Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

Spring Fever Challenge
Life's Journey with a Smile

Question One: What have you done this past week to help you achieve
your goals?
1. I continue to eat more fruit. I eat at least one piece a day, but usually more.
2. I have been keeping on track with the c25k program. I am starting week 3.
3. I am drinking 1 liter of water a day...and drinking less coke. I have been down to just one a day.
4. I am remembering to take my vitamins each day.
5. I am also getting lots of rest. One night this week, I was asleep at 8 and another night at 9.
6. So about that saving money goal...I have not been too good this week. I went to TJ Maxx this week and racked up. Oopsie. I have got to stay out of that store. I am planning on doing a post all by itself sometime this week about my budget and my plan to spend less money. Be on the look out for it.

Question 2: What did you do this past week to make you feel good about yourself?
I bought a bath pillow which makes my baths so much more pleasurable. I hate putting my neck against the cold tub. I spent a lot of time outside this past week. It makes me so happy to have warmer weather.
I also had a nice, relaxing weekend around my cottage. This was much needed, and very enjoyable.
I also spent Friday night watching Tangled with the kids. It was precious!! I highly recommend it.

Question 3: Is your mindset future-oriented or living in the now? How does this impact you when you are working towards a goal?
A little bit of both. My big motivator for me right now, besides you guys of course, is the fact that I will be living in a swimsuit for 3 months while I am in the Bahamas. I want to be comfortable and enjoy being in my own skin. On the other hand, I want these goals to become a part of my life for the long run. I want to continue these goals until they become a part of my every day life and then make new ones that will challenge me to be even healthier.

Question 4: Is there someone in your {real} life that inspires you to strive for the best?
Lots of people inspire me, but my current boss plays a big part in all of this. She has 4 kids, rarely works out, and is in better shape then I have probably ever been in. She eats very healthy, drinks a lot of water, and stays active. I am hoping her habits rub off on me more and more.

Question 5: Do you read blogs on the individual websites or via Google Reader?
Individual websites.

Happy Mingling!!!
