May Goals + April Goals Update

It's the beginning of the month which means it's goal time again!  Make sure to check out my post with my April goals.

1. Start "training" for my first 5k.  Success!  I have officially started the C25k program and I end up running/walking about 2.5 miles every session.  Sometimes a little more, sometimes a little less.  I didn't do so great on vacation, but I'm ready to get back into the swing of things!  I'm using an app to track my workouts.

2. Go on a date with the hubster.  FAIL.  Again.  Even though we didn't get a date, we did get a week-long vacation so I'm ok with it!

3. Read 2-3 books.  FAIL.  I only read 1 book.  I was thinking that I would do a lot of reading on vacation but there's no time for that when you have a baby!  I started another book before the end of the month but I'm only on the second chapter so I can't even count that.  I tried out a new author and I'm excited to read more of her books:

4. Get pregnant!  In case you didn't read, this was an April Fool's joke! :)  I'm definitely NOT pregnant!

5. Get some things done for Carson's birthday party.  Success!  I have gotten quite a bit done for Carson's big day:
  • I ordered a personalized birthday poster for Carson from one of my best friends.
  • I am working with a cake baker and I think we have a design finalized!  
  • I purchased and sent out invitations.
  • I made a list of food/drink options.
  • I bought plates/napkins/utensils for the party + streamers & tablecloths.
  • I started working on a few DIY decorations (door sign + banners). 
  • I scheduled Carson's 1 year pictures.
6. Snack healthier.  Comme cicomme ça.  That means "so so" in of my favorite terms still since taking 4 years of French back in the day! :)  I've been snacking on fruit, string cheese, applesauce, granola bars, and similar things when I get hungry but I'm still eating junk, too.  I don't think I can give up the junk.  Everyone deserves dessert, right?  :)

Now onto new goals!
May Goals

1. Continue "training" for my first 5k and do not skip any weeks!  In April I skipped a week for vacation, but in May I have no excuses!  Let's do this!

2. Go on a date with the Hubster.  I'm making this a goal AGAIN because May is our anniversary month.  I always thought we would do something super special for our 5 year wedding anniversary, but since Carson's first birthday is a week before our anniversary, I don't see any super special anniversary plans in our future.  That's ok with me, but I would still like to go on a husband-wife date to celebrate!

3. Create a simple chore schedule.  Now that the weather is nicer, Carson and I are getting out of the house every day.  This gives me less time for chores and cleaning and I end up getting behind and having to do a big day of cleaning (which I hate)!  I want to make a simple schedule that gives me an idea of a few quick chores to do every day so that I don't get so behind.  I feel like having a schedule will just be a quick little reminder of what needs done!

4. Buy a few new pieces of clothing for ME.  I haven't bought new clothes in a long time.  Whenever I go to the stores now I head straight to the baby section!  Baby clothes are so much fun!  When I first had Carson I bought some bigger stuff to fit my post partum size.  That stuff hasn't fit me since last summer (yay) but now I'm running short on summer clothes that fit properly.  My goal is to pick out at least a couple pieces that I can wear during the warmer weather this spring/summer!

5. Go through our dressers/closets!  In May I want to go through Carson's clothes and pack away anything he has outgrown.  So far I've been pretty good about doing this, but it's time again and I need to pack away most of his 12 month clothes.  Time to go buy space bags!  I also want to do this with my own clothes.  I haven't really outgrown anything but I need to go through and get rid of old stuff and make a big donation pile!  I don't know why I have such a hard time getting rid of clothes!  I always feel like as soon as I donate something I'll want to wear it the next week, haha!

What are your goals for May?
