Beat the week (wk 5)

What have you done this week to work towards your goals?

Nothing…sorry…nothing. I haven’t been using my calendars…haven’t read my organization skills book…filled out the form to register for the Moo cow half marathon but didn’t write the check or mail the form. I did manage to lose 1.4 lbs bringing me closer to losing 20lbs (now I’m at needing 17.8 to lose-I’ll be happy with 10! How many more weeks we got??)…and next week doesn’t really look promising as I have a new pup to help potty train (and learn to not be so anxious about—by the way my older pup and him seem to be doing fine-a lil bit of a daddy baby relationship but still becoming buds), a spare guest room to finish painting, and family coming into town.
2. What have you done to make yourself feel fabulous?
Nothing..nada….zilch….but I don’t really feel bad either! Well, I am a lil tired because we got a new puppy on Friday.
3. How are you finding your goals this challenge? Do you still think you can achieve them?
Non confrontational; easily obtainable with more effort but still rewarding for the effort I am putting in. I’m trying to be a less stressful type a person…a person who doesn’t HAVE to do everything on their list RIGHT THIS MINUTE just because it’s on my list. Know what I mean jellybean!?
4. Freebie! If you want to change one goal change it. Explain your decision even if you don’t change any.
I don’t have the mental focus/energy to change a goal right now. Even if I did I probably wouldn’t. I choose goals that will help lead me to the overall goal and that is to be the best, most well balanced person I can be (quirks and all).
5. Fun Question: If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be? Your funds are unlimited!
Ireland. Some of my roots are there and I hear the crime rate is relatively low. J It’s also very beautiful (if the pics are not deceiving) with history that is amazing (not that the US history isn’t amazing but …).

picture of the week is of the peace and quiet I got, for the first time in four nights (yes-that IS a long time) last night....

and yes..those are doggie stairs...FB ain't gettin any younger!!


  1. love the pic and you're right stressin does you no good. a loss is a loss........but walk that check to the mailbox sweetie. you really want to do it and you KNOW you can!

  2. Changes in life can so bump you off of your plan. For me, I'm learning to allow life to happen without losing my focus. It's hard at first, but gets easier! Maybe you can take just one of your goals and make it happen this week! Then add another one the week after. Before you know it, you are back on track!

    The picture is so cute!

    Keep focused!
