Spring Fever Challenge: Week 3

Life's Journey with a Smile

1.  What have you done this past week to help you achieve your goals?
Goal #1 - I have not started my walk-to-run program yet but I'm hoping tomorrow is the magic morning that I can drag myself out of bed.  Please keep your fingers crossed for me - I need all the help I can get.

Goal #2 - I succeeded at eating only two desserts for the week.  I definitely thought this would be harder for me than it has been.  Perhaps I should keep my mouth shut and not jinx myself.

Goal #3 - I drastically cut back on my Facebook and blog time and it felt good to not be attached to the computer so much.  There were a couple of days that I logged into Facebook more than once, but I didn't stick around too long.  I'm definitely glad I made this goal.

Goal #4 - I did not use my DSLR this week or last week because I keep forgetting that it's even on my list of goals!  I think I need to put my camera bag where I can see it on a regular basis.

Goal #5 - I haven't yet tackled anything from my 101 in 1001 list but I've got time.  Perhaps I should go refresh my memory as to what is even on that list (since I can't even remember what's on this list of seven goals!)

Goal #6 - I haven't done any spring organizing or purging yet but hopefully soon!

Goal #7 - This past week wasn't a very spring-like week in North Dakota so Crickett and I didn't get out for any walks.  The week ahead isn't looking much nicer.  Could someone please send spring our way?

2.  What did you do this past week to make you feel good about yourself?
I bought myself a new pair of running shorts!

3.  Are your SFC goals your ultimate goals or steps to your ultimate goals? Do you find it easier to set big goals or do you like making mini-goals?
Some of my goals in this challenge are stepping stones to my long-term goals.  I like having a combination of small and large goals on my plate (finishing them is another story sometimes).

4.  What are some of your ultimate goals, things on your bucket list?
Ride in a hot air balloon, go hang gliding, run a marathon, visit all 50 states, and travel abroad.

5.  Fun Question: If you could achieve only one more thing in your life, what would it be?
This question is way too difficult to be considered a "fun" question!  There are a million things I want to accomplish yet in my life, but to have peace of mind would make me the happiest.  If I could learn to let go of the idea of perfection and forgive myself for the mistakes I make, I'd be more than content.  To learn to live my life in shades of gray rather than just black or white would be so freeing.

PMSL at the scary Easter bunny.

Spring is well and truly here in the UK so I'll try and send some over to you.

I struggle as well remembering by 101 list. I keep debating printing it off and sticking it in my diary as a reminder. Sometimes I log in and realise I've done some things already - a satisfying tick there!
