Re: Motivational Monday!

  • I think I'm going to rejoin the Y.  They have Zumba and yoga classes that I want to try.

    I'm getting paid on Thursday so I'm going to wait until then and sign up.

  • I have to find time to clean up my desk since I'm on vacation next week.  When I get back I will be in a new office WITHOUT partitions.  I'm so nervous that it's going to put a damper on my NBC time.

  • I joined the Y yesterday and went swimming early this morning before work!  My goal is to go back at least three more times this week.

    You inspired me to take another look at the Y.

    Yay!  I'm already in love with all the classes and programs they have.  Although I do have to say that after this morning, I think it's going to be worth an extra half hour of sleep to have enough time to shower at home instead of in the locker room.

  • This week I need to clean up my craft room. I need to talk to the state also this week.

    I will just have to take one part at a time until it is done. I will have to start tomorrow though since the internet guy is coming today.

  • This week is all about the packing, exercising and eating better.
    I will pack while Alex naps, make sure we walk everyday and not buy anymore junk food. I have been ravenous lately but that doesn't mean I have to eat junk.
  • I have a big goal this week. According to my running plan, I am supposed to run 2 miles without stopping by Saturday! I am super nervous as it has been over a year since I have run any distance at all.

  • I'm going to go to the gym 4 times this week. I already went today before work, so 3 more to go. I'm also working on my goal of drinking enough water everyday.

    I had this problem when they moved my office.  My monitor went from facing the back wall to facing the door.  Seriously, don't they know NBCing gets us through our work day??

  • I'm going to successfully feed my family from our meal plan as I go back to work this week.

    I made some things ahead of time, so I need to do it a couple more times this week and dinners should be easier with two needy kids.

    I plan also to work out twice this week to get back into it. I'm going to go early to work one day and do something over the weekend too.

  • I plan to go to get through chapter 10 of revisions, go back to the doctor for this sinus infection that will not die, and cook dinner every night.

    To do this I'm going to head to my writers' meeting a few hours early and sit at B&N to do revisions. I seem to get so much more done when I'm not at home. I've already made an appt with the doctor for tomorrow. I've made a meal plan for Tues-Fri night dinners.
    I write sexy books. I read all the books. I love dresses & macarons.

    Good luck as you get back into the groove of working again. Are you feeling ready or dreading it? I'll be thinking happy thoughts for you.  I think I might need to get better at meal planning too. Are you using one of those monthly meal planner websites for suggestions? We always make the same 10 or 15 things.

  • I've already finished one of my weekly goals. I wanted to get Under the Dome finished and I finished it right before dinner! B was content to play by himself in his room while I sat on the floor with him and finished the last 20 pages!

    I have 2 on-going goals... at least 1 new dinner recipe a week and go walking at least 5 times a week.

    My additional goal for this week is to clean the entire upstairs in preparation for DH's birthday dinner in 2 weeks (DH's whole family stays overnight, and my SILs stay at our house for 2 nights). This not only includes cleaning, but also rearranging the guest room to put down the new rug. All with a very active 7 month old who doesn't nap :)

  • I'm going to get a ton of work done for a paper and a project I have due Monday. I plan to do this by starting tomorrow morning and working on it Thursday morning as well.

    I will not wait until the weekend to do it all. I will not procrastinate. I will read this weekend, not do school work. /repeat
