On a Roll!

1 Pensive Blurps
Three weeks after making my goals, this is a personal evaluation of my progress.

Health: A-
So far I have stuck to my goal of working out at least 4 times per week and the calorie counting has also been right on track. I love the way I feel when I've worked out! But I must admit that I am failing as we speak. Since I had the day off yesterday I got out of routine and didn't do my regular workout. And today, I still haven't and possibly may not. But I can still pull myself out of it. I can workout this afternoon while Aiden naps and then wed, Thurs, Fri. Or even save on for the weekend. So I haven't officially failed for this week yet, but need to get my butt in gear!

Home: A+
While it took longer to get motivated than I would have liked, I am very happy with the progress that I have made on our home. We've had more homemade meals and even have had guests over to enjoy them as well. Our public areas are all clean and presentable.

Marriage: B+
TK and I went on a wonderful date night last weekend and have set a goal for at least one date night a month. Gotta start somewhere, right?

Motherhood: C
Aiden and I always have the pleasures of spending lots of quality time together and I love it! I just don't feel like i'm always using that time as wisely as I should. I still haven't upped the reading time and I feel that that is very important..

Spirit: D-
I haven't been reading or having personal prayers. Not daily, at least. I've done well at putting time into my calling and serving others, but those two, those simple tasks, have escaped me and I need to fix that!

Time Management: B
Well. Cleaning took priority of my working out. Err. Rather, watching a show or two took priority of the fee time I COULD have used for exercising... so that didn't go so well, but still, I feel like I got a LOT done this weekend! and overall feel pretty ok with my time management.

Overall, I feel I have improved but can still do better! So here's to steppin it up a notch!

Peace, Love, and CookieDough.

"If you've come to see me, come on in! If you've come to see my home, make an appointment."

I remember this phrase being displayed in the foyer of my mother's home. I remember never understanding it or why she thought it was worthy of display. But now, as I have not only moved out on my own but find myself caring for and cleaning up after others and not just my OWN messy tendencies, I get it.

We moved at the middle of march. For a few weeks boxes cluttered walkways, and then slowly moved to corners. Slowly we'd condense them, but they were still very much there. Not to mention dirty dishes, empty wrappers, and the majestic mountain range of clothes (because I hate folding even more than laundering). But not this week. Nope. After this last weekend, I am no longer ashamed to have company over.

I spent my three day weekend organizing, folding, cleaning, sweeping, laundering, and even folding. That's right people, no more mountain of clothing in the hallway blocking my bedroom (given my bedroom still looks like walmart threw up all over my floor but i'll just have to get to it another day. At least its behind a closed door that no one but TK and I should be in anyway.... and he's sealed to me for eternity, messy room or not ...sucker!)

My kitchen is clean but most importantly my SINK is empty!!! I just HATE a sink full of dishes!!! My living room is box free! My dining room is surprisingly spacious! And my carpets are all vacuumed! OH!!! around Aiden's room is spotless and open and perfect for him to play and crawl around! I am just so stinking proud of myself and happy with my home!!

So come and see it!! No appointment necessary! Well, at least not this week :)

Peace, Love, and CookieDough.
