It’s Monday. Monday is the day I planned to post on the work I’m doing on my challenges and moving forward. It was not a really great week. A front was moving in and it was such a bad week for pain and sleep that I didn’t really pay attention to the challenges, I felt lucky to get my usual stuff more or less done. Finally Friday night I got some sleep then pretty much slept through the weekend.
But I still learned some stuff. I learned that my compromise goal of less distractions while eating is not going to happen – at least not easily. Perhaps I need a sign to remind myself because I’m still finishing my meal and realizing that I was doing 3 or 4 other things. Some of the time I remembered and that’s progress, I guess.
I learned (or perhaps reminded myself is a better way of putting it) that I really, really hate writing down what I’m eating. I gave up early in the week. I’ve done it before, obviously. I know writing it down helps – at least it keeps me honest. Maybe I’ll go back to Calorie King and use their tracking system. I still have several paid for months I’ve not been using.
I still haven’t gotten to the closet. It was just a bad week to even think about doing that.
Creative ended up being cooking again. I made great meatballs – I think this will be my regular meatball for spaghetti. I freeze them and just pop out a few when I need them. And I’ve decided to try doing Meatless Mondays. Tonight was a nice vegetable curry. Pasta is just too easy. I have, however, joined Pinterest and I’m thinking I want to make a fairy garden terrarium. That’s going to have to be done in stages, partly for financial reasons and partly because I’m not sure what I want to do yet.
Oddly, I’m still doing pretty good with the no fat talk rule. It’s often there in the background but I’m silencing it. Cool.
As for next week’s challenges? I think that these goals have been a little too broad. It’s easy to just give up for the week once I’ve forgotten one of them a couple times. Still, they’re things I need to be working on. At any rate, I’m rethinking my goals and I think I’m going to do some more specific tasks. So, you could say that my first goal for this week is to come up with some specific daily goals. Not sure I want to have one every day of the week, but we’ll see.
