Goal Update for Week 5

1. Walk 500 miles this year

I walked 10 miles this week so I am up to 42 miles for the year and only 458 to go!

2. Eat less than 30 net carbs

I did this for 6 out of 7 days.  I also have been posting some of my favorite low carb recipes each week, so check those out for ideas if your meal repertoire is getting boring.

3. Add twelve new products to my Teachers pay Teachers store

One down and eleven to go.

4. Have two date nights a month.

Not yet.

5. Have two family game nights a month.

We will be having one this week hopefully.

6. Read at least two non-fiction books a month

The Book of Joy: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World

I just finished The Book of Joy….it was so awesome! These are probably two of the most enlightened people on Earth at this moment and they have so much wisdom to share.  I love all of the personal stories they share, as well as, all of their insights as to what brings the most happiness into your life.  My family has been a little tired of me talking about this book, but it is a definite must read, especially if you feel you are lacking a spark in your life and hope to have a glimpse of the bigger picture.  **The Dalai Lama is Buddhist and Desmond Tutu is Christian but they do not push either of their faiths on each other or others, they simply share how their faiths have led them to happiness.  It was really beautiful:)

7. Buy nothing new

Nothing new was bought this week except for food of course!

8. Have one no spend week a month

I am in the middle of my no spend week right now.  I decided to have it during the first week of my Frugal February challenge, because my pantry is well stocked and I thought it might get me into the right mindset for the month. **I do have $25 to spend on random food items that I need for the week, but nothing else is allowed

9. $5 Weekly Challenge


I had coupons for some Kroger brand breakfast items so I got all of these items to donate to the local food bank for just $5.
