Weekly Wishes #12

- Run 8 miles -

What a completely crazy week it was! It was so busy, I could hardly keep my head from spinning. I actually enjoy keeping busy though. It was also a very freeing week! I let go of a lot of things that were weighing on my shoulders and it felt so good to just trust in God and know that the path I am on is the right one.

But at the same time, I can't say that the week was completely chaos free. I managed to lose my keys and have yet to find them. Not just one key, but an entire ring of keys. We won't go into where I suspect they might be, but I will say that I spent Sunday, and a good amount of money, changing locks on everything, if that tells you anything. I could have called a locksmith for help, but instead I called my Dad. Same difference, right?

Clean out the file cabinets. Two full bags of trash, gone!

Run 8 miles.  Yay! 

Read one chapter. Thumbs down!

Deep clean my bedroom. I got out a lot of unnecessary things and even cleaned out the closet. The only thing I didn't get to was under the bed, but it's not really needed because I cleaned it out last year and haven't been under there since. I would like to get rid of a few things under there rather than store them there any longer though. 

Make a fitness tank.  I brainstormed this one a lot but never actually got to the making process. 

this weeks wishes

Declutter. I do this about once or twice a year and have already started getting rid of things already, so I want to keep going with this one. 

Run 8 miles. This was a great goal last week that I was able to accomplish. 8 miles is the right amount for me without feeling like I am pushing too hard to reach a goal. 

Read one chapter. This will stay here until I decide I am tired of feeling like a complete failure and actually read the book. 

Drop off some donations at our church. Since I will be decluttering, I might as well drop them off at church this Sunday! I used to waste so much time selling stuff online, but then realized the money I was making off of all the small things just wasn't worth the time I was putting into doing it. Plus, it's much more fulfilling to provide for someone in need. 

Make a fitness tank. Let's try this one again. I honestly don't think I am going to have time for this but at least when it is on my list, I am a little more mindful about it than completely letting it slip into that part of my brain that ideas never return from. I have been wanting some fitness tank tops with cute sayings on them so I decided I would totally make some for myself. It's been a bit since I have done anything crafty, so I am excited about this one! 

Practice letters and numbers with Elijah. He will be heading off to Kindergarten in the Fall and it's time to get on the ball. He is so hard to work with when teaching him because he is so uninterested most of the time. I have to use a little creativity to find things he enjoys and throw an educational twist on them. 

March wishes

Start advertising for Spring photo sessions. It's that time. I am really expanding my photography this year and people love Spring and Fall photos the most. Therefor, I am hoping to be busy with them quite a bit this Spring. 

Track my miles ran. A friend of mine is tracking her miles every month and I liked it so much, I decided to join her. My goal is 32 miles in March!  

Read one book. I read zero books in February! Go me! 

Start preparing my Spring and Summer container garden. I have had a garden for years now, but the last couple of years I have had my vegetables in containers and it has been the best way for me. 

Clear off our porch. I would love to find some new patio furniture as well. We spend a lot of time outside in the Spring and Summer and I really want the space to be more inviting. 

February Monthly Wishes that I accomplished: Updated the Advertising and About me pages of my blog, purchased a treadmill, went on a date with Jason, and stepped out of my comfort zone by sharing my current body in a Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise post.
