You may be wondering what's been going on... maybe not but I'll share anyways. This spring was crazy. Our school has a new principal who is great but comes with many changes. I finished my first year teaching and survived. I went home to Michigan for 2 weeks this summer and it was glorious. I moved closer to my school, no more 1 hour drives! I lost my best friend (don't worry she didn't die, she just moved across the country). There have been a few changes around here!
As much as I needed that break, I'm very ready to come back to blogging. And what a better time to do it than the beginning of September? I'm linking up with Jenn for 5 for 5 and she describes it like this It's a weekly goal linkup that I host every Monday- from here going forward! It gives you a chance to blog about your top 5 (or however many suites you!) goals for the upcoming week! It's a great way to stay motivated & accountable for your goals.
I'm taking a beat from Jenn's page and am posting goals for the month of September and for the week.
5 For September
1) Loose 10 Pounds
I've recently joined Weight Watchers. I just had my 5th weigh-in and am down 8.4 lbs! I want to continue to loose about 2lbs/week.
2) Finish Unpacking
I moved across town. I love my new place. But I moved 2 days before I went to Michigan, then I came back and started getting ready for the new year. I still have at least 10 boxes to unpack!
3) Keep up with my Calendar.
I feel better when I'm organized. When I have everything written down. Right now I'm using Google Calendar but come the 10th (payday) I'm going to splurge on a new planner. Any suggestions?
4) Refresh with Dave Ramsey
I admit it. I have debt. School loans and credit cards. I want to get this paid off ASAP and I know Dave Ramsey's program works. I just need to take the time to refresh.
5) Read at least 2 books
I love to read. I used to hide in my room to read. Give me a book and I'd have it finished within a day. But lately I'm not taking the time to enjoy it. I want to change that, especially now that I have a Kindle :)
5 For the Week
1) Blog at least 3x this week
I know I can do this. I already have ideas for posts
2) Hand Write Notes
Who doesn't love getting a handwritten note? It makes the mail so much better!
3) Workout at least 4 days
I put this in my schedule. It's very easy to do, I just need to do it!
4) Track my WW Points
This is easy for me, but I wanted to give myself at least one success this week
5) Have All My Copies for School Done
This past Saturday I went into school. I was SO PRODUCTIVE! I want to keep up with my copying, grading, etc. in my classroom.
Link-Up with Jenn for these weekly goals! They are fun posts and help keep you accountable!
