Hey everyone! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I know I sure did … it was three days! I took Friday off, since I have accumulated so much overtime and had those hours to burn. And I thought I deserved it after the week I had.
Thursday night included celebrating a friend’s university graduation (she’s a nurse now!), and Friday afternoon included catching up with my best friend while she prepares for her upcoming wedding (I got my bridesmaid dress!).
Friday night was filled with a sushi dinner, cute boys (hey, I’m nothing but honest on here haha), and a going away party.
Saturday included an incredibly late sleep-in (I can’t remember the last time I woke up AT ELEVEN O’CLOCK) and an incredibly late night birthday celebration (including a 3AM patio pizza party, whoopsie).
I bummed around for most of yesterday, restarting my Dexter obsession and taking a nap.
It was a great weekend. Now I’m ready to take on the week … and this month! I can’t believe it’s JUNE already!
I’ve never been one of those people who makes a list of goals to accomplish. I always have a couple of things in mind that I’d like to get done … but I never write them down to hold myself accountable. I just commented on Heidi’s bucket list post the other day, saying I have the makings of a bucket list in my brain, but I’ve never written it down. I
think know I would work harder to achieve goals if I wrote them down.
I’m starting small. That big bucket list will come. I’ve decided to set some goals for this month! Meg and Meredith are just two of my favorite bloggers who have inspired me to do this for the month
1) Try a new recipe. I’m in a rut when it comes to food. You’ve seen my WIAW posts!
My diet consists of a lot of overnight oats, chicken breasts/veggie combos, and turkey wraps. I love all of those things, but it would be nice to shake up my routine a little bit. I would like to try one new recipe … maybe I’ll get to one of the countless recipes I’ve favorited from blogs?!
2) Build up to running 5K on the treadmill. I don’t think I’ve mentioned it on the blog yet … but I’ve been trying to incorporate running into my cardio routine. I want to love running, and I’m slowly starting to really enjoy it! I love hearing the stories about people tackling races and achieving personal bests times. I think that’s a long ways away for me, but it’s a place I’d like to get to eventually. My distance has been getting farther and farther when I hit the treadmill. I’m going to hit 5K on the treadmill by the end of the month!
3) Have a wonderful 22nd birthday! I don’t think I’ll have too hard of a time reaching this goal
I have a great group of friends who will be celebrating with me in a couple of weeks, and even a friend or two coming in from out of town! I have a very special birthday this year, because it falls on the same date as Father’s Day. That’s also the day I was born, if you’re interested in learning a little bit more about me I will hang out with friends on the night of the 16th (dinner and dancing are obviously in order … two of my favorite things!) and then I will spend time at my parent’s house on the actual day of my birthday/Father’s Day, June 17th. I can’t wait!
4) Continue going to evening spin classes. I really have been enjoying this, and it’s something I’d like to keep doing. Sometimes it’s tough to get there because I’m tired/grumpy after work, but I think it’d be best to channel that emotion into physical activity. When I go to spin classes at night, it’s often my second workout of the day. I will need to remind myself not to push it too hard, but it’s really nice to have that endorphin rush to start my day and end it.
I think four goals is a great start! I’m excited to work towards accomplishing these!
Do you set goals each month? How was your weekend?
