January Goals check in


I got a lot of good stuff done this weekend.  I had a lot of it planned out which I've found is key for me. I scheduled everything from working out to when I had time to set aside to get my kitchen to-do list done.

And I used my crock pot for the first time and the results were delicious.

This week I have a much more positive outlook than last week which was nice.  Sometimes when I get gloomy it's just impossible to snap out of.  But it's just about the middle of the month so I've been taking a look back at my goals.

For my fitness goal I've been ticking off how much I work off.  I'm trying to get in at least 20 minutes of any particular activity.  It was slow to start but I'm making a good dent in biking and walking.

For my organizational goal I got a bunch of kitchen canisters.  I meant to get a kitchen island, one I've wanted since like 2001.  And Ikea has discontinued it.  Cry cry cry, I'm going to have to look for it on Craigslist and whatnot because I WILL have this kitchen island :)

seriously you guys. it's one of my favorite things ever.

Healthy eating, oh gosh I don't even know.  One of my favorite things at Ikea is their lingonberry soda.  It's got to be as sugary as Kool-Aid.  No way is it good for me and I had two full cups of it.  And then Korean bbq for lunch.  Sunday wasn't too much better, although it was just as delicious.  I had grilled cheese and tomato soup at a friend's house for lunch.  So good.  I get spoiled with food, I know it.

So this week I've got to make up for it and step up my working out.  I've got a few healthy meals picked out.  I found this tip on pinterest to sprinkle a little bit of sugar free jello on apple slices for an awesome candy apple treat.  I tried it this morning and it was SO good!! From the looks of it I barely touched the jello so a little goes a long way.  It totally satisfied my craving for something sweet in the morning.

That's enough rambling. I'll pick a topic tomorrow, but today my brain is all over the place so it's only fitting this post is too.

Good luck on finding that kitchen counter/island thingy. I wish you the best of luck. :) I heart IKEA. I try not to go there because I'm a sucker for their cookies with the fruit and chocolate in there...and their $1 ice cream cones....ugh. I hate food. LOL!

Check Ebay too. I found the bench that Ikea discontinued that I fell in love with on there among other discontinued items!

I'm liking the positive attitude! That is a cool looking island and I love all the storage. Good luck finding it.

What flavor of jello did you use on the apples? Sounds tasty.

Have a great week and make mindful choices (that's my goal for this week).

Chubby McGee - oh my gosh for me it's a struggle not to get the cinnamon rolls...they smell so good!!!

Marie - thanks, I've been checking so hopefully it comes up!!

Tammy - thank you!! I used strawberry. For me it's just strawberry everything all the time lol. I bet lemon or lime would actually make for a good combo too!
