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???

 

 

What’s New Wednesday #22

24 Oct

So yesterday after work I left early to go pick up my kiddos and head back to the gym at work – for ZUMBA!

I made it for Zumba – Score #1

My friend Tonya came and stood in the back with my pregnant self – Score #2

My kids ran and danced and smiled the whole time I got to dance and smile – Score #3

I got an hour of cardio in minus jumping – Score #4

I put this as a What’s New post because I have struggled with finding the motivation to work out since it is freezing here (13 degrees at 10 o’clock this mornig), it is dark even after I get to work at 8:00 am, and I still fight some being tired.

So What’s New? I beat all things that defeated me!

Have you had anything that has defeated you lately? How did you end up overcoming it?

 

Playlist Thursday – Epic

12 Sep

Let’s break out the big songs. The epic ones that will live on forever (good or bad). The anthems, the songs that go down in history as “the song of your generation.”

The rules:

Something Old: Songs that are at least 5 years old. (I know that isn’t too long to be considered old, but music turnover happens quickly.)
Something Current: Songs that have been released within the past year.
Something to Consider: This is the wild card category. Feel free to list any song: old, current, guilty pleasure, underground, whatever.

Something Old:

Artist: Baz Luhrmann

Title: Everybody’s Free (To Wear Sunscreen)

Side Note: This song was really popular when I was in high school – as much as we hated it – it was an anthem we rolled to.

Quotable: “Don’t worry about the future”

CLICK HERE

Something Current:

Artist: Tim McGraw

Title: If You’re Reading This

Side Note: My husband is military and most of my “family” is too. I can’t hear this song and not cry.  It is the anthem that we never want to play.

Quotable: “I won’t be able to see the birth of our little girl”  This was a legitimate fear I had.

BTW – I am in tears just writing this and I bet you will be too if wait to see the end of the video.

CLICK HERE

Something to Consider: 

Artist:Beyonce

Title: Run the World (Girls!)

Side Note: Yes I have done this one before – but seriously chicks – we rock and we need to just own it!

Quotable: “Who Runs The World? Girls!”

Anyone who can fix my issue with YouTube not wanting to post on my blog will win a prize!

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!

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

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