Weekly Wishes #3



Well it's Monday and I've got big goals for myself this week! I noticed yesterday that overall I'm feeling more calm and more intentional. I keep just taking time to just relax and do things instead of freaking out and frantically doing things and then spending time lethargic because I'm so stressed. Could this be the Prozac? Let's hope so! School starts in 2 weeks, so let's see where I am with my progress! 

1// Get a solid plan for teaching next year. Check! I know which schools I'm at, what times they start and end and I'm figuring out traffic this week!

2// Seriously, yoga and gym! Well, this was a fail since I couldn't breathe or stand most of the week. #SickGirlProblems

3// Take a day and just be. Ahh, this was so wonderful and I must do it again!!

4// Schedule all of my blog posts! I got most of them scheduled! The only day I missed was Friday because of the concert. 

The Nectar Collective


1// Start waking up earlier. I'm horrible at waking up early and on time. In 2 weeks I will have to start leaving for work at 5am again, so I should probably learn to wake up before 9.

2// Send the letters I've been meaning to send. I hve been so horrible at this! We need to finish our thank you cards, too.

3// Finish changing my name I just need to do all of my banks, credit and utility companies! 

4// Go shopping for some new bras. The girls need some fresh support for the school year!

5// Be there for my cousin as she has her baby!! I just woke up from a dream that she had her baby. I can't wait to meet my new little.

  5. I hear ya on the waking up early. I'm horrible at it, but I need to start being better about it! My goal for the next two weeks is to start waking up 15 minutes earlier every day, and wake up by 8 am by August 25. Good luck, girl!

  7. I really like this idea, seems like a lot of fun to track the things you want to accomplish. And I can't believe you leave for work at 5 am! That is so stinking early!!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Yeah, about those thank you cards...I didn't finish sending all of them. fail. I wish you more willpower than I did when I got married! Congratulations on getting married and good luck with your goals this week! The gym goal kicks my butt also, so don't feel too bad. I'm sure you'll accomplish that when you're feeling better :-)

  10. Such exciting things going on for you at the moment! I really want to try and schedule all of my blog posts too, I'm so useless at that! I managed it once for one week, then gave up the next week. I was so annoyed with myself! And I really need to get myself some new underwear. Mine have holes all the way through... and NOT in the sexy way!

    I thinking being at work anytime before nine is overrated, yet I do it every day. Good luck, the snooze button is my enemy. Thanks for reminding me of bra shopping- yuck!

    ReplyDelete

  15. Waking up early is the death of me after taking a break from it! I need to find a really good alarm app to help me through those mornings!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I sooo cannot wake up early which is really bad as I actually have to be for work! Goodluck with your goals this week!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Can I wish for some of that Ben & Jerry's ice cream? Hahah I love reading weekly wishes posts. It encourages me to set my own wishes/goals.

    ReplyDelete
  18. There's a word for when you have a hard time getting out of bed/waking up early. I think it's dysania. I definitely experience that feeling!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Dang, I love the catch phrase of the weekly wishes! I hear you on trying to start getting used to waking up early. Bleh. I need to do that too, but why does the world insist on having me wake up so dang early!? I do have a thank you card I've had written and addressed for 3 1/2 months waiting for me to put a stamp on it (they're right next to the envelope) and put it in the mail box. I'll get it done. Now I can cross it off my list too.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Congratulations on last week's wishes, and good luck with the upcoming week! I am definitely with you on the waking up early - I really need to get on that!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  22. thank you! I definitely think it is :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. haha, yess, I have to be in LA by 730 or 8 and it usually means I am late if I leave after 6am. So i just leave early and then blog. hahaha

    ReplyDelete
  24. I seriously agree, waking up early really gets so much done! unfortunately, I am a night person/insomniac. But, when I work I start at 730 or 8, in LA, which is about a 2 hour drive in Traffic, so that is why I have to wake up so early!

    ReplyDelete
  25. thank you!! My goal is half hour earlier for a day or two and then move down again. BUT usually, I work better by just not sleeping more than 2 hours one night and then being exhausted the next night. Soooo we will see what happens. Of course, my husband and our roomate decided I needed to be drunk tonight.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Thank you!! good luck with waking up early yourself!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Thank you!! Good luck!! It is really the worst. And I have an insomnia problem.

    ReplyDelete
  32. ugh, I seriously agree! technically, I don't have to be there until 8, but traffic sucks so bad going from OC to LA! Bra shopping is sort of exciting, sort of sucking

    ReplyDelete

  65. Fab goals! And so achievable.. I'd really struggle with the 'do nothing' day and chilling, but its actually so important. I'm really rubbish at getting up earlier too.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Congratulations on meeting most of your goals for last week! I don't blame you for not getting to the gym - you have a valid reason!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I need to do bigger goals. I do daily, but I totally sucked on my monthly! A weekly makes it so much more comfortable!

    I need to start writing my goals down. I think them, but then a month later realize I didn't go back to them

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  70. Thank you! I definitely couldn't take the whole day and do nothing - but I was sure to live in the moment throughout the day!!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Do you go to bed late because of your kids? It's pretty difficult for me to go to bed before midnight. I am attempting to wake up earlier, but failing. What will most likely happen is that I will stay up most of the night the Sunday before work and then be exhausted on Monday night.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Yes, get right in the middle!!! I need to set up and stick with my biggera nd smaller goals too

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  75. We shopped for bras!!! HORRAAAYYYY hahaha
