5 for Five #2

How in the world is it Monday already?!?  
Yes, I know put me on repeat, I say this every Monday, but seriously  the weekends always go by wayyyyy too fast!!

Time to link up for my second 5 for Five!
Thanks to Jenn and Jessica for this fabulous link up!!

Here were the goals I set for last Monday.  What I highlight in green I accomplished, what I highlight in red, is a failure.  :(   This is going to be embarrassing....

  1. Make dinner every single night this work week!  That's Monday through Friday!!  I think I can.  I made sure to make a list of what I actually need at the grocery store to make sure I am successful for this challenge this week.  With last week being so busy meeting up with people after work and running errands, unfortunently, dinner was only made on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.  I blame Andy for Thursday.  I had the crock pot meal made for him, he just needed to put it in the warmer to cook and he forgot.  Oh well.....he tried.  Still love him.
  2. Eat vegetables with at least every dinner I make.  This was accomplished with meals on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.  Tuesday I made Chili and wasn't too hungry so I skipped on the veggies and just ate Chili. 
  3. Walk my goal of 10,000 steps everyday this week  I am going to tweek this goal, I worked out hard on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  Tuesday and Thursday were "rest" days, so my goal of 10,000 steps were not met.  BUT, I worked out the most I had in a long time, so that's a plus!!
  4. Paint my finger and toe nails to Christmas colors!  (I finally took the orange off on Friday, just never got the repainted completed)  No excuses here....just didn't get to it.
  5. Finish Christmas shopping  This was finished on Saturday!!

December 10-14th Goals
  1. Mail out Christmas Cards, these should be in this week.
  2. Wrap all Christmas presents and put under the tree.  Post a photo on my blog :)
  3. Make dinner every single night this work week.  I am determined to make this goal this week!
  4. Get those nails painted to be festive!!
  5. Start Couch to 5K!
    1. Monday - 5 minute warm up walk, Alternate 60 seconds of jogging and 90 seconds of walking.  5 minute cool down walk.
    2. Wednesday - 5 minute warm up walk, Alternate 60 seconds of jogging and 90 seconds of walking.  5 minute cool down walk.
    3. Friday - 5 minute warm up walk, Alternate 60 seconds of jogging and 90 seconds of walking.  5 minute cool down walk.

Come back next Monday to see how I did!

I really need to get back into C25K. I always get through the first 3 weeks and love it, then stop.
