5 for Five

Well week one of setting some weekly goals for myself was a success!  I really tried to stick to them, and it made me feel a lot better about my week! So let's link up again with Jessica @ Fantastically Average and Jenn @ Party of One


1. Be in bed by 10 three out of five nights.  FAIL.  I wasn't in bed by 10 at all this week!  Kelly hurt his back last Sunday so there was a lot of getting situated and taking care of him before bed.   
2. Finish at least one crafty thing. Also a fail! :-/ I went to spray paint a picture frame yesterday just so I could say I did something, and I was out of the color I better luck next time!
3. Workout 6 out of 7 days. I actually got this done!  I didn't feel like going yesterday, but I did just so I could say I met one of my goals!

4. Drink 5 bottles of water a day. I kind of lost track, but I think I got this one done too.  I have really been trying to drink more water at school!
Funny side note:
I have been keeping a bottle of water on my cart that I take to my other room for reading groups (long story short, I have to go to a different room to teach for two periods a day.  I have a cart that I take that acts as a traveling desk).  I took a drink of my bottle of water on Thursday, and it tasted like drinking fountain water.  I thought that was weird because I NEVER fill my water bottle up at the drinking fountain.  I thought that maaaaybe it was someone else's, but then whose water bottle could it be besides mine!?  The next day I had a new bottle sitting on my cart.  When I brought my kids back to the room, one of the girls said, "Ooooh that's where I left my water bottle!"  BLEH!!!!

5. Finish my lesson plans through November.  I didn't do this, but I actually decided early on that I don't want to work that far ahead.  I planned for the whole month of October, and I was constantly changing the dates around on my plans.  So, I decided that I will do my plans a couple weeks ahead of time, but not an entire month.
2 out of 5.  Not so good.
Here are my goals for this week:
1.  Be in bed by 10:00 three out of five nights.  Since I didn't meet it last week, I'm going to try again this week.
2.  Finish at least one crafty thing.  Same for this one.
3.  Keep track of how many calories I eat using the Lose It! app on my phone.  I have gotten a little too lenient with my eating lately, and it's time to crack down again. 
4.  Workout for at least an hour 6 out of 7 days.  I met my work out goal last week, but a couple of my workouts weren't very good.  So I'm putting a time limit on it!
5.  Finish my lesson plans for next week before Friday.  If I get this done, then I can leave right after school on Friday and not come in on Sunday!
Wish me luck!

Good luck with the keeping track of your calories. I always get really into it, then I forget to track it and I lose my momentum. I hope you are better at it than I am!

Thanks for linking up with us again, friend! That story about the water bottle cracks me up- and makes me feel sick all at the same time ;) Water is one of my goals this week- I'm already struggling with it so I commend you on your accomplishment!

You have some fantastic goals for this week, again! I'm looking forward to hearing how you do!

Hi there! I'm Erin, a new follower! I found you through Jenn @ Party of One! Great to meet a fellow teacher/blogger!

You've got some great goals there! What do you think of the Lose It! app? I used Calorie Counter myself, but it's not perfect.

I nominated you for a Liebster Award! Go to my post to find out more:

That story about the water bottle actually made me cringe! I think I need to make "drink more water" and "workout X times" a more regular occurrence on my list, since sometimes I forget to keep up with it and my body gets all out of whack! Thanks so much for linking up!!
