or two, or three, or four…
I always tend to aim WAY too high on my goals – I’ll want to accomplish 10 things and then get so friggin’ overwhelmed that NOTHING gets accomplished. This can be related to weight loss, stuff around the house, crafts, pretty much everything – except work for some reason.
But I’m an inveterate list maker. Lists make me both happy and stressed, but generally more happy than stressed. Every time I decide re-start my weight loss/get healthier plan, I start with a list of things to accomplish in a month. So a couple days ago I started my list. And it just kept growing. So I decide to break it into multiple months. Still too much. So today I decided to scrap that list altogether and (hopefully) never revisit it.
But I feel like I need goals. So I have decided on the following four for the next 30-days (May 9 – Jun 9).
1. NO CANDY (this will be hard!)
2. NO Diet Soda (this will be not so hard)
3. Walk Dutch 1x a week (have to overcome my laziness and using knee pain as an excuse)
4. Pool exercise 1x a week (ditto)
This starts tomorrow mainly because of this:
The candy fruit slices always seem like a better idea than they actually are. And in my defense I did have an actual lunch before I delved into the bag of candy.
The shrink also wants me to work on actually feeling my feelings (don’t laugh – it’s hard!) rather than trying to push them off, or fight them. Let’s just say I don’t like feeling my feelings.
In other news, I have until June 19 to get my house unfucked. Why June 19? Well because on June 20 I have a cleaning service scheduled to start!!! The first clean is a deep clean, and I cannot wait!!!! What does unfucking mean? Well – I need to do a TON of de-cluttering basically. So I’m trying to follow the advice from Unfuck Your Habitat – it’s awesome. So expect updates on that progress for the next few weeks – and if I’m feeling brave, maybe some before and after pics as well.
