Weekly Wishes #2


It's Monday, again! Is it just me or is time going by so, so fast lately? I'm trying to embrace every second!

Last week was my first week doing the Weekly Wishes and I'm excited to say I met a lot of my goals:

1// Figure out this anxiety thing. I am feeling pretty great, although there were a few days of random grogginess. I know that the medicine won't truly be in my system for 6 weeks, but I also feel less anxiety because we have things planned out.

2// Clean our bedroom. Oh em gee we did it!

3// Put fresh flowers in our dining room and light candles. I love the candles!!

4// Go to yoga three times, and attempt the gym once. I didn't end up making enough in tips to pay for the yoga classes. Jess and I went to a free yoga class on Saturday though!

This week's goals are: 

1// Get a solid plan for teaching next year. I want to figure out what school I will be at, my hours, if I should decide to do year-round pay, what time I should leave for work and how to incorporate blogging. 

2// Seriously, yoga and gym! 

3// Take a day and just be. Today, I am supposed to be realaxing with my cousin and on Thursday we are seeing Eminem and Rihanna. I want to just BE in the moments of these things. 

4// Schedule all of my blog posts! This will keep my anxiety low! :)

I don't want to have too many goals, since I sort of have a busy week. I have a lot of pre-planned things and work, which stresses me out about my working from home stuff.  I need to be extra diligent this week!

  1. Love seeing crossed out items on a to-do list! You are doing great and hope you're having a great start to the month! <3

  2. I suffer from anxiety, too. It took my doctor several attempts to get my dosage right. The perfect dosage will give you minimal side affects. I love fresh flowers, too. Our local farmer's market sells them for so cheap. I am always picking up a couple of bouquets.

  3. I love the idea of taking a day to just be. I think I need to jump on that bandwagon!

  4. Sounds like a great plan for yourself for the week ahead. Just take it one step at a time! It always feels good to check something off of the list :)

  8. Scheduling blog posts is an awesome feature, is it not? Man, I love it too - I feel so much more accomplished when I have a set number of posts ready to go live.

  9. I actually don't have a weekly goals. But I do know that I have to find a job haha.

    ReplyDelete
  10. What kind of medication are you taking for anxiety? That's so fun that you guys live close to each other and do yoga together. Good luck on your weekly wishes! :)

  11. Scheduling blog posts is such a good way to keep that off your shoulders. I always feel amazing when I've done so, because I don't have to create content mid-week.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Scheduling blog posts really can eliminate so much stress. It helps to not have those posts hanging over your head.

    ReplyDelete
  13. eeeekkk I am going to the same concert on Thursday. I cant wait. I sooooo need to start doing yoga more often and maybe take up running again. A great way to relax and get my mind clear. Wonderful post!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. This is such a good idea! Small/short term goals help you get stuff done. Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I wish I would schedule my blog posts ahead of time too - it really would make life easier :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. I have semi scheduled my posts. I have titles written out in my planner

    ReplyDelete
  17. It's always a pleasure to meet a fellow goal setter. We started cleaning out our garage this weekend and brought in a lot of things we hadn't unpacked since we moved. My goal is to make sure that they all find a home, instead of holding residence on my stairs.

  18. Look at you go, I'm definitely jealous that you're able to stick to your goals so well. That's definitely something super admirable that I absolutely cannot do...Scheduling posts is a total lifesaver!

    I love setting goals for myself too. Problem is I often forget them or just don't have enough time to do them. Gotta change that!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Good luck girl! I always try to schedule ahead and it never really works out haha.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Excellent goals and great job meeting most of last weeks. I need to do this too. Great job n cleaning the room especially. I know for me that would be the hardest to do because I would really not want to do it lol.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I am so excited to get to a normalized state! Right now I have some weird-ish side effects (or they're just me reading into things). But I know I will get there with my anxiety med! Thank you for your advice!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yes! It is going to be a wonderful day!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. yess! Iman really wanted to go and would you believe we have never been to a concert together?? So crazy since I love them so much. I LOVE old Eminem!! Yes! Yoga is amazing

    ReplyDelete
  25. Ugh cleaning!!! Lol, I have to figure it out, if I go to year round pay, my paychecks might be lower versus setting aside a set amount of my own for the weeks that I would be without pay. Yes! I need to force myself to the gym!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thank you so much! I am so excited!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I agree! I have my posts for tomorrow and Wednesday scheduled and the other two planned out!! woo hoo!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Thank you so much! Ah! That is so awesome that you will be there too. I hear parking will be crazy! Definitely need to relax and clear my mind through working out!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Sometimes it takes a REALLY motivated or inspired day for me and then I get a week ahead and then fizzle out for that week, lol

    ReplyDelete
  32. I love / hate goals like that!! You can do it!! I can't wait for our boxes to be unpacked, but we're missing a book shelf. so I still have some boxes

    ReplyDelete
  33. I think it is important to set little goals (even reallly little goals) so I can feel successful and motivated!

    ReplyDelete
  34. That usually happens to me! I'm trying to set smaller goals!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Thanks!! haha, yeah I always get a little ahead and then behind

    ReplyDelete
  36. I definitely hate cleaning our bedroom but I feel so good that it is clean now! The rest of our house is clean as well, with a few things stacked around because we need a bookshelf. I am hoping it lasts longer than a week!!

    ReplyDelete
