Optimistic Monday

Hi Everyone!

For those of you that are new to my blog, I try to post my goals for the week every Monday.  Then I come back the next week and let you know how I did on each goal.  It just helps me to stay a little bit more accountable to the things that I say I’m going to do.  I’d love to have you add your blog’s link below and grab a button from my sidebar.  Link up your goals or another optimistic post.

My goals for last week:

1.  Finish cleaning out my closet once and for all
I’m getting there!  I think I’ve developed a little bit of ADD over the past few months and seem to have a hard time completing big projects like this one.

2.  Register for the AIM at Melanoma walk that will take place in Dallas on May 4, 2013.
I signed up for the walk.  My sponsor link is coming soon.
3.  Walk 4 times.
I only walked 3 times this week.  The bursitis that I had in my hips a few months ago seems to be be back.  Luckily It’s only affecting just one hip.  I thought that resting it for a few days might help so I haven’t walked since Thursday.  I’m hoping that this won’t end up being a long term problem.
4.  Film 2 YouTube videos this week.
Yes, I was able to No, I didn’t squeeze in a second video on Sunday like I planned to do.  Sorry about that.  I just couldn’t get the entire thing together.

5.  Do some pilates to firm and tone a few areas that need some help since I will have to put my swimsuit on in less than 2 months on spring break.
I’ve been doing several different pilates exercises trying to firm and tone a bit.

My goals for this week:

1. Continue walking (as long as my hip cooperates) and doing pilates.
2.  Work on my blog.
3.  Bake something low in fat and calories.
4.  Lunches with girlfriends.
5.  Finish off the closet.
6.  Maybe list a few items for sale after cleaning out my closet.  I have some nice things that I’m considering selling on ebay or another site.
7.  Film and post 2 YouTube videos.
I have so much to share!

    Good luck on your goals! For some reason, every time I organize my closet, I get it done but after doing another batch of laundry, it will turn into a huge mess again!

      Oh no! You just have to plan to stay organized. It usually takes me a few months to get the mess back again. Have a great week! Thanks for stopping by! Stacie xo
