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:

Hi Monday Friends!

This weekend was packed! I took a bread making class with my sister. Cooper had travel baseball. We had a family dinner. I didn’t catch up on sleep. In fact, I woke up earlier this weekend than I do on weekdays. My kitchen is a mess and we have a bunch of unpacking to do.

It’s Monday morning and I am sitting here typing this up instead of my Sunday night ritual. It’s cool. I know that mapping out my week with my intentions will help get my head in the game. So, here we are. Me typing them up on the internet to hold myself accountable. Cuz there’s not a chance my brain is going to abandon this ritual right now.  The accountability of the internet holds me to my actions.  Here are my Intentions for the Week:

    That seems like a very busy week to me – and your mantra fits perfectly! Wishing you good luck!
    Yesterday, I wrote my intentions down in my bullet journal and I borrowed your idea of habit trackers for yoga/workout 🙂 Thanks for the inspiration.

  • Ashley

    We are watching season 2 of Ozark and keep sneaking in an extra episode (or 2) more than we should at night. I’m worried for Ruth…

  • Madeleine

    You’ve probably thought of this but have you ever tried putting sliced strawberries in your water? I fill up my giant to-go cup w/strawberry water and it helps. 🙂 got the idea from the catering at my work
