Hello Monday!

I hope everyone had a great weekend.  As for being productive, I think I was about 80% solid, which isn't too bad for my first week of trying to manage my time better.  

Also, I almost broke down and bought a planner ... I even looked at several online.  Then I thought about it.  My online version is working well, I can log into it anywhere without having to lug it around or fear of it getting damaged or {gasp} dirty.  So I thought ... how can I jazz up my online planner to make it cuter.  My BFF google helped me find cute fonts/washi tape/backgrounds to download.  Now my online planner is SUPER CUTE!  Loving it!!

I think for awhile I am going to post on Mondays five items that I want to get done this week. Instead of trying to struggle with EVERYTHING, I am going to focus on what I deem most important for that week and work on those.  Don't get me wrong the items don't always have to be super serious but at least things that I feel will keep me on track.

So here are my plans for the week:

1) Pack my lunch each day.  

2) Post all week.

3) Organize my coupons.

4) Go to sleep by 10:00!  (Seriously no later than 10:30)

5) Find a book to read.

Okay so that is it, here are my goals for the week.  I think I am good to go on #1 and 2, but #3 and 4 are going to be rough.  I am sooooo behind on organizing my coupons and I am terrible about going to sleep "early" so I guess those will be my focus of conquering.

What are your goals for the week?  Do you have something looming that you need to get done?


  1. Well done! I am glad you are sticking too your digital planner idea and have made it your own with washi tape,etc. Yes, the bedtime thing blew up on me last night too. Alas, today is a new day!!

  2. This morning was rough. I've already made a list of things to fix and hopefuly tonight will be better. I plan on posting all my daily break downs each Monday with new goals for the week. I plan on being asleep tonight ... ON TIME!

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?
