In the past I have posted my monthly goals with about a 1% success rate. Over the weekend I decided that I will now post one weekly goal. That seems a little more managable than 3-6 monthly goals. Since I have been steadily gaining weight over the last few months, I really need the confidence boost that comes with accomplishing my goals.
This week my goal is to avoid alcohol for one week. I started on Monday and so far I have stuck to it. I know this probably sounds really easy for some people, but I am going to be at my mother-in-law's house for the next week or so. She is the kind of person that pours you a glass of wine as soon as you walk in the door, without even asking. Of course, polite little me, I don't want to offend so I don't refuse it. Also, in my family it's just un-American to watch a football game without a beer in hand.
Two days down, five to go! I'll check back on Monday and let you know how I do.

It's been quite awhile since I've posted my goals. This month I joined the Get Movin' Colorado Challenge through LiveWell Colorado and MapMyFitness to get 30 minutes of activity for 30 days in May. So far I'm off to a good start, I've done 40 minutes or more all three days. I think I can keep this streak going!
I'm trying to get people in my office on board with going for a 30 minute walk everyday. Since we always eat our lunches at our desks anyway it's not like we have to take an extra break! I'm feeling very positive that I can do this. I'm hoping that this challenge will make 30 minutes of activity a habit for me. Since normally I'm pretty good with the nutrition part of my healthier lifestyle, and my biggest challenge is finding the motivation to exercise.
So here are my three goals for May:
*Get 30 minutes of physical activity every day.
*Actually wear my pedometer everyday.
*Get at least 50% of my house mother-in-law approved clean and organized.
For the past few months I've had a hard time remembering to wear my pedometer. Once I get back into the habit of wearing it everyday I will set a daily step goal.
I have to admit, I am an extremely lazy person when it comes to house work. Most of the time I have clutter and dust everywhere. I am very, very, very embarrassed my the state of my house, so much so that I rarely have company and even my mother-in-law hasn't been invited to my house in over a year (and she only lives about 2 miles away). Don't get me wrong, I love my mother-in-law and she isn't one of those people that comes through with a white glove or anything, in fact, she probably doesn't even care. I am just tired of living in a dirty house.
I think I can do it. Besides, we're hoping to sell our house sometime between now and next summer so I better get on the cleaning!

I have decided that I will go back to school this year. I'm done waiting for the right time. I wanted to go back last year, but my husband talked me out of it because we were planning on moving out of state within the last year. He convinced me that it would be too difficult to go to school, work full time, and move all at the same time. Here we are a year later and we aren't any closer to moving than we were last year. I've decided that there will never be a right time. I just have to make it the right time.
I am tired of dreading going to work everyday. I feel like if I go to college I will have more opportunities available to me. I am kind of scared. It's been 11 years since I was in high school. I have never applied for scholarships or colleges before. I'm 29 years old, and I still have no idea what I want to do with my life. All I know is that I want to go to school, and I want a job where I can make a difference. So today I will start my search. Wish me luck!
