Happy first day of June my little bunnies!
Did you guys remember to say “rabbit, rabbit, rabbit” this morning?
I know it’s a British tradition (shout out to my UK readers), and although I’m not really superstitious, it’s something my family has done for years! Of course, I did NOT remember this morning so I guess I’ll just be on the lookout for black cats and broken mirrors 😉
So, with this year already at the halfway point, I’ve been doing some thinking…
After reading this post by Amanda and this post by Colleen, I started considering the making a few goals of my own. While I’m not usually a goal-setter…I mean, how many of last year’s New Year’s resolutions did I keep?
The answer…um, 0.5?
So…allow me to present to you what took up about 4 hours of my afternoon today:
And in case you’re wondering, I AM still picking dried bits of mod-podge off my fingers! 😉
So why did I spend the majority of my Friday off, pouring over a table covered in
half a dozen magazines with scissors in my hand and cut out letters stuck to my face (don’t ask)? Well, I think there are a few things you should know about me…
1. I have an EXTREMELY poor memory
2. I am a visual person when it comes to ANYTHING
3. Ever since I got back from BLEND I’ve had a really hard time regaining my focus and direction (guess my brain’s still on vacation)
So now, I not only have a constant reminder of my goals (that fits oh so perfectly on my refrigerator door) with lots of pretty pictures to look at, but it is also something to hold me accountable and motivate me in a positive way.
Finish reading Mockingjay
Paint a picture (without a tutorial)
Go ONE WHOLE DAY un-plugged…no internet, no Netflix, NO CELL PHONE!
Yeah, pretty sure that last one’s gonna kill me, but I have become SO dependent on my connection to social media lately that it has really gotten sad and that really needs to change! BB doesn’t even have to ask what I’m doing half the time…he knows I’m Instagram stalking! 😉
As for Mockingjay…I’m halfway through today!
Juice every other day
Aim for 4 liters (128oz) of water each day
Strength training at least 3 days a week
Run 5K at LESS THAN a 9:00 pace
Host a guest post on KMB
Finish reviewing NuNaturals liquid stevia AND post the giveaway (oh, you LIKE that one, don’t you? ;))
Now I know you’re probably wondering about the whole juicing thing…but Heather, you don’t have a juicer!
Well, I do now!
BB and I went into K-Mart last weekend to check out patio furniture…they didn’t have anything I liked so we ended up wandering around for a bit. BB headed straight for the tools while I just happened to find myself in the kitchen aisle (I know, who knew, right?).
After about 15 minutes of perusing, I turned to leave the aisl and track down BB when all of a sudden, a yellow clearance tag caught my eye…
20% off baby!!
And, since I made a trip to Sam’s Club last night JUST to pick up some carrots in bulk, I decided to break it in today!
