7 GOALS FOR 2019 – WEEK 10 OF 52

Posted by Michelle on March 11th, 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.


My weight was all over the place this week.  And I was * mostly * good.  Annoying.  I have been having trouble sleeping lately – one night I was up literally all night.  I was up 4 hours in the middle of the night another night.  And the rest of the week I was up a couple of hours after I went to sleep and was awake for another couple of hours.  Could this have something to do with it?  I dunno.  Also, I hurt my knee at the end of November and have been hobbling around on a cane since then while they tried a couple different injection medications + pain pills.  And I’ve noticed that when I get on the scale, because of the knee pain, I am not standing straight – I am wobbling.  Maybe that is contributing to the number perhaps not being correct?  I’m really not sure.  But I have a doctor appointment this week, so we’ll see what the scale shows there.  Either way, it’s March and I’ve got a shit ton of a ways to go if I am going to hit this goal.

Only 87.4 pounds to go!


2 – Read 4 books.


I was in need of a bookmark and was able to pick one up at church this week while I am still reading book #2 In the Unlikely Event by Judy Blume.

1 down, 3 to go!


3 – Canning.



4 – Bake a pie from scratch.

See #3.


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 week I shared my super cool new Vans and needing to return them because they hurt my feet.  I returned them, and used the money to buy some super nice wrapping paper.  Wrapping is my jam.  I love sitting and wrapping presents and being creative with a tag or a handmade bow.  And I like to use nice wrapping paper.  So I placed an order at Papyrus – and can’t wait for it to get here!  I watched – and finished – the latest season of the Great British Bake Off, and then powered through – and finished – the latest season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey.  Just chillin’ and not stressin’ is a good thing.  I like to cook, but don’t do it much because I work 6 days a week.  But decided that would be my day-off project: chicken pozole and Mexican jello.  The family was pleased with both …. and that pleased me.


7 – Do something with the blog.

Still here, being accountable, and keeping my goals top-of-mind.


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