April is here and so it is new goal time

This month is my crazy busy month, ok ok so is next month as well. So when I was trying to figure out my goals for April, I was having a hard time. I like to usually make my goals something that enriches our lives for the better. However that usually means making a big change in how I do things. I knew that this month it would be harder for me to accomplish this.
So then I thought I could make my goals very simple, example: I could say I plan to get all of Sarah's dance stuff organized, ready, altered, and packed. But I would have already been 99% done that so it almost felt like cheating. So then I decided to make the goals realistic instead of easy. There is a difference. hahahaha
So without further babbling here they are:

1. Keep the house clean.
This might sound like an easy goal but I must let you know that every single day we will be out of the house doing something except for part of the last week of April and hubby will be home some of that, so I don't want to spend that week cleaning up from the rest of the month.
I tend to get a little lazy when I am busy and the first thing to fall by the wayside is my house.

2. Make snacks and healthy food choices.
I know also that when we are on the goal all the time I will pack or buy healthy for my daughter and I will grab junk. So my goal is to always have healthy food choices around for both of us. If I make the snacks then I know what goes into them as well. Win win.

3. Keep drinking the water.
Since Lent is almost over I am scared I am going to go back to simply grabbing a pop. It is my go to drink when I get stressed. It is also filling so I am not as hungry. Bad calories, bad!
So I need to also pack myself lots of water to have. I am picky about my water so I need to make sure I have lots of the kind I like. Weird? Yep that's me. Just ask my hubby. hahahahahaha

I hope everyone has a blessed Easter!!!!

I am linking up today with Michelle for Caffeinated Randomness and the 3 in 30 weekly linkup. Hop on over and see what others are up to.

  1. Good luck with both your goals for the month and your potentially stressful busyness!! I wonder if you could find another go-to drink? I am trying to make healthier choices, too, so I totally understand the struggle under stress.

  3. Those are great goals. I use Clean Mama cleaning schedule and my house stays fairly clean. I also take one month to tackle a room. I just did my Master Bedroom and Kitchen and it's been amazing how much easier it is to keep clean. Also, sorry that water is not you fave drink. It's all I drink. I hope you can keep it up. Maybe add some lemon or cucumber? Healthy Food snack choices, check out the ebook on my blog called Healthy Snacks to go (Scroll down a bit)! I make granola bars from there all the time.
