After spending almost five days up with family for the holiday, it is time to get back to work! I’ve got a lot of catching up to do. Catching up can seem annoying and overwhelming. My advice when in these instances is to think about how I’ll feel once it is all over. I will feel freaking awesome when the list is all caught up.
Personal: I’m launching a new blog chronicling my stomach adventures and food recipes. It will be therapeutic and fun. This week I’ve got to get three blogs ready to post. Stay tuned!
Health: I’m trying to survive one more week before a new doctors appointment. I’ll be combining a Low Fodmap diet with a no gluten, grain or dairy diet. Yes, there is still plenty of good food to eat.
Financial: It’s my final four weeks of teaching for the year. I’m readying up my accounts to send off to my CPA and zeroing out any bills I have. Getting ready to start 2017 off nice and fresh.
Business: I’ve got a couple of programs I am launching for 2017, three retreats already planned and getting my clients set up before the holidays.
I had an amazing four days chilling with my family and dogs! It is so important to take the time just to do nothing. I’m pretty freaking grateful.
Holy Freaking COW! There are only 10 more weeks left in 2016….Thank goodness 2017 is available. I’m going to need it.
I just reviewed my goals for 2016. There are some I have decided to bump to 2017 because I just couldn’t fit them in. Not that I didn’t make time. I didn’t have the time. As you know this past month I made some room for more. These are the things that I am looking into checking out with this new “room” I have:
- Improve class
- Read more books
- Speaking appearances
- Camping trips
This week I am tying off a few projects and chewing on a few new ones to launch in 2017
Health: continuing to work on this new herb regimen and focus on stress less to help my stomach heal
Financial: paying off some big retreat bills and looking at 2017 needs
Personal: having more brunch with friends and date nights with my husband
Business: lots of follow ups since I just spent a week in a Pilate world hanging with fellow teachers, presenters and friends.
Is there a goal you still want to work on that will carry over to 2017?
This week is my first real week out working just for myself. It’s still a transition. I am focusing on eliminating projects that no longer are in line with my purpose. Reconnecting with friends that I have wanted to have coffee with but my schedule didn’t allow and gearing up for a big week next week! I’ll be teaching at the annual PMA gathering in Phoenix, AZ!
Business: I’m making sure that Pilatini®Nights and my upcoming UK Retreat are getting out in the eyes of those who need to hear about it!
Financial: I am meeting with my advisor to make sure that with all the new changes I am on track to do the things I want to do when I want to do it!
Health: I’m hoping to get back in with my stomach people. I’m still not where I think I should be. My stomach still is showing that it has not healed yet. I wanted to just give upon this goal last week. I had a few nights of just horrid pain but I don’t want this to be my “normal” so I must continue the course!
Personal: I passed my final module assessment for “The Work”. This was the hardest one for me! I really went for it and it paid off. Now, it’s all about making sure I get stronger as the workshop is just a few weeks away.
Here’s to you and your goals this week! xx~LL
Wow, last week flew by! The combo of a Holiday Monday and extra exciting news kept me busier than ever. During these buys weeks I am so glad I have reminders and my goals where I can see them.
Health: I am a few weeks out of another test to figure out what is happening. So, I am sticking to my no sugar diet and most of the time life is pretty good. I am excited for the end of the month to hopefully get results that will allow me to finally cross this stomach thing off my list!
My workouts and training for the work are going great. I have them all sharpie’d in each week. I have never felt so strong in my life!
Personal: Brad and I took the last weekend to be with each other and our dogs. Our puppy Bayon is so well trained for a 4 month old. This week my Mother is visiting and so we are doing extra extra stuff this week so we can enjoy her visit.
Financial: Money in and Money out. But, Bills mean business. So, another week of working the plan!
Business: I am launching something big! Fingers crossed it pans out. I’ll keep you posted. My hubby and I also launched our podcast and this week it’s episode 4. When you’re an entrepreneur it’s always about watching the pots and when one boils being ready. Here’s to a few boiling at the same time!

I’m literally sitting in the desert at Joshua Tree. I haven’t had a shower since Friday. It’s been an adventure, like any camping trip should be. We rolled in later than expected and had a rough start to our holiday weekend. Coyotes howling and birds squawking combined with the sun beating into our tent to early for two people on vacation. Waking up with a stress hangover from the night before I was determined to get the holiday back on a good foot.
Soooo…I pulled out a legal pad and a pen. I reviewed the work I was doing compared to where I felt I should be. Then I asked myself what I felt needed changing and got honest about a hamster wheel vs a journey. It’s easy and safe in the hamster wheel.
I’ve been working for myself for 6 months. It’s easier to see a bigger picture now that I’ve been rocking my own business. Things I thought might be too big to dream are happening sooner than expected too! So, I get to dream bigger!!! I’m actually super excited to get home. Not just for a much needed shower but so I can get online and start working on my new game plan.
Sometimes things don’t go as expected. Grab a piece of paper and take back control!
Life is back in full swing. A wedding, work and my birthday are here. In the schedule and asking for attention. It’s easy to drop new habits to quickly handle the opportunities that arise. But, my goal is to use these opportunities to strengthen my new habits. So, a few schedule changes here and there and wah-lah. All is well and now I can enjoy the nuptials of my friend and have my birthday cake too!
Health: my yoga teacher is out of town. I took advantage of his absence by going to my friends classes.
Personal: Operation consolidation is in full swing. I am free of an extra checking account.
JobLove: Filming a workshop and submitting applications for these workshops to offer continue education credits.
If you take a look ahead you can pretty much make room for anything extra that comes your way.
