I was going to say this was my goal list for the year, but I think maybe I’ll try this for the month of July and see how well I do. So far I’m doing pretty well so I’ll stick with what works. However, if I’m able to do these things easily enough then I’ll have to amp up my game for August.
Write in the morning. This means blog posts, postcards, stories or anything that requires creative thought – I count this as writing. Twitter and Facebook posts do not count. It’s no secret that morning, before the day officially begins, is the best time to get your ideas down. I didn’t succeed today as well as I’d hoped. It’s so easy to play online rather than use it as a productive tool sometimes.
Take a walk each day. Since I do exercise often, I’m not particularly worried about getting to the gym. However, since I’m not able to jog these days (yes, the ankle is still reminding me that it’s not healed), I can only ride a stationary bike. Also, the need to go out each day is even more present when it’s been so nice outside.
Eat better. Cooking healthy food is expensive and inconvenient. The price of fresh ingredients is more than ready-meals of more than low fat food. Plus with the time to prepare, plus my ability to burn things easily, it’s not as easy to eat healthy as popular culture would lead us to believe.
Read a book a month. At least one during the allotted check out time the library gives me. This will keep giving me ideas for my own writing and give me the fun opportunity to review the books I find. I’ll have to include those points in my future reviews.
These are my objectives for the next 20+ days. It’s a good start, again, since I’m able to get these things done if I stay on a schedule. (Oh how easy it is to get off of a schedule.) The days I’m not going to the gym, I’ll be taking my walk and working on writing more. With that said, it’s time for me to get cracking.
