Goals for November, 2018: Update #2

We’re about at the halfway point in November, and luckily, I’m about halfway to meeting my November goals: Make Six Freezer Meals Sprout’s had grass fed ground beef on sale for $2.99 a pound earlier in the month, so I ended up making my 6 freezer meals using ground beef: Easy Hamburger Soup Beef Tortilla […]

4 Weeks to a More Productive Life: Week 1

So, for most of this year, I’ve felt like a freight train has run me over, but as I mentioned in my November goals, little by little I’m beginning to feel more like myself and able to tackle more projects.  Things may not be running smoothly at home, but they are improving with ABA, so […]

Goals for the Month of November, 2018

Gradually, bit by bit, I feel like our lives are stabilizing and becoming a bit more “normal” or just a bit like life used to be.  I finally feel like I should be able to set goals this month and hopefully accomplish them.  Year long goals are a little more than I can contend with, […]

Goals for 2018: Week 36 of 52

Guys, it’s still too early to tell, but I feel like our lives are on the way up.  For the past 2.5 years, we’ve been on a really rough journey.  Two of our three kids were diagnosed with high functioning autism, and both of them were prone to severe meltdowns. Our child who was first […]

Goals for 2018: Week 33 of 52

Last week, I tried to just eat when I was hungry. When you’re a stress eater, as I have been all my life, waiting for your body to give you a sign it’s hungry is challenging. Honestly, the only times I’ve been able to beat my stress eating and get thin is when I go […]

Goals for 2018: Week 32 of 52

You may have noticed I’ve skipped my goals post for the last five weeks or so.  I’m not going to lie, the last few weeks have been ROUGH. I’ve stopped doing anything on my goal list. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. But then, last night when my husband and I were watching Criminal Minds on Netflix, I […]

Goals for 2018: Week 27 of 52

This week was crazy busy thanks to arranging respite care for my child with autism and having a 3 hour(!) ABA intake as well as attending the final appointment with the psychiatrist to diagnosis my other child, who did indeed get a diagnosis of autism.   Funny that I always had what I thought were quirky […]

Goals for 2018: Week 26 of 52

This week, I tried to take care of myself.  I exercised 6x this week.  (Can you believe it?!)  I decided writing in my journal at night is just not working because I’m way too tired by the time I have time to write, so it just doesn’t get done.  Instead, I started writing in my […]

Goals for 2018: Week 25 of 52

I’m part of a group on Facebook for parents of kids with autism.  One woman asked other parents what they did to relax and get rid of stress.  She said that she smoked.  I eat.  Many people had healthier (ahem) ways to relieve stress.  Then one woman came on and said how important it is […]
