While my husband enjoyed his stay-cation I figured I could slip in stuff. What I managed to slip in were naps. I did slip in a night sorting through agents for a very narrow field. I just feel guilty I didn’t do that more (naps are awesome and addictive). I did think about my schedule in regards to time, which I’ve been out of sync with and losing, and the goals that seem to go against all that. I thought about it, but couldn’t really think how to fix it, so I’ll be doing that on the fly this post.
And for some reason I thought it would be a great idea to join NaNoWriMo despite my certainty at failing. The material I plan to write is actually less than 50k. If I finish it, I still won’t make the goal. Click the link in the first sentence of this paragraph for more details or here to add me to your buddies.
Old Goal: Read 30 pages or 15% or some combination there of a week
Why this is failing: I can’t find time to read. I prioritize other things in its place when I have “free time.”
New Goal: Read for 30 minutes every Friday. (Other days are total bonus.)
Old Goal: Study 5 breakfasts and 4 lunches per week
Why this is failing: Because on Monday and Wednesday I have yoga and I’m rushing in the morning to get kids to school, eat, and take care of pets, I’m not sitting down to eat and there’s no time to study while I eat those days.
New Goal: Study 3 breakfasts and 4 lunches per week
Note: Last yoga class this session is 11/24 and then comes Thanksgiving break. Not sure when the next session of Yoga will start, but I’ll resume 5 breakfasts if it isn’t right away. If it is right away, I’ll be keeping it at 3.
Old Goal: Walk to Yoga and/or Weights and Walking (M, W, Th, F)
Why this is failing: Weights is the issue in this goal. It’s supposed to be in this 10-15 minute window of time, after I’ve only been awake about 10-15 minutes. The cold changed my motivation from “exercise” to “seek warmth!”
New Goal: Walk to Yoga (M & W) and Walk (Th & F)
Yogurt Drop: In your food bowl, Queenie.
