I think we all know how my goals turned out. Ugh.
So now it’s on to October. It’s a clean slate. My sins from September are dead and buried. Moving on…
Goal #1 – Get the Blogger Dance Party up with Monica. I am serious about this. I’m thinking all of us shooting some video dancing to a song (Monica suggested “Dancing Queen” or “Vogue” which I think either would be fabulous) and then you’d send them to me and I’d make Mark put them together in a “blogging dance party” kind of way. And you don’t have to be a blogger (hi, Veda) to play. Who’s in?
Goal #2 – Love my body in at least one way every day. Last weekend I decided that I was done with hateful, negative thoughts towards my body. So I took a magic marker and started writing on all the body parts that I typically ridicule. I wrote “Love” on my stomach. “Healthy” and “Beauty” on my thighs. And if you were at the Pampered Chef party you may have noticed some of the “love” ink bled through my shirt because I (stupidly) used my Downy Ironing Sauce before I headed out the door. Oops. Anyways, I wrote these words on my body and do you know my mind started changing immediately. All of a sudden I wanted to pamper my body with bananas for breakfast instead of a french toast sticks from Sonic. And I even worked out some because I thought this wonderful body of mind deserved it. I think changing my frame of mind is really going to help with that whole “workout” and “drive past NOT thru McD’s” goal.
Goal #3 – Decorate/clean our dining room area. Right now it’s half office/half storage space/half complete and utter eyesore. I would post a picture, but that’s just embarrassing.
Goal #4 – Pass my MFT exam. Because I have to. And I’ve spent way more money on this test than I’d ever care to admit. And if I don’t pass I’ll have to spend that money again. And if I have to spend that money again Mark will probably cry himself to sleep for a month.
Goal #5 – Why do I want a goal #5 so bad? BECAUSE I HATE EVEN NUMBERS. I don’t even want to put this out there, but I’m going to because I read The Alchemist and The Universe responds to bravery. (it took 10 minutes of staring at the screen to write this goal…) Couples for Bound Together. I need to quit being a wimp. That is all.
Oh, and I want to make out with Mark more. It’s true, but I mostly shared it because I wanted to throw some pizazz in this post. It needed it. (And seriously, committed relationship folks make October Make Out Month!)
