7 GOALS FOR 2019 – WEEK 8 OF 52

Posted by Michelle on February 25th, 2019 . Filed under: 2019 Goals .


Hey hey, I’m back today with an update on my goals for the year.

So let’s get right to it, shall we?


1 – Lose 100 pounds.



I’m giving myself a pass for the week.  I had surgery on Thursday, there was some stress eating prior to, and then while being off work I ate like an asshole.  Getting my act together is the name of the game this week.

Only 88.2 pounds to go!


2 – Read 4 books.

Not much reading this week, but still working on book #2 In the Unlikely Event by Judy Blume.

1 down, 3 to go!


3 – Canning.

Nothing to report this week.


4 – Bake a pie from scratch.

This will happen. It will. But I need to get goal #1 moving before I can think about this again.


5 – Save $1000 cash.



With medical expenses and just booking a trip for next year that will need monthly payments made, this just isn’t going to happen.  I’m crossing it off the list and maybe if circumstances change we’ll revisit.  But no need feeling like a failure every week, KWIM?

Only $878 to go!


6 – Self-care.

Last Monday was a holiday, and after working 8 days straight, I needed it. I was so productive that day, and it. felt. good. My husband made me my favorite Cream of Wheat with chocolate chips for breakfast. And then we had a family clean-up-the-pantry party. I cleaned up my craftroom and wrapped birthday presents for my daughter. I wrote a letter to my aunt. I read the Pioneer Woman magazine. I took some care packages to a friend, and to my mother. We went out for family lunch, followed by a trip to the dollar store. I watched some Grey’s Anatomy, and then with the family we watched NCIS, and then just my husband and I watched This is Us. I was exhausted by the end of that day, but it felt so good to have a day off like that.
I also colored my hair, painted my nails this flashy blue color called Just Dance, and did a nice, milky mask.


7 – Do something with the blog.

Honestly, I almost didn’t show up today. I don’t know if anyone is here, but doing this keeps me accountable towards my goals. And not having much movement in the fat department, I wanted to not post. But I did it. And I’m motivated to keep on keepin’ on.


I’ll catch you here next Monday with this week’s update.

    I’m here!! I hadn’t worked on my blog for over a year. Still making cards sometimes, not as often as I’d like. Life has just been hard the past 4 years, most especially for me the past 6 months. In hospital twice on life support, and one extra time because my doctor didn’t like my oxygen levels while in his office. But I’m hanging in there. Had to move from my own home and trying to get it sold and moved into a small (500 sq ft) one bedroom place – and my home was over 1400 sq ft.) but it’s closer to my granddaughters (yea!!) and they come see me quite often now which makes this whole thing a little better. Trying to keep focusing on the good things that have happened in this past year, cause there were a lot, including ambulance got to me in time! You hang in there too.

    Oh my gosh, Terri – that’s a lot going on!
    Life support. TWICE?? Yikes. Thank goodness you are on the other side of that now.
    I’m not making cards as often as I’d like either; just a little crafting here and there. With the occasional card.
    Nice to hear from you – keep looking at the good!
