Intentions for the Week:

Intentions for the Week - May 1, 2017 on

It’s Monday! It’s a new month. HELLO, MAY!! How are we feeling about May?  I like that the first day of the month is on a Monday. Doesn’t seem like that happens often enough.

Today I am going to be getting my brain in the game for May by working on my Intentions for the Week. I can’t believe we are almost halfway through the year. WHERE DOES THE TIME GO????!!!

I have to finish drawing up my April spread in my bullet journal and then I’ll be able to post my April currently post.  All of the traveling in April threw off my schedule (in a good way!), so I am working hard to get myself back on track/catch up. Stay tuned for that.

Let’s see what’s in store for this week…..

    Love reading everyone’s lists!
    -Brainstorm ways to stop spending all my money at the Whole Foods salad bar
    -Create a meal plan template (Salad Mondays, Taco Tuesdays, etc.) so I don’t feel like I’m starting at meal planning square one every week
    -Make some rules regarding reintroduction post-Whole30 (I’m down 10 lbs and scared to gain back if I reintroduce..)
    -Walk a minimum of 4 times
    -Go to Master Gardener sale and buy lots of plants!
    -Do something thoughtful for T

    • Tracy

      here’s a way:
      don’t get the cucumbers. they cut them super big so that it weighs down your salad. think about the weight of things and then work the system!!
      def make some reintro rules. GO SLOW!!!
