Goals for The Week of October 26th

Happy Monday!

I’m still flying on a renewed-energy high, but didn’t get quite the right amount of sleep last night, so I’m desperately missing my caffeine routine.  I am going to make an extra “cup” of coffee to hopefully trick my brain and body into thinking it’s a true serving.  My second cups of coffee are always about 2/3 decaf and 1/3 regular, but only on days that I need them.  Oh coffee, how I miss thee.

This week is a “short” week at school because Friday are parent/teacher conferences for the first quarter ALREADY!  Time has truly flown by!  In only a few short weeks we will be celebrating Thanksgiving with my family in Michigan.  It’s going to be a great time sharing our pregnancy, in-the-flesh, and the joy of welcoming our little boy sooner than we think.


I want to do a better job of setting and monitoring the progress of my weekly goals.  Right now I just have a list and that helps me to create the goals, but the follow-through isn’t as consistent as I’d like.  Here are a few that I am working on for this week:

1.  70 ounces of water a day.  I know that this sounds like a lot, but when I had my goal of 64 ounces, I still felt like I was thirsty.  I also want to ensure that my liquid intake is mostly water and not juices or coffee.

2.  5 days of exercise per week.  I really felt good after taking a few days off of working out towards the end of last week.  I would like to keep my weekends on the calendar, but two days a week of relaxing before work will help me to feel  better during the day.

3.  Vacuum the house and car.  Both the house and car need a good sweeping, especially after we played at the beach both mornings this past weekend.

4.  More veggies, fewer pretzels.  I’ve been tell you all about my “salty” cravings throughout the entirety of this pregnancy, and I have not done a good enough job of balancing the healthy with the non-healthy options.  I tend to reach for the easier choices, which tend to be pretzel chips, BBQ flavor anything, and frozen vegetables that have been pre-flavored. I stocked up on some delicious and flavorful vegetables this weekend, and went back to an old staple from my high school days: cottage cheese.  I know, it’s an acquired taste.  In fact, I have avoided it for YEARS, hence the “high school days” comment.
