2018: Week 2 of 52

Health

Go to the gym 52 times (2/52)

I was sick all day yesterday, I slept an extra 3 hours and today I went to the gym. Where’s my medal?

Do a home work out 30 times

Nothing this week.

Drink 8 glasses of water every day

This goal is so funny, I think I drank about 8 glasses TOTAL all week.

Eat vegetables twice a week 

YUP. Salads and smoothies.

Get my steps per day average up to 10,000 by the end of the year

10,926 was my average this week.  A co-worker had one of those fitbit work week challenges and I came in second, I was 13,000 steps behind the leader.  THIRTEEN THOUSAND. So that brings my two week average up to 9,174.  Pretty damn good!

Lose 30 pounds

This goal is about to depress me so I might lose it.

Get my teeth cleaned

Nothing here.

Floss every day

I don’t remember, so I’m guessing once?

Family

Go on 10 hikes with the boys

Nothing.

Read to the boys every day

We brought home the Captain Underpants books from my sister’s and the boys devoured the first three. I didn’t get to read to them every night because of work stuff.

Go camping with the boys

I made reservations for a campsite near the beach for the summer! I hope we can make it actually happen.

Go to the family reunion in Colorado Springs

Nothing to report here.

Friends

Host 5 dinner parties

Nothing to report here.

Relationship

Go on 10 dates with S

Nothing this week.

Go away for the weekend with just S

Nothing.

Self

Read 45 books (1/45)

I’m still reading A Wrinkle in Time and am LOVING it. I didn’t have a lot of reading time this week because of the aforementioned work stuff, but I’ll probably finish it early this week.

Get acupuncture 5 times

Nothing

Get a face care routine down

Nada.

Go on a ladies’ weekend with my sister and Cassie

We have dates! And a location!

Do a modern cross stitch project

Nothing here.

Take an art class – maybe hand lettering or pottery, OR BOTH

Nothing here

Start and finish 2017 photo yearbook

Nothing here

Do an “old electronics” purge

I need to find a place to take them. Ugh.

Finish the afghan that’s been stuffed in my closet for about 10 years
Untitled
I made some progress on this! I’m annoyed that the ends are wider/looser than the middle, but for a first effort it’s really pretty and I think I have just the person to give it to.

COMPLETED

Get my ears pierced (Completed – 1/2/18)

Finish 2015 photo yearbook (Completed – 1/5/18)

Goals for 2018

I have 33 things on my list this year. That… seems ambitious. This year I had 15 goals and I got a few of them accomplished, like getting a mammogram, getting my teeth cleaned, reading 30 books, going on 10 dates with my husband, going to the gym 30 times. Some of them were impossible, like read to the boys every day, floss every day, etc. but I have to say, I did way more than I would have if I hadn’t checked in every week. I’m going to do the weekly check in as well. So often I find that at the end of the year, I look back at my goals and am like, “Oh, whoops, forgot I put that on my list, too late now, tra la la.”

Am I a little embarrassed at what this blog has become? Dude, yes. But also, I plan on being an old lady who wears weird shit and tells young people to lighten the fuck up.

Health 

Go to the gym 52 times (I have a lot of weight to lose so that I feel more comfortable in my skin, yes, it’s vain)

Do a home work out 30 times (I have so many DVDs and Netflix, etc. This shouldn’t be hard, but will probably be the hardest one)

Drink 8 glasses of water every day (I hate water, I am chronically dehydrated)

Eat vegetables twice a week (oh, look at me, trying to double my vegetable intake. lol)

Get my steps per day average up to 10,000 by the end of the year (I got a new FitBit and it’s been pretty motivating)

Lose 30 pounds (This is mostly for vanity’s sake, but also, my general health would improve if I lost this weight, I think. I’m hoping to get my blood pressure back to my lower weight levels, and get my back in order)

Get my teeth cleaned (ugh, I know, you’re supposed to do this twice a year, but man, with the kid’s doctors appointments, work and life, HOW. HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE)

Floss every day (Ha, we’ll see.)

Family

Go on 10 hikes with the boys (The boys love going hiking, I hope we can find some fun new spots)

Read to the boys every day (I love reading chapter books with them, but Manny still needs children’s books, so it’s been a nice mix the last couple of months, and I enjoy it.)

Go camping with the boys (I’ve never been camping. IN MY WHOLE LIFE.)

Go to the family reunion in Colorado Springs (This seems like it might be financially difficult.)

Friends

Host 5 dinner parties (This is going to be insanely hard, but as I was planning Thanksgiving and getting my dishes out, I was like, I love my friends and I want to do this)

Relationship

Go on 10 dates with S (Getting out with just my husband is so important for our relationship, but sometimes seems so hard with little kids I hardly get to see, but it really makes us feel better about each other)

Go away for the weekend with just S (Hopefully we can cross this off before there’s a new baby in the fam.)

Self

Read 45 books (I read 37 books in 2017 and I feel like this is a good stretch goal)

Get acupuncture 5 times

Get a face care routine down (I never wash my face at night, and last year I did it 30 days in a row in January and then like two more times. The whole year.)

Go on a ladies’ weekend with my sister and Cassie (look, I’m not above putting something on my list that I know I’ll check off)

Do a modern cross stitch project

Take an art class – maybe hand lettering or pottery, OR BOTH (this one is super random, but I have this feeling I’ll really like it)

Get my ears pierced

Find a pattern for a Halloween costume for myself and sew it (I really want to be a Handmaid this year, but Moses and Manny want me to be a vampire…)

Writing

Finish my pilot script (It’s a really fun idea and I think the current television landscape is hungry for shows like it)

Finish my adaptation script (This is a fun one too, and I think I have it cracked, just have to crack the whip on myself to get it done)

Submit pilot to Austin Film Festival

Submit pilot to one other tbd screenwriting competition

House/Organization/Other

Do a huge closet purge (My closest is terrible, I don’t remember what is in there and I can never figure out what to wear)

Finish 2015 photo yearbook (I was doing one per year until I stopped, and I really like having them since no one does photo albums anymore, it seems)

Start and finish 2016 photo yearbook

Start and finish 2017 photo yearbook

Do an “old electronics” purge

Finish the afghan that’s been stuffed in my closet for about 10 years
