    It was so hard for me to narrow down my goal list this week! It’s the kind of week where I want to have at least 10 goals a day– but I have to remind myself to take bite-sized pieces!

  • Erica Barker says:

    thanks for the link up. I hope you have a good trip. I’m switching to WordPress and a new site this week. Yay! It was a surprise from my husband.

  • Way to go on your goals!

    Thanks for the link up! 🙂

  • You really accomplished a lot last week!

    I love your pile of books.

    I hope your Allume session goes well. I’m sure it will! I was in your session last year and loved it.

  • Shelly says:

    This week I have plans to try out a new recipe, get my regular exercise in which I haven’t been doing very well at this past few weeks. I also want to work with the kids on a project we started last week. I was only able to get 5 of my goals accomplished last week but I am going to work harder to get more accomplished this week.

    I hope you have a great trip. I wish I was going to the Allume conference.

  • Jen says:

    You got a lot done last week!

  • Last week was a good week, finally. Got several things crossed off. However, this made me hesitant for this week and I don’t want to crash and burn.

  • I was really hoping to see a race picture! I am sure you did great. My major goals this week are to figure out if I can swim or do pilates or some other type of cross training while letting this muscle strain rehab. I tried to run last Thursday after 3 weeks off and it really hurt, I had to stop. Now been told to wait to December to run. Besides that I have two books to read (one being you discipline e-book I just bought it this morning). I also want to get some crafts made and posted in my craft album on Facebook, made $46 so far this Christmas shopping season from the early bird shoppers. I also want to put together a basket full of my homemade items for my husband to take to work with him, all tagged and with a price sheet as well by weeks end.

  • Here’s my goals for the week and how I did on last weeks goals:

  • Nicole says:

    Wish I lived closer so I could go to Allume! You really need to figure out how to livestream ALL of your speaking events. 🙂 Prayers for a great event!

  • Gretchen says:

    Thanks for always encouraging us to do better and to set goals.

  • Maureen says:

    You’ll be in Harrisburg? Only two hours from me. Wish I could attend the conference. I read Erasing Hell and Wrecked. Loved both of them. Wrecked was especially good. Have a great conference! Enjoy PA (you’ll be really close to the Hershey Factory — Put that in your budget!) It’s a great state.

  • Gina says:

    I got the audiobook version of Wrecked! I can’t wait to start it. I plan to begin it next week. 🙂

    I’ve been wanting to read Erasing Hell, too. I have it on my Kindle along with other Francis Chan books. (I’ve only read Crazy Love so far.)

    Congrats on your 5K run! 🙂

  • Sarabell says:

    I’m so interested in Pinterest Power! I’m self-marketing almost exclusively through free social networking tools and I use Pinterest but haven’t really seen many traffic redirections from it yet. I hope you’ll let us know what you think of it!
