New Years Mission Update

I figured since we’re two months in to the new year I would give you a mission update. Also, I figured out how to include a hyperlink in my email that I send directly to upload to my blog. Not a mission but YAY me!


Anyways…my missions were as follows:

·         Maintain my weight loss

·         Train for my first 5K in April

·         Keep house in order

·         Read 1 book per month

·         Blog more about meaningful things


So starting with my weight loss. I met my Weight Watchers lifetime goal so I am now a card-carrying lifetime member. I’m pretty stoked about that because it means I no longer have to pay! Woo hoo! So since June I have lost a total of 17 pounds. And while that doesn’t seem like a lot to lost in 8 months, on a 5’1” frame that is quite a bit if I do say so myself! Also…since giving birth to Jacoby in October of 2011 I’ve lost a total of over 50 pounds. That is definitely a lot on a short frame!


I have not trained as much as I should for my 5K but I will be finishing my second week of training on the couch to 5K tonight. You know…it only took me 2 months to do 2 weeks worth but now that the snow is melted I am going to buckle down and run 3 days a week. I got this!


Keeping my house in order is laughable. But I’m trying. My kitchen gets cleaned every night and we’re not leaving dishes setting for a day or two at a time. It’s the little things.


I read one book in January (Mindy Kaling’s ‘Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me) and I finished Sarah’s Key on March 1st so I was so close to my deadline! I’m also about 75% finished with Stephen King’s book 11/22/63 so I will definitely be finished with that one by the end of March. I just joined a book club with a girl I went to high school with. It’s a Facebook only club since she lives in California so we’ll see how it goes. That was why I read Sarah’s Key. It was really sad. And the ending wasn’t really to my liking but that’s neither here nor there. I would recommend it though.


And finally…blogging about more meaningful things. I feel like I’ve done a pretty good job about this. The number of posts have been less but I feel the depth has been better. So that is also accomplished. If you want a recap of my last two months here are the main ones…

And if anyone has any extra money to throw my way I can go on a vacation!


Overall I feel like I’m doing well with my missions. But we’ll see over the course of the next 10 months!

Awesome job on the weight loss! Hey I was wondering if you've ever tried the Simply Filling plan through WW. It intrigues me...although you can't have as much as you want, it seems nice to be able to pretty eat until full without tracking.

Maybe I will try it for a week and see what happens.
