I remember doing a 'currently' post in September of last year, and I really enjoyed it. They are my favorite type of post to read on other blogs (hint hint). So, when I saw Bailey share her's for today, I thought I should do one again!

STARTING::  To clean out my apartment/storage. Too much stuff!! Simplify!!

READING::  I'm reading a few things right now: The Bible, I Regret Nothing (Jen Lancaster), The Shunning (Beverly Lewis) and Finding Audrey (Sophie Kinsella). Plus several magazines!

WATCHING:: NCIS. Duh. We are about to cancel cable and just get Netflix...but I just saw that NCIS isn't on Netflix. WHAT AM I GOING TO DO?! I'm also finishing up all my dvr'd stuff before I lose it ... mostly Revenge (OMG) and Downton Abbey. 

EATING:: Awful. I'll do good for a day or two...and then completely lose my mind for a few days. I just told my friend that I needed an intervention. I am trying to eat gluten free though. I just seem to feel better when I do. 

EXCITED:: About my new car!!! C bought me a new (as in brand new!) SUV this past weekend. I've never had a new car...I've always driven older cars. I mean, I know it's just a car but...I'm just SUPER grateful for it...and I love driving around in it. 

TRYING:: To get out of bed earlier. I have such a hard time going to sleep at night...and an even harder time getting up in the morning. Ugh. 

CELEBRATING:: My baby brother's high school graduation (last week). My mom's birthday (Saturday) and my Dad's (Monday). 

CREATING:: Some samples for blog design clients. :) 

LISTENING::  My car has XM radio...which I've never had before. I'm loving the prime country station, the elvis station and of course...the 90's station. Old school!

THANKING::  God my dad is getting better everyday. We are just so blessed that it wasn't worse than it was. 

WAITING::  For football season. I can't wait. I can't wait. I can't wait!!!

WANTING::  To buy a house. C and I are in full on saving mode. We go through periods where we lose motivation... right now it's pretty serious!! (this is the exact same answer from my September currently post...but hopefully we are close!!). 

PLANNING:: C's BIG birthday party. Less than 2 months away!!

DREAMING::  Of going back to school this fall. Got accepted, now I just need to figure out the logistics (ie the finances) of it all.

NEEDING:: To get some new clothes. Especially a bathing suit (which I dread shopping for).

GOING::  To start Dave Ramsey's FPU again. We were doing so good and then slowly we started using credit cards again and now, I just feel like we need a reset. Maybe I'll post about this soon. 

FEELING::  Icky. I just feel run down a lot. I know if I would change my diet (and not just for a few days) and get more activity in....I would feel so much better. Got to do this!!!

FINISHING:: My glass of water. Trying to get in my minimum target everyday. 



I totally forgot to blog about my weigh in yesterday! Oops.

Well, the good news is... I lost 1.4.  The bad news is... I'm still .2 away from 35!! I feel like it's the number that has eluded me the most on this journey.

So, I'm at 34.8 pounds down. That's pretty exciting. My next major goal is to lose 50 pounds. It's SO motivating to think that is only about 15 pounds away. 15 pounds seems completely attainable, right?!!! I'd love to reach that goal before the end of summer.



I'm not 100% sure why I continue to set monthly goals.  I look back at the last few months and wonder "what did you do?" I mean, I'm obviously doing stuff everyday...but I'm not having much consistency in accomplishing my goals for the month.

But, I do love a good to-do list, and I'm nothing if not (ignorantly) optimistic at the beginning of the month. Ha. So, I'm hoping and planning for a good June!!

1. Start bible study at church. I signed up for the women's bible study at church this summer. It starts next week, and I'm so excited!! 

2. Continue reading the bible daily. I printed out a plan last fall. It's actually a 90 day plan, which is incredibly ambitious. I am just using it as a guide. I'm still plugging through The Old Testament, but I'm enjoying it. 

3. Get a new car (dreaming!!!!). So my Jeep and I are having issues. She keeps overheating...even though she has ALL NEW PARTS. It's time for us to separate paths. I just dread having a car payment after not having one for the last few years.

4. Hit the 40 pounds lost mark!!! Even though I've been trying to hit 35 pounds for about a month...I'm really close to that. Hopefully I can get another 5 off after that!

5. Read 5+ books. I've gotten SO bad at reading here lately. I mean, I've started about 5 books, but I just can't get motivated to finish any of them. 

6. Order invites for C's party. I was going to design them, but I found some cute ones to order...much easier and actually, a lot cheaper. Win Win!

7. Refinish Buffet. Seriously, one of these days, we will actually finish re-doing this. In our defense, it rained all of May, and we couldn't exactly work in the rain. I don't have much of an excuse for the previous 11 months. Ha.

Seven goals. TOTALLY doable, right?!! I can do this!!!
