5 for Five

Do you tend to set goals only to see them slide down your priority lists? Do you want to make your goals each week to create a better more efficient you?
Do you want to start making goals?
Monday is the day for {5 for Five} with Jenn and Jessica! This link up allows you to come and share your top 5 goals for the week ahead. Link up with us and share what you accomplished last week AND what goals you're setting for yourself the week ahead.  (Still need a little clarification? That's okay! Check out Jessica's summary of the link up here!)

So....I have an obsession with planners, journals, logs, and goals. I feel the insanity of it all is what keeps me sane! With all that I do (and don't do!), it's a great idea if I share some of my weekly goals with you and how I 'attack' them in my daily life. Goals are the structure to my life!
{ 2 for 5}
1) 4x Runs and 2x Cross Training
2) Do at least two structured activities with Lil Mister- we totally knocked out some awesome activities...we practiced cutting, we made a tent, AND we baked cookies again ;-) We're currently working on a surprise gift/card for Ouma's birthday.
3) Run 5km under 35 minutes- I've got this goal on lock! I can't wait to start my speedwork and get a little faster. I learnt that my medical aid has an awesome tool on their website that helps me track my runs and the routes I run. Each time I log a workout I'm entered for a chance to win a trip to the Berlin Marathon! ;-)
4) Do a devotion every morning.
5) Establish a morning routine to fit everything in.
1) 4x Runs and 2x Cross Training
I've decided to keep this goal another week. I will not change a goal until I meet it 100%!!
I need to focus on my physical health. I LOVE running. If you didn't know that, clickity click that little tabby in the balloon over there >>>>>>> that says running! I have to plan to get this in with two kids and a ful time job, but it is well worth it! I've cut my cross training back to twice a week. I did some research and with as much running as I'm trying to get in and I do yoga twice a week, 4 gym sessions aren't really necessary. Although I'd still like to get there!
2) Wash my face every night
This is going to probably seem a little obvious but I have a terrible habit of NOT doing this. I'm doing great at my night time routine. The kitchen is cleaned, lunches made, and bags packed every night before bed which is making my mornings go so GREAT. So, I figured I can add something else to my routine. My skin is getting terrible because I'm sleeping with make up on. This MUST stop ;-)
3) Have a Date Night
Hubby Dearest and I have such hectic schedules between work and the kids that we rarely spend time with each other. However, an awesome friend has offered to take the kids for an evening. She loves my boys and is a great auntie. So...I'm taking her up. She must just name the night she is available and I'm going to surprise Hubby Dearest!
4) Do a devotion every morning.
I've decided to keep this goal another week. I will not change a goal until I meet it 100%!!
I have found an awesome daily devotional delivered right to my inbox! So excited to try it out for a few weeks. Will let you guys know all about it!
5) Establish a morning routine to fit everything in.
I've decided to keep this goal another week. I will not change a goal until I meet it 100%!!
Winter is quickly approaching here and it will be getting lighter later. I need to soak up the opportunity to run in the am while I still can. I need to establish LJ into a feeding routine that allows me to get out the door in the morning. Come winter, I will crosstrain in the morning and run in the afternoons. LJ is eating at my run time right now so I need to get him moved back by about an hour! (We've successfully moved back 30 minutes! Hopefully we can secure the hour by the end of the week!)
So, there you have it! Those are MY goals for the week ahead!
What about you?! What are you setting out to do?! 
Link up and let us know!
