7 GOALS FOR 2019 – WEEK 2 OF 52

Posted by Michelle on January 14th, 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.   Oof.  Not a good week.  I barely lost another pound.  My dailies were pretty good.  But we have too many desserty sort of things at home left from the holidays and I know about them.  I think about them.  My husband calls it “doing clean-up.”  Yeah.  I have this thing in me that says that I need to finish them off so that I get rid of the temptation.  So finish them off, I did!  The upside to the week though is that I did well at my Sunday job – only eating the food that I brought and not hitting the vending machine.  Only 96.5 pounds to go!

2 – Read 4 books.  I started reading Jillian Michaels’ Winning by Losing.  I found an hour that I can read every other week.  I almost got halfway through the book.  I can’t say that I’m enjoying it though.  She brags a lot about her success as a coach on The Biggest Loser and it gets to be a bit nauseating.  I’m not really getting anything out of the book or learning anything new.  But I am going to finish it because a girl’s got goals!

3 – Canning.  Nothing to report here.

4 – Bake a pie from scratch.  Nothing to report here.

5 – Save $1000 cash.  I picked up some hours at my Sunday job over the holidays and netted $140.  I gave myself $35, put $35 towards my $1000 goal, and then gave the other $70 to the house.  Only $915 to go!

6 – Self-care.   I worked on some more Valentine’s cards Saturday morning.  I made myself a giant cup of coffee, and put on the Frank Sinatra station.  I have been working only with crafty supplies that I have on-hand because I just have too many things that I have bought or have been given as gifts, and they go unused.  This week I used some little matryoshka cards that I had and stamped them with a Valentine sentiment.  I also sent out 3 (not Valentine) cards – sending real mail makes me feel good.

I trashed my knee at the end of November and just started getting Synvisc injections.  This week was the last of the 3.  They say I should feel better 2 weeks after the last one.  Here’s hoping, because I have been in pain + walking with a cane! for far too long now.

7 – Do something with the blog.  Hi, 2 weeks in a row!

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