3 Snail-Paced Goals For The Week: Dec 16 to 22


3 snail paced goals for the week I completed all three goals this week

Last Weeks Goals

You can view last weeks goals in full here..

1. I did make tutu skirts with my daughter for our Santa Hustle 5k race.

2.  I did rework 5 posts to make them more pin worthy including

3. I did give the kitchen a deep cleaning.

This weeks goals

1. Deep clean and organize at least one of the 2 bathrooms ( I really want to do both bathrooms but Christmas events are starting to turn from a trickle to a flood so I don’t know if that would be a practical goal, so I am shooting for 1).

2.  Make 5 more posts more pin worthy.

3. Wrap at least half the gifts. I am horrible about putting off wrapping until Christmas Eve and then staying up way to late  wrapping and then the big day is like a whirlwind in a fog. It is so much more relaxing if I have all the gifts wrapped by noon the day before.

All week long I share photos on Instagram so be sure to follow me there.

3 santas 2013I am so proud of my daughter and my son. They have both been training for the Santa Hustle for weeks and finally when the day arrived it was a cold blustery day but both of them braved the cold and my daughter did the 5K with me while my son did 13.1 miles. His first half marathon at the age of 17.

sock mittensHere is a tip I learned form a running book, when it is really cold out keep your hands warm by wearing thermal socks instead of mittens. This keeps all your digits together so they can keep each other warm. It does however make it hard to grasp and eat your after race candy. frozen eyebrowsIn case you didn’t believe me when I said it was cold check out my sons frozen eyelashes and eyebrows.  His face mask also had a frozen spot where he was breathing. Brrr.

3 things tossed this week

Inspired by The Clutter Busting Challenge I decided to toss, sell or give away three things each week and post a picture of it here for accountability.

If you read my  kitchen cleaning update you already saw this picture.  I was so ecstatic that I got  an entire box of things from our kitchen to send to the thrift store plus I gave 3 loaf pans to a fellow church member. Definitely more than three items out of my home this week.

  1. Wow! You guys are awesome. I just started running/jogging this summer but I was so painful when it got cold so I’m taking a break. We aren’t doing many gifts this year, but I should wrap what we have and get it out of the way.

    • For years I use to take a break from running every winter too and do DVD’s in my home (no room for a treadmill). Now I run indoors at our local Y in winter, since my husband gets an amazing discount from his work. I don’t normally brave such cold temperatures, just for the race!

  2. Those Santa outfits are so cute. I hope you had fun. Off to write my goals. : )
