A New Week

It’s Monday, folks. I’m starting the week off with 3 mini goals to keep me semi-accountable.

  1. I’m going to go to bed before 2am all week. Goodbye 4am bedtime.
  2. I’m going to finally hang this huge giraffe print that we just got in the mail.
  3. I’m going to send five letters to various loved ones.

Comment below and commit to 3 mini goals this week! We can do it!

PS- Thinking of our veterans today (past and current) and those affected by the typhoon in the Philippines. A distant family member is raising support through Red Cross. Donate here.

      I have so much fun stationery and it’s a shame if I don’t use it. I need to figure out my Christmas list for the women in our lives! I got the men’s gifts already.

      PS: that pumpkin glaze donut was AMAZING

    Love this …

    1. Minimum 8 hours of sleep each night. No excuses.
    2. Walk/run everyday.
    3. Wear something I haven’t worn in two weeks. I’m in a clothes rut even when my closet isn’t.

    I love your mini goals! I don’t know how you stay up until 4am! 2am is even waaaay past my bedtime, hence:

    1. Go to bed before 11pm, so I can…
    2. Get up at least 4/5 mornings this week to work out.
    3. Send a birthday package to my mom BEFORE her actually birthday for once.

    Good luck meeting your goals!
