How was your weekend? Mine was semi-relaxing, just hanging out with the family, and semi-productive, getting stuff in gear for a few projects. I’m glad it’s monday though because I have about 4 thousand phone calls to make today between 9 and 5.

OK let’s get to it. How did I do last week: 

  • Post to OKDani at least 3 times – Done!
  • Be physically out of my bed before 5:20am each day – Failed! But a good fail, I was out before 7am all but 1 day :)
  • Daily workouts (Piyo and BodyBeast combo) – Done/Failed!! LOL – I am doing Bodybeast and mixing more T25 in so I can lose more belly!
  • Continue with herbal teas (ONLY! no more coffee or lipton w/ milk) – Done!! Can’t believe I quit my stuff cold turkey!)
  • BlogHer’14 prep – Done!! ordered cards, got sched together, etc.
  • Read a book  (this one!!) and do the activities – Done!! It’s really a great book, I’m going to keep referring to it through the month and beyond
  • Do something nice for myself – Done!! I took a lil mommy break and had tea, watched the godfather and chilled while everyone was sleeping
  • Do another faux minimalist clothes overhaul/downsizing – Ummm… Failed
  • Get back on my beachbody and writing grind – Done!! I’ve got a new challenge group scheduled, and as for writing…well…ok I failed that part.

Not too bad!! I have a really big week this week, and heading to BlogHer bright and early Thursday a.m. so I have to shove a lot of ‘to dos’ into 3 days. *gulp*

This week’s goals:

  • Post to OKDani 3+ times

Mind Right Monday


Happy Monday!! How was your weekend? Mine was painful (had bad migraines since thursday) but productive (got a lot of stuff packed up to give away). Yesterday was my first pain-free day, and we went to my mom’s for a nice bbq. I took zero pictures, like a dummy. My dad took 2:

OK Let’s see how I did with last week’s goals: 

  • Start my free 7-day challenge group  - Did it!!
  • Post to OKDani at least 3 times – Failed, sadly.
  • Daily workouts  - I skipped a couple days (and guilt-free at that!)
  • Start planning for BlogHer’14 – Started, I have so much to do!
  • Do something nice for myself – Ummm I painted my nails!
  • Increase water intake – Dit it!! (This also kinda counts as doing something nice for myself, doesn’t it?)
  • Read a book (this one) – Read it, and didn’t like it much at all. Too…diety…versus…lifestyle/way of eating but still going to be pescetarian for a while until I man up and give up fish.


This week I’m going to do much better. I am back home now so I will be trying to get Roey back on his routine here, and deal with Kaya’s ever changing daily routine as I can.

  • Continue with herbal teas (ONLY! no more coffee or lipton w/ milk)
  • BlogHer’14 prep
  • Read a book  (this one!!) and do the activities
  • Do something nice for myself
  • Do another faux minimalist clothes overhaul/downsizing
  • Get back on my beachbody and writing grind


I am extremely grateful for: 

  • Having a great time in Florida
  • My chirrens
  • Working from home
  • John and our marriage
  • My cozy bed
  • Kaya sleeping through the night (well, 9pm to 5am (ish)
