Motivational Monday & My 5 for Five

I love Smiling in Second Grade's Motivational Monday idea!! What a great way to start your week!

Thank you Pinterest for helping me keep this in mind...

I'm linking with Jenn & Jessica this week and posting the top 5 on my to-do list. Hopefully this will be the motivator I need to get it all done!

1. Finish my Nutcracker activities. I really want to get this finished so I can actually use it this school year!

2. Go to the gym Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday this week. Of course I need to get my Zumba on, but Wednesday I also need the trainer from hell to help me work out. Eric, I really do love what you're doing for my body, but my mind doesn't... that doesn't sound good, but well, I guess you guys get it (or at least I hope you do....)

3. Focus on the growth of my blog and Facebook pages. I need to remember not to get down on myself and focus on what is going right. Guess that means improving my mental attitude this week.

4. Start (and possibly finish) my Christmas Eve pack. I want to create some activities for my students to do on the 24th. It will keep them busy if they're traveling, or doing something other than watching television or playing video games. I think it'll be a great start to their break!

5. Eat breakfast (even if it's just drinking a smoothie) every morning this week. I was doing really well for awhile, but it was a quick slip last week.

If I'm going to complete goal two I better run - I've got to get to the gym!


  1. Maybe I should link up with 5 for five- I need some motivation to get my list done!

  2. I love your Christmas Eve idea!! Too cute! Thanks for linking up with us :) I'm a new follower...hope that helps #3 ;)
