Weekly Gratitude and Goals

My Gratitude for this week:

  • It was a book club filled weekend for us. I had a book club Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon. The Toddler came with, of course. Though I’m starting to think I may need to consider getting a sitter for the Saturday evening club. That’s held at someone’s house and he did not behave.
  • I worked on one of my upcoming blogging projects this weekend and made two recipes for the Toddler to criticize. The muffins came out great (hidden veggie puree and all) and he instantly devoured one but as it turns out I am horrible at flipping pancakes and he promptly tossed those. But, I made a ton and he’s been eating them during the week for breakfast, so even if they didn’t turn out pretty, they served their purpose. Hopefully, they look good enough to include as part of the project. Other cooks better than myself can still use the idea. I’m trying to come up with several ways to use a baby food product differently than its main purpose. Should be a fun post. Stay tuned.
  • The dirt cake I made for the previous blogging project was requested for my book club potluck meal. This time, I made it with pudding and whipped topping instead of pudding and yogurt, and it turned out ah-mazing. There were no leftovers after the meeting. Win!
  • The hubs is returning for Memorial Day weekend so yay I’m already living in the weekend.


My Goals for the upcoming week:

  • Continue my progress with the Nutrisystem diet. 20 pounds down so far. Need to keep making progress. I keep going up and down and up because I’ve been slacking.
  • Keep walking several times a week. Weather permitting.  Toddler demands it though – can’t get away without taking the boy outside.
  • Drink more water, aim for 100 oz/day. I’m doing this also with drinking Zeal.
  • Start working on my June content calendar.
  • Stop biting my nails!
  • Go to bed before midnight!
  • Read, physically, not just audiobooks. I’m failing this since I spend all my free time blogging until midnight.
  • Work with Baby H on his fits, and biting 🙁 and be consistent in correcting him.

This party will start on Fridays, but you are welcome to link up any time during the week.

    • Well some days I do drink about 100, other days I forget totally. Though they say you should aim to drink half your weight in ounces, and I’m overshooting it now that I’ve lost a lot of weight.

    So funny, since I’ve been back to blogging, for the week, I’ve already had two nights of being up well after midnight. I guess it’s just part of the game. Does this post always land on a Friday? I want to get in on the link up.

    • Hi Angela! Yes this party is on Fridays BUT the linky is open all month. One linky for the entire month – so link up any time if you have something posted about gratitude and/or goals.

        Ah ok, awesome!! I gotta get on my goal post, I have to do a follow up from my New Years resolutions.

    I just wanted to say Thank You for your faithfulness here at this party each week. With being a mom, working mom, wife, and all other titles you wear and blogger, it can all get a bit overwhelming, so thank you! Happy Memorial Day.
