Summer Goals

I wanted to post these goals for the last half of Spring, but Summer will just have to do. Yay, goals!

You guys, I'm a lazy bum when it comes to taking care of my body and as my age goes up my waistline has continued to creep.

BODY GOALS - Exercise 30 minutes 4 times a week - right now I'm doing maybe one day of 30 minutes and that's obviously not going to cut it. With my wrist tendinitis, I'll have to stick to lower body exercises. I'm thinking maybe a squat challenge or something. I might even try 50 miles in July. I liked doing that and tracking!! I just need to find an app that tracks continuous and lets me post on my pics. Do you know an app that does this?

Eat all the things.
Not sure how I'm going to go about this goal. I've done pretty good cold turkey, but not recently or only having carbs/sweets before 2PM but then ice cream happens. I need to eat a lot more salads. This is a work in progress as I haven't settled on what will actually work. As I've gotten older my self control is out the window.

Hello, you must have fun during the Summer. I have a couple of trips with friends to Orlando and Jacksonville planned but not much else. My calendar is scarily wide open and as a planner that's driving me a little wild. However I've had weekend plans get cancelled quite a bit the last couple months so there's something to be said for planning.

Prayer Journal! I purchased this but haven't written in it. While in Costa Rica I kept a journal, and that included prayer but I need to be more intentional back home.

Teehee, I'm early but I'm linking up with Steph and Sara.

What are some of your goals for Summer?

What's New With Me

I read this on Kristen's blog every month and I always think I NEED TO LINK UP WITH THIS, but obviously I never have, until now.

It's that time of year, lol and this time I'm actually moving back to my parents house. My sister and I are moving into my parents house because they bought land to build a house a little north of us and have a farm with things like mini cows!!! Those are far off BUT I'm excited for all the things coming their/our way. We'll unfortunately all be sharing space while the house is built, BUT I'll be saving money and maybe pay off my student loans finally!!

Young adult and small group
I used to go straight home pretty much every night after work. This was good and all but I wasn't really building relationships or growing in my walk with God. I think I started small group in the Summer and then the young adult group in the Fall and I really didn't start making connections with friends from the young adult group until THIS semester. Building friendships as adults is awkward to me, IDK. We've done some things outside of group like a ball game and bike rides to dinner, I'm absolutely loving it and it's so good for me, too!

Books and Reading
I finally got back into reading. They aren't anything to "write home about" but I've really been enjoying the Harlequin Inspired Romance books. I also got rid of 75-100 books before the move and I don't miss them one bit. I finally ordered a prayer journal and can't wait to start that. Definitely after the big move on this weekend.

One of my friends moved back to Florida. She's over in Orlando, so even though it's not back home it's close enough I've been able to spend A LOT of time with her. We have done Sea World, Disney and several other fun things since she's been back. I will be sharing those at some point once I get settled but if you want to keep up with stuff like that Instagram is the best place. I'm not even great about posting there, but I'm trying to be better!

That's about all folks!

Pink Chair Weekend

Good morning lovies!!

I didn't have a super busy weekend, in fact the one thing I had to do was take down my Christmas tree. Anybody else still have theirs up? Well, I decided if I could get that done in January, I didn't care when I took it down as long as it wasn't still up in February. Don't worry, I have a fake tree so it wasn't rotting in my house or anything, lol.

I got that taken care of Saturday morning, but Friday night I enjoyed one of the three kinds of salads I made this week. This one was actually shown as a breakfast salad, but it works for any meal and refreshingly delicious!

Saturday, after I took down and packed away my Christmas stuff I had another salad, this time with shredded buffalo chicken on top. This is a healthier version of buffalo chicken because it uses plain Greek yogurt instead of cream cheese like a lot of buffalo chicken dips. I drizzled a little bit of ranch on top and couldn't even finish it all. My stomach is finally shrinking, yay!

Saturday afternoon I got a mani-pedi and then I stopped at a local shopping center looking for some specific things and came across a pink office chair. I have an office chair, so I didn't immediately pick it up. It was $70 cheaper than a pink sitting chair I had looked at and contemplated buying but this was more useful since it was an office chair and I typically read in bed or on the couch. Even though a pink sitting chair would look fabulous next to my bookshelf I didn't see myself using it.

That night, after I had helped my dad with renovating their bathroom, I couldn't stop thinking about it. Since it was at Home Goods, I knew it could disappear at any time so we headed off to pick it up.

Sunday was church, a meeting about an upcoming Costa Rica mission trip I'm going on and more renovations.

I also spent whatever time I had trying to catch up with Nashville. I stopped watching it because it was unnecessary drama and I thought with CMT picking it up they might stop that. I'm still in season 4 so I don't know if that's true but Deacon sure reminded me what a drama queen he was and I almost stopped watching again but taking it one episode at a time I've been able to make it through.

Next weekend is a little more packed with my mom's Birthday and maybe Gasparilla. How was your weekend?!

Linking up with Biana!
