Be Productive!

Dr. Seuss// quote || Image// Google

Here is to a happy productive week! In a slump? Leo over at has a great list of ideas to help yourself get out of a slump right here.  I love zenhabits and I am currently reading Zen Habits: Handbook for Life. If you want to check it out and give your money straight to Leo, you can also buy it directly from his site here.

My Goals for the week:
  1.  Gym 3x this week (MWF)
  2. Dinner and Car shopping with my father Tuesday
  3. Wii Boxing on my off gym days for a half hour
  4. Planning out next week!
I will let you all know how I do with fulfilling these goes on Friday, though I do have a special treat to get me through the week, my best friend is coming for the weekend.

How do you stay productive or plan out your days? Let me know in the comments!

i fail

I fail as a regular blogger. I know, I know technically I've not failed, I've been overwhelmed with real life. to rectify this situation I will be spending the next hour or so planning out my blog posts for the week. I said it. An entire week of blog posting in a day. I'm slowly working on getting this lovely space up to speed, really I am. The lovely Andrea, is working on my blog layout as we speak (you can see that nice new header above) and I am still trying to wrap my head around what I actually want to do with this space. I am also struggling with work and following through on my gym resolution for the new year. Don't get me wrong, I'm making the goal of 2-3 times a week. It's just that after the gym I want to sleep. Balance is the key. I'm working on it.

I'm going to go try to be productive! I leave you with a picture of Charles, my new house plant. I have no idea what he is besides awesome. I brought the jungle home with me today!

This is Charles. I can't wait to throw some color on those walls!

This is my first attempt at keeping a plant alive. Usually I kill cacti even though they claim to be low maintenance. Today marks the first day of Charles' and I living life today. We shall see how that pans out.

i am now complete

I bought this beauty for $10.00. My life is complete. Granted this is the Fisher Price Model, but I can not afford the fancy wood and glass light up globes. It's my new nightlight! My friend and I will be having a thrift store movie day this Saturday so I can not wait to see what else I can find!

i am so excited!

So I bought the domain! I own it! I am also very pleased to announce that I have purchased a blog makeover! The lovely Andrea Hatch of is going to be design a gorgeous layout for me and putting it all together for me!

I've wanted to run a blog for years now, I really truly have. I don't care if I am popular in the blog-sphere mostly I found this to be easier than writing in a journal. I use to be good about writing in a journal. Anymore it's like pulling teeth. Granted I haven't been updating this as much as I would like, but the new year just started and I am slowly getting into the groove of things! I'm making plans to get myself on a schedule, I've just been bogged down with work the last few weeks.

But, back to Andrea! I discovered her etsy shop, Galactytes what feels like forever ago and I have been coveting a few things. That was when I discovered she'd do blog design. Her artwork makes me happy and I have to admit, I may have splurged and ordered a few things using Christmas money!

Regardless, stay tuned this place is getting a face lift!

Do you find it hard to keep a daily journal?
