Yesterday when we were on a walk I made the observation that Charlie kinda resembles this handsome lad…
…Pepe Le Pew! And ever since, I can’t stop thinking of my “Pepe Puppy”
1. Listen to my body.
-Attend at least 1 fitness class a week. Yup! I went to a Pilates mat class this afternoon- a great class for stretching and strength [your own body weight creates resistance]…
-Take time to rest when I am exhausted or sick. Yup! I originally planned to take my rest day on Friday but after an exhausting day Wednesday a rest day sounded fabulous on Thursday…
-Don’t sweat the small stuff. Ehhh. This week was super tough with it being the last week of the second quarter at school and I def let it get to me. But on the bright side, I’m halfway done with my first year of teaching!
2. Save money.
-Clip coupons. Yup! I flipped through the weekly grocery deals in the newspaper and made a list of this weeks savings and I also clipped TONS of coupons from the circular…
-Wait and shop sales. Yup! I saved approximately $50 this week at the grocery store using coupons and my store cards!
-Buy what I need, not what I want. Yup! Yesterday when Ryan and I were at the mall, I picked up two things at the Trish McEvoy make-up counter and used a Nordstrom gift card and some rewards dollars so I only paid $3! I also resisted the urge to buy a pair of flats- when we were walking throughout the mall, I saw a bunch of flyers on the Steve Madden store window that said “All flats $9.99 and boots 14.99″! The flats were cute [and practically a steal], but they were def a want, not a need…
3. Train Charlie.
-To recognize his name and to come on command. DONE!
-To sleep soundly throughout the night in his bed. DONE!
-To sit. Yup! I’ve been practicing this I give him a treat and Ryan does too when they’re playing fetch…
Last Week’s Goals
-To schedule my workouts [independent and classes] into my calendar and stick to them. Yup! I entered workouts into my calendar and for the most part I stuck to them, with the exception of switching my rest day and skipping BodyPump on Saturday but I still went to the gym.
-To drink more water and less seltzer water. Yup! I had 1 four days this week which is much less than my usual 2 each day! Adding a slice of lime definitely added a little pizazz to the otherwise boring water.
-To recognize when Charlie needs to go out for a walk. Ehhh. We still need to work on this…
-To start researching potential wedding venues. Yup! I contacted another potential venue to set up a tour!
-To finish and submit all of my second quarter grades. DONE!
This Week’s Goals
-To schedule my workouts [independent and classes] into my calendar and stick to them.
-To recognize when Charlie needs to go out for a walk.
-To start researching potential wedding venues.
-Cook 2 hot dinners.
