Intentions for the Week

Looking to get your head in the game? Tracy from Shutterbean makes a weekly TO DO LIST called her Intentions for the Week. Here's what this week looks like:


Back in the mix! Last week my Intentions were to hang out with my family, relax, charge my battery and get some work done while I was on our Spring break. You can see more of the week in Pacific Grove here.

Cooper and Casey were gone this weekend for baseball so I unpacked all of our bags and completed laundry! WE ARE FINALLY AT GROUND ZERO WITH LAUNDRY. It’s been months since I’ve been able to say that!!!  We had company over right before we left so there was some extra cleaning up to do. I’m hoping this momentum will carry into the new week. Ok, let’s see what my Intentions for the week are….

Intentions for the Week:

  • work out/figure out gym membership
  • do yoga/go for a walk
  • try to work my Fitbit back into the routine

    Hi Tracy,
    I’ve been on vacation too last week an am now getting back into the routine with work and school.

    My intentions are:
    – laundry!
    – plan a birthday party for an 8-year-old
    – hopefully conclude work project
    – consider any sort of work-out – yoga? running? something completely different I haven’t done yet? I need to move!

    Have a good week! Sina

    Oh, and congrats on the laundry situation! I’m so impressed – zero laundry hasn’t happened here in months…

    Some advice that helped me find the right gym. Find one that’s either close to your office or home. This won’t make it a chore to get there. Second piece of advice comes from Terry Crews: treat it like a spa. Use up all the free products! Hang out in the sauna/steam room for an hour! Lounge around in your towel with a sheet mask and read a book in the locker room! It sounds frivolous, but make the gym a TREAT. It will help you get there…the hardest part when you’re creating a new routine. Our bodies do a lot, so they deserve it!

    Schedule dentist appointment, plant zinnias (!!), sew something, work out 2x, organize kitchen cabinets since all of it is currently falling on me whenever I open a door, which is when I know things have gotten really bad. haha.

    • Tracy

      good luck with the cabinets! you’re going to feel so much better without that situation in your life!
