7 GOALS FOR 2019 – WEEK 7 OF 52

Posted by Michelle on February 18th, 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.  



Last week I said I wanted to enjoy Valentine’s Day.  And I did:  the day before, the day of, and the day after.  No movement to report for the week.  However this week I’m having vocal cord surgery and I’m thinking that a few days of pudding and jello (I’ll be sure to get the low-cal/low-sugar stuff) might help the number move.

Only 88.2 pounds to go!


2 – Read 4 books.  

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. 

I was planning to make a peppermint pudding pie with a chocolate crust for Valentine’s Day.  But my aunt works at a bakery and brought us over a bunch of sweets, plus we had one of those store-bought cheesecakes with all the different flavored slices.  So adding the pie would have been too much.  Maybe I’ll make it for Easter?  Or Fat Tuesday, maybe.  I’ve got all the supplies, just need the occasion to. 


5 – Save $1000 cash.  

No new savings to report.  Though I did find this cute little handmade bag that I picked up in Mexico years ago and I am using it to keep the cash in.

Only $878 to go!


6 – Self-care. 

I got annoyed with my hair and cut my bangs one morning before work.  It’s given me a completely new look and I kinda love it right now.  I had a lovely Valentine dinner with my fam + mother came over; gifts, dinner, desserts.  I painted my nails for the first time in 2+ years.  Because I work 6 days a week I haven’t been able to get to church as often as I’d like, so I started subscribing to the daily readings email and have been enjoying that at the start of my days.  I enjoyed my favorite unsweetened iced tea (with 5 Splenda) from Sonic on the way to work 3 times this week. 


7 – Do something with the blog. 

Hello, again ….


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