This weekend, Shred week 3, and SMART Goals

Friday, June 07, 2013

I have decided to restart week 3 next Wednesday. This has been to hectic and with the festival this weekend I didn't want to set myself up for failure. I plan to not eat like a pig though! And I will get plenty of walking in over the weekend! I ate pizza yesterday which was the first time in over a month that we have had fast food. Made my stomach hurt. So I know I have to make sure to get the healthiest options I can find down at the festival since I am unable to bring food items.

I will do my best to post over the weekend for the challenges in BLC and Spring 5%. I should be able to do a quick post tomorrow morning but I doubt I will be able to on Sunday. I am not sure what time on Monday we will be home so I will do what I can then too.

J (Real information about me): I am a wife and sahm mom. My hubby was my fourth grade crush and we have been married for almost 9 years. My daughter Evie is 8 and my son Jay will be 5 on the 5th of July. I am a student and I am constantly on the go. I stopped working in 2009 to focus on my children and school. I didn't want them to go to the district we live in so I drive them about 20 min away everyday. I love to read mysteries, romance, erotica, and non fiction. I love watching movies. Some of my favorite actors are Bradley Cooper, Sandra Bullock, Jen Anniston, Josh Duhmel, Channing Tatum, Nick Cage, Robert Downey Jr...just to name a few. I love action, romantic comedies, horror, just about anything really. We have a collection of Disney, DreamWorks and so on DVD's of over 300. I love Amazon lol. I am a perfectionist so I get down on myself a lot. I am trying to fix that! We love to go on trips, family outings, fishing, bowling, and swimming. Which I still need to get our pool up. I have a strong interest in Bulldogs since we got Bella. They are the best breed! And that's about it!

    SMART goals!
Like Evie says walking will take care of any munchies munched at the festival but if you think before you buy you'll do yourself a great favour..Have fun

  Great goals. Good luck at the festival. Don't think of it as a way to postpone but just another bump in the road. The walking will help so you may just surprise yourself.
