Weekly Intentions #8

Weekly Intentions this week finds me at wanting to really just getting some things done!
1). Read, Read, and READ SOME MORE!!!- I devoured the first two Percy Jackson books...and part of why was I have the Kindle app on my phone, and that's convenient. But I used to carry a book everywhere before, and dang it!!! I can do that still! No excuses!
2). More weights- part of this relates to my Sunday post, because I would like to be able to do FIVE push ups (good ones) by the end of the month. Also, I only did one weight based exercise last week, and one the week before. Weights burn more calories, but more importantly build more muscle.
also...
3). Squats and Lunges- I hate them. I wish there was something else I could do that would magically give me their results...but until then, I need to push myself to do them (**sigh**)
4). RUNNING...again- I've been speed walking--which is still really great for you--but I want to get some more running done and improve my time.
5). Create more Space- I was blessed with some FREE shelves from my co-worker, and since apartments are tiny, the extra space it will create some much needed space!

Any way, here's to this week! Hope yours is:

    1. Thank you Kim! Trying to vary it up so I don't plateu, and, to I get more of my body in shape!
      And yeah, it's sometimes hard to get back on the reading track as an adult isn't it?

  2. I like pilates for leg sculpting, although it's not as good for butt toning. And kudos on the reading! I'm also doing really well with my reading intentions. Helps having new books I'm excited about reading.

    1. Oooh! I need to try Pilates! I have this ballet exercise DVD for some slimming, but I haven't tried Pilates at all some how...just yoga. Are they very different?

  3. Definitely some great fitness goals! Mine are to stay committed and to be consistent with my workouts all January.

    I saw the first Percy Jackson movie and was surprised that I liked it but haven't checked out any of the books. Maybe I'll have to give them a read!

    1. I'm trying lady! Staying committed is mine too. I find that for now, Fitness has to be NUMBER ONE--before hanging out even--if I have any hope for success.
      The books are pretty fun! There is a LOT missing in the movie, and I saw the first movie when it came out and didn't really care too much for it, but I started reading the books in December, and BREEZED through them! They are super fun!

  4. I need to clear an exercise space over here! I dread running, but should definitely start doing so myself.

    P.S. Do you know about the book blogger swap? I posted info on my blog if not. I felt the need to ask this haha.

    1. Hi! Thanks for coming by!
      I like that blogger swap idea!
      Also, for exercise, if you dread running--which I did/do too, but trust me, runner's high is LEGIT, and totally addicting--but, YouTube has a lot of FREE exercise videos!
      I will do a post about some soon, but in the mean time, check out this post: http://www.joiefatale.com/2013/11/ck4c-or-cardio-and-kettle-bells-for.html
      and, this one: http://www.joiefatale.com/2013/11/newvember.html

      Hope those help :)
