Wow…my 4 simple goals really resonated with you guys.


I’ve have found it quite liberating.  And surprisingly productive.

Healthwise I’m finally feeling like my old self again, but still get wiped out much more quickly than I did if I try to do too much.  Ask me how I know! 😉

But here’s a quick round up of how my 4 simple goals have panned out since my last post:

Eat whole

On the days where I’ve cut myself some slack I’ve really achieved this goal. I’ve been cooking from scratch again, which we all love, and I’ve really enjoyed taking the time to make something lovely.

At the weekend…it all went a bit haywire. I tried to get too much done and ended up flooring myself.  So much so that we actually ordered take-out on Friday, but instead of just pizza we ordered more healthily, so still an improvement there.

I have soup on the stove as I type so things are looking good for this week already.

Get moving

Yay!  I managed two CrossFit sessions last week and it felt good. I’m considerably less fit than I was before I started CrossFit…definitely a “two steps back” scenario. But…I’m back and I’ve a session planned today.

This one I’m taking super slow. I don’t want to force it and risk injury, so I’ve really scaled down the workouts.  But they still feel good.  Safe, but good!

Practice creativity

I’ve done a little sketching (and no…I’m not sharing…Button draws better than I do!).

I’ve finished a dress for Button…I’ve just not had the opportunity to photograph it on her yet.

And I’ve got a project on the sewing table that I’m really hoping will work out…because it will be my favourite project of the year so far if it does.  But I can’t share any more than that right now.


This has been really impactful.  I’ve just done a little at a time.  The hat drawer.  A bag of papers that needed sorted.  Slowly, slowly…and yet this weekend we put six large boxes in storage from the sewing loft.   It feels good and gave me the space to start packing up the next six boxes.

It’s an incremental change but it’s making the house look and feel less cluttered. Which is a good thing.

So this week I’m planning more of the same.

Have you made 4 simple goals?  How are they working for you?
