Weekly Wishes #1

A few weeks ago, I came up with a fairly lofty list of goals for 2014. I figured the best way to eat an elephant is one bite at a time, so coming up with some smaller weekly goals should really help me achieve my bigger goals for the year, right?

And, it just so happens that there is an awesome link-up called “Weekly Wishes” hosted by The Nectar Collective for people to talk about what they want to accomplish each week. Lots of great blogs with great weekly goals – you should check it out!

My goals for this week

1) Drink at least twice as much water as pop each day. That means if I’m drink 20 oz of pop throughout the day, I need to also drink 40 oz of water as well. I want to cut down on my pop consumption, but I know going cold turkey doesn’t work for me, so hopefully this will help.

2) Pick back up my 365 Days of Greyhounds photo project. I fell off the bandwagon and am
kicking myself.

3) Comment on an average of at least five blogs a day.

4) Spend quality time with at least one, if not two friends this week. Reach out to at least one friend daily via text message. (AKA – don’t get so sucked into blogging/trip planning/message boards that you’re ignoring everyone else.)

5) Strive to eat a healthier breakfast every morning (I’m currently eating three granola bars for breakfast. Don’t look at me like that, I KNOW!)

6) Reasonable bedtime this week. I’ve scrambled into bed near midnight way too often lately.

What are your goals for the week?

    I’m also trying to cut down pop! But more like I need to save up money because I’m a budget college student hahaha. Good luck!

      I didn’t drink pop for a little over a year when I was in college because I was trying to save the equivalent amount of money that said pop had cost me for a root canal!

    I am 100% with you on the soda thing! I’m trying to quit drinking it altogether but I’m not quite that strong! Good luck! πŸ™‚

    Cutting out soda can be really hard but you can do it! I had to soda out because I was getting migraines. It was hard at first but after awhile, you don’t even remember that soda exists. I would bypass the soda aisle at the grocery store and not even have soda in the house. At restaurants just order water with lemon. That’s what I always do. It’s so much healthier and then you aren’t ingesting all those yucky additives. πŸ™‚

    Goal #1 for the week: Sit down and write some goals. (First things first, right!)
    Oh, and I could certainly increase my water intake. Thanks for sharing!

      Yeah, I’m noticing all of my goals for the year conflict a little now that I’m getting into them. If I want t blog more, then I read less. If I spend time reading OR blogging, I’m not spending time with my family and friends. GAH!!!

      Part of my good breakfast intentions is also cost and I can eat a granola bar for about 1/5 of the price of a yogurt, so ehhhhh… I have added a yogurt in as an afternoon snack as opposed to all of the junk I eat at work. Unfortunately, I’m now eating all the junk PLUS a yogurt! Tricky tricky.
