Monday, Monday

Monday, January 17, 2011

Went to one year birthday party for baby Orin yesterday, and ate so much bad stuff that I had acid reflux last night. Will try to be positive and instead of downing myself, just consider it a learning experience. Want to weigh myself on Mondays, and now I am afraid to. But I will soldier on!!!

Goal for today
1. Return to healthy eating. 1800 calories at the most. - yes
2. Use pedometer and walk 10,000 steps. - did 8000
3. Continue and possibly finish organizing computer room. -- no
4. Don't forget exercise ball and yoga. a bit with ball, too tired for yoga in evening
5. Print these goals out and refer to them through the day. - forgot to do

Sunday 1/15/21 Taxes

Sunday, January 16, 2011

Just realized I have to get the tax stuff ready for myself and for my mom. Her estate is so complicated, I just dread it. I go to my computer room, and instead of making real progress, I find myself organizing business cards from restaurants, doctors, shops. How stupid is that? but it is comforting. Also, my taxes may be messed up because I retired this year. I hope I paid enough, I do not want to have a penalty. I have so many little papers and I have to look at each one, decide to toss it, or save it, and then put it in a place where I can retrieve it if I am saving it. Otherwise, why save it?

This process is ripe for stress eating. Ripe for it. So, my goal for today, is when I get frustrated with my "organizing", go take a walk. I bought a pedometer and I am trying for the 10,000 steps a day. It is very motivating to have the feedback from the pedometer. I found a great one, you just put it in your pocket. Yesterday, I did 5000 steps.

    You are braver than I! I just got a pedometer and gave myself a goal of 5,000 per day to begin. Good luck with your goal........ emoticon

Taxes......maybe hire someone to do it? Sounds like it might be complicated enough that it would save your peace of mind. Just a suggestion.
