Goals Are Good

I think I’ve made a very wise decision to participate in NaBloPoMo, National Blog Posting Month.  It gives me a goal to work towards.  I’ve talked many times on BCDC about needing to focus.  This will be an additional tool in that effort.

Goals For July 4th Weekend:

In an effort to not bite off more than I can chew, I’ll start small and just work on this upcoming weekend.

1. Spend at least 1 hour each day in sorting and packing.  

Even though I’m not working, the weekends still seem different and are less structured than weekdays.  I will try to get something accomplished in the area of S&P.  I accomplished a lot last week, but then got off track.  Making myself work on it on the weekend will help keep my mind in the game.

2. Stay on track with my eating.

Although I’ve been doing really well with my eating, I’m starting to feel like I’m headed out of control.  With the Holiday weekend here, it could lead to trouble.  I stocked up on fruit and Saturday will be my prep day.  Cutting and chopping.  I do really well with lots of fruit available to snack on.  It keeps me away from other things. 

3.  Get back to meditation.

Meditation really helped me to focus when I was doing my 40 days.  I need to do it again.  I WILL do it again. 

Today is one of those days where I woke up at 2am and couldn’t get back to sleep.  I’ve been up since 3am.  This was happening a lot but hasn’t happened in a while.  I find it very frustrating.  I think getting back to my meditation will help this and get me better able to focus on my goals.

Friday started with my blood tests.  Not being able to eat since 8pm Thursday night made me very hungry and Very thirsty.  After exercising, Ralph suggested breakfast which was my go-to breakfast of late, scrambled eggs and sliced tomatoes.

After that I spent most of the day with Gail and Alice doing something that we love to do…”junking.”  I was proud of myself that I did not buy a lot.  I got one real treasure which unfortunately is out in the car so I can’t take a photo at the moment.  I’ll share it tomorrow.

I’ll be off to my Weight Watchers meeting soon.  I feel that I’ve been very good and hope for a good result at weigh-in. 

No photos today, so I searched for one I hadn’t used before.  It’s me with my favorite little guy, little Michael! 

Of course, it was outside a restaurant…Eating is Always Involved!!

Everyone have a Happy Saturday!! 🙂

    What kind of 4th of July weekend goal list is that? Where is “see some fireworks”? “Have a picnic”? (that park is perfect) “Attend a parade”? Sheesh!

  2. My goals for the weekend are: sleep in, go on long walks with the dog, clear out my fridge. Mine seem easier than yours! 🙂

  3. I participated in NaBloPoMo in June — it was a great exercise for me. Your goals are awesome — me? Drink wine, nap and eat (I am on vacation! LOL)

    • Thanks, JL! I got one accomplished yesteday…stayed on track with eating. There’s always today!! I like the idea of NaBloPoMo. Keeps you going when you commit to something, I think. Enjoy vacation!
