I am starting a new weekly meme, called Monday Missions. It's basically a list of what I am up to and my goals for the week. I like setting goals for myself, and this seems like a good way to stay accountable. I saw something similar on another blog and decided to make my own version.
I'm also doing a reading/writing version on my author blog.
This week’s weather in Indy is: Cool for July. It's supposed to be in the 70's all week, which means I should get to walk outside a lot. Good news! I find the treadmill boring.
I am traveling: Nowhere. We're home for the week.
Creative projects for the week: Nothing at the moment as far as crafts go. Unless you count me working on my novel writing as making something. I'm making a book I guess.
I am thinking: About joining the new Zumba class our work is sponsoring. It's only $15 for a whole month of classes. We don't have much money, but I can afford $15. This could be something new for my exercise plan.
I am hoping: For some news about the position at work I just applied to. I will be nervous until I get a phone call - good or bad news.
I am looking forward to: Reading the book I started this morning. N.J. Walters is one of my new favorite authors. She writes romance, so you may not like her if that isn't your thing.
I am worried about: Money. Bills are stressing me out.
What I am praying for: An answer on what to do with my career. I'm not sure where God wants me to go, so I am praying for help. More about this later.
I am learning: To be more inventive with the food I cook. With money being tight, the only meat we could afford last week was chicken and hamburger (lean, of course). I am having to get inventive and make up some new meals. I've been searching for cheap and easy recipes lately.
The rest of my week will be: Busy at work, but slow at home. I can deal with that.
Something I would like to do this week: I want to walk the canal downtown at some point. Dad wants to go to, but then it ends up me pushing Dad down the canal. Very tiring, but it could be good exercise I suppose.
Source of inspiration for the week: My Momma. I'm missing her this week, but I am keeping her picture near me at work and at home. I promised her to lose weight, and right now I am breaking that promise.
Household Goal: I would like to start cleaning out the storage room and garage. We'll see. This could be my weekend project.
Fitness Goal: Exercise at least three times this week. I did 5 days last week and was so sore I couldn't move. My knees are still recovering. I think I need to slow down and build up how much I do as I go.
How I am handling stress: Evening walks and reading before bed. Both things clear my head and make me feel better.
