Weekly to dos: six

Each week I’ll post a portion of my to do list for the coming week. The following Monday I’ll update you, hopefully with pictures, and share my list for the next week.

Last week's to dos

Last week’s list contained more items than my usual list because I wanted to push myself to optimize how I spend my time. I was moderately successful I with the list. To remind you:


  1. Complete the pantry challenge from the January Cure. – I was at home for only three hours this week so it just wasn’t doable (I know: excuses, excuses!).

Blogging and Websites

  1. Keep up with new requests to list blogs on nigerianblogawards.com.Done, but barely—there are a few submissions that don’t quite fit so I need to follow up with those people. Requests are coming in daily, which is nice.
  2. Keep up with inquiries concerning the Nigerian Blog Awards.Done
  3. Post second blog post on goodnaijagirl.com. – Nope; this week, by God’s grace!


  1. Re-listen to Steve Harvey’s Act Like a Success, Think Like a Success* audio book.Done
  2. Read chapters 4-8 of Joyce Meyer’s Change Your Words, Change Your Life*. – Done; I’m really enjoying this book
  3. Do the reading for my Tuesday bible study.Done!
  4. Walk for at least 30 minutes at least three times. – 2/3 of the way there: I went out on Monday and Thursday, but I didn’t manage to squeeze in another day
  5. Make at least three green smoothies.I had them on Monday, Saturday, and Sunday (image below)



  1. Go shopping for new eyeglasses.Done for the second time (I previously went eyeglasses shopping in September). I’ve put a pair on hold that I like but I’m hesitating to commit to since I keep the same glasses for 5-6 years, so I like to be sure I’ve chosen the right ones.

This week's to dos

Because we’re entering the final week before nominations close for the 2014 Nigerian Blog Awards, this week has fewer to dos:

    • Because my house is so small I feel like it wouldn’t be as good as walking outside but maybe I’m wrong. I prefer walking outdoors because of the fresh air and I feel like I’m actually going somewhere—probably why I’m not fond of the treadmill or elliptical.

  1. The pantry challenge is always re-introduced to your weekly list! Loool!
    Maybe not, maybe I haven’t been following your lists with diligence. It might be a continuous thing. Am I right?
    P.S. you have really nice, glowy skin! :)

    • Lol it’s the second appearance of the pantry challenge on my list, but your comment is the entry boost I need to make sure that it doesn’t appear a third time!

      Thanks for the skin compliment! My skin type is oily so maybe that’s the cause of the glow; that and good old natural lighting.

  2. I wondered about the glasses thing too…Glad it’s finally sorted! Well done on getting so much done.

    And just an idea for the walking, I sometimes walk a bit instead of getting the bus, and I have a pedometer on my phone. Somehow, having a daily numerical goal forces me to walk. I love receiving the ping that tells me I’ve achieved the goal, so I walk even more, resulting in a virtuous cycle lol!

    • Whoa! The bus tip is such a good idea—it takes me about 35 minutes to get to my parents’ house by bus but I wonder how far I could get if I walked for 30 minutes! I’m going to try this tonight!!
