Celebrations and Struggles

Best parts of the weekend – Celebrations:

1. All the hats  

   2. All the clothes  

 

3. Ladies Day celebration at church, with all the food.  

 

4. All the friends  

 Toughest parts of the weekend – Struggles:

  • Not being with my mom for Mother’s Day. I appreciate you, Mom! I wish I was there to show you how much. Please be patient with me.
  • Swim class was tough today. It felt like the water was assaulting me!

Goals last week:

  1. Workout every day – check – ran 3 days, floor workout 3 days
  2. Write every day – check. 
  3. Plan my days in advance and be more intentional with how I use my time and talent – I scheduled my days but didn’t always follow the plan
  4. Be more attentive to portion control with my meals – Working on that.
  5. Read 2 books – Check. Finished The Husband’s Secret and Landline 

I have similar goals this week:

  1. Write every day
  2. Plan ahead and be more intentional with how I use my time
  3. Continue focus on portion control
  4. Read 2 books – Lean In by Sheryl Sandberg and Wild by Cheryl Strayed
  5. Follow my exercise plan:
  • Sun: 1 hour swim
  • Mon: 3 mile run
  • Tue: 1 hr cardio, strength training at gym
  • Wed: 4 mile run
  • Thu: 1 hr cardio, strength training at gym
  • Fri: 5 mile run
  • Sat: Rest

That’s the plan!

    Good job on the goals. I loved My Husband’s Secret. Did you read What Alice forgot? Wild is a good too. better than the movie. Best part of my weekend was my birthday dinner out.

  4. I listened to Lean In awhile back and thought it was interesting at times; nonetheless I still feel so bad for Sheryl Sandberg and her family. And your other book is by a Cheryl! Coincidence?

      I noticed the coincidence too 😀 and I got another one for you. I have Arianna Huffington’s Thrive on my shelf because I have to write a review and on the front cover, the first review is by Sheryl Sandberg. Everyone’s connected!
