#thursday3 - 2.6.2016

It's June already and I am a little bit scared that I have little time to do all the things I wanted to achieve this year. I need to do a review of my 16 goals for 2016 this month.


1. I am currently reading 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R.Covey again after more than fifteen years since the last time I read it. The habits are totally relevant now more than ever.

2. I am so obsess doing more than one workout program at a time. Right now I am doing 21 day fix extreme and Focus T25.

3. I am feeling excited about work. I am determine to improve our workflow proses at work. We have all the tools but somehow we forgot to use it.

Think about it this way…If you take one picture and write down three facts each week — at the end of the year you’ll have more than 50 photos of yourself and 150 facts about what life has been like. It would make such an epic All About Me book — and most of the work is already done." -

May Favorites // 2016

  • I am obsess with hitting 10,000 steps a day with fitbit alta. I am not sure if this is good or bad for me. At least this got me to move more.
  • I am loving 21 day fix extreme this month. So much that I decided to continue to Round 2 in June. I am don't know how I am going to fit this workout into my Ramadan schedule but I am sure going to try.
  • I am rereading Getting Things Done by David Allen. I just can't get enough of this book. Every time I read, I learn something new.
  • I love the new cover for Erin Condren notebook this month. I can't help but order one for myself and my daughter. 
  • Apps I am obsessing this month is A Colory Story app , Phonto and Keynote app. I am currently creating a few flash cards for my son using Phonto and Keynote. It's so easy and I do them anytime, anywhere. 
  • I setup my digital planner on my ipad and I have been using this planner more and more this month
  • My favorite book of this month is The Guilty by David Baldacci.  I haven't read much book this month. Hopefully things will pick up in June.

Ramadan Lists // 2016 (1437H)

In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful

Ramadan is only one week away and I am so excited to meet Ramadan again. I pray to Allah that I am able to meet the month of Ramadan and healthy enough to perform my "ibadah" as intended. 
As a list maker what better way to celebrate this holy month by making a lists. My word for this year is FOCUS and lists can help me focus. I don't want the month of Ramadan passes me by without doing anything about it. Everybody knows that 29 days can go by pretty fast. If we don't plan and capture the memories we are going to miss out on a lot of beautiful things around us.

  1. Eat dates during sahur and iftar
  2. Recite Quran every chance I get - 5 times a day after solah is a must
  3. Listen to Quran recital during that long drive to work
  4. Organize and tagging digital photos. Keep the best ones and delete the rest. I need to clear our some space to make room for daily ramadan photos and for Eid
  5. Read a new book
  6. Clean out my closet to make room for new outfits
  7. I decided to continue taking a photo a day during Ramadan. I just want to capture everything that I can about this special month
  8. Setup a simple workflow to capture photo and document them daily. I am going to use my blog as a place I document #ramadandaily 
  9. Intentioanlly drink 1.5 litter of water after iftar and 1.5 liter of water during sahur. I still have to maintain 3L of water daily
  10. Salah Tarawih every night either by myself or with my kids. Hopefully I can inspire my kids to embrace Tarawikh
  11. Take supplement like Vitamin C, Calcium, Omega 3 or Primrose Oil 
  12. Catch up on One Little Word assignments
  13. Write and capture life little details on Dayone app
  14. Taking the stairs daily at work. I still need to move even though I am fasting. 
  15. Organize and clean my computer at home and at work. I like that there's less activites at work during Ramadan. I have a lot of time to do some cleaning up and planning
  16. Eating less and move more is still my goal this month
  17. Continue doing Project Life
  18. Plan a healthy meal during Iftar and Sahur
  19. Start daily zikir habit. I have been meaning to start zikir habit but somehow I seems to forget to do them. What better way to start a habit other than in Ramadan. 
  20. I am still planning to do 21 day Fix Extreme workout program. I still have a long way to go in terms of weight loss. 
May Allah help me and easy my way during Ramadan. AMIN.

What are your goals for Ramadan? 
Any special preparation and planning for the month?
