M is for Memories

The best parts of the weekend

1. Being totally inspired at church – inspired enough to ask myself some tough questions

2. The 2 workouts I did on Sunday:

  • 1 hour of swim class where I finally made it to the deep end, after which I clutched the wall for a good minute while I tried talking myself to swim back.
  • 1 hour of spin class where I spent 5 minutes at almost full resistance that the leader said was to simulate climbing a steep hill. I couldn’t figure out why i would want to climb that steep hill on my bike in the first place when it would be so much easier to get off the bike and push it uphill. Aaah, exercise. Sometimes, it’s hard. But it’s always worth it.

3. Spending some quality time with the kids in my youth group. I haven’t been giving them my all lately and I just need to get that back on track and keep up the commitment I made to them 2 1/2 years ago.

4. Staying up almost all Saturday night to finish Jane Green’s Saving Grace. There’s something about being lost in a novel in the wee hours of the morning that’s totally calming.

5. Finding out I have an overnight camping trip in 2 weeks that I’m super-psyched about!

6. Expecting a package from my parents that is supposed to arrive tomorrow. Just knowing my goodies are almost here and I can barely sit still!

7. Chatting with a cousin on Friday evening, a cousin that I haven’t spoken to on the phone ever, and haven’t seen in over 20 years yet it was like talking to a long-lost sister. Family!


And the not-so-awesome parts of the weekend:

1. The hour or so I spent looking for clothes for church because it feels like nothing fit the way it’s supposed to. #SummerBodiesAreMadeInTheWinter and don’t you forget it!

2. That I didn’t write anything all weekend and couldn’t think of anything that i wanted to write either.

3. Missing a funeral that I had really planned to attend but couldn’t.

Goals for the week ahead

  1. Plan details for the upcoming camping trip
  2. Write everyday
  3. Finish 2 books to get back on track for Reading Challenge
  4. Work project that I need to finish ASAP
  5. Reach out to my youth group kids during the week to encourage them.
  6. Exercise everyday – my workout buddy comes back tomorrow and she’s good at pushing me!
  7. Take more pictures.

  1. I love the reading goals! I’ve started a bunch of books in the last few months, but haven’t committed to finishing them. I need to knock them out – one at a time. 🙂

      Thanks for commenting! Are you doing a reading challenge? Do you have timelines to finish each book? Maybe the reason you’re not finishing is that the books are not gripping enough. When I can’t finish, sometimes, I skim just to get it over with. Thankfully, I don’t have to do that often.
      But don’t worry – warmer weather is coming and with it, the chance to lie in the park with a blanket, a drink and an awesome read. You’ll get those books done in no time.


  2. Stopping by from the link up. Super excited for your camping trip. Camping is seriously one of the best things ever.

    Thanks Krista. I’ll have to visit you also. I have a camping trip in April and one in May. Color me excited!


  4. Camping!! I love camping. My family is always planning trips and because of my husband’s job, we’ve been missing them. I’m totally jealous of you. I so want to just pack up a tent, skip work for a few days, and take the kayaks down to the springs. That’s just be awesome.

    You’ll have to keep us updated on your trip and take lots of pictures while you’re out.

    Good luck accomplishing your goals this week!

      I promise. Lots of pictures when I go. Both of these camp sites will be new to me and I look forward to sharing all I see and do.
      I hope you get out there soon also.
      Thanks so much for reading. I’ll visit your blog also.


  5. Hope you crushed those goals this week!!! 🙂

    I really need to head back to church. It used to be one of my favourite places – and I need to ask myself some tough questions right about now!
