My Goals: Week of Feb 16

So, my second weekly update. I am so excited. Along with at least 2 content posts and a picture, I have started the goal of measuring my goals here for accountability.

I’m keeping my goals shorter this week with the hopes I will update my progress throughout the week!

  1. Create a nighttime routine. I’m not getting any younger. I need some kind of retinol cream and way to relax.
  2. Hit the gym 3 times. Self explanatory.
  3. Home Project #2. Hang a mirror. Find a way to store my jewelry.
  4. Buy myself some flowers. Bringing love inside in small memorable ways.
  5. File my taxes. Let’s hope for a refund this year!

And in case you were wondering, these were my goals for last week:

  1. Put myself first. PASS. This time I really though about what I wanted without giving 2 fucks about what others thought. I missed a friend’s birthday party and skipped out early on a weekend work event. I needed to rest. I went to get at 8pm 2 days this week. Crazy hours and personal drama have kept me a little on edge. It was good to listen to my body for a change.
  2. Make my own lunch. FAIL. I did make my lunch more than I have in the past, but it was not all 5 days. I realize the key to this success is meal planning, which makes me feel like a 42-year-old divorcee. Tomorrow I am buying a crock pot and putting in my Fresh Direct order. I hope to use the extra day off to organize my apt, including my kitchen.
  3. Spend time with my man. PASS. My puppy Bernie has not been at his best. We spent time together at the vet which resulted in about $700 in vet bills. That’s $70 per pound. He has bladder stones and a collapsed trachea. He will be getting a harness and special food.
  4. Reconnect with friends. PASS/FAIL I got a chance to catch up with The Playwright, but everyone else basically got the boot. See #1.
  5. Home project #1. PASS! My ex installed my curtains and when they came falling down to the ground, where they stayed for weeks. I finally got the balls to fix something for myself.
  6. EXTRA CREDIT: Get rid of 5 things. FAIL but there’s hope. Gonna use this extra day to get something done!
