1. Walk at least 500 miles this year (167 down and 333 to go)
We had beautiful weather this week, so I walked all 10 miles outdoors. **On a sad note, while all of this walking is great for my back and health, it is terrible on my pocketbook! I noticed that my tennis shoes are starting to fall apart on the edges and I think I have only had them for a year:(
2. Eat less than 40 net carbs each day
I did this for all 7 days. I also am experimenting with omitting dairy from my diet, so that has been fun….sarcasm intended….
3. Read two non-fiction books each month
Not yet. **I have been reading way too much fiction this month!!
4. Have two date nights each month
One down and one to go. We went out for Italian food last week, but sadly did not get to see our movie because it was only showing in limited theaters around here.
5. Have two family game nights each month
One down and one to go
6. Have one no spend week each month
7. Add twelve new products to my Teachers pay Teachers store this year
I finally added a new product this weekend (that took me entirely too long due to laziness), so now I am going to start working on a study guide for Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. To keep on pace for this goal, I need to add two more products this month…but we will see:)
8. Try to buy nothing “new” this year
I did pretty well this week. I opted to give gift cards as Mother’s Day presents and encouraged my children to make handmade cards for me instead of store bought ones (handmade cards mean so much more to me than store bought cards!)
The only thing I bought, that was considered “new”, would be two new watches for my husband and myself. **My watch band was on its last leg and the time adjuster only worked half of the time, so it desperately needed to be replaced and my husband just wanted a cheap sports watch to time his workouts at the gym better.
9. $5 weekly challenge
This week family sized canned ravioli was on sale at Kroger so I picked up three to add to my food bank stash.
