

It started to feel like winter, this week, and my mindset isn’t really ready for that quite yet. However, not a bad week at all. And as we creep into November this week and only have two months left in the year, I’m hoping to finish strong with these resolutions!
