Weekly Wishes {March 17, 2014}

I’ve already eaten more cheese in the last week of living in Wisconsin than I’ve eaten in the last couple months! So far, living here has been wonderful – so quaint and cozy.

Hubby and I had a great weekend celebrating our 6 year meet-iversary! You may remember reading all about the day we met a couple months ago, which was St. Paddy’s day weekend in Chicago 2008. While we weren’t in Chicago this year, we still enjoyed a Guinness and quite a few other delicious beers! Here’s a little throwback shot from 6 years ago which you may have already seen on Instagram.

Last Week’s Wishes

Reach 7,500 steps on my Fitbit each day.

I didn’t reach this AT ALL. I got close a couple of the days but never reached the daily goal.

I didn’t realize just how little I walk in my work from home arrangement. It’s really awful! I used to walk at least 3-4, maybe 5, miles a day when I worked downtown and walked to work. We did join a gym the other day so I’ll be hitting the gym this week to try to make up for the lack of movement in my life.

Anyone have any suggestions besides the gym?!! Walking to and from Starbucks only nets me about 3,500 steps…ha!

Get at least 8 hours of sleep for real!

Hooray – I did this every single night! We went to bed around 10pm each night and I woke up with the Fitbit silent alarm each morning around 7am. I netted at least 8 hours each night and needed it after daylight savings stole an hour from me last weekend. Even though I really am loving the extra evening hour of light, it drastically threw me off my routine and I felt kinda sick all week. Here’s hoping this week is better!

This Week’s Wishes

Be more social.

This week I’m setting only one goal because it’s an important one…and I’m really busy this week. I’ve realized I prefer to be at home, super boring, all the time. Hubby seems to prefer this too, so we’re the perfect storm of recluse. If we don’t get out of our anti-social rut soon, we’ll never have any friends in our new city when we move!

This weekend is chock full of social engagements though. I’m attending a baby shower on Saturday afternoon for my sweet friend Amanda. Saturday night we’re having dinner with some friends we met during our Palm Island vacation in 2012! They’ll be in Chicago from West Virginia and we’re so excited to see them again. Thanks to Facebook for keeping us in touch!

Sunday is my dad’s birthday and we’ll be celebrating with a late lunch and early evening show of Rent. It’ll be a very fun day and I’m excited to do something a little different. We’ll head back to Wisconsin Sunday evening or early Monday morning, depending on when the show ends.

Is your weekend as packed as ours?!

productivity for working moms

welcome!

I'm Jessica!

I used to glorify "busy." If I wasn't busy, I wasn't doing enough. But when I became a mama, my entire outlook shifted.

 

The only way out involved a complete overhaul of my time, money & communication systems.

 

Today, I'm doing LESS and achieving more.

It's a productivity dream!

I'm still learning (and always will be!), but my purpose here is to help YOU achieve this level of space in your life too.
