Spring Fever Challenge Week Two!!!!

Life's Journey with a Smile

I don't think the Gulf will look much like this but I can hope right???

1. {This will be a weekly question} What have you done this past week to help you achieve your goals?
Well let's see.... I did sort of work toward goal 1 which is to lose 50 to 60lbs. Hubs and I met up with 
our friends last Thursday to finalize the dates for our vacation to the coast which means that I now have 
a goal DATE for getting in shape. We will be vacationing on the beach July 14th thru the 17th. 
All the other goals got absolutely no attention this past week. Now that my hubs is back on days for work
I will be able to go to bed earlier and get up earlier to get in my quiet time, bible reading and workout.

2. {This will also be a weekly question} What did you do this past week to make you feel good about yourself?
I wore my shorts that I bought for this summer on Saturday to an event with alot of people I know from 
church. I know that seems like a "weak feel good" but it's the best I have from this past week. Will be 
better this week.

3. Is your mindset future-oriented or living in the now? How does this impact you when you are working 
towards a goal?
I would say I have equal mind set. I know that there are certain things that must happen today for 
tomorrow. I plan for the future but live in the now.

4. Is there someone in your {real} life that inspires you to strive for the best?
Yes. My Math teacher this semester, Mrs. Main. She is very intelligent and she believes in all of us,
that we can accomplish all we want to, even math and even if it is our 4th time taking the same class.
Maybe that belief in us has to do with her being a mom, all I know is that it has done wonders for me.
My Aunt Susan who passed in 2000 also inspired/inspires me to strive for the best. She wouldn't want any
less for me.

5. Fun Question of the Week: Do you read blogs on the individual websites or via Google Reader?
Google reader, by clicking and then reading the post in another window. I have some that aren't blogspot that I have them booked marked as a Favorite that I read.
Tomorrow I start "the plan"(yes I realize I still need to post about it)! I am excited!


  1. Love that there are teachers like Mrs. Main out there!

    Good luck with this challenge!

  2. Sounds like you've got a great vacation coming up! What great motivation to get healthier!
