Summer 2015 Wish List

Saturday, August 29, 2015

I know I'm way behind on this one! Somehow the havoc of caring for my mom this summer has gotten me off rhythm. Even though I'm just now writing the blog, I have had these goals in mind and have been working towards them all summer!

emoticon Nutrition: The goal is 1450 calories or less daily, hopefully with 75% accuracy. Also I have bloodwork coming up, so I must be more careful with my food choices too.

emoticon Exercise: I have been doing cardio consistently only rarely missing a day. My goal is to do 3 1-hour strength training "Ballet Beautiful" DVDs each week.

emoticon Finances: This year I have been very controlled in this area! I have been living within my means, and I am actually better off than I was this time last year! I will continue to severely limit spending money and put the majority to bills and savings.

emoticon Organization: I have already achieved an organized bathroom and bedroom closet. (Not to say they're perfect, but they're much improved). My goal this summer and fall is to have an organized bedroom. I would post before/after pictures, but the before pictures were too embarrassing to take. Trust me when I say I have come a long way. (For those of you who think "an organized bedroom" is vague, I'm almost there . . . and I'll know it when I get there!)

emoticon Weight: I am around 158 pounds now. My goal is to reach 155 and lose 3 pounds before fall. For some added motivation, my brother's tentative wedding date is in December!

Summer, you've been great. Can't you please stay?

    You crack me up! I have a feeling that your "Organized" would make me feel like a total slacker if I compared myself to you... You're doing a great job girlie, keep up the good work, blessings are on the way... BTW how's the mom doing?

    Way to go on setting a financial goal and WORKING toward it - now you're seeing results! The same is true of your organization. I know what you mean by "I'll know when I get there". Hard to describe but our internal pictures know what it will look like!
