Happy Monday and Weekly Wishes – Memories
Weekly Wishes is a link-up started by Melyssa from The Nectar Collective. It is a place where you can post and share you wishes and goals for the week ahead on your blog, Facebook page, Twitter account, etc and then link it up on Melyssa’s blog. I LOVE doing this because it holds me accountable for the week ahead. I’ve shared my goals with the world (through my blog) and I know people will read and wonder whether I stuck to my goals. It definitely keeps me honest!
We had such a great weekend! I had decided at the end of last week that I wanted to go shopping to look for Christmas decorations for the house, but convincing Seamus that we needed to go to Christmas Tree Shops on a Saturday is quite the feat. Somehow I managed it, and thanks to Emmett’s early wake up call, we headed out early Saturday morning. Even as early as we got there, the place was packed and it was hard to maneuver through the holiday decoration displays with a cart and a toddler who wants to grab everything. Thankfully, all of the people held Emmett’s attention and we were able to avoid him pulling delicate ornaments off the shelves.
I ended up with a ton of loot and can’t wait to decorate! I’ll probably wait another week or two, I just wanted to make sure we got out to buy stuff before it was all picked over and there wasn’t anything nice left. I’ll share pictures of how everything looks, once I’ve decorated.
Sunday, Emmett was once again up early (5:30 to be exact), but because of that I was able to get a ton of stuff done and still have plenty of time for play with Emmett. We went grocery shopping early, I did a ton of laundry and then did some food prep for the week. We also read the same 3 books about a hundred times, repetition is where it’s at, right? It was a really amazing day and weekend, now I just need to get through the week so I can get to my next one.
This week’s Weekly Wishes theme is memories. I chose the above picture because this was the very first moment I got to hold my son, one of the best memories of my entire life. I had a c-section so I wasn’t able to hold him until after I had been sewn shut. They did bring him over to me while I was still on the table and I was able to whisper sweet things in his ear, but I wasn’t able to hold him until about 45 minutes later. It was the sweetest moment, just feeling his oh so soft skin against mine, absolute perfection.
This week was a big fail, and I even contemplated skipping this post, but if I ever want to get better at reaching my goals I can’t allow myself to skip. So without further ado…
My Weekly Wishes
My first goal last week was to do a load of laundry a night. I didn’t do a single load, until Sunday, I was super lazy and have no good excuse.
Next up was finishing my Everyday Happy class. I also didn’t work on this, but I did work on a lot of blog posts so I wasn’t just avoiding doing any extra work. There’s a slight positive here, I suppose.
Finally, I said I’d move my body and again I failed. I didn’t do a single thing other than a lone walk on Friday afternoon that was super short. Ugh! I’m so frustrated with myself.
This Week’s Goals:
- Cut out all gluten from my breakfast. More to come on this in a future post, but I’d like to stick with good healthy proteins and fats.
- Do one load of laundry a night. Yep, this is on the goal list again, when I stick to it, Sundays are easier.
- Go on two walks. That’s it, two walks and I’ll be happy. I’m thinking of creating a list of rewards for every milestone I hit. I’ve done these before but never stick to them, I’ll either buy the reward before I’ve earned it or I’ll reach the milestone and never buy the reward. I’m going to give this some thought over the next week.
Alright those are my wishes for the week!
