Goals and other things

Today I'm taking the easy way out and writing lists. I love lists because you can talk about so many different things but it doesn't get too wordy or scatterbrained. Especially when the lists are categorized. Enjoy!

Five goals I have for the month: 
1. Come up with an eating plan and stick to it. 

2. Pack up our apartment and MOVE INTO OUR HOUSE (read more about it here

3. Start on our wedding photo book. I got a great Groupon for a hardcover photo book and I can't wait to put all of our wedding photos in it. 

4. Drink two liters of water a day. I know this isn't really a "monthly" so much as a "daily" goal, but it's still a goal. 

5. Read two books. I've downloaded Me Before You by Jojo Moyes (at the recommendation of Amber) but I haven't gotten the chance to start it yet. I'm looking forward to it, because I've heard great things. Any thoughts on what my second book for the month should be? 

 Four of my favorite movies of all time: 


Any HP movie - any LOTR movie - The Little Mermaid - Fried Green Tomatoes



Three new things I tried last month
1. I started getting Skimm'd. If you don't know what I'm talking about then you should try it here. Basically its a short and sweet version of the news that's sent to your email every morning. If you're like me, and don't have time to read/watch the news in the morning but still want to be up to date on all the big happenings - The Skimm is what you need. 

2. Sumo squats at the gym. All I'm going to say about that is: ouch. 

3. Getting up earlier. Derek has to be at work an hour before I do, so naturally he wakes up earlier than me to go to the gym. I started getting up and going at the same time as him because (1) we can carpool and (2) it's going to wake me up when he gets up anyway, so why not? It gives me a little more time to get things accomplished - like washing dishes or folding a load of laundry. I know it sounds crazy but I am much more productive in the mornings! When I come home from work all I want to do is put on my comfy clothes and lay around. 

Two things that really aggravate me:
1. When people don't pay attention to me when I'm talking 
2. Slow internet 

One picture taken this week:

I have no idea what is going on but this makes me laugh probably more than I should.

Love Skimm'd! I started reading it about a month ago, and I feel so much more informed.

I will definitely have to try skimm'd. If you are trying to start a good diet you should read the book "Eat Pretty" It has helped me so much! It is worth giving it a try!

The Skimm'd is fabulous a co-worker told me about it about a month ago and now it's one of the first things I read when I get to the office.

YES TO THOSE MOVIES except I've never seen Fried Green Tomatoes.

Fairy Princess Jord said...

I am way way way more productive in the morning so I totally understand your new routine. I also love the Skimm, it's a life changer!

THE LITTLE MERMAID! So sad for you guys about the house, but at least you have another option for now! I would love to see your workout routine :)

I once got up to drinking a gallon of water a day, and it was awesome. I don't think my skin has ever looked that good since birth.

I have skimm too! I also have gotten into the habit of waking up at the same time as my boyfriend when he goes to work out even though I don't have to be up until 7 (to be at internship at 730 ha!) but wake up at 545 and do a workout video at 6 then shower.

Whitney @ Southern Hope said...

Read The Rosie Project next, I LOVE that book, so cute especially if you like The Big Bang Theory! I signed up for Skimm a couple days ago and love it!

good luck! i like how you are setting monthly goals instead of rushing it january and giving up in march - i should give it a try too.

Lora Ashley said...
