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:

Intentions for the Week- Week 3 of 2020. Here’s what week 3 looked like last year.

Happy Monday, friends!

This weekend we had family over. I made tacos. We played with sparklers.

Everyone was drinking but me.

It was cool though, I drank a lot of lemon ginger elixirs and spent pockets of time getting rid of things and organizing around the house.  Our Christmas tree is down and I have to move the ornament boxes out.  Lots of in-between projects in the works.

Last week I sent out a lot of packages and it’s amazing how easily my office gets thrashed in the process.  I have a few piles on the floor of my office I’d like to get rid of this week and I am typing this here so I have you as my witness. I WILL DO IT, DANG IT. 

Pretty happy to report that I did meal prep this week!  I also accomplished my goal to work out three days last week and tracked what I ate all week in my food journal.  HOORAY.

I like the momentum I am building. It’s all about creating healthy habits, huh?
