Weekly goals! Make it a good one!

Operation Skinny Jeans

Goals set last week:

1. Keep up with those quick and easy workouts, I have no excuse for not fitting them in. 
Nailed it! I've been keeping up with my 300s whenever I have a few moments and adding some new ab workouts.  I even brought the hula hoop in so I could keep moving while watching Extreme Weight Loss,

2. Make an effort again to organize a fitness social event.
Womp womp...I didn't even give this a decent shot.  I left a message for one person and never really pushed it.

3. Create a plan for said fitness social event - circuit workout, healthy snack and drink, something to make it fun and more than just a workout. Feel free to let me know if you want a copy sent to you - it would keep me accountable for this goal!
I do have a pretty awesome plan for when I finally do gather up a crew!  It's something!

My DietBet ends at the end of this week.  I need to get down to business!!  I've made my goal of 8lbs for the month, but I need to shave off at least one more to make up for clothing and holding the camera during my final weigh-in....  Fingers crossed!!!

Goals for this week:

1. Make all efforts to STOP late-night snacking!!  If I want a snack at nightI have to fit it in before 8. I will brush my teeth with the kiddo all week to stop food from entering my mouth at that time.  I bought Silk Iced Latte to slowly sip as my dessert after dinner - and that's it!!!

2.  Try again on getting a group together.  Continue to work on organization until I can actually gather the girls.

3.  Meal plan and use up ALL the things I bought at the farmer's market.

By the way... I know there have to be many of you, like myself, who need help every so often. I often have questions, need advice and, occasionally, run into some great tips that work for me that I'd love to share. It'd be great to be able to look for guidance and share helpful hints all in one place, so I will be starting Tips & Tricks Tuesday. Kristin, from Seeing Less of Kristin, has graciously offered to co-host! Once I get the button fixed up to include her, I think we'll see the party pop up next week! Exciting! You are all invited to come and link up old posts you think others would find helpful and link up any posts you have where advice is needed!!

Linking up with these ladies again this week too!


  1. The group thing sounds fantastic!

    1. Thank you so much! It's something I'm super passionate about, but I just haven't been able to get a group together!

  2. Can't wait to start our link-up!

  3. I'm with you on all 3 goals for this week - especially the snacking late at night and using up our farmers market goodies! It's become a Saturday tradition for us - get a good workout in at the gym, and hit up the farmers market before heading home. Sometimes we forget how much we have!

  4. Great idea on brushing your teeth at the same time as your kids to try to stop from snacking at night. I'm definitely going to try it this week!

  5. Love your #1 & #3 goals for this week! I struggle with both of those big time too. I always feel so guilty wasting good produce too :(

    I also love the quote you included.. I think I'm going to print it and put it on the fridge!


  6. I love your goals. I struggle with late night snacking too! Ugh!

    Thanks for linking up!

  7. congrats for keeping up with those easy workout! Good luck with your next goal. It's totally achievable and I want to cheers you for this. Brushing your teeth early in the evening is a great idea to avoid late night snacking. The taste from the toothpaste will makes you feel uncomfortable to eat. And go to sleep early is another good trick.

  8. I love that you set goals for the week! Thanks for linking up with us last week!


I LOVE comments and, don't worry, there are no words to squint at and verify on this blog!! :) So, have at it!
