Plan for the week and the tax refund

Sunday, March 10, 2013

This week's plan is to track my three fast break goals, which are

1- Drink 8 cups of water each day.
2- Exercise for 10 minutes each day (already did 51)
3- Read from a motivating story or book each day.

2 out of 3 so far, still working on #1.

Did my taxes yesterday and am looking forward to a $750 refund. My first thought was "Mama needs new clothes!"

Then I realized if I put money towards working out, yoga classes, maybe some gym sessions, then I could buy SMALLER clothes. So my goal for the refund is a bit of both: new clothes and wellness funds. I've never been a gym kinda gal, and with my track record of inconsistency I hesitate to put a large amount on a gym pass yet. I plan to get some day passes and check out some of the gyms in town and see if there are any I would stick to. Nothing changes if nothing changes, and I really could use some umph. There is the hot springs pool nearby that I could definitely partake in some swimming sessions.

Today I found a pair of Keen snow boots on sale. I wasn't planning on buying anything today, but the coffee shop I met my friend at this morning is next to a clothing store, which happened to have a sale. They are purple! Really cute. I don't know how many more snow days there will be to enjoy them this season, but it will be nice to wear them to work instead of my romp-around-the-horse-pasture boots, and they will last me for years.

Its so beautiful outside! All the snow from yesterday is melting, its in the 50's, and spring is in the air, at least the hope of it is.

    Good for you setting the fast break goals and 2/3 is not bad!!!!! You remind me I need to do my taxes! emoticon

    I love the idea of purple snow boots!!! And like your location our snow is fast disappearing. I contemplated buying new boots but decided I would tough it out without. Been wearing my windriver hiking boots and they have been just fine for walking.

    I also think it's a good idea just to get the day passes for the gym and find out if your really enjoy it. I wasted a pass one year when I hardly made it there. I just do not care for sharing my space with a bunch of jocks.

    Great blog! Good work!!! emoticon Here's to a lovely and successful spring season for all of us!!
