Okay, so this week pretty much sucked!  I didn't make ANY of my goals this week.

TO LOSE WEIGHT:  I gained 1 lb this week.   This week was a pretty tough week for me.  I was in a cruddy mood all week.  I think it's the dieting, plus the FREEZING COLD TEMPERATURES and not being able to go out.  And if you knew me, you'd know that I am NOT a home body.  I get cabin fever very easily.  But I also HATE the cold weather.  So if I don't have to go out in it, I won't.  That's not a good combination for someone that doesn't like to be home all of the time.  Plus, I didn't drink my water this week AT ALL.  I only went to the gym one day.  So my goal for next week?  To drink at least 3 glasses of water a day - already had 2 so far today; and to go to the gym at least TWICE next week, since I only went once LAST week.  So now I have to lose 4 lbs to reach the Weight Watchers initial goal of 14 lbs.  That really sucks.  But oh well, it is what it is.  Time to put that behind me and start over this week.  Wish me luck!  Sounds like I'm going to need it!

TO BE MORE ORGANIZED: I've been writing everything down again in my calendar.  I also switched purses, (a Thirty-One Purse, of course!), so now I can carry my calendar with me in my purse.  The other purse I was carrying, as much as I LOVED it, it wasn't big enough for my calendar.  Now this one is, plus it's one of the new styles, and I like it very much.  So I've been keeping my calendar up to date.  That's at least something I did right last week!

TO WRITE MORE: Again, this is my 3rd post for last week, so I didn't get to the 4 posts like I wanted to.  I'll try to make it this week.  

TO DO BETTER IN MY BUSINESS:  Real Estate:  So last week at our Office Meeting I signed up for 4 Service Desks for February.  What that means is you go in the office for 3 hours at a time and answer the phones or meet with anyone that comes in during your time.  In all of the years I've done them, I've only gotten 2 clients off of it, but I like doing them because it makes me go into the office and concentrate on work for at least those 3 hours.  Plus, I never really did it very religiously in the past anyway.  But we can sign up for 4 of them a month, so I plan on doing 4 EVERY SINGLE MONTH.  I also signed up for my Business Planning Session with my Broker.  That means that we sit down and talk about my plans for this year and what I'm going to do to accomplish them.  So that's set for 2/11 at 10:30 am.  That means between now and then I have to print out the Business Plan Form and really sit down and work on it and come up with some ideas to help me meet my goals for this year.  I also ordered some pens with our name and logo on them.  They should be here in the next week or two.  Once they get here, I ordered 500, I will plan on passing them out as much as possible.  The last thing I did is agree to make a donation for our Silent Auction at Andrew's school.  It's a big thing we do every year, The Winter Festival.  This year's theme is HOLLYWOOD.  I will donate a gift certificate for the Silent Auction.  I'll also include some business cards and the new pens I just bought!  That's not until 2/25, but they'll advertise in the school newspaper that I made a donation, so that'll get my name and information out there.

Thirty-One:   One of the people I talked to last week about having a party scheduled one for 2/20.  So I'll get her packet together this week and give it to her to help her get ready for it.  I'm excited about it.  The new catalog comes out 2/1 and there are a lot of new items and prints.  Plus, a lot of them are very "springy" and you all know I'm ready for Spring!  I also talked to 3 other people about having a party.  So hopefully at least 1 of them will have one.  I am going to make a 31 donation to the Silent Auction too for school.  I purchased 31 pens when I ordered the Semonin pens, so that'll be included in the donation as well.  One last thing I'm considering:  I'm thinking about having an Open House later in the month.  One of my friends sells candles, and they're AWESOME.  Another one of my friends sells Tupperware and Avon.  So I'm thinking maybe if I have an Open House with all 3 of us, then maybe we'll get more people to come because they can check them all out at one place.  What do you think?  Do you think that's a good idea, or should I just scrap it?  

So that's the update for last week.  Hopefully this week will be better.

I can't stand cold and snow either. I turn into a vegetable and hide under blankets. ;)

Sounds like you're moving right along with your goals. All in all it seems like you accomplished a lot this week.

Let's do the weight thing together. In the last few weeks I've had some great days but there were to many NOT great days that kept me from losing... and I gained some too. This week, let's ROCK!
