November 2012 – Holy Crap!

1 Nov

So this month I decided to do my goals a little differently – I am going to have goals for the month and then break into weekly chunks to get them accomplished!!

Family/Marriage/Mothering Goals:

Read to Abby her Bible every night for school

Practice memory verses with kids every night

Read 1 storybook/chapters from a book each night to the girls

Write Nick a love note

Take kids to play once a week

Personal Goals:

Start reading again

Schedule exercise each day

Drink More Water

Homemaking Goals:

Make 5 new recipies this month

1 Load of laundry everyday

I also have found a couple month challenges that I have found that I think will be fun to take part in and will also go along with my goals!

The Chocolate Mile:

#21Days is the challenge – check it out – it doesn’t last all month but it sure does sound fun!

Run To The Finish:

Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge – Need I say more? Please let her know I sent you!

Little Girl In The Big World:

She has an awesome page of goals and shared a photo a day challenge that I will be joining!

 

Jock In A Skirt Fitness:

She also posted a fun picture a day challenge!

So what are you waiting for???

The Weekly Chase #8

3 Sep

Last Week:

#1 School Starts For Me! Survive my class and normal duties at home! – I had help at home still as Nick was still on vacation – this week will be the real test – thanks goodness it is only 3 days!

#2 Drink More Water! Still need to work on this dang it!

#3 Keep Nails Painted! I want to be able to paint my nails like Carlyn at Just Keep Sweating :) I didn’t paint hem once I don’t think 😦

#4 Reading With My Girls – This should be easier with it being a requirement for Abby’s school. I was able to keep this goal for 3 of the 5 days – so that is a healthy start!

#5 Meal Planning – Keep it going as Nick goes back to work next week and I won’t have him doing it all for me. We meal planned and Nick was still on vacation (I can’t believe I forgot this) and it still worked great!

#6 Marketing Me – Get back into the groove after some time off. I need to find a routine that works! Yeah – not much of this went on.

#7 Find My Groove – I think that I just need to get to it so that I can get it done! I still just need to figure things out!

#8 Take Some Time – Kind of like #7, but this is so that I can really figure some things out! I don’t think I got me time…I will have to figure this out.

On to this week!!!

#1 WATER! I need to drink more water – no more excuses!

#2 Build Me – I need to get back to me this week as my schedule gets back to normal!

#3 Story Time – Keep this going and the days that it is not homework, I need to just read!

#4 Plan Me Time – The girls start Awana on Wednesday and Nick will have to take them since I am still in class at that time. I figure that I can treat myself to a drink at the coffee shop and read until they need picked up at 8:30 pm. Nick can have some time to do homework and I can actually relax some!

#5 Get My Exercise On – I have some creative ways in mind to get me going back on track

#6 Read – This one is for me….I need to get my mind active again 🙂

Ugh – Late Start To The Week

28 Aug

So yesterday was the first official bad day of the pregnancy. I was so sick. I really didn’t want to even move, but I hate to be the lady that calls out for a headache – even though I know it is so much mroe than that. I sucked it up and even puked in the bathroom trash can a couple times to survive. I did survive and that is key!

So now that I am up and running and have played catch up at work to get to where I need to be – let me give you my weekly chase a day late!

Last Week:

#1 Survive First Week of School – Yeah, this will be interesting I am sure! Oh, I survived but not without fights of morning wake-up times!

2 Drink More Water – I have to! Yeah – I still need to improve this!

#3 Get in cardio and yoga this week! Um, nope. I need an accountability partner for this I think!

#4 Keep Nails Painted – I am going with clear this week :) Clear they are!

 

#5 Story Time – I am determined to make thiswork! This was half done – but we do have homework of reading to the kids from the Bible so that will actually help me with 2 goals!

#6 Meal Prep – I got everything written down and ingredients to boot – except my dear husband got graham cracker pie crusts instead of regualr pie crusts…yeah – change of plans for that night! We are rocking and rollung with this one!

#7 Marketing Me – it is a little lower ont he list as my kids are little higher priority this week! I need to make sure they are successful Yeah I am glad I made this one not so high of a priority as I did just okay. I will make this happen though as a couple weeks go by. I need to make some changes to see what will work.

Okay – On to this week!

#1 School Starts For Me! Survive my class and normal duties at home!

#2 Drink More Water!

#3 Keep Nails Painted! I want to be able to paint my nails like Carlyn at Just Keep Sweating 🙂

#4 Reading With My Girls – This should be easier with it being a requirement for Abby’s school

#5 Meal Planning – Keep it going as Nick goes back to work next week and I won’t have him doing it all for me

#6 Marketing Me – Get back into the groove after some time off. I need to find a routine that works!

#8 Take Some Time – Kind of like #7, but this is so that I can really figure some things out!

The Weekly Chase #6

13 Aug

You would think since I kinda stunk on keeping my goals in week #4 – I would really kick it into gear for week #5 – Maybe my brain knew it was one of the last week’s of summer and just didn’t want to agree with me?? Oh well – here it goes:

#1 – Plank-A-Day – This one I am not I will be able to do for a little while. I am a little sore in belly for some reason and I am not going to push it since I am pregnant and have once had a stillborn. I really don’t plan on going through that again if I can help it.

#2 – Story Time – So Monday night my kids were in trouble and got no privileges, Tuesday was pajamarama where B&N reads them stories, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday I think they were partly in trouble and I feel asleep early. Saturday we had friends over and last night I did get a story in 🙂

#3 – Marketing Me – I am still doing really good on this one and getting things rockin’ and rollin’ for me!

#4 – Mamavation  Bootcamp – First and foremost – I want to thank you all for the help and support you showed me! I was contacted for the interview portion, only to find out that this bootcamp is pretty strenuous – so I declined the interview with them knowing that I fully intended to try out again once I was without child.

#5 – Accountability Partners – I have a couple plans going now!!! Still would LOVE some more!!

#6 – Team Beach Body – Got my order in and can’t wait to keep on going!

Now for week #6 to start and be so much better!!
#1 – Marketing Me – I think this will be a staple on my list as I think the more I make it a priority the more success I will see and have seen!
#2 – Pretend School Has Started – I am going to pretend that school is going so that we can get the girls going with a bath, story, and bedtime routing. Also waking up with breakfast and such…this should be fun in the hopes that the first real week is better!
#3 – Drink More Water – This is a must – I have a very low thirst threshold, but I know I have to drink more since I am providing growth and development to another Ritterbeck. I always laugh when this type of conversation comes up because it just shows how true it is that kids suck the life blood out of you!
#4 – Keep Nails Painted – I bite my nails severely. I like fake nails, but can’t afford to keep them on with another kid on the way and saving for my maternity leave bills and living. I think maybe if I can take pride in some painted nails it might help???
#5 – Story-Time – let’s home we can make some progress on this. I took the kids to the library and I am hoping that will get us excited along with the other two books I bought a week or so ago.
#6 – Breakfast – Getting kids into the routing of eating it, me fixing it, and getting me to eat it too!
#7 Meal Plan – I have to get back into this with school starting up, Awana starting up, possibly Brownies, and my own schooling – AHHH!!!
