May Goals

IT’S GONNA BE MAYYYYY! Happy May friends! Hard to believe we are in the 5th month of the year. I swear it’s going way too fast! Today I am here with my May goals as well as recapping my April goals. I really love doing these posts!

May Goals

 

May Goals

In April I wanted to…

  • Cook more, maybe try a few new Weight Watchers friendly meals. Eh I didn’t cook much, but we did add some new meals to our rotation. Mostly new variations of chicken 🙂 I also have been eating a lot of cauliflower rice.
  • Keep up with workouts, walks, and Weight Watchers (all the W’s!) Yes I am doing really really good! I have averaged at least 10K steps a day, worked out either at the gym or at barre 6 days a week and not gone over my points at all with Weight Watchers! Slow and steady!
  • Write at least two blog posts a week. I have all my posts scheduled till July and I would love to stay ahead. I am doing really great with this. It’s hard to find the time as much as I want but I’m making it happen.
  • Have at least one date night with Andrew sans baby. This was a fail 🙁 We are just so tired. We have watched a lot of movies and cooked together at home though.
  • Start attending Barre classes at least twice a week. Yes! I am loving being back at Barre!
  • Try to get Liam on more of a schedule. Yes yes yes. He is doing really great. We are currently doing the 12 hours of sleep by 12 weeks plan and we are close!!
  • Start planning our summer trips (so behind!) Yes again, we are excited for our lake trip in June and Chicago in August.
  • Figure out a Father’s Day gift for Andrew. Yes again really excited for this!
  • Read two books. I read 1.5 books. Mostly at 3 AM while feeding Liam or on the elliptical at the gym.

Pretty proud of myself this month 🙂

In May I want to…

  • Find a summer swim class for Liam
  • Have Liam meet Andrew’s grandma
  • Work on Liam’s baby book
  • Find something creative for my mom for Mother’s Day
  • Have 2 dates with Andrew outside of the house
  • Keep up with my W’s (walks, workouts, Weight Watchers)
  • Do an updated Weight Watchers post and Barre post
  • Work on Pinterest growth
  • Write posts through August

What are your May goals?

  1. I love cauliflower rice too! I haven’t had it recently, I think I’m going to start eating it more and eat healthier in general in May. Happy start of the month!

  4. My goals are to keep going on the treadmill M-F for 20 min despite the pain and fatigue. and continue to limit my carbs/sugar. HOPEFULLY to lose weight this month instead of packing it on. I’ve gained 8lbs in the last two months I’ve been exercising and dieting. THank you Menopause! Also to finalize my son’s college plans and revamp our businesses such that they actually make money so we can have a more steady income and pay for college.

    I love hearing that Weight Watchers is working for you! My best friends wants to do it after her baby’s born and I think that’s when I might jump back on the WW wagon! Right now, I joined a 21-day fix challenge group online and that’s whats working for me as of late!

  9. I can relate to several of these goals. This morning, I was telling my husband I need to get serious about my health. Morning walks and night workouts before bed because these kids aren’t playing games when it comes to getting mom’s attention all day long.

    I’m excited to hear what you decide on for your husband and the moms in your life.

  10. I need to try cauliflower rice — I keep hearing more and more about it! Getting your baby on a schedule is hard work! It sounds like you guys have found a good plan to follow. Phoenix was a challenging newborn and while he picked his bedtime early on a full on schedule didn’t fall into place until 7 months. He’s on the small side so he still eats 1-2 times at night but it’s nice when they can fall right back to sleep afterwards!

  13. I can’t IMAGINE how sleepy y’all must be…I don’t have energy half the time the way it is and I’m def not a mom, so I do not know how you do it, Neely!!! How do you keep energy up/semi-up with a newborn???? Is it just supermom skills that come during labor??????

  34. These are such fun goals! I can’t believe you have all of your posts scheduled until July! That is amazing. I have enroll my daughter in swim class on my May goals list, too. We took classes last summer and my daughter learned so much. She did not always “like” the classes, but she LOVED practicing the skills with me afterward. Cold water + stranger = grumpy toddler, forewarning! Good luck with your goals next month!

    Great job achieving so much in April. I wish I could stay ahead of blog posts. They tend to take me a long time to write. Pinterest is amazing, probably my favorite social network.
