5 for Five!

It's time to link up with Jenn and Jessica for this week's 5 for Five!

I love Stephanie's idea over at And Baby Makes 10 to color code each week's list, so I'm going to do the same.

Green means that I 100% accomplished my goal.
Yellow means that I was pretty close to getting there but was just shy of my goal.
Red means that I did not accomplish my goal. all.

Last Week's Goals:

1) Drink at least 8 cups of water a day.

I rocked this. I love water, I just literally forget to drink it sometimes. I fixed that issue by keeping a water bottle close by all day long. I'm pretty sure I drank close to 10 or 11 cups of water each day this week!

2) Create a list of healthy meal ideas that both Jeremy & I will eat, and cook at least 3 of them this week.

I didn't finish the list, but I cooked a healthy meal every day this week except for Friday, which is our pizza night.

3) Spend less than $100 this week on groceries, gas, and any other daily purchases.

Nope, not even close. We went to the grocery as a family Monday night and spend $110 (why is it that taking your husband to the grocery can almost double your grocery bill??) and then I put $30 in gas in my car this week. I didn't spend any other money though!

4) Spend 15 minutes doing arm and ab workouts while staying under my calorie goal each day this week.

I stayed under my calories goal every single day this week, including the weekends! However, I slacked a couple of days when it came to my workouts.

5) Deep clean and sterilize Henry's toys.

It took me an entire four hours of bleaching and scrubbing and rinsing and drying, but every single one of Henry's toys are now clean and sterilized!

This Week's Goals:

1.) Walk for 30 minutes at least 3 times this week; my ankle is feeling a LOT better and I know I can do this.

2.) Shampoo the bedroom carpets. Puke, I hate shampooing carpets but it needs done badly.

3.) Go on a date with Jeremy!

4.) Continue to log and be under my calorie limit each day this week while drinking at least 8 cups of water daily.

5.) Do something special for my Little Bit, whether that be us going out or doing fun new activities around the house!


  1. You did good!!! :) Have a great day!

  2. I need to clean all of Marcus' toys. It just seems so daunting. Blah.
    This weekend we steam cleaned our carpets. The filth! It was absolutely disgusting. It's obvious we should probably do that a bit more often.
    Keep up on the walking, you're doing great!

  3. I need to drink more water! You have inspired me!! :)

  4. Your pictures are great! I'm new to the whole "following blogs" thing but I am definitely going to follow yours. Check mine out if you get a chance! Thanks!


You don't know just how lovely you are...thank you.
