I'm going to do something not like me and do things out of order. I haven't had a chance to reflect on week 12 yet - which is about making changes but the week 13 task is easier for me so I'm going to do it first. Now that is a big change for me! Ahhhh, my routine is out of wack! See how far I've come!
In week 6 Deb had us set goals. Now in week 13 we are taking a break to check in on our goals. I've outlined my goals and put an update under each one.
Goal: Reconnect with my current friends
Yes I have been making an effort to talk to a friend on the phone or meet face to face. Still need to continue with this and make sure I do it each week.
Goal: Go to bed by 10.30pm at least 4 nights per week (Sun-Wed, the nights I have to work the next day).
Sometimes, but not 4 nights per week. It's my reading that gets me.
Goal: Walk up the stairs at work once, everyday I'm there.
Yes, I do this everyday I'm at work. Have it as a task in my calendar and it reminds me until I mark it as completed!
Goal: Undertake 3-4 excercise sessions per week (mix of gym and treadmill)
Not so good on this one.
I walk once a week with a colleague at work, but I've not been so good at getting to the gym or going on the treadmill. Averaging about once per week.
Goal: To brush my teeth twice a day and floss each night.
Brushing - yes. Still can't get into flossing regularly.
Goal: To not spend more than we earn so we don't feel stressed about money
Hmmm, just spent over $1800 on electrical appliances (new fridge and washing machine) and hubby bought a new car. So our finances are looking a little sad. But we do plan for a trip to Thailand this year so need to take another look at the budget to save!
Goal: For our house to be free of CHAOS (as fly lady would say - Can't Have Anyone Over Syndrome)
I have a cleaner once a fortnight! Yay, the place is lovely those days!
We are getting better at making the kids put their toys away before getting out new ones. Still room for improvement.
I'm still undertaking the 52 week organised home challenge, although am a little behind due to being sick and birthday planning etc. Need to do 2 weeks worth this week.
I've noticed if the kitchen bench is clean and tidy the whole place just feels nicer. I'm making an effort to have this tidy before I go to bed each night.
Goal: Spend quality time together doing things we enjoy (this is from our mission statement)
We haven't put "family day" into practice yet. Things have been busy - we need to schedule in and make it a priority. I'm aiming for April (after we get through Easter) for our first family day.
We have started family movie night. Friday night's channel 99 (Go) has a kids movie from 6-7.30pm. We record it and start watching it when we are ready (usually 6.30pm) and then as we fast forward the ads it's usually done around 7.30pm. Just in time for the kids to go to bed.
Goal: Focussed time spend with the kids
Yes and no. We read to the kids each night, so spend time with them then. But I want to do more, more games, more fun!
Goal: Nigel and I to spend time together one night a week
Nope we haven't got to this one yet. Still seems technology or my reading is ruling us! We have different interests in TV shows so watch independently and then when Nigel wants to chat I'm busy reading. We must make an effort!
