Treat YoSelf&Plan #1

I am joining a brand new challenge called Treat YoSelf&Plan hosted by Italian Hurricane!  This challenge involves taking a few minutes for yourself every week to a) treat yourself and b) plan and set some goals for the upcoming week.

I don’t have a lot of time for myself with my job, commute and two kids so this challenge is a good thing for me. This past week, I did take some time for myself on Saturday morning. I slept in and relaxed (which for me means spending some time downloading music and perusing the internet). I also made a little splurge at the grocery store: cookie dough swirl klondike bars AND red velvet fudge stripe cookies.

Goals for next week:

  • Get to bed earlier… I have been staying up way too late lately. Starting next week with my new job, I will have to be up and out the door by 6am.
  • Setting aside time every day to write… even if it is just 20-30 minutes. Even if it is just during my lunch half-hour. Even if it is just writing down random thoughts from my commute when I get home from work. I should have been doing this for a while. Many days I just get busy and lazy.
  • Drink more water… in an effort to be healthier
  • Meal plan for lunches… my anxiety has been flaring up my food issues lately. Aside from the splurges mentioned above, I have been restricting food lately and that is not good. I do not want to backslide into that place. So I want to plan good, healthy lunches and snacks to take to work to keep my energy up and improve my  health.

What have you done lately to treat yourself? What are your goals for the upcoming week?

  1. Hmmm those cookies sound yummy!!! Is there any left? 😀
    Good job with your goals, I’ve considered many times a lunch plan because I often get lazy to think of something different to cook for myself and end up eating always the same things… And being vegetarian doesn’t help with this one! 😉
    See you next week! Hugs ❤

    1. The cookies are yummy! I think my kids finished them actually. Ha ha.

      I’m the same way with lunch only I usually wind up skipping it when I get lazy. I’m trying to start good habits 🙂

  2. Good luck with your new job! Writing everyday sounds like a great idea, I may copy that one 🙂 Also, planning lunches and snacks is much better than not – even though its quite hard and time consuming! Good luck 🙂
