5 for Five


Well, there were a few surprises for me last week.  Not the good kind either.
I tried not to let them disrupt my life too much, but sometimes that's easier said than done.  

Check out how I fared with last week's goals -- green means I succeeded, and red means I failed.

1.  Be in bed by 10 p.m. every night (except Friday). 
I fell a bit short on Thursday.

2.  Spend at least one hour each night reading. 
I definitely did this.  Finished one book and started a new one.

3.  Remember to take my multivitamin every day. 

4.  Get four workouts in. 
I went for a run on Monday and did yoga on Tuesday.  After that ... nothing.

5.  Start brainstorming for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month).
I know what story I'll be working on.  I still have more to sketch out before Nov. 1 though.

Three out of five ... not bad.


Here are my new goals for the week ahead ...

1.  Get four workouts in.
We'll add this one in since I failed last week.

2. Be in bed by eleven each night.
I couldn't make ten last week, so we'll do eleven this week and ease into earlier bedtime.

3.  Cook dinner at home every night.
It's cheaper and healthier.

4.  Shred junk mail/old bills.
The stack in my closet has been staring at me for months. Time for a shredding party.

5.  Finish watching "Drop Dead Diva" DVDs.
A friend loaned me Seasons 1 and 2, and I breezed through the first season.  
Baseball kept me from jumping into season 2.  It's time to get back to it. 


I'm hoping these are all green next week.


  1. I think your #3 sounds perfect. I need to do that, too. Stop spending unnecessary money when I have tons of food I can cook here at home! Good luck this week.

  2. You just reminded me that I NEED to get a shredder! And I like the idea of easing into earlier bedtime, I've been trying to do that, too. Thanks for linking up!!

  3. I think you did great last week! Getting to bed early 3 out of 4 nights is impressive! I need to get there! Good luck on your goals this week! You can do it!!
