    Morning Tracy!
    I love these posts. They keep me motivated to make weekly intentions too.
    As for a watering can, i like the Beherns steel ones from Amazon. They come in different sizes and the sprinkle head is removable. Plus, they look really cool as they age.

    – Start training our new puppy!
    – Meal prep

    + stick to half marathon training schedule (3 runs this week)
    + buy a wedding shower gift for my cousin’s fiancee
    + make a specialist dentist appt
    + bring healthy lunch + coffee to work instead of buying

    I’m finally doing this. I’ve been admiring your Intentions posts for a while now, and I just created a Google Doc for myself to start tracking a few things. I just spoke to a life coach through my doctor’s office and she helped me set goals for the week, so I’m going to try keeping a running list. Thanks Tracy for the inspiration! <3
