Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets to feel like I accomplished something for the week.
Usually I have an overly ambitious idea of what I can get accomplished during the week. This week, I feel like I did much, much better at actually accomplishing what I wanted to.
I tried something a little different this week: I have three fairly-intensive, writing-related projects I want to work on. And, instead of trying to get a little bit done on all three of them on Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday, I assigned each of them a day to be my focus (along with other random things that come up, of course).
I felt much less overwhelmed doing this, even if I didn’t actually get to work on all three projects (due to unforseen last-minute stuff that could not be helped). I feel like I was much more able to actually focus on the project at hand, instead of being mentally divided between three.
I feel like I had a pretty productive week, although I’m not sure how that will translate to this list. let’s see:
Continued with my meal prep/healthy eating/workout routine (I’ve lost 7.1 lbs total so far!). COMPLETED ALL OF MY SCHEDULED WORKOUTS! This is actually a big deal for me, because I am the world’s worst about talking myself out of workouts. “I coughed one time this morning? Oh, I better skip my workout. I must have the flu….” Not joking. This is what my brain tells me. But I got four cardio sessions in, plus two strength training.
I hit the gym on Tuesday and Thursday, my BFF and I did 5+ miles on the trail on Saturday, and over 3 on Sunday (mostly walking, but with running intervals as well both days).
I worked 3 full days at the job, plus a meeting on Tuesday that was supposed to last one hour, but lasted three hours (because we were all chatting). Also the reason I didn’t get any writing done on Tuesday…because it was writing or the gym after the meeting, and I went to the gym.
Cleaned my apartment.
Re-arranged the spare bedroom by moving the bed and dresser, thereby creating much more space.
Made an agreement to sell 5 boxes of Star Wars toys to an online toy store, and got them mostly boxed up and ready to go out on Tuesday. I still need another sturdy box or two from work Monday, and I need to print shipping labels. (When I got divorced…um, I think 13 years ago, the ex left his rather extensive toy collection behind. Which has been in storage since then, and which I am now trying to get rid of. These 5 boxes are the ones still in packages. The rest will be going on Ebay–what I don’t decide to keep, anyway. I also have some stuff of my own to get rid of.)
Ah…I think that’s all I accomplished this week.
