5 for Five

It's Monday. I'm not happy about this. I'm in a grouchy mood. So let's just get to the good side of this post 5 for Five Link-Up!!
Here are my goals from 2 weeks ago. Green is success & Red is failure
1) Stick to Clean Eating!
2) I HAVE to go to the gym at least 4 times this week!
3) Write at least 3 postcards.
4) Get ALL my grading done.
5) Do something fun with friends! 

So clearly it has been a rough month. I just can't seem to get motivated to do anything. I go to work, come home and grade, throw in bible study and work on the weekend. I need to get out of my rut... any suggestions?

Here are this weeks goals...

1) Eat Clean 5/7 Days of the Week- I can do this. I've planned out my meals. I have a post planned too so make sure you check back!

2) Blog at least 3 Days- I'm setting myself up for success- I hope! 

3) Workout 4 Days- I need to do this. I feel better when I workout. Even if I just go for a 30 minute walk.

4) Be Productive- Instead of tweedling about I'm going to be productive. Even if I'm sitting, enjoying a show, I can grade papers. My hope is that if I do this throughout the week then I can enjoy my weekend more.

5) Continue My Bible Study- I'm part of a weekly Bible study, which is amazing. However, when I was doing daily devotions, I felt better. I felt in charge. I felt more whole.

Make sure you link-up with Jenn & Jess for this amazing link-up! 

P.S Please, Please, Please check out My Thirty-One Party that I'm hosting! These products are amazing and if you spend over $30 you'll get the Keep It Caddy for only $5! But order soon because it is ending in a few days!

5 For Five: Week 6

So last week I didn't post. At all. Not once. I didn't do my eating plan. Didn't do the gym as hard. I was unmotivated, unfocused, and not disciplined. I felt defeated and I gave into it. You see, I posted here about my weight struggles. This was a really hard post to write. I was hoping I'd get support, motivation, and realize that if others can do it, then I can too. This ideas was a FAIL. I received 2 encouraging comments. Now not that I need a ton of comments to inspire me, but it helps. It helps to know that others are out there going through the same things, and encouraging you. The worst part? I let it get to my head. I didn't overcome it.

Well no more... I'm back with fighting vengenance. I'm going to stick to my clean eating, follow through with my goals, and overcome my own thoughts and fears.

Here are my goals for the week. Make sure you link up with Jenn & Jess so we can all encourage each other!!

1) Stick to Clean Eating! I can not deviate from this. Even on Valentine's day when I'm celebrating with my students.

2) I HAVE to go to the gym at least 4 times this week! I can do this. I just have to go to bed early and get up early.

3) Write at least 3 postcards. Today I sent out mail. Sure it was only to my parents, but it was still fun. This is something easy I can do. If you want snail mail email me your address!

4) Get ALL my grading done. This may seem easy, but papers pile up fast! Progress reports are due on Thursday and then I have a long weekend. I want to enjoy it.

5) Do something fun with friends! I'm setting myself up for success on this one because I already have plans to go see Big Daddy Weave in concert. However, I frequently cancel fun things because I'm tired. Not this time!
