Six weeks feels like a milestone for some reason. So, I looked it up and found out this:
1) New Years resolutions start to fail around week 6
2) Girl Scout Cookies start to be sold.
Coincidence? Maybe not. It might be a “phase 2 challenge” the Girl Scouts decided to introduce so those who try to lose weight as a NY resolution are challenged to find out just how really serious they are about their new found goal. Those cookies do seem to being shouting “just one!” at people. “It’s for a good cause!” Sneaky!
Well, here’s how serious I was regarding week 6 in 2013:
4 miles. Yes, that was all. Just 4 miles. I have some excuses though (I’m sure those munching on Girl Scout cookies do to): I came down with a cold last Tuesday. It was inevitable: Ping came home with it a week prior, then Erin started a few days before me. It was bound to happen. Normally, I’ll run through a case of “the sniffles, ” but I felt like this was a little more serious than that….my body just felt tired. By the end of the week, I was feeling a little better, but then… Nemo happened! Yeah, a foot of snow and high winds don’t make for a good 10 mile run. I’m back at it this week though!
1) Have a business plan in place by June.
I haven’t really focused on this at all this week. It’s okay though….You see, I read a chapter in a book for my bible study about “slowing down” in life. I’m not panicking about this.
Mommy & Housewife:
1) Organize one thing in the house each week for a year.
My omnigrid ruler and cutting mat have been stowed on the floor against the wall for the past few weeks. I have a section of wall in our bedroom that would be perfect for a peg board to organize all my craft and sewing supplies. I found some peg board on Amazon and put it on my wishlist for my birthday. Yesterday, I put a nail in the wall and hung my cutting mat and omnigrid ruler up. 🙂
2) Clean at least one thing in our home each day.
The In-laws arrived yesterday….let’s just say my house is spotless. 🙂
3) Finish cross stitching all of our darn stockings!
I only have the bordering to go on the hubby’s stocking! Then it’s on to Erin’s! I’m so excited about this!
What were your 6 week excuses? Only 46 more weeks to go!
