Internal List Update

So back in November I wrote a post about all the things on my internal to do list.  Well the only way anything is ever going to get checked off is if I keep on it.  So here is an update.

  1. Writing - I feel like recently I totally have stepped it up with my blog.  I just love the updated format.  I love my new quotes and I love love LOVE the link within feature.  Taller has had this on her blog for awhile however I never bothered putting it on mine because my posts don't always contain pictures so I didn't think it would work. But it does!!!  I love it!  Often I look at it and I am like wow that was a cool post.  So I hope it helps you enjoy my blog even more.  As for writing, my biggest dream is to be a freelance writer.  I've been doing some research on how to get published and I am going to start testing the waters.  I have a great topic in mind and I am going to start doing my research and write a kick ass article and try to get it published in a local newspaper.
  2. Exercise more - I have been working like a mad woman on getting ready for my upcoming 5k.  
  3. Work less - I have totally been cutting back the amount of time that I spend at the office.  I have totally been using my gotomypc account so at least if I have stuff I have to do I can do it at home and not be at the office until 7 or 8 pm.
  4. Weekend woes - I feel like when I have something to's all good but when I have nothing to's all tv.  Work still needs to be done.....
  5. Get a hobby - Hello have you seen my cards!  I love them.  They are totally my new hobby!
  6. Save more money - I'm so tight with money as it is so any MORE savings is really just tweating little things.
  7. Count calories - okay this has been totally ignored.  However, I did buy a new food journal the other day and when I actually start eating again (sick right now) I will start using it!!
  8. Cut coupons - totally ignored - I just feel like it's more work than necessary and Paul and I don't buy the items that they make coupons
  9. Drink more water - I have totally been drinking more water lately...YAY!!
  10. Stop going to Starbucks - brace yourselves people....I destroyed my starbucks card and I haven't been to starbucks in AWHILE....YAY!!  So...saving money!!!  YAY!
  11. Eat breakfast - I'd say I eat breakfast at least 3 out of the 5 days.  Especially when running I always make sure I have eaten that morning.  
  12. Hair - okay so of course my hair is a bit longer I actually looked at it in the mirror today and thought....almost there =)
So as you can see I've been working on my list.  What's on your internal list?

12 Things You Need for Successful Weight Loss

1) Get your head in the game! Weight loss doesn't happen without dedication.  You have to have the mindset to get it done.  I've said in the past that motivation for me is like a light switch ... when it's on it is ON.  Even though motivation is one of the key things you need ~ you also need patience, understanding, time, and willpower.  You have to make a commitment to yourself and stick with it. 2) Track your progress! Tracking keeps you honest to yourself.  Without tracking you can sabotage yourself into overeating.  For example, tell me EVERYTHING you ate on Friday off the top of your head, not so easy right?  Also, there are tons of apps out there that you can quickly track or you can do it the old fashion way of writing it down.  Find what works for you and do it daily.  Also, as a rule I normally track my whole day in the morning.  Breakfast, Lunch, Snack & Dinner.  This also keeps me in track.  I can budget out my day and make changes if things arise or when y…

It's Okay Thursday/Hello Monday #5

... to be so productive that you "forget" to blog!

... to have tire issues on April Fool's Day and have to preface every text with ... this is NOT an April Fool's joke.

... to buy 11 items from the dollar days area at Target in an effort to get organized.  {hmmmm ... maybe a good idea for a blog post.}

... to forget to finish this post!

Hello Monday#5 It is truly amazing how much better my makeup and hair look on the weekend. So if you have never tried Starbucks Via Iced Coffee - I highly recommend. So I just watched Into the Woods over the weekend.  Why did the music sound EXACTLY like Sweeney Todd? Seriously I even googled that sh!t and came up with nothing. Why is it on weekends I am all about managing my down time  like it was my last meal or something.  Um no, I cannot do XYZ,  that is a total lack of consideration to my weekend of staying at  home and doing nothing for 48 hours straight.  
How are you doing today?
