goals for the week

Posted on Aug 29, 2011 in Motivation

Review of last week’s goals

  • Research and implement ways to up my magnesium and potassium intakes. Fail. Didn’t even remember this was a goal.
  • Write three blog posts a day. Done. It wasn’t easy, but I did it. I think I’m going to stick to two posts a day just for my own personal sanity, but I did really like the amount and mix of content that having three posts a day gave me. Maybe some day? How did you guys feel about the increase?
  • Burn 2500 calories this week. I hit 2077, which I don’t think is too terribly shabby. Success!

Goals for the week of August 29nd

Pack my lunch every night before bed. For some reason, even though I have plenty of time in the evening, I always procrastinate packing my lunch until the morning. It takes me a while (because I measure and track all my food) and it can be a big frustrating task that early in the morning.

 

Chill out for at least an hour a day. I have a brain malfunction where I think when I’m relaxing, I wasting time. I really want to try to embrace the idea of relaxing. And not feel guilty about it. So for an hour each day: no blogging, no writing, no working. Just doing something for no other reason than I want to.

 


What are your goals for this week?

  1. I’m with you on BOTH of these!

    My goals:

    1) Get to the gym once. Yes, that’s how bad it’s gotten.
    2) Try at least one new recipe from Peas and Thank You.
    3) Remember to take my vitamin and carry around my water bottle!

    • Let me know how the Peas and Thank You recipe turns out. I gave the book away, but don’t even have one of my own!

  2. I try to check my goal lists daily so I don’t forget things. Things still manage to slip through the cracks though. Good luck this week!

    My Goals:
    1) Finish up the new site. I’m just working on the details now, so this should be done by the end of the week.
    2) Make the Banoffee Pie I’ve been meaning to make forever.
    3) Figure out what kind of scones I can make with the ingredients I already have.
    4) Work in the Living Room this week to get it cleaned up and organized.
    5) Make Anniversary gift for my husband.
    6) Store enough milk so that our Anniversary can also be date night!

    I should probably throw in exercise. But I’m burning a ridiculous amount of calories a day just from breastfeeding and carrying the baby everywhere. Woo. Shedding baby weight was a breeze! But I could still stand to get what’s left of my body back in shape.

    • Pinterest has gotten me obsessed with Banoffee Pie. MUST MAKE ONE.

  3. Loved the increase! Maybe try upping to three posts once or twice a week? However, I obviously understand if your sanity takes precedence over my nosiness. Good luck on the goals!

    • Awesome idea! :D

  4. I really enjoyed reading all of your posts this week. I don’t think I did a lot of commenting but I read almost all of them. You still kept the quality good, which is important. But good lord girlie, I can’t even keep up with one post a day so I don’t blame you for going nuts over it!

    Also, I tried spark people this week to keep track of my nutrients and I absolutely love it! Thanks so much for recommending it. My downfalls were not getting enough iron and Vit. D. I take a Vit. D supplement, but since I eat mostly vegan the iron part is a struggle. I’m working on getting more leafy greens and iron-rich beans in every day. I found I got extra potassium by adding more fruits. :) Nectarines, melon and dried apricots are esp. high. Good luck!

    • So glad you are liking SP! :)

  5. I loved reading all your posts! I like Laurel’s idea of posting three times maybe once or twice a week. Great goals this week!

    • Thanks! I might have to do that. :)

  6. Great goals for this week!

    I agree with the above posters that maybe once or twice a week with 3 posts would be great! I would hate for you to go crazy from our nosiness :)

    This Banoffee Pie you speak of sounds divine! I must search Pinterest for the recipe!
