Internal Style Check Up

I had planned to wait until the appropriate day to post this new feature, but I am just to excited! Recently, I have been joining My Pretty Pennies in a Weekly Money Check-Up Survey. Originally I just thought it was a neat concept, but I now look forward to filling out the questions each week. It is not only a great way to track my spending, but it has helped to make me feel accountable for my spending. Money is not the only thing in my life though that I have recently found myself trying to be more in control of. The changing of seasons from Summer to Fall always seems to re-ignite a bit of a fire under my butt, and inside of just roasting in the flames, this year I decided to do something about it! I've filled my Recipe folder with healthy recipes, and have created a work-out schedule full of just getting up and moving! Outside of just eating better and exercising more, I also want to keep working on being a better person as a whole. Sometimes, the best thing you can do for yourself is to sit down and think about your accomplishments! Each week ( likely Friday's) I want to do a feature I am calling, ' Internal Style Check- Up'. This will be a series of 5 questions ( similar to the Weekly Money Check-Up Survey) that I have created to help me reflect on my week, and keep myself on the path to better living.
This feature is open to all! I encourage anyone who is interested to also post the survey with your answers on your blog. If you do, I would love to be sent a link in the comment section so I can see your responses. This winter I pledge to Eat Better, Feel Better and Live Better! I will post the 5 questions for answering each week now, but I won't be actually answering them until the actual Feature day until Friday. Let me know what you think! I'd love to hear some thoughts on this new feature.

1. I'm most proud of myself for ______________ last week.

2. The best thing to come out of my oven last week was ____________.

3. I sweat the most last week when I ___________.

4. One thing I did for myself last week was ____________.

5. The nicest Compliment I received or gave last week was _____________.

These check ups you do are great! the money one especially! I think it is so great to just check in weekly so that things don't just slip up on you! this is something that I should absolutely integrate into my fall and winters, (well summers too maybe!) to make sure I continue to do things that make me feel happy and not let those nagging blues creep up. thanks!

i think this is a great idea, you're doing all the things i'm trying to do - cut down on spending, eat better, exercise more - so i'll be trying answering the questions!
Great blog btw, i'm following :) x
