Goals n Things

Now that I have been out of work for almost two months, I realize that I am starting to make more goals and really enjoying getting through them. So far, I have read one book... which is an accomplishment considering I rarely ever finish a book and I did so in just two weeks! But tomorrow starts a new goal -- working out and eating well.

My whole life I have never been the healthiest person and my weight has always been up and down. Unfortunately, I have not been blessed with the greatest metabolism or the desire to be active regularly.... but this all has to change. Last year I lost 20 lbs and since then, I have gained a little over 10 lbs of it back! I hate it because I know how good it felt to lose the weight and just have the energy to do more things. Tomorrow I am going to start up on journaling my meals and snacks and will be working my best at having a regular workout 1 hour per day, 5 days out of the week. I know that this will help keep me motivated to eat healthy too.

Here are a couple of other things I look forward to completing while "unemployed:"

-- Read my Bible each day
-- Pray more
-- Read My Sister's Keeper
-- Throw things away!
-- Organize my Scrap stuff
-- Catch up with my Albums
-- Work on items for an Etsy shop
-- Go to bed at a regular time!

Some of you may have similar goals and I hope that you guys all will be able to achieve them (in a timely matter haha). I am going to blog on my achievements as they come along, I hope you dont mind! Sometimes I just need a little accountability to keep moving forward and I am really looking forward to finding my successful in as many of these goals as possible while out of work. God willing I wont be out of work for too long, but either way, I hope that this time will get me into some better habits :)

Amy I am with you on this. I have been out of work since September and this is getting old fast. We live in a coastal community and not much here.

I will try to be a buddy of sorts as I need to do these things also.

I need to work my business some every day as well, because I have had a tendency to believe that if I just talk about it, people would want to purchase such great products. I am going to go back through and DO in order the courses in the Master's Training Academy and the Continuing Education.

I need to do it since we moved and a lot has been forgotten and changed.

God be with us as we travel a new road. Hugs

Great goals! You will love "My Sister's Keeper" although you need to know that books by this author are books that provoke thought and reflections. They are not always 'happily ever after books.' I have read several of her books and love them because they really make me stop and think about how I feel but at the same time, I always need a 'pick me up' book next. I wish you the best on your goals!

Is is wrong to wish to be unemployed? (at least for the summer?) I'd like to spend more time with my kids, but DH says we need both incomes. Sigh.
My Sister's keeper is great but keep the kleenex handy, you may need them by the end!

I have to say that I am totally enjoying unemployment and (not so secretly) enjoying not being able to find a job thus far. It is ok, Emma, I had a bunch of friends that were jealous when I told them that I had been laid off :)

As for Sister's Keeper -- cant find it anywhere, so I will have to decide if I want to wait to see the movie before I read it... we will see!

Thanks ladies!
