Cubicle to Fit-ish

How a wimp becomes fit(ish)

Fire Up into Fall #3: Bring on October!

What have you done this week to help get you to your goals?  

Not much, haha!  I keep thinking that work will get LESS stressful or that life will SLOW DOWN; but, I think I know that with the holidays coming full force at me, this is NOT THE CASE!  I need to stop making excuses and make myself a priority.  In order to make this a little easier, my simplified goals for this week are:

  • Eat breakfast at home 2 days
  • Bring my lunch 3 days
  • Clean my kitchen floor
  • Clean my kitchen table
  • Go to bed at 10:30 3 nights

What did you do this week to make yourself feel fabulous?  

I went out to dinner with my guy on Friday and had a wonderful couple of hours away from work, our house, and the puppy; it reminded me of when we first dated and how much fun it was just to tell each other stories.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?  What are your goals?  Ambitions?  

It is so funny you asked.  I love Self magazine.  Last month, they had an article by one of my favorite bloggers/writers, Erin Zammett Ruddy, about whether or not you need a 5 year plan, and, if you do, how to really delve into personal vs. professional, work/life balance, etc.  I started answering the questions, but I am not all the way through yet!  However, I can say that I would love to see myself and my guy with a kid or two (and maybe another puppy!), happy working at a job that lets me be more creative, happy and challenged in my relationship and friendships, and taking some sort of class.

Give us a tip or a fact.  About anything, what is something great that you think everyone should know?  

If you don’t like a certain vegetable, think of at least 1 other way to cook it, especially if something’s texture turns you off   – you could surprise yourself.  For years, I hated all squash and it turns out it was only because I had only had it cooked until it was mush – roasted squash is delicious!  Who knew!?!?!?

Fun Question:  What was the most recent dream you remember?  

I don’t remember my dreams…  I always wake up with a really vivid memory and then forget it immediately.  My guy talks in his sleep, so I remember more about his than my own!
