Hi Bees! Happy Monday!
I thought it might be fun to do some weekly goals…get a list of things we want to accomplish this week and maybe touch base on it at the end of the week to see what we got done! Hopefully people want to play!
This week I would like to make it to the gym four times for an hour each, eat a healthy dinner at home five nights of the week and pack lunch for DH and I for work four days.

Accountability is always a good thing!
Wedding related: -Get marriage license!!!
-Mail/hand deliver those last few invites that are hanging on
-Have FI call caterer/FI to give groomsmen tux details so that they can order
-Try recipe for favors
Personal: -Run 4 days, 2 outside runs
-Finish organizing guest room (that has been overtaken by wedding stuff)
-Take walks with FI after dinner twice
That’s all that I can think of right now but I may add more!

Goals for this work week – workout at least 3 times, figure out exactly what I’m doing table numbers, pull all my pictures off my old cell phone so I can send it to my best friend from home (lol – poor girl has been waiting for it for 2 weeks). Oh, and do at least 2 loads of laundry and fold/put them away as soon as they’re done…not wait a day, fluff the drier, and then do it.
Goals for the weekend – set up our registry at Ikea and do our registry for Pottery Barn online, finish up/get ready to mail an Etsy order for save the date magnets and custom envelopes, workout both days.
The odds of all of that happening are pretty slim…but I can dream!

Oh OK OK!
Honestly, I didn’t want to say anything to anyone because I always seem to fail on trying to be healthy, but last week I read about Myfitnesspal right here on the bee… so I have been doing it for 4 days. And I started working out 1 week before that.
SoOoOOo, my goal this week is to keep eating under 1600 calories (which it recomended) and keep up with my zumba and g ball workout every night.
Wish me luck

Here are my goals for the week:
1) Start a weight loss plan and begin running/jogging.
2) Try to get ahead of myself in homework.
3) Enjoy the nice weather! I haven’t been outside very much so now that it’s warm enough I’ll be trying to get outside more.

This is great!
Work Goal: Draft a chapter of my dissertation
Fitness: Run or bike four times
one yoga class
Wedding: book rehearsal dinner place (this is becoming more of a pain as we have been rejected by multiple restaurants)
Personal: Don’t spend so much time with a particular friend who is overly critical, gossipy, and, at times, just plain mean.
oh yeah, and do my taxes.

My goal for this week is to finish my book! Water for Elephants 🙂 Love it! And if at all possible, I need to finish it while sitting outside in the sun, love!

Yay! So excited that so many of you are playing! How about we touch base on Sunday to see how the goals went?
@running-elley Hope your favors turn out awesome! I like the idea of walks with your FI after dinner – I may have to steal that idea and get DH to start taking walks with me!
@mandamack Your goals are ambitious! I am sure you can get it all done! I struggle with putting the laundry away after its done too and not letting it sit in the basket.
@tranquility Sounds like you’re off to a great start on your fitness goals! What’s a g ball? And good luck!
@kayely88 Are you going to do C25K?
@bookstorewedding Good plan on cutting down time with the mean friend! Hope you find an RH venue!
@kperry3 Books are always better when you read them outside in the sunshine!

@kperry3:I LOVE that book, can’t wait for the movie!!
@sparkle:Steal away!!! We don’t get to do it as often as I like but now that it stays light longer I’m trying really hard to incorporate them into our evenings. It’s a great way to relax and unwind together without being zombies in front of the TV lol!
