One way to reach your goals is to write them down. I like to post mine for extra accountability. It tickles me to no end when I get a reminder from one of you ladies to post an update. Thank you for that! There were a few times last year where I just wanted to eat a pint of ice cream, rub my tummy and watch Netflix but one of those reminders would come just in time. Not that I don’t enjoy that scenario! Haha! Moderation. Because I have a lot of smaller goals to help get me to my ultimate goal of creating a life that I love, I’m only going to post a few for now.
I choose to do all of these things in my own enthusiastic fashion because I love to see people smile. The added stress of work and what I’m going to do next is what has me worn out. Because my main goal is to create a life that I love, I have a lot of scary decisions to make.
Thankfully, I have a small break coming up so I can take a few days to breathe and work on an action plan.
One of the main things I’d like to do for myself during my vacation is read “Discover Your Nutritional Style” by Holli Thompson. I have already taken a peek through the first two chapters and I love that she recognizes the individual. While I don’t take anything one person says as “Bible” or the whole truth because we’re all different, I don’t like to keep myself in a box. We can all learn a little something from everyone. Good grief, I sound skeptical. I’m not, I promise. Haha!
This post was fueled by fumes. I gotta head to Starbucks!
A few months ago (whoa time is flying), I posted my Fall goals. I’m proud to say that I’ve ticked most items off the list! Huzzah!
We finally made it to the pumpkin farm this past weekend. Thank goodness for by-weeks because college football has been dictating our Saturdays. Boo!
How are you doing with your goal list?
This post was fueled coffee, a dark chocolate, nuts & sea salt KIND bar and Two Door Cinema Club (they’re one of my faves).
Revisiting goals set earlier in the year:
Blogging- I’m still working on my blog redesign.Yup. There’s that and there goes my hair….as i pull it out. Ugh! I’m right on the edge of paying someone to do it for me. The only thing stopping me is the fact that I change my mind. A LOT. By forcing myself to figure out some light coding and design, I know that I’m giving myself more control. Lawd! It’s just daunting.
Color schemes, icons and infinite possibilities. I need to be more decisive and practical. I’m over here like, I’m going to have sequins and glitter in the background with a metallic rainbow hanging from a unicorn’s butt. Meanwhile, my drawing skills are limited. I’m trying to wiggle myself to the top of Mike’s freelance list so he can draw for me (hello, unicorn). He keeps pointing out the fact that his clients have money and we use that stuff for pesky things like food and rent.
I also need to do more…blogging. Ahem.
Nutrition and Fitness- I’ve been progressing nicely in the fitness category. Awesome.
Y’all know that I’ve had my fair share of drinks and cookies this year AND pumpkin season is just starting. Help. Me! I have been scouring Pinterest in order to find some healthier versions of my pumpkiny favorites. Otherwise, I’m going to add a helluva lot more cardio to my routine.
I hate cardio. I love pumpkins. All aboard the struggle bus.
Decorating- I bought pillows for the living room, a new shower curtain, a mason jar soap dispenser and storage for under the bathroom sink. It’s the middle of August so I’m obviously failing at this goal. I bought all of those items in one shopping trip so its not even like I’ve been progressively working on beautifying my life. Too much Netflix after baby’s bedtime, not enough sewing. However, I recently finished watching Six Feet Under (Amazon Prime). OMG! I almost cried my face off. Must see!
Have you watched a series that just left you on the verge of needing therapy or a hug?
