10 Goals For The Rest Of The Week

I am goal oriented person. I do better when I have something I am working towards. It keeps me focused, and I just function better. Here are 10 goals for the rest of the week. 

1.      Exercise every day. I’m really good about exercising, and I usually do something active every day. Reminding myself how important physical activity is to my health keeps me going.

2.      Stay away from the candy bowl. As good as I am about exercising, I’m not so good about staying away from sweets. I’m borderline addicted. I have a pretty awesome job and work with amazing people. The one pitfall is the candy bowl. I can see it from my office, and it calls to me. We’re not talking mints and hard candies; we’re talking Reese’s, Snickers, Hershey’s Kisses, and my new fave, Starburst Jelly Beans. I CANNOT STAY AWAY. Sometimes, I don’t eat real food just so I can eat more candy. It is pathetic. My goal is to stay away from the candy bowl for the rest of the week.

3.      Clean my house. For the past month, I’ve been obsessing over packing up our house, and I have neglected to clean it. I figured that if I packed a few boxes a week our house would get packed without it ever feeling like a huge task. The thing I forgot was that I also needed to keep cleaning it or that would become a massive task. Now, cleaning has turned into a big job. So much for Sunday Funday.

4.      Organize my wedding gifts. We’ve been married for 7 months and have not taken our wedding gifts out of the boxes/bags in which we received them. We knew we’d be moving soon after we were married and never saw the point. Now, it’s time to organize and consolidate to make moving them easier.

5.      Get some sleep. I’ve been depriving myself of precious shut eye a lot lately. I need to rejuvenate myself. Since Kris says I’m too young for Botox (I disagree and see it as a preventative measure, but whatever), I guess I need to get some serious beauty rest if I’m ever going to get these bags to go away.

6.      Get a haircut. OK, so don’t judge me, but I haven’t had a haircut since early February. That was like 16 weeks ago. I usually get a trim every 9-10 weeks. I’m sorry Holly; I’m coming on Saturday.

7.      Convince my husband to pack up his computer room. Although my “boo for life” is a country club manager by day, he is a computer nerd at heart. There are motherboards (at least that's what I think they are) and various computer parts everywhere. Apparently, they need to be packed in anti-static bags, whatever that means. I’m hoping I can convince him to pack it all up this weekend.

8.      Have a conversation with my husband without either of us checking our email, looking at Facebook, or watching TV. I can’t remember the last time we were at home together without the TV blaring or iPhones attached to our hands. I just know that cannot be good for our marriage. We need to seriously unplug.
9.      Enjoy a glass of wine. It is unusual that Kris and I get to share a meal together. I work 8am to 6pm (sometimes later, but not too often), and he works 11am to whenever (usually 9pm, but sometimes as late as 12 or 1am). When we do get to sit down together we have wine, as he is somewhat of a connoisseur. However, I am always thinking of something that needs to be done or how tired I am, etc. I never actually enjoy the flavors and aromas of the wine. I’d like to drink a glass of wine and really enjoy it.

10.  Get a pedicure. I heart getting pedicures. They make me happy; I find the whole experience so relaxing. Sandal season is upon us, and I feel I owe it to myself (and the rest of the people who will be seeing my feet) to put my best foot forward.Pun intended.
