Goals for the Week.


In an effort to make myself be productive this week, I've decided to publish my goals.  I need the accountability.  If I just say in my head what I want to do, it's far to easy to let them slide.  My plan for this week:

1.  10 miles (cumulative) on the treadmill.  I wish it could be outside, but alas... Mother Nature isn't cooperating.  And I need to get my running legs back.

2.  Up at 5:30 three times this week.  Donny gets up that early to go to work, and I should get up at the same time to hit the gym.  It's the perfect time to do it.  But my sleep-loving self usually just dives back under the covers for a few hours.

3.  Make dinner at home twice instead of eating out.  Two dinners this week should cover us for a while with leftovers since we don't have a whole family eating them.  Good for the budget!

4.  Have a no-sugar day.  Adrian's post really got me to thinking about the sugar I take in.  I didn't think I really ingested THAT much sugar.  But a big cup of sweet tea here, a cookie there, and it all starts to add up.  Plus, I know that it's addictive.  So, not giving in to my sugar cravings for a whole day will be a big step in the right direction for me.

5.  Spend some time with my parents.  Since getting married, I don't spend as much time with them as I used to.  So, this week, I want to try to hang out with them.

What are your goals for the week?


  1. I got up at 5 this morning with my sister, I didn't have to be up til 5:45, but just that extra goofing off with her this morning made my day better! Good luck with your goals!

  2. Those seem like some easy, maintainable goals for the week! I really should have a no-sugar day, too.

  3. I would LOVE to do a no-sugar day. That would be so hard though. Maybe a 5 for Five goal for the future...

  4. eating dinner at home saves so much $!!!

  5. Good goals! I'm in week 4 of my less sugar diet. I've been really good (except while I was in TX). I've only drank water, cut WAY back on sweets and candy and I'm eating healthy snacks. I still want candy all the time but I resist it (and eat a few jelly beans every now and then). Good luck w/ it!

  6. Wonderful goals!! You can totally get those done :) Making dinner at home saves tons of money!
