beat the heat week5

Weight Wars
this week's questions:
  1. What have you done this week to work towards your goals?
  2. What have you done to make yourself feel fabulous?
  3. How are you finding your goals this challenge? Do you still think you can achieve them?
  4. Freebie! If you want to change one goal change it. Explain your decision even if you don’t change any.
  5. Fun Question of the Week: If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be? Your funds are unlimited!
question 1: (1) missed a couple days, but had more good than bad (2) skip it (3) i am kicking this goals ass... except that one day i way overslept ;) (4) came in over budget on groceries, but way under budget on gas. too bad my miscellaneous spending is still out of control. i've been tweaking the budget, which should help in the next couple months (5) i never write when things are really good. i had intended to on friday. i was having a really good day, and i wanted to have the reminder that those days exist. didn't get to it. then i got some bad news yesterday, which i did end up journaling about. i don't want to go into detail, but my family could use some extra positive energy

question 2: i registered for classes. if you've been following the snippets of info here and on twitter, you know this is a big freaking deal. i need to take care of some paperwork next week to finalize everything. i have a post coming with a bit more detail :)

question 3: sometimes awesome, sometimes aggravating. more annoyed with myself than my goals. this whole workout thing is just not going well. i have a plan that goes into effect next week. fingers crossed i can get my ass in gear. all my goals are attainable as long as i stick with them

question 4: i've done this in previous challenges, but i don't want to change any of my current ones. even with the frustration, these are things i really want to do consistently. forming new habits is a necessary pain in the ass; this challenge is a step towards changing my habits for good

question 5: i would stay in maryland, but i would buy a vacation home in the mountains. maybe in pennsylvania, maybe in arizona. somewhere semi-secluded where we could hideout for a couple weeks. or i might take my mom around the world and "live" everywhere. mom is the biggest reason i'd stay in maryland. if she wanted to move out of state, i'd move. if she wanted to travel on a boat, i'd order a monogrammed lifevest (i'm still a fancy bitch, even at sea ;)). i couldn't imagine being anywhere permanently without her nearby

via better moments
happiness isn't at the bottom of a shot glass, but there was a whole lot of delicious on the way there. i have awesome friends who know when i need a hug, a laugh and a drink <3
