1. Walk at least 500 miles this year (114 miles down and 386 to go)
We had a beautiful week this week so I actually walked all of my miles outside and my kids even joined me for a few of those…without whining:)
2. Eat less than 40 net carbs each day (I did this for all seven days)
It is so nice to have an occasional bowl of oatmeal again! **Strangely enough, I stayed way below 40 carbs for most of the week…old habits die hard.
Read two non-fiction books each month Accomplished
I decided to read a book that has been on my shelf for awhile now called The Catechist’s Toolbox by Joe Paprocki. It is full of great ideas on how to make religious education both fun and rewarding for both the student and the teacher. About this time each year, I start to get a little burnt out teaching my Sunday school class, so this was a really refreshing book to spark a little fire into my class planning for the week. **I always try to take notes when I read an instructional/inspirational book because otherwise I totally forget all of the “ah-ha” moments I had while reading the book.
4. Have two family game nights each month
We only had one official game night in March, but we did play games and go to the park a lot, so no one was neglected:)
5. Have two date nights each month
We only had one date night in March, but hopefully we will get back on track in April.
6. Add twelve new products to my Teacher Pay Teacher store this year
I am still working on the first grade science packet from last week (which is taking longer than I thought it would) so I need to step it up!
7. Buy nothing new this week
Nothing new was bought. I did find some cute Easter clothes for my kids at the thrift store this week. It is always hit or miss when it comes to used clothing (especially for teenage girls) but they both liked the items I picked out, so that was a relief:)
Have one no spend week each month Accomplished
9. $5 weekly challenge
This week I added pancake mix and syrup to my food bank stash. **I am always amazed at how much $5 a week can buy for charity.
