Challenge of Harry Potter - Winter Term Week #5

Monday, January 31, 2011

We had to pick 3 SMART goals to work on this term. My pick was:
1) Work on spare bedroom
2) Catch up on my reading
3) Exercise at least 20-minutes a day

This challenge we must write a blog listing our goals and what obstacles keep us from our goals and how we plan to overcome these obstacles.

I met the first goal. The bedroom looks like a bedroom now. When we went away on vacation, my dh’s sister and her son stayed here. He slept in the spare bedroom. Needless to say, the bedroom is back in shape, although, I do have to wash and make the bed.

The second one to read my books is pretty well caught up. I had this goal from last term and I had read a couple books by the end of the term. I did start the next book in the series so that is my goal, to read the series. I only have one more book in the series; I’ll have to find the next two books.

The last goal is to exercise 20-min a day. I do at least 30 minutes. My normal routine is to do a 5 minute warm up then 30-minutes on the treadmill.

I find that I tend to play more on Facebook farming, etc. I will cut back on my games and do more reading before getting on FB.

If there is something that comes up that I have to do in the mornings, I try to get up earlier to get my exercises in.

Hakuna matata...it means no worries

The past can hurt. But the way I see it, you can either run from it, or learn from it.

The only exercise some people get is jumping to conclusions, running down their friends, side-stepping responsibility, and pushing their luck! ~Author Unknown

“The best inspiration is not to outdo others, but to outdo ourselves.”

I believe I got this from a SP page. This is one of my favorites. Used to have it in my signature block.

Just one more quote:
“Even if you are on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.”
