Thursday – make sure all clothes are put away prior to going to work (friend arrives today!).
Friday – Friend in town! Have fun!
Saturday – Friend in town! Have fun!
Sunday – prep for the coming week (pack lunch; pick up house; do laundry; grocery shop; etc.)
Though, I'm not sure the above will actually work out. Today we're celebrating Father's Day with the husband's family. This will put a dent in time available to write said thank you notes. I'm still going to give it a shot, but I might only get 5 done instead of the 10. Here's my amendment for the week:
Write 20 Thank You notes over the course of the week
Cook dinner at least one night this week (probably either Tuesday or Wednesday, but maybe not till Saturday or Sunday)
Go to the gym TWICE (I went twice last week! Yay!)
Clean up Kitchen, bathrooms, clean up living/dining room, and clean up spare room (mainly put away clothes) before Thursday when friend arrives (I started a bit of the kitchen cleaning last night)
Pack lunch for Monday on Sunday night.
Basically the same list just opening it up to be moved around various days instead of sticking to the previous order. Sometimes you just have to move things around. Life is about balance. I'm NOT going to miss out on dinner with the family just because I have a to-do list. I'll figure out another time to get these things done. If only I didn't need so much sleep...
plan for blogging: JUST DO IT. More
specifically, I’m going to make sure I post on Mondays from now on. Might be first thing in the morning, might
not be until before I go to bed at night but I WILL post EVERY Monday.
So, here we
go… First Monday blog in a loooong time!
I’m going to the gym! I went ahead and
packed my gym bag this morning so I’m all set to go right after work. In addition to the gym, I need to get to
organizing/cleaning my house a little because we have a friend coming in from
out of town next week!
Next week I’ll
be focusing on daily goals.
write at least 10 thank you notes.
Tuesday – cook dinner and clean kitchen.
Wednesday – go to gym and clean bathrooms.
Thursday – make sure all
clothes are put away prior to going to work (friend arrives today!).
Friday – Friend in town! Have fun!
Saturday – Friend in town! Have
Sunday – prep for the coming week
(pack lunch; pick up house; do laundry; grocery shop; etc.)
Obviously, these aren't the ONLY things I'll be doing on those days, but they are the one thing I want to make SURE happens.
Week of June
25 – Pack lunches at least 3 days. (I
really need to get back on this regularly!)
keeping track of my post-wedding to-do’s I’ve officially started the name
change process (Social Security office) and hope to do the other major part (Secretary
of State/License update) this week.
After that I just have to change my name with work, banks, credit cards,
doctors, etc. If you have any
suggestions on anything I might have overlooked, let me know!
thing – I just cannot manage to get into regular posting.I want to, and then I get lazy.So, this week’s resolution (even though now
the week is half over!) is to figure out a way to get myself to post every
I have GOT to get back to the gym. It’s
been over a month since I’ve been and I miss how good I feel when I work out
regularly (it’s also been over 2 weeks since I’ve done ANY sort of fitness
activity at all – I’m DEFINITELY starting to feel it).
June 4 – Get back in to posting EVERY week on the blog - IE: Stop being so lazy about typing up a few sentences!
June 11 – Get back to the gym!
After that... well, I haven't thought beyond next week. I'll think about it and hopefully have a definitive answer on Monday on what the June 18th week will look like. :-)
May 14 – Get all wedding gift info logged on spreadsheet and start name change process
May 21 – Work on getting at least half of thank you notes out and get back to regular working out (at least 3 times this week)
Clearly, the wedding happened (it was great! Maybe I'll get around to posting about it soon) and in those last weeks of planning, it happening, and the week after I just sort of fell off the blogging bandwagon.
However, I’m back and ready to re-commit myself to this project I started!
This week’s goal is mainly in the terms of research (name change) and a small amount of computer work. I’m rather busy this week (dance showcase is on Saturday!) so I didn’t want to include anything too time consuming.
If I’m REALLY lucky, I can take a long lunch on Thursday and go to the social security office to start the name change process. If that DOESN’T happen, then I’ll gather everything up and get it done ASAP next week. My goal is to get the biggies of name changing (SS card and license) changed before May 28th.
I’m starting to slack on this whole blogging thing – Sorry! I think I’ll make it next week’s goal to blog TWICE that week ;-)
April 2 – Create and stick to STRICT workout schedule (wedding is in 4 weeks! Yay!) April 9 – Track nutrition & fitness (using SparkPeople) and create wedding To-Do List April 16 – Blog TWICE this week and work on wedding To-Do list
So, last week I printed out a monthly calendar and wrote in things I knew were coming up. I tried to place as many workouts (home, gym and dance) in as possible without becoming overwhelmed. So far, so good. Have I stuck 100% to the calendar, NO. Have I managed to still fit in as many workouts as I wanted to, YES! For example, this week – I had planned to workout Wednesday after work but we ended up meeting up with Matt’s sister. SO, instead, I got a workout (in addition to dance class) in on Thursday. I always forget how GOOD I feel when I work out regularly!
I started using SparkPeople again to track my food and fitness. So far so good. My only problem – I pack a TON of food in the morning and still end up with a much lower than I want calorie range. For instance, today I packed breakfast, lunch, snack AND dinner, but I’m 300 calories shy of where I should be. So, with that in mind, I’ll be adding something in! I’m looking to lose weight, not starve myself! (I’m thinking a Dunkin Donuts Veggie Egg white Flatbread – Delicious!)
Next week – Blog and wedding. Life will go something like – work, eat, wedding stuff, sleep and repeat (with a few other things thrown in there like my soon-to-be nieces first birthday, working out, and dance). :-)
