Three Things Thursday

  1. I make 98% of the home cooked meals in our house but I’m not a baker.  The husband who is much more scientific and needs to follow a recipe in the kitchen has proven himself to be a really wonderful baker and lately we have had lots of fresh bread. He recommends these two books for bread making: Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day and Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day.
  2. I can’t get enough citrus. Apparently I became pregnant at the perfect time because it’s citrus season and I just can’t enough of it.  I am loving grapefruit and cara cara oranges.  I love to add blood orange, lemon and lime to water and seltzer.  I also have been craving Izze sparkling grapefruit juice. 
  3.  We have a million types of glasses in our house but I only like to drink from pint glasses.  Okay so I don’t drink everything in pint glasses but lately the only thing I drink is water and I only like it in pint glasses.  Give it to me in another glass and I’m apt to poor it into a pint glass.  

Setting Goals

I am a huge fan of setting goals- weekly, monthly, yearly, ect. Goals help me to stay on track and really what feels better than actually accomplishing a goal?

This week I decided that I needed to get back on track with my goal setting and create tasks for the week and a reward for completion (what can I say I like rewards as well). My goals this week are:

  • Pick up the living room floor
  • Unload the dishwasher and load every other day
  • Change the sheets
  • Do two loads of laundry
  • Clean the guest bathroom
  • Go to pre-natal yoga at Evolution
  • Do my pre-natal workout dvds 3 times this week
  • Do my pre-natal workout dvd once this week
  • Write 4 health and wellness articles


  • I have unloaded the dishwasher once and I wrote two articles this morning.

Reward for completing everything:

  • Buy myself a $25 gift card for a spa treatment

Punishment for not completeing:

  • No movie theater date this weekend instead I’ll be home cleaning the second bathroom.

Do you set goals? How often do you set them? How do you ensure you will accomplish your goals?
