Fitness Friday and a Scrapbook Giveaway

Still moving along here.
Exercising 4-6 times a week at least.
Only had one soda this week.
No fast food.
So I am meeting my current goals.
Time to kick it up a notch.

I am setting a goal this week to be in bed by 10:30 on school night and lights out at 11pm.
No screens allowed after 10:30 for sure and probably earlier.
It depends on texting time with Mike while he is out of town during the week.
We always text at bedtime.

Otherwise, it has been a pretty uneventful week.
And by that I mean nice and calm for the most part.
Was able to cross a lot of items off various to do lists, so that is a plus.

Tonight is date night and I am super excited about that!
And we are supposedly getting 2-4 inches of snow on Sunday which the kids are super excited about. :)

Now on to my giveaway...
My die cut storage is now officially organized and complete. But in the process, I put together a huge bag of die cuts that I have doubles of or know I won't use.
And it's not old stuff either. Some of it is definitely from newer collections like "Kiss, Kiss" by Crate Paper. There are a few chipboard and vellum pieces in there as well. Brands include Crate Paper, October Afternoon, Dear Lizzy, Amy Tangerine, Shimelle, and Making Memories.

If you are interested, just leave a comment below to let me know and I will pick a winner next Monday or Tuesday.
Have a great weekend!

    1. I set my alarm for 6:40 which isn't super early on school mornings. But most days I don't drag myself out of bed until 7pm. I started taking Vitamin D (recommended by my doctor) because I was so tired all of the time!

  12. Good for you for maintaining your goals. I would love to have a sleep goal but for the life of me I am doomed to wake up every 3 hours, whether I like it or not. Another one who need not be entered.

  13. I hope you enjoyed your date night :)
    Must feel so good to have your die cuts all nice and organized :)
