Weekly Wishes – Beautiful

It’s that beautiful time again, time for Weekly Wishes!

Weekly wishes is an opportunity to share the goals and challenges that you want to accomplish in the week ahead. Melyssa at The Nectar Collective is kind enough to host this each week and I’m thrilled to join in, once again.

Weekly-Wishes beautiful

First up, let’s see how I did on last week’s, Weekly Wishes.

My number 1 goal last week was to Move more! I would say that I moved more, not by much but I did do a little something extra. I actually went on my first jog in ages. Typically Emmett and I just walk but I felt like jogging, so I did and it felt really really good.

#2 was Organize my work life. I did it, I did it! Well, I started it and made a good dent, there’s plenty more to go but I’m pleased with where I got.

#3 was to get Emmett outside 3 times. I also completed this one, which was tough because it was a very busy week but I knew I had dedicated myself to it and didn’t want to admit failure.

And finally… Stick to my goals. Well, obviously you can see that I stuck to them, and I am pretty darn proud of that. Woohoo!

Alright and now onto this week’s Beautiful Weekly Wishes.

  1.  Workout (hard) 4 times. I’m trying to give myself more specific goals, in order to give myself something very clear to focus on. This way I’m not making half-assed attempts at my success. My workouts can include, indoor spinning classes, running/walking intervals or outdoor riding of my bike. I want to focus on cardio this week, make it a habit, then add in the strength training.
  2. Make better use of my lunches. I don’t take a lunch everyday, but when I do I want to make the most of it. I want to spend the time either active (by walking outside my office), blogging or catching up on the blog articles I’m behind in reading. It is an hour, two or three times a week that I am under-utilizing.
  3. Work on building my My Finds Friday weekly link-ups. I started it last week but didn’t really do any real advertising for it. I posted it to Twitter and Facebook a few times but I could definitely do more with it. I don’t expect it to be huge immediately but I know I can do more to build my viewership. I want to find at least one more way to get myself seen!
  4. Make the most of my days off. I have Wednesday, Thursday and Friday off of this week and I have absolutely ZERO plans, and I want to keep it that way, that doesn’t mean I want to lay around either. I just want to take the day as it comes, walking, watching a little TV, blogging, literally doing whatever it is my hearts desires to do in that moment. I am taking Emmett to day care and I have a little momma guilt, but I really need some time to recoup. It’s been a very long time since I had a day to myself.

That’s it! That’s all she wrote! I’m really really excited about these goals this week, so that can only mean success right?

And now my beautiful picture!

Melyssa at The Nectar Collective has decided that each week her Weekly Wishes picture collection will have a theme. She has chosen beautiful as her first.

I chose to take a picture of my Concorde grapes from this weekend. They are my favorite kind of grapes but I just LOVE the way they look after they’ve been washed. The water beading up on them, makes them look so succulent, so much so that I went to town on almost half the bowl. I love those things!

Be sure to join in and link-up!

    Way to go with your goals! I keep telling myself that I need to get outside and get moving, but I always find some stupid excuse. Love your photo too by the way.

      Thanks for visiting, Amanda!

      I’m right there with you. I don’t know why it is so difficult to find the motivation to move. My husband has such an easy time with it, he looks forward to his workouts and when he can’t get out, he gets upset. Me, I’m thrilled when I don’t have to workout. I’d love to harness his motivation!
