Weekend Update

This was a pretty busy weekend! Here’s what I did!


Friday night kicked off the Chi Alpha Girl’s Event: Dream. It was part sleep over, part challenge, part spa weekend. Candi and Paige put on a world class event- amazing food for body & mind. We did a killer work out and had custom smoothies after. We made dream boards and were challenged to look fear in the face. Most of all, we learned that being brave is taking small risks every day. A little more about my story will be on Candi’s blog next week so you’ll have to wait for all the juicy deets. 😉


Right from there, I headed to the most amazing Mardi Gras themed dinner with the YoPros! (Aka Young Professionals from my church.). This was a small step to live brave- and on theme with one of my February Goals. 99% of these people are already my friends but for some reason I never push myself to make it to the events. I want to fully embrace relationships and I’m so glad I went! Rachel threw such an amazing event and it was a fun reason to get dressed up on Valentine’s Day!

I topped off the weekend with a long chat sesh over bruschetta with my beloved DD. I don’t get to see her every day anymore and I missed her sweet self! Full weekend, full heart- the perfect way to spend Feb 14th.

January Goal Result/New Monthly Goals!

So…..I’m going to be honest. I failed to complete some of my goals. I think it’s highlighting areas that I don’t place emphasis on so I let those goals fall to the wayside. This month was also weird for a lot of reasons. But here’s what happened in Jan.

Mental: Read a book. COMPLETED
I read Amy Poehler’s Yes Please & Lena Dunham’s Not That Kind of Girl. I realized that I love reading! I think I forgot that.

Emotional: 2 Life Giving Friend Dates COMPLETED
Brunch on brunch. Rae unexpectedly came into town and Anna is just someone I enjoy being around. Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver & the other’s gold.

Physical: 30 Day Shred 10x FAILED
I could list a thousand excuses but the bottom line is I just didn’t make this one a priority. I did work out a few times. Back at it next month!

Spiritual: Fast & Prayer Retreat SEMI COMPLETED
I did the prayer retreat with my small group but I wanted to do one on my own too. That never happened. I’m glad I did part of the fasting because I needed it. But, again, didn’t make it as much of a priority.


Mental: Read a book.
Keeping this one. I’m going to read “Make It Happen.”

Emotional: Hang out with a friend that I wouldn’t normally hang out with. Push the comfort zone. Expand the circle.

Physical: Take 3 Yoga Classes
No angry messages about how much of a sinner I am. I like taking Holy Yoga/Yahweh Yoga classes so boo to you. 🙂 What I learned from last month is that I need to put these on the calendar and stick to them.

Spiritual: 10 Devotional Times & 3 fasting days.
I want to make this more of a priority. I’m also going to predesignate days to fast so I can schedule them around working out.

There you have it! I’d love to hear your goals too! It’s always better to do stuff together!
