This is actually a post I saw on Sprinkle of Glitter's blog. You write 7 things you wish to achieve in a certain amount of time. I am going to be doing 7 Things in 7 Days. I'm also a sucker for making lists to this sounds fun. Sorry if I waffle on at first!
On Mondays I will list 7 things I wish to achieve through out the week and at the end of the week (Sunday night) I will blog about how I got on. Then on the following monday will post a new 7 things and start the process all over again!
I am doing this in the hope to motivate myself and stop me procrastinating at every opportunity.
Dance: I hopped back on the "Slimming World without actually going to a group" diet last week, My family have been going for years and through them I've learnt it backwards so I don't bother going along but If I fail to really get anywhere this time I may consider joining officially even just for the moral support. In 5 days I have lost 2lbs (Not bad considering thursday night involved brownies and cookies!) Along with the diet I am trying to exercise where I can but as the Gym / Pool I go to involves someone with a car It's hard to go regularly. However I recently got my hands on a new XBOX 360 with Kinect and as I had heard good things about it I took the plunge and ordered Dance Central 1 and 2. A lot of the music isn't to my taste but I can deal with it in the hope it might lose me some weight.
Use Dance Central at least 3 times this week for at least 20 Minutes
(Ill start off simple as my asthma is pretty shocking sometimes haha)
Blog: I've been pretty M.I.A for a while so my aim this week is to blog at least 3 times. I also want to start some regular features and think of new and interesting things to blog about that doesn't involve me going out and spending money.
List: I have been telling people over at my Peppermint Puff Fan Page that I have a collection coming out for nearly 3 months, despite the collection being finished and photographed I STILL haven't listed it on Etsy so my aim this week is to get cracking and get it listed!
Research: I went to the library for the first time in years last week and decided as I need to save my pennies, that rather then buy books I might not read I would borrow some helpful ones and try and learn from them. I bought a book on Photography Lighting (Despite having a degree in the subject I think it's always good to keep learning) I also borrowed one on beaded jewellery as I've not made much jewellery involving wire, elastic and small beads. I'm more of a eye pin and pendant kind of girl. So I wanted to learn some unique and fun techniques that I can use to create different types of jewellery.
Craft: This week I want to do something crafty! Be it decorating my positivity jar or take ideas from Super Scrimpers, I want to try and create something that doesn't cost money or that costs very little.
Clean: SPRING CLEAN THE KITCHEN. I have been putting this off for ages, maybe it is because it doesn't feel like spring yet or maybe it's because I'm too busy playing video games. Either way I have to get cracking on with the cleaning!
Write: I am a huge fan of writing letters but I don't often have anyone to send them too. My other half now lives 5 hours away on 3 trains so we have started sending each other funny fictional letters. Which to anyone else seem like madness but to us are very special. It's currently my turn to send one back so my aim this week is to finish that and send it to him!
So thats it 7 things! The list was a lot harder to write then I thought although I am rushing to finish as I'm off to work in a minute but hopefully next weeks will be more thought out!
Thanks for reading!
