The Weekly Chase #19

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I know I sure did! Saturday the boys all got some yard work done. Then we went to lunch with my friend Stephanie and her family. After lunch the boys finished up yard work and then my sister-in-law, her hubby, and their two dogs came over for a movie night. It was fun but the night ended early because I had to go to bed early. I had to wake up at 4AM for a long run the next morning with my friends! The long run was great...although it was hard getting out of bed that early! It's been a while since I got up so early for a run!

Sunday, after my run, we went to church. Then we headed to my in-laws house and celebrated Cinco de Mayo! My family LOVES their Mexican food! We ate fish tacos for good! And my hubby made homemade salsa...his specialty! :-) It was a great afternoon of family time!

It's another Monday...which means it's time for the Weekly Chase! I hope you will join all of us this week as we chase those goals!

It's also a new month and Molly has a new challenge for us! It's called Bring a Friend Along. We want you to bring a friend into part of your goal making...whether it be for exercising, sanity, prayer partners, etc. We all know how important goal setting is...let's get our friends involved with us! did I do last week? Let's recap my goals!

  • Goal #1: Be a better mom by spending at least 15 quality minutes with each son every day (challenge goal). I felt like I did pretty good with this goal last month. My boys seem to have appreciated the extra time I have spent with them. I plan to keep this one going!
  • Goal #2: Read my Bible devotional every day and grow in my relationship with God (challenge goal). I did pretty good with this...but still have room for improvement. I want to make this as much as a part of my daily routine as brushing my teeth! ;-)
  • Goal #3: Stretch and roll every day (challenge goal). Pretty good...but still an ongoing goal.
  • Goal #4: Run at least 3 times this week. Yes! I ran two short runs and a long run this week! Yay!
  • Goal #5: Finish cleaning out my closet. More progress but still not complete.
  • Goal #6: Drink my water! I did much better with this! I DID have a sweet tea on Saturday with lunch and a coke on Sunday at lunch. But the rest of the week...all water! :-)

Here are the goals I am going to chase this week!

Goal #1: Find an accountability partner for my daily Bible devotions (challenge goal). I want someone who I can text/call/see and for us to keep each other accountable for reading our Bibles each day, praying for each other, and sharing verses throughout the week. 

Goal #2: Stretch and roll every day.

Goal #3: Finish cleaning out my closet. The garage sale is this weekend!

Goal #4: Work on fundraising for the St. Jude's Memphis Half Marathon. I'll tell you more about this later but I signed up for this race as a St. Jude's Hero. I will be fundraising to raise money for St. Jude's Hospital. My goal is to raise $500 and I'm hoping to accomplish that. It's my first time fundraising for a race so I'm a little worried about it!

Goal #5: Run at least 3 times this week. I greatly enjoyed my long run this past weekend so I want to get another one in this next weekend as well as my two short runs during the week. 

So that's my plan for the week! 

QOTD: What are your goals this week? Have you ever raised money for a race? Any fundraising suggestions for me?
