Here’s where I see it getting deep.  What are my needs?  I think many times we mistake our wants for needs and I’m no different.  But here are some obvious and things that I’m actively working on this year.

Organization, organization, organization…my house is a hot mess.  We have decided to start with the kitchen and keep it straight, not load it with more stuff and keep it clean.  Form habits that hopefully will transfer to the rest of the house.  I can’t live in the chaos any more.

Weight.  I am over weight and while losing everything I need to is overwhelming, I would like to go down 1 dress size in the next few months.  (ok that sounds like a want, but keep reading) I went down 1 size when I broke my arm and just that amount of weight made a difference in my energy and mobility.  I see the need here.   Again I’m taking baby steps.

Family.  I am trying to set aside more family time.  Since my youngest started driving, I have not been driving kids around like I used to, and there is not as much family time at home.  I plan to look up from the computer or close it completely more often.  Even if it’s just to watch American Idol.

Other needs?  Financial  debt reduction

Laugh more…my puppy helps with that.  I’ll show you a video soon.

Fix more food from scratch.  I may need some help here.  I’m a 5 ingredient or less kind of girl.

What action step did I take this week to address one of last week’s wants?

I got through several piles of old clothes and laundry.  I went out to breakfast with a friend.  So there’s two!  Not bad huh?

Thanks for playing along!  I know I was late with mine this week, but helping with Blissdom has been crazy.  Hopefully things will settle down and I can focus on these goals more!

    I agree with you, I can’t live in chaos anymore! I also love this: ‘5 ingredient or less kind of girl’ b/c I’m a frozen or box kind of girl. LOL Hey I’m trying to learn though! I plan to smile more and laughing would be great too. Love your goals and you can do it girl! They are very reachable.
