Let’s talk goals…

I think it is very important to set both long term and short term goals!

Here are a few ideas!

Long Term being…

I want to have lost __ lbs by January 2013

By my birthday in ____________ I plan to fit a size___!

I want to fit that super cute two piece by summer 2013!

Short Term being…

By the of October I want to lose___lbs.

In six weeks I want to drop 2 sizes

In four weeks I want to have more energy


I’ll share a few of my goals:

Goal #1: Have a great weekly workout that I like and gives me the results I am looking for!

Goal #2: Lose 10-15 lbs by November 5th

Goal #3: Fit a size 5/6 by December 1st {I’m currently a size 9}

I have created a “Weight Loss” Printable to share…

I really like writing things down, that way I can look back and see the progress I have made from week to week!

Please feel free to save and share! 🙂


Book Review | 52 Little Lessons from It’s a Wonderful Life


Do you love It’s a Wonderful Life? Then you will love this inspiring, uplifting book that highlights 52 of the best quotes from the movie. 

“I’m the answer to your prayer. That’s why I was sent down here.”
Chapter 15 | Prayer Changes Things

And my all time favorite…
“George Bailey, I will love you till the day I die.”
Young Mary in the the soda shop
Chapter 27

This little book was lovely! 52 lessons, all taken from this beautiful family favorite! I was really excited to see this book published by Thomas Nelson! 

It’s a Wonderful Life, as everyone knows, is a classic. It is also one of my most favorite movies…EVER…I would watch it all year round! This movie is extra special in our home because we can pin point certain events based on when we watched it!

Oh man, What a great idea for Welch to add 52 lessons based on the themes of that movie!!
Loved the small size of the book, and the bite size lessons. In fact, this is a nice way to introduce God, without being overbearing to someone. 

It would be a great gift for Christmas to all ages.
Perhaps this book will bring about an appreciation for the film to those who are not familiar with it or dislike the fact that it is black and white. I for one intend to re-read this book over and over again!

Highly recommended!
