5 For Five

Good morning, ya'll! This 5 for Five is coming to you at bright in early for a change! I feel like this early start means this is going to be a good week.

I am linking up with Jenn for 5 for Five again this week to see how well I did with meeting my goals and setting some new ones.

My 5 for Five goals from last week and my results:
  1. Drink at least 336 ounces of water Monday thru Sunday. This breaks down to 6, 8 ounce glasses a day. Easy enough, right? Must be easier said than done because I was lucky to have drank 200 ounces.
  2. Create a meal plan for the next 3 weeks; grocery shop. Shopping for 4 people and a baby is expensive, not to mentioned a bit overwhelming. I got one week planned and bought for and that's a success in my book.
  3. Prepare for Jordan and Vanessa's visit by planning activities in and outside of the house. Done and done. I have a few things planned for us and lots of pool days since the temperatures are racing towards 100 quickly!
  4. Get James' Father's Day gift. Operation get the most impossible person to shop for a gift - COMPLETE!
  5. Hit the gym/pavement for 3, 60 minute workout sessions this week. I hit the Y for a Zumba class once last week and walked 2 other days for 60+ minutes. I am going to have to start walking earlier in the day thanks to the impending heat.

Here are my goals I am striving to complete this week:
  1.  Be up and at work by 6:30 each morning. This will allow me to have the rest of the day free and open to spend time with the kids and get out of the house before it gets too hot.
  2. Work out for a total 300 minutes this week. Last week, I was able to workout 3 times, let's up that goal to 5 times this week.
  3. Clean C's closet. I need to pack away the clothes he has grown out of and pack away some of the toys he has grown out of as well.
  4. Read 3 new blogs and follow 1 new blog. I usually participate in 2 link ups a week so I have the opportunity to find new blogs to read and follow.
  5. Put away the laundry. Currently, there are 3 large laundry baskets full of clothes to put away along with 2 suitcases full of clothes and random items from our trip to Dallas sitting in our bedroom floor. Our room is pretty much a mess. 
All these goals seem easy enough! I just hope that with the added responsibility of a 10 and 15 year old, I remember to take time for me and to stick to my weekly schedule and to-do's.

Have a good week! Remember to check back next week to see how well I do at reaching and completely my goals.

  1. I found your blog through my friend Mallorie at "Happy Home". Your little man is SO precious. I have a daughter who is almost 9 months old, and I love reading about little ones who are around her age!
