I slept so well last night. Well…let me back up a bit. My mom’s birthday was yesterday, so we decided to all come to my house and order food in from the restaurant across the street, and play a little Apples to Apples with my niece, while watching the Ohio State game, laughing, having a few cocktails, and just relaxing. It was such a nice night.
My husband is a beer lover (and beer maker), which I am sure I have mentioned before. He used to enjoy beers several different times during the week, but a month or so ago, decided to start eating healthier to lose a few l-b’s. So, now he only drinks beers on Saturdays. So, that means he drinks lots of beers on Saturdays. The amount of beer he drinks is directly proportional to the loudness of his snoring. So, after being awoken a few times by it, I went into our guest bedroom upstairs. And I slept so well. It was lovely.
Well, I slept so well, I decided to set some goals.
I am going to copy off of my best friend, Liz, at her blog and do monthly goals. After I read her update today, I thought it was a great idea as I try to pull myself together.
So, here are my goals for October:
1. Work out at least 2 times a week for at least 45 minutes.
I have been tracking calories for almost a week now, and I feel like I am ready to start exercising, again. My goal is not that big, but I want it to be attainable.
2. Make a dinner meal plan for Monday-Friday.
I spend way too much money at the grocery store. I want to start focusing on a meal plan, and the food that I already have in my house to stick to my grocery budget more. I think that if I went to the meal plan, I would do much better. I know I did this several months ago, and it truly did make a difference. It also took away a minor, but real stress that I have each day deciding what to make for dinner.
3. Work on chores with husband for 20 minutes Monday-Thursday after dinner.
I had this idea to incorporate my husband into the chore process. I thought that we could make a list of the chores that have to be done around the house pretty regularly, and then after dinner, set a timer for 20 minutes and work on the chores. Things I was thinking are: putting away clean laundry, cleaning bathrooms, dishes, vacuuming, dusting, and other things that may even be more deep cleaning. I think if we did this, the chores would feel a lot less daunting.
4. Try at least 2 new recipes this month from my gigantic recipe binder that I made earlier this year. It is an organized binder of all of recipes I’ve saved or cut out of magazines. Then, blog about the recipes.
Okay…let’s hope I can stick to these goals.
I am heading over to my parents in a little bit to watch the Brown’s. My family is from Cleveland, so we are Brown’s fans, Indian’s fans, and Cav’s fans.
Everybody has their cross to bear, I suppose.
ha ha ha.
I hope everybody enjoys their Sunday.
