I bought this booking thinking to myself, “Hey I don’t need to make plans so the execution should be cake!” Right…right?! Nope not right. Instead of actually following the very useful checklist within this book, I have just browsed them. I do have a few attempts at week 1…also. I’m feeling a little dejected now. It’s okay that’s all about to change friends. I attempting it again, under your ever watchful ambiguous eyes.
Welcome to week 1…again, but the first for here.
I am uncertain how much I can list without getting in trouble, so I’m giving you the ones that may be problematic. So out of the 10 goals I am already doing about 4, with out really trying.
I feel that this shouldn’t really be that hard. Just in case I do have a mini plan, which may defeat the purpose of buying a book with plans. Oh well.
Goal 1: At least 7hrs of sleep
Concerns: I am currently working a swing shift. So I need to get to bed pretty much as soon as I get home to get my 7hrs. I don’t get to sleep in because I’m still a mom. My son wakes up and then there is no end to the chaos, plus my daughter has to get to school somehow. Sadly, I’ve been doing a poor job of it because she has been perpetually 15mins late. The other problem is it’s hard to go to sleep once I do get home.
Plan: I may be able to shift my work hours a hour or two earlier (the bonus to where I work). Also, if I lay off of the caffeine after lunch that has to help.
Goal 2: Exercise
Concerns: I am a little strapped for time. So I hate to spend it on me. I know I’m speaking crazy, but I can’t get myself out of the habit of thinking this way. I have learned it’s a mom thing. We have a lot going on with our extended family right now too.
Plan: I think if I work out at least once every three days at the minimum it won’t be so bad. I also won’t feel as guilty.
Goal 3: 2 minute break alone, 3x daily
Concerns: I don’t even know how I’m going to remember to take these breaks, I don’t have a set routine. Not only that, but I don’t ever think I am ever really alone. It’s hard to go to the bathroom without the kids breaking in on you for the silliest things. You know I’m speaking truth right now.
Plan: I will schedule an alarm on my phone. If I can’t go take a break, I’ll just snooze until I can.
Those are my thoughts before starting this whole thing. Wish me luck.
