5 For Five week 3

I'm linking up with Jessica and Jenn for 5 for Five today! Join in the fun!
Link up with us at the start of the work week to set five goals that you want to accomplish in the next five days!! 


Green are things I accomplished and the ones in red are the ones I didn't do- opps!

Last week's goals:
1. Work out 2 times this week (let's see if a that makes a difference) No excuses here :(
2. Figure out my after school plans for the rest of the year
3. Deep clean my apartment before The Boy gets here Thursday!! :) (Hopefully I can find the time to do this!) I did this Friday after school as he was cooking, so I'll take it! :)
4. Don't buy ONE thing this week. (Except for my ONE Starbucks drink!)---Yes, that even means going into Target without getting anything-ahh!!!! This will be hard! Went to Target. I had to get a coworker a present.
5. Pick out my outfits for the next day, the night before. (When I do this, I notice I save like 15 minutes in the morning. That is 15 minutes that I can eat my breakfast at the table, rather than in the car, as I'm driving---I know that's not good, but I have no other time) Yes!! I did this and will be continuing it this week.

This week's goals:
1. Figure out my after school plans this year
2. Do not buy ONE thing this week---I really want to accomplish this!
3. I want to start reading a new book. That is one thing I miss the most- I just never have time :(
4. Make meal plans for the next 2 weeks (trying to use everything in my refrigerator and pantry)
5. Be confrontational when it's necessary. 

I'm hoping this week won't be too stressful. I'm already counting down to Thanksgiving break---22 days!!!


  1. Target gets me every time!! Check out my blog post today - I nominated you for an award! :)

  2. I wouldn't have been able to do #4! I think that getting someone else a present though isn't TOO bad! I think you did a great job! I'm impressed you deep cleaned your apartment- that would have been the hardest part for me!

    I really, really like the idea of not buying anything for a whole week, I think that it might be something I need to challenge myself to do soon!

    Great ideas and goals for this week- I know you can do it!

    I'm with you- I'm counting down to Thanksgiving too ;)

  3. This is a fun little link up. I love it when I make time for reading. I'm reading the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series right now. It's easy enough that I don't have to really think while I am reading it and its fun :)

  4. Hi There..
    I'm your newest follower and I must say I LOVE your blog!! I like how you balance life and teaching and pinterest in your posts! :D

  5. I left you an award on my blog! :)

  6. Ooh, GREAT goal #5 for this week. That is so tough in the moment, but it feels SO GOOD after! And nobody blames you for buying something at Target - I'm proud of you for getting out of there with only one thing! I could never do that!! Thanks for linking up!
