post no. 183 -- The Weekly Detox v. 1

As I'm sitting here writing this "Button Up Your Overcoat" by Ruth Etting is playing on Pandora. If you don't know it, I suggest you look it up, it ties in quite well with this post.

It seems a lot of bloggers have been lately resolving to take better care of themselves, their homes, and their families. Kaelah has started a 30 Day Detox campaign to tidy up things with herself, and this little pea is no exception. For the last week or so, Kris and I have both been slacking off on getting over to the gym. I honestly forget the last time we sat down and talked, had a meal at home, and connected. Most of the time we just tune out on the computer, head out to a busy restaurant, or plug into a movie. Working out was our little thing to do together, not that the whole time we'd even be in contact with each other, but still, it was a step in the right direction.

For the last couple of days around here we've been extremely busy, and immensely exhausted as a result of that. What else is new, right? But we need to get back into our routine. Today I did some snooping around on line in between our new marketing campaign at work and rumaged up some great little posters to help on the workout quest.

(Just in case you're not up to jumping straight into Level One)

There are two more pages of the plan to this little series, but as you can see in the post's title, this is just part one. Now, just working out isn't going to cut it. After reading Danielle's blog a week or so ago I saw she was on to something. Danielle has created a 8 week long post series based around week long goals to focus on for fitness, nutrition, relationships, creativity, and personal time. After giving it a little thought, I figured I's spread my goals over the course of a week as well, having the short attention span that I do, I thought it was just the right amount of time to dedicate before losing interest again. My goals for the week (through next Friday) are:

Fitness: To get through the first week of the Level One Exercise Plan. 

Nutrition: Include at least two of the following in every meal. 

Relationships: Spend more quality time with Kris every day. Instead of listening to the radio in the car, use the time to catch up about life. 

Creativity: Develop more sketches, and finish more art projects. 

Personal Time: Charge up my Nook and remember to read. Learn to decompress before jumping straight into bed. 

Have any of you started your own weekly challenges?? Would love to hear what you've been working on and what improvements you've made in your own life!
