Accountability April Ends

| No Comments
It was a mixed bag this month, with some goals me, others ignored and some good observations. I was aware of them and that was good. Here are my charts, which I posted on the fridge, filled in daily and backfilled after I returned from my travels in the US:



I'm thinking about my goals for next month - I did pretty well on eating veg and not too many cheese toasts, but I really went all out with the sugar  with mutliple chocolate and other sweets every day - so cutting back is going to be one of the May challenges. 

And practicing my skills every day so that I hit each one at least once a week. That is the main thing I need to work on. I hope that a chart to track that will help me achieve it rather than feeling like a nag...

Accountability April

| No Comments
Tod left for adventures in India yesterday. He will return in June. 

After I returned from farewelling him towards the airport, I cried hot tears of abandonment and self-pity then fell into a funk. It would be so easy to stay there, depressed and lonely, bingeing on social media and movies, and eating nothing but cheese toast and pickles. But I do not want to spend the next ten weeks like that - it's really not me. So I am making the rest of this month into "Accountability April" for the following goals:

  • Daily workout plus an hour of activity (walking, biking, training, etc)
  • Decluttering via #minsgame and my Minimalism and Decluttering group on Facebook
  • Eating healthily, which means cheese toast <  once a day and salad/veg > once a day.
  • Drink fewer than 7 drinks a week
  • Decreasing my metabolic age to 35 (it's currently 42 according to my magic scale)
  • Pass my 原付 test and buy a scooter
  • Blog weekly or more (wow, right)
  • Complete one painting
  • Stay on top of work tasks and household repairs.
That is a lot of stuff for 26 days! But I can definitely do it. I will make some charts with stickers, because as childish as it may seem, they really work for me. I will report back here weekly on my progress and that also helps me stay accountable. Watch this space.
