Three Things Tuesday

Last week,  I "announced" (in quotations, because that word kinda makes it seem like a bigger deal than it really is) that I am going to do a weekly goal setting post, for personal motivation.

My three goals of last week were:

1.I will not drink any soda .

2.I will clean my room.
3.I will give myself a manicure and pedicure.

How did it go?

Pretty well acually.

I managed to not drink any soda at all, and after a day or two, it wasn't that hard. This may not seem like a big deal to many of you, but for my fellow adicts, I am sure you understand how this wasn't as easy task. But, I did it!

I celebrated my accomplishment today with a 20oz bottle of Pepsi that I couldn't taste at all, due to some sinus/allergy something-or-other, that has rendered my tastebuds useless. Victory was not so sweet this time. Oh well, maybe not having been able to taste it will make it easier to get back on the wagon.(so to speak.)

(Sidenote: This is the very first time I have ever completely lost my sense of taste. It is awful. It has only been two meals and I miss food already. I always thought that when others has complained of loss taste, is was lessened taste, which I have experienced before, I didn't know it was even possible to not be able to taste at all. I guess you learn something new every day.)

My room got cleaned too! I had taken pictures but due to camera issues, I don't have any to post. That is probably okay though, because in light of Gemma's bed diving incident, I took my bed off of it's frame and I also took the desk out of the room to give us some more space so now my bedroom looks kind of...pitiful.

But tidy, so I guess it is an improvement none-the-less.

Sadly, I failed with my third goal, of the diy (or dim I guess) pedicure and manicure. I never found the time. O,  never made the time rather. I don't think it is my "thing" anyway, ya know? I would rather pay someone else attend to those sorts of things. <---- Quite possible the most diva-ish thing you will ever see on this blog.

I have decided to re-work this goal, and I am promising myself a manicure and pedicure (from a salon) after I lose 10 pounds. It gives me motivation to lose the weight, and I think that the self indulgence was my intention for setting the goal, and a "real" manicure and pedicure will be much more self indulgent, anway. 

Overall, I am pleased. As they say, two outta three ain't bad. Although, I really am gonna try to reach all three of my goals for next week.

What goals, you ask?

For next week:
  1. I will wake up every morning by 8:00 a.m.
  2. I will write down everything I eat or drink, and post about it here.
  3. I will buy myself an article of clothing.
Wish me luck!


  1. Great goals! The last goal sounds fun.

    LOL at "diva-ish". I am the same way about manicures and pedicures.

    Best wishes to you and hope you achieve your goals!

  2. Good luck! That's a great reward for a measly 10 lbs. You can do it!!
